Hide a Hose Retrofit
I have an eight month old house built with a Dirt Devil Pro Series 990 central vac with 8 standard outlets. I find myself putting off vacuuming because i don't like dealing with winding up the Hose (I know...laziness at its finest. So, I emailed a local installer of hide a hose to see if it were possible to add a single HAH outlet on the main floor of my house since it is predominantly wood floors and I'm tired of changing my hose three times just to do the floors on that level. He quoted me $1,000 for a single 40ft outlet. This seems pretty high to me. It includes retrofitting the HAH outlet into my traditional system, the 40ft hose, sock, and handle for use with straight suction tools. Based on your experience, does this estimate seem reasonable?
