  • Has anyone heard of vacgroom??

    I found vacgroom.com and it sounds pretty interesting to me. I was wondering if anyone has heard of it or tried it before. It seems cost effective as opposed to buying a clipper vac. I already own one cv but me and my helper are constantly sharing it and it becomes a problem.

      That's similar to what I just ordered from Hanvey. Man I wish I'd seen that before I ordered Oh well at least now when I get my trailer and upgrade to the taxi vac I won't have to spend as much because I'll have all of the attatchments I need.

          Jadenlea is right...

          Shopvacs are way too loud. That hose will be connected to the clipper and you use it around the dog's ears...way too loud. Even if not near the ears, it's way too loud.

            My boss made own herself out of a shop vac, and it is loud, but not any more so than the HV...And the loud noise isn't coming out of the nozzle, so most dogs are perfectly fine with it.

              HAHA. My shopvac is in the back of my trailer with all the other mechanicals. The hose is fed through the wall, so it is quiteter than my HV.

                Looks like something I might try. I use a clippervac now but cannot afford one with everything else I'm getting. The way the new shop is set up it can go in another room and my husband can hook up a switch and the hose can come through the wall. Sounds like it will work until I can buy a clippervac.

                    But is there not noise from the end (at the clipper end) that makes that suction noise?

                      Spikey, I use an iVac and the noise doesn't seem to bother the animals any more than the sound the clipper. If they are new and seem spooky I will let them listen to it before I start on them and then they are fine. I thought you used some type of vac system.

                          Got Those!

                          Hi! Yep! I've got those! Believe it or not I have not used them! I bought them many years ago, because I have wanted to be a groomer forever! (long, boring story) Anyway, I'm sure that they are not as easy to use or efficient as a clippervac, but I think that they are probably okay for a cheap substitute. I have the feeling that if you were super busy that you would want to get a clipper vac instead though, for efficiency. I don't think these look as easy to use a clippervac for some reason. I don't have enough experience to say exactly why though. I plan to have my shop vac in a closet to help keep down the noise and also I plan to keep cotton in my clients(the dogs) ears in case the sound travels through the hose. Sadly my last furbaby went to heaven, so I can't try these out for now.

                            I am hoping to call the company tomorrow and get some more info. I think I will be ordering them. It's much more affordable than a second CV. I could use and extra CV but can't afford it.

                              Just a hint so you don't forget the cotton is in the dogs ears when you are done. Put a piece in one of your ears.
