How to diagnose low cleaning power

Customers call with a symptom called “low suction”. They typically mean that their system is unable to pick up dirt well or at least not as well as previously. This can be caused by any number of things from reduced airflow, a clog, hole in the pipe, leaking inlet(s), bad gasket in the power unit, debris inside tubing runs, a hose that is plugged or scratched on the inside…just to name a few.

Often we are able to ask a few questions and narrow down the potential issues and determine if a service call is required.

If you are experiencing this symptom call us and we can review the handful of simple tests we can instruct you to perform. We may be able to fix the issue over the phone and save the service call.
