What tools are required to install a central vacuum system?
A heavy-duty drill, preferably a right angle drill and bit that is at least 2 1/2″ are necessary to drill the holes for the pipe. A tool to cut the pipe is needed. We offer a pipe cutter which makes a perfectly straight, smooth cut; see part number 13505. A hack saw can also be used. Other tools include straight-slot and Phillips screw drivers, wire cutters, wire strippers, pliers, drill, knife and hammer.
