The VacuMaid® split canisters are the most unique central vacuum on the market. With the power unit separate from the dirt canister you can place the two in separate locations. It is best that the power unit be placed in a remote location to further reduce any motor noise and place the dirt canister where it is easily accessible. These units use ultra long life motors for superior performance. Split canister systems are especially good for people with pets. With the split system most of the hair is collected in the bottom can, but some may make its way to the top screen. This screen can easily be cleaned by removing the top lid and wiping away the hair. With bag systems hair from pets will easily clog the bag reducing its performance and cleaning ability. The bottom cans feature plastic liner for clean and easy emptying.
