THE BACKBONE OF ANY CENTRAL VAC SYSTEM
Central Vacuum Tubing is used with all residential Central Vacuum Systems (CVS). The Tube is set up in all the room walls and all lead back to the main Vacuum System centralized in one area of the house.
The 2" PVC central vac tubing is different in size and design from plumbing grade tubing, what is called Drain, Waste Vent tube (DWV). Central vacuum tubing is 2" OD and is manufactured with a completely smooth interior to prevent the tube system from catching small dirt particles and precipitating a clog. Central Vacuum manufacturers and industry professionals do not recommend the use of DWV for central vacuums for many reasons.
A New Standard - ASTM F2158
Maybe money is not the issue and you still think that using plumbing pipe for your central vacuum is a good idea. Before you start the CVS project you might ask another group of folks - your local code inspectors. Some local code inspectors that once ignored the materials used in CV Systems now know to look for the ASTM F2158 standard that is marked on them (only CVS tube is marked with F2158, not water pipe). If you're using the wrong materials, or materials without the correct ASTM markings you may be required to pull all of the unmarked pipe and fittings out and start all over again. Excalibur’s Vacuum Tube is made of Hi-Impact materials and exceeds the standard for Crush Test ratings.
