what is an in house vacuum system?
It's a poor stand-in for an electrolux, that's what it is.

In Australia ( and UK, I think ) hoover is a verb, as in...I hoovered the living room carpet.

Except living room is lounge room in Australia and UK.  So that would be I hoovered the lounge room carpet.

It's a giant vacuum/extraction system that services the entire 100 yards of detail shop that I run. Two 50hp turbines run a wet/dry system that I use to vacuum carpets and upholstery and extract moisture/water from the same. It has drop down hoses at every work station for convenience - far superior (and more powerful) than any puny electrolux you can find (Orek is a better home vac anyway).
Hey, nice marmot!

Besides the fact that your last statement is patently incorrect, you and I both know that while an in-wall system has plentiful benefits, you're experiencing one of it's common drawbacks right now (my parents' system, on the other hand, just seems to lack power).

Face - I am not sure you understand indusdtrial vacuum systems but its cute that you are trying. The flooding occurred when a dipshit plumber attached a recirculating pump accidentally to my backflush lines.

I do actually, as you may remember that my entire family are tradesmen. I've seen a couple of these in mechanics shops. While clearly almost no common vac is useful in a shop, there are certain advantages to a nice wet/dry over the in-wall because of the relative ease with which the whole system can go down. My attempts at connecting this with domestic versions were at once an attempt to show my spite towards in home systems, my love of electrolux and to potentially send you into a tizzy. Sadly, despite what reaction I did get, it does not appear the third bit was successful. Feel free to go on bitching that you're plumber is unskilled when it comes to reading pipelines.

Its all about power and the fact that I have 32 work stations in my shop. Eurovac systems are highly durable and reliable. I don't think you can blame the frailty of the system when someone plumbs a line into it and applies pressure where none was before. Shop vacs are too fragile for the kind of workout we put our equipment thru everyday as I was forced to use them for couple of months before this system was installed. I burned out 60 shop vacs in 4 months. They can't handle the daily grind of cleaning 250(+) dirty repos daily. And electrolux is as over rated as The Usual Suspects. :P

Learned that there are a decent number of adult films featuring plumbers.
