I was thrift shopping and noticed a rainbow looking hose with a wessell werk ebk340 power nozzle. I looked around and there was this cannisters vacuum. It was a hyla EST. It had 3 hoses. The power nozzle dry hose, wet hose for straight suction and a wet hose with a water line connecting to the vacuum. The water line hose looks to be a carpet water extractor. I bought it for $15. The motor runs good. I used it with the power nozzle and it did quite well. The only issue is the water tank has a hairline crack.
I plan to clean it up and resell it. I'm wondering if anyone knows where to order a new water tank. If anyone has one or knows how to find one it would be greatly appreciated.

Hyla has a USA website. Maybe use search or use the contact form to see if they have parts for the EST?

I know the EST I think is 2 models ago (not counting the latest one). I'm not sure how long HYLA makes parts for older machines. But it's worth a try to contact them.

Oh crap

You're right. In my mind the NST was latest one but it's the EST.

For the link I'm emailing them about parts. I just need to get the vacuums serial number.

$15 is a good price for all that.

Good luck in selling it.

The EST has only been out for about three years. It's the model with the brushless motor.

The hyla is a decent machine, as with many water vacs, it's overpriced if you buy it new. I did get my GST new at a somewhat discounted price since I knew I wanted it and they didn't have to do a demo. When the EST came out, they wanted $1200 for it and that was including trading in my GST, I chose not to take it, the main difference is the brushless motor and that doesn't matter that much.

the latest HYLA I read is only 700 watts. What in the world are they thinking? Based on that it sounds like the older generations have more power.

A brushless motor (switched reluctance) does not need to consume nearly as much electricity as a model with carbon brushes. After all, the circuit board takes the 120 volts AC and converts it to DC through the capacitors. Running the machine without the hose uses the most electricity. Cutting off the airflow (like putting your hand over the hose end) uses the least electricity. Motors fluctuate in the amount of electricity they need depending upon several factors.

brushless motors

One advantage of brushless motors is that they generate much less heat, so they are more efficient. The water vacuum with the best price is probably the Sirena, unfortunately Quantum discontinued their canister cleaner and that's a shame because it was a great machine at a really good price, I'm glad I have one.

My gripe with the Sirena (and to that extent, the Hyla) is the short electric hose. I understand it has to fit in the small box with the power nozzle and electric wand, but 5 feet is just too short. Love the extra long hose on the Ritello.

The other water vac with a brushless motor is the Delphin.

You don't hear too much about the Delphin anymore, I'm not sure it's even sold here.
