About Hide-A-Hose Systems
The HAH (Hide-A-Hose) system is ingenious in it's simplicity. When not in use the vacuum hose is stored inside the tube system that is hidden within the walls of your home. When cleaning is needed you simply pull out the length of hose you required, connect the handle and tools, and begin vacuuming. Each HAH inlet can cover from 700 square feet for a 30 foot hose and up to 3,000 square feet for a 60 foot hose based on your homes interior design. When your finished cleaning the suction from your CV power unit pulls the hose back into the tube system and out of sight. With the hose safely stored by the system you need only carry your handle and tool to the next inlet and repeat the process. Each inlet in the system stores it's own hose so you do not have to.
The HAH inlet system is available in four lengths of hose, 30ft, 40ft, 50ft and 60ft. Each Hide-A-Hose station requires (1) mounting bracket, (1) inlet valve and (1) vacuum hose. Installation of the Hide-A-Hose system is similar to standard vacuum inlets with special routing required for the Hide-A-Hose raceway tube system. The Hide-A-Hose raceway tube system also requires special elbows for turning which allow the hose to travel smoothly into it's storage position. Each hose will require a hose grip (Standard or Radio Controlled) and attachment set for for a complete Hide-A-Hose system. HAH systems have a higher than standard inlet initial cost but pay you back quickly with ease-of-use convenience that provides you with a cleaner home environment, less flooring wear, and more leisure time that is not spent cleaning.
New style H4000 Valves Included.
Requirements for installation vary by application. HAH Systems will require sufficient room for installation of the hose-tube raceway. The hose-tube raceway must be installed on a single plane which may require open areas above or below the living space such as an attic or basement. HAH systems require special long radius PVC fittings within the raceway but use standard PVC vacuum tube and standard vacuum fittings for connections outside the raceway for installation. Hide-A-Hose systems can be mixed with standard hose inlets and sweep inlets for a custom vacuum system that meets the homeowners needs.
For proper performance with hose retraction and tool operation a power unit model recommendation chart is below. A properly sized power unit is required for 100% coverage. A single power unit may operate up to 8 HAH inlets (non-concurrently). For dual operator (2 valve concurrent cleaning) applications or installations exceeding the maximum tube run allowance it is recommended that two power units be used.
POWER UNIT RECOMMENDATIONS
** Longest Tube Run = Distance to farthest inlet including raceway (not the total amount of tube used for all inlets) plus exhaust run, if any.
HAH Systems may be mixed with valves of other types including standard wall-inlets and sweep-inlets such as the Vacusweep. Each HAH flexible hose includes a hose sock and all hose lengths may be trimmed on-site for optimum fit and performance. Each rough-in kit includes a protective mud-cover for the valve mount during sheet-rocking and painting. HAH Systems are ready for new construction homes as well as pre-built (retro fit) homes. To learn more about the HAH system installation you can view the manual (PDF, 4.5M) for layout ideas and installation techniques.
Hide-A-Hose retractable hose management system brings a new level of convenience to central vacuum systems and with just a bit more planning than standard inlets can be used in almost any home or business (perfect for veterinary offices). Hide-A-Hose systems offer exceptional performance when coupled with a high power central vacuum that removes dirt, dust and allergens from your home while adding built-in value. If you have questions about the HAH System please contact the Vacdepot CVS Experts with your requirements.
30ft Hide-A-Hose: 707sqft Maximum, 636sqft with a 10% overhead loss.
*Overhead loss may increase with longer Hide-A-Hose systems as more objects (furniture, walls, cabinets, etc) will be between the inlet and the maximum distance. In some applications using a shorter hose with more Hide-A-Hose inlets may be more efficient and easier to operate. Use caution when planning a HAH system with 60 foot hoses. The excessive length of the 60ft hose has cumulative airflow loss which can result in poor cleaning performance with most CV power units. The longer hose also increases the weight and friction of the hose during recovery. If possible we recommend that you design your vacuum system with 50 foot maximum hose units. If you have questions about using Hide-A-Hose in your application please give us a call. Our Central Vacuum experts are very familiar with the Hide-A-Hose system installation and operation and can help you with planing of your system.
