How do I choose a Ducted Vacuum Power Unit?

To ensure that you choose the correct size Power Unit for your Chameleon Retractable Hose System, it is important to remember that the system uses only one retractable hose point at a time.

Just because you have lots of retractable hose points, doesn't mean that you need a big unit.  The length of the pipe run to the fartherest point will determine the size of the Power Unit. To maximize coverage, install retractable hose points in central areas.

A well-located Chameleon Retractable Hose Point with a 15mt hose can cover up to 2,200 sq. ft. of living space. Selecting a Power Unit with strong suction and substantial airflow is important to provide proper hose retraction.
