What is the float?
The float is the white sensor that hangs from the upper-tank into the removable dirt-tank. This float functions as a sensor that will alert you when the dirt-tank is full of water. Take care when reassembling the tanks to ensure that the float is on the inside of the tank. Don’t tamper with the float; it’s sensitive!
Will there be suction even though the hose is attached to the Blower Outlet?
Yes, the Suction Inlet will continue to have suction when the hose is hooked to the Blower Outlet. The Blower Outlet will blow air when the hose is hooked to the Suction Inlet. Attaching the hose to either the Suction Inlet or Blower Outlet does not disable the side that is left open.
