What is the advantage of a integrated vacuum? Because the power unit is stationary, there is no heavy vacuum cleaner to lift or drag and no closet space is required for storage.

It also extends the life of your vacuum cleaner.

How powerful is the vacuum cleaner? It has a 5.5 amp motor with 100 of H2O lift. This is comparable with any top quality industrial vacuum cleaner.

How much dust does the bag hold? 3.5 kgs (8 pounds), depending on the type of debris. The patented
ribbed vacuum chamber allows the bag to fill completely without collapsing, thereby utilizing the entire bag.

What type of filtration does MarineVac have? MarineVac comes standard with a five layer
HEPA type filtration system that filters up to 99.97% of dirt, dust and allergens down to 3 microns in size. Great for allergy sufferers.

Can I vacuum up water? No. MarineVac not designed as a wet/dry vacuum. This is due to the HEPA filtration, which wet/dry vacuums are unable to accommodate.

Do I have to install it vertically? No, MarineVac is the most versatile vacuum cleaner you’ll ever own. It can be mounted horizontally or on its side as well as vertically

How does the MarineVac clean such a large area? Each MarineVac is a self-contained unit with its own motor and dust bag. With a 12 meter / 40’ hose you can clean an area from about 84 to 140 sq. m. / 900 to 1500 sq. ft., depending on the installation.

Where does the air discharge? The air discharges from the bottom of the unit. With MarineVac's high filtration system you can be assured that dirt will not be returned. Always check the filtration rating on ANY vacuum cleaner you purchase!

Why the stretch hose not a standard hose? Each hose has its own merits. A standard vacuum hose is lighter weight but it is inconvenient to store. With the stretch hose, it is quick to connect, making it ideal for quick clean ups, and it shrinks to just 1.2 m / 8’ and coils up to 38cm / 15” so it is simple to store. If you need to change from the stretch hose to standard hose please contact us for advice.

How does the MarineVac vacuum cleaner compare with a standard upright or canister? MarineVac units have more suction power than most of the standard vacuums in retail stores.

My vacuum cleaner stopped running. What should I do? The most common cause is a clogged hose or tool, so check that first. The motor is protected so it can not burn up and will require about an hour to cool down and reset.
