Central Vacuum Clog or Line-break

When your’re calling for service, its helpful to know if your system is clogged or if you have a broken line. Clogs are caused most commonly by picking up something larger than you should have. A break in the suction line is usually caused by work performed in the attic.

When you have a clog in the system, you usually still have good suction when you place your hand over the end of your cleaning hose. If you place your hand over the end of the hose and your system does not seem to build up suction, this usually indicates a break in one of the air return pipes.

If you suspect a clog, check all of your outlets in the house. A clog can cause some of the outlets not to work while others seem to work fine. A break in the line usually effects all of the outlets.
