Any cleaning set with the exception of the Compact Cleaning Set will work. That set's angled tube will not fit the CT AC standard hose. You'll also get an extra 36mm hose with the other sets.


As far as a recommendation, consider plastic tubes if you're going to be working around hardwood floors since metal could ding the floor if dropped. I'd probably recommend the Universal set.

Welcome to the forum. Is this the same Joe Dirt from Contractor Talk?
