Hide-A-Hose solves the problem of carrying and storing a central vacuum hose. Simply pull out the amount of hose you need and begin vacuuming. When you’re finished, the suction from the central vacuum power unit retracts the hose. Hose lengths are customized according to the size of the floor. Each inlet can cover up to 2300 square feet. Audio/video systems, microwaves, air conditioners, and dishwashers are integrated into your homes – why not integrate the vacuum too?

Installing in Homes with Central Vac

Typically, 50-foot Hide-A-Hose valves are installed in areas near all rooms with hard floors. A new HAH valve consists of a wall inlet and pipe run to the basement or attic where is it tied into any existing pipe run. The power of the existing suction tank is usually plenty to retract the central vacuum hose back into the pipe run.

Installing in Homes without a Central Vac

All new construction homes can be roughed-in with Hide-A-Hose. Unfortunately, changing existing central vacuum valves to HAH is not possible, because the existing pipe network has elbow connections that are too short. HAH connections are longer sweeping ones that minimize friction and allow the hose to move easily as it retracts.

We are excited for what the Hide-A-Hose Retractable Central Vacuum Hose System means to every homeowner’s vacuuming experience. Never again deal with another cord or hose when using this powerful common-sense vacuuming solution. It can be installed in any home at any time, and can be retrofitted into homes that already have a central vacuum system.


Eliminate hose and cord complaints. Use only as much hose as needed. Less vacuum inlets for quicker cleaning. Installs in existing homes and retrofits into vac systems. Suction retracts hose, no mechanism failures.


The major complaint of regular vacuuming is the electrical cord, and for central vacuuming it is the hose. But when homeowners try using the retractable central vacuum hose from Hide-A-Hose it quickly becomes a “must-have” appliance. No cord to wrap up, no hose to put away, no excuse for just getting the job done now because it is so easy. Simply open the inlet door, easily pull out any amount of hose, and then vacuum away. When finished, the suction alone retracts the hose into the vacuum pipes so there are no moving parts that wear down or need to be replaced in the wall or system. Hide-A-Hose is available in 30, 40, 50, and 60 foot lengths. One 50 foot Hide-A-Hose covers nearly 2,300 sq. ft. so there are less inlets needed than with the traditional central vacuum installation which uses a 30 foot hose.


New homes, as well as existing homes with or without a central vac already installed, can have the Hide-A-Hose Retractable Hose System. Installation uses standard vacuum pipe and longer sweep elbows and easily installs into 2×4 walls. Hide-A-Hose utilizes robust RF controls and air-powered tools for daily cleaning. Homes with wall to wall carpet can have both Hide-A-Hose and traditional vacuum inlets if desired. Traditional electric inlets power an electrical hose and beater brush for better wall-to-wall carpet cleaning.
