This homeowner had an existing Vacu-Maid system, about ten years old, in their large Oak Brook, IL residence. I was here to remove a clog and commented on how much quieter the outside exhaust would be with mufflers in the exhaust lines. This resulted in a return visit to install the mufflers and move the unit a few feet down the garage wall. Check out how much nicer the installation looks now:

The home originally had an old Filtex system (original brass inlets still in place), which at some point had been replaced with a Vacu-Maid P325 (you can faintly see the outlines of the brackets for the old unit). Heavy use caused that system to need replacement, which is when this one, a Vacu-Maid S3200 was installed. Very powerful, but noisy and the cyclonic separation in these units is inferior. I'll elaborate exactly what I mean in a later post...
