Holds Debris In HEPA-Filtered Pail or Bag

Clean your home more effectively than ever with the NuTone Central Vacuum PurePower 600W Power Unit. As the standard model in the PurePower series, the PP600 Power Unit features a hybrid "FlexCollect" design, allowing you the option of collecting debris either in a disposable bag or in the pail without a bag. Whichever option you choose, the Power Unit ensures your home stays clean from dust, keeping all debris securely enclosed by a HEPA filter sealed with glued seams.

  • Designed to cover homes up to 7,000 square feet
  • Sealed HEPA filter provides superior filtration for clean air
  • Hybrid collection system offers bagged and bagless options
  • Holds 6 gallons of debris; needs emptying only every 6 months
  • Oversized pail handles make bag/pail removal quick and easy
  • No muffler required; sound suppression reduces noise to 68 dB
  • Includes wall-mount bracket for easy, secure mounting

When you develop your central vacuum system with the PurePower 600W Power Unit, you can clean your entire home, even the indoor air, with ease. A step above the older NuTone central vacuum power units, the upgraded PurePower models feature better suction, quieter operation with ULTRA Silent Technology, and improved debris collection design. With a 1-stage motor that delivers 600 air watts of power and 125-foot water lift, the PP600 Power Unit is robust enough to cover up to 7,000 square feet of space.

What is a Central Vacuum Power Unit?

As the heart of a NuTone Central Vacuum System, the Power Unit is a motor that wall-mounts away from the main living area, like in your garage or basement, and connects to special tubing run throughout the walls of your house. This tubing connects the motor to in-wall outlets installed at convenient locations in different rooms. All you carry around is the vacuum hose, which plugs into and receives power from these outlets.

About the PurePower 600W Hybrid Power Unit

As part of the PurePower series, the PP600 unit features a powerful thru-flow motor whose sound is effectively muffled by high-performance sound-absorbing material. The motor is nearly silent when installed in a basement or garage. This makes PurePower motors quieter than their competition, as well as the older NuTone vacuum motors.

The PP600 hybrid model collects debris either in its large built-in pail via cyclonic operation or in large 6-gallon 2-ply disposable filter bags (sold separately), which slide over the pail. The bag is made of electrostatically charged filter media and captures particles down to 0.10 micron at 85% efficiency. With such efficient filtration, you won't be spreading dust around, because the smallest particles are exhausted to the exterior of your home!

Additional Features of PurePower Motors

All NuTone Central Vacuum Power Units provide superior soil removal, filtration, efficiency, and minimal carpet wear. The motor's internal sound suppression system also significantly reduces noise, so you won't hear it through the walls.

When it's time to replace the debris bag or empty the pail (typically every 6 months), the Power Unit's oversized handles will make the process quick and easy. Simply release both latches on the sides of the unit, grab the handles, and remove the pail, which holds the bag. The full bag slides off easily, and the new bag slides on. Just put the pail back, close the latches, and you're finished!

The PurePower unit features a multi-directional vacuum connection for easy installation even in small spaces, and provides a 6-foot power cord for versatile power connections. A wall-mount bracket is included for simple, safe, and secure mounting.

Compare NuTone PurePower Motors

NuTone offers a complete line of central vacuum motors to suit any size home. The key specification to consider when choosing a motor is water lift, which determines how powerful suction is at the end of the vacuum hose. The higher the water lift, the better the suction.

This is especially important as outlets get further away from the motor. In a 7,000-square-foot home, for example, the motor needs enough water lift to create effective suction at the end of a hose thousands of feet away from its power source.

Today's Most Efficient Way To Clean!

With their powerful motors, NuTone built-in central vacuum systems pull dust, dirt and allergens from the living environment more effectively than portable vacuums, trapping them within the filtration system of the power unit, away from the living environment. The central vacuum system can also be used more effectively to "power dust" furniture and living space by removing the dust from the living areas rather than just moving it around. And unlike conventional vacuum cleaners, a NuTone central vacuum system is a long-lasting built-in convenience that actually adds value to your home.
