    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems like a good product This product is easy to install and has great vacuuming capacity. It is still too early to see overall performance. I had a Sears unit and it lasted 22 years. The nutone that I had before this one broke down twice before I decided to replace it

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy install, good power, similar performance to our original NuTone from 1991. Had to replace a NuTone central vac after 27 years of fine performance. The newer model was easy to install and has been operating smoothly the past 2 months. The power with this unit is equal to the original vac and no complaints with performance so far. New model was well priced comparable to other similarly sized central vacs.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unit should not be used without a disposable bag I have had the PP600 unit for 5 months. It was included with a new house. It worked perfectly until recently when the suction decreased substantially and the unit will not pick up dirt. I removed the cannister and it was filled about 3/4 way with dirt. Really a mess to have to empty the cannister into a plastic bag. But the suction didn't increase any with the cannister empty. I checked the cannister gasket and it was good. I then removed the HEPA filter which wasn't easy. It was extremely dirty and so was the foam filter next to the fan blades. I cleaned both of them as best I could with pressurized air and re-installed them. Still no suction. I now have to wait for the building contractor to fix this thing. I am beginning to believe the motor must be bad. I believe there wouldn't have been a problem if the installer had used a disposable bag to collect the dirt before the HEPA filter. That would have kept the HEPA filter from becoming so dirty. Nutone says the PP600 can be used without a disposable bag but if I ever get this thing fixed I will never run it again without a disposable bag.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great vacuum My other system broke and was under warranty. They replaced it with the NuTone and it works great. It picks up nicely on the floors and does a super job on the rugs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Significant Improvement We recently had a NuTone model PP-600 installed replacing our previous unit which was having motor problems. The P-660 provides a significant increase in the suction at the business end of the system, An additional advantage is that it provides this improved suction while creating about 10% of the noise associated with our previous system.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet, powerful This system is extremely quiet and it does a great job picking up the pet hair we have on our carpets and furniture.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great central vacuum. Very quiet and great suction. This system is a great system. This is the second one I have had. The first one lasted 28 years. I installed this one myself and it was very easy to do. It works very well and is very quiet. I recommend it to anyone wanting a great central vacuum system. I also bought a CS500 vacuum tool kit. It cost the same as the unit itself. I am very very pleased with this unit and kit.

    As a follow-up to the zx6000 replacement question, can you say why the pp650 is the preferred replacement? My home is only 3500 sq ft.

    This model (pp600) says it handles up to 7000 sq ft, so can you explain why you recommend the pp650?
    Asked by: Ron
    The ZX6000 by AirVac is rated for homes up to 7,500 sq ft. The PP650 is the only model to meet this square footage. If your home is 3,500 sq ft, you either the PP500 or PP600, however, you may notice a difference in suction compared to your ZX6000. If you need further assistance, please call Technical Support at 1-888-336-6151.
