Question
Will I be able to repair my vacuum hose using Krazy Glue? The cost of a new hose is more the $100!

Answer
Hi Barb and thanks for your question. Honestly, Krazy Glue and/or duct tape never work. I think it is the dirt that gets in there. Also, glues are not made to hold up with suction. However, depending on where the hose is torn (& which hose it is), you may be able to remove it and rethread the hose into the cuff. Hose does thread the opposite direction of everything else. Counterclockwise will tighten it, clockwise will remove it.
 Otherwise, I am certain you can find a generic or to fit hose a heck of a lot cheaper than $100.! Just do a little hunting on the internet.
 Good luck to you, Barb. I hope this helps. Have a good day.

Expertise

Please ask me any questions regarding the efficiency, durability, and value of 99.5% of today's vacuum cleaners, residential and commercial. I am able to help, also, with your residential carpet cleaners and vapor steamers. I cannot answer questions such as "how much should I pay for my vac?" "how often should I change the bag, belt, filter?" or "how often should I vacuum?" , etc. I also will not advise you how to use equipment for other than its original application; including any disassembly or modification not approved by the unit's manufacturer.

Experience

I am the owner of a well-established (sixty-plus years), family-owned & operated vacuum retail and repair business. We are a full service/warranty center for 99.5% of vacuums manufactured. I, personally, have extensive hands-on experience with today's most popular vacuum cleaners, I have not only used the vacs in my own home, I have repaired them. I have been in the floor care industry for over 25 years.

Education/Credentials
I have attended certification seminars with the industry's trade association. My education, however, has been mostly hands-on, carrying on a sixty year old tradition in a brick and mortar 'mom & pop' location.
