I just saw the news today from DrainVac International online, they're the new central vac owners of NuTone as well as Broan and Venmar. They even have NuTone listed on DrainVac's website now. I already have mixed thoughts about this. The good is I really like the DrainVac company. The bad is I don't think they're going to change NuTone, it'd probably be exactly what Nuera Air did with Beam when they acquired them from Electrolux is not changing a single thing.

That's really interesting, they are kind of opposite. Drainvac is a really high quality central vacuum, I have several of their units, on the other hand, Nutone always seems to have been a budget central vacuum on the lower end.

Mike, that's probably the very reason DrainVac acquired NuTone - to have a lower end budget central vac offering.

There are better cheaper alternatives to NuTone like OVO, Husky, or Allegro. The Pure Power line is just trash in my opinion, I think it'd be wiser if DrainVac discontinued them. I would like to see if they can either change or use the existing designs, I know I wouldn't want them to go back to the crappy VX line. I also would like for them to discontinue their electric powerhead, it's also trash in my opinion.
