I really want a central vac system. I have two like 15 gallon shop vacs I want to plumb in my basement. Would be so nice. Even if I just had one of those sweep holes under the kitchen cabinets for all the dirt from shoes/boots.


I have this cast iron welcome mat grate thing with a chicken in the middle. It's like 14x22. I don't think it could take weight over a gap but I could do a box in the floor with angle iron supports and put it on top. Then I could sweep all the stuff into it and just take the grate off and vac it out. I have seen this type of thing in the entrances of lobbies on big buildings.

they make a special vacuum , its not super expensive and its made for it, by the time you build something for the shop vacs you will probably end up in the same place money wise.....
I have seen them installed and have been in houses with the system...
EH....that doesnt impress me, you still have to drag around 30 feet or so of hose....
my house is all tile and wood floor, so I just go around with a small shop vac and it works great...
the grate thing again, all that work for what? too lazy to use a dust broom and pan once a day??
you would be better off making a nice wall decoration with your chicken grate...

Camera it an see how its connected.
One could be a cleanout. Or the plan was to tie the vent in under the cabinet.
Or maby it was a pump n a pail rough in.

Id stick a camera in there to verify what im connecting to
