Standard Replacement, Fits Perfectly
This vacuum has a number of hoses on it, and they tend to tear or break with normal usage. It's just a natural fact of the plastic bending back and forth. The problem with this lower hose is that it moves more than any of the other hoses. With the other hoses, I just used duct tape to hold them together. It didn't look great, but it works fine, and it's cheaper than buying new hoses. With this lower hose, however, there is no way to tape it that still allows the brush head to remain in contact with the floor at all time. You have to replace it, but you will only need to do that if you use the machine at least weekly for two years. It will last that long under normal usage.
