Got questions about Chameleon? We have the answers!  And if we haven't answered your question below, feel free to contact us directly. 

Can Chameleon be installed in an existing home?
YES! In most cases, Chameleon can be added to an existing home. Our authorized dealers will discuss your project options.

I already have a central vacuum system, can I upgrade my system to Chameleon?
In most cases, yes! And you will still be able to use your existing valves. With our exclusive CamPort hybrid system, Chameleon hoses can be used in standard central vac inlets. Your authorized dealer will determine where a Chameleon valve could be added to your existing system and if any other modifications are needed.  

What's the difference between Chameleon and other retractable hose systems I've seen?
There are several main differences between Chameleon and other retractable hose hiding systems:

  • Chameleon provides a perfect seal at the end of the hose which allows for a consistent seal with NO leaking or hissing. 
  • Chameleon offers a full-sized swivel handle which allows you to do quick clean-ups without the  need to get another handle. Also, with Chameleon there's no need to stick your fingers in the end of the hose to remove it from the valve, you simply just grasp the handle and pull.  
  • Chameleon's dual seal-system does not rely on the door to seal. This means even if you're walls are imperfect, your Chameleon is always perfectly sealed. 
  • Chameleon was engineered to work with hose socks. Other retractable valves lock onto the actual hose with a clamp-style lock that grabs onto and stretches both the hose and hose sock. However the Chameleon locks onto the hose-end cuff, not the hose, so it allows the hose sock to freely travel with the hose and not bunch, while reducing hose stretch.  
  • Chameleon's design also prevents the hose from falling out of the valve. How? The Chameleon locks onto the hose-end cuff, NOT the hose itself.
  • Chameleon also reduces friction on the hose with a straighter, unencumbered hose path and a wear insert that’s made of slippery, low-friction acetal material designed to reduce wear on the hose and hose sock.
