  • PP500 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely satisfied. Replaced the canister from an old brand that was over 30 years old. I know the Nutone and Broan name as around for a long time with quality products. The price was good and liked that it was available from Home Depot & Cooper Electric for parts if needed. Instructions were good and am glad I purchased this unit opposed to another brand. Hope it lasts as longs as my older unit that it replaced.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very powerful. This unit is so powerful that I need to lift the end off the floor (decreases suction) to remove the coupling from the wall socket. My only concern is that the motor unit becomes very warm.

    I have to unfortunately replace a 4-year old VX475. Does this use the same input/output tube locations and spacing? Thank you.

    Asked by: Cowboy Sam
    Thank you for your question on the model PP500 central vacuum system. The input/output connections on the PP500 will not match up exactly with the input/output connections on the VX475. You will need to do some adjustment. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 888-336-6151 if you need further assistance.
