Hey guys, has anybody tried any of those wet dry central vacuums, such as drain vac or aqua air, and it looks like itís a really simple design, so someone could easily convert a central vacuum into a sort of similar set up

They're good but they're INSANELY expensive. If used for residential, never add water and soap mounts inside the house. I've heard they're more problematic. Personally, I'd rather use a wet interceptor or at least a wet/dry Shop Vac to clean up a water spill. I'm gonna stick with using a bagged or a cyclonic central vacuum.

Sears had one in mid 60s by Whirlpool that would flush dirt down the drain every time it shut off.I think a 1965 catalog had a full page explaining it.

No it's not mine. I wish it was because it's better than my inverted filter system that I have.

Use it as a Near-industrial carpet shampooer, although it makes me wonder if these kind of systems are sold to older people similar how Kirby does
