i got my vacuflow estimate. not happy...
i researched through the help of these forums and came up with what i think are the absolute necessities for our new build. i met with a dealer in our area and he came up with this bid which includes something called a VROOM box in the kitchen. it's basically a powered box that sits inside a base cab with an extending hose inside. i didn't care for it at all. you have to bend down to the floor to get the hose. i preferred the vac pan. but the estimate i received says it includes the VROOM ...although i don't see it listed anywhere. i think i'm upset since this guy is just trying to sell me a package, so more "stuff" on top of what i asked for. i also asked for him to break down the costs of the items, which he did not do. on top of that, our house will be under 7500 sq ft. why do i need a motor that is for homes up to 22,000 sq ft? do i NEED this large a unit? TIA for any help, advice. does anyone have suggestions of online sources? i don't care if the system is vacuflow. i'm interested in a good unit that is compatable with the HAH. TIA! ...and here's the estimate:
