Im interested in parts, TurboBright Airduct Cleaning and Air Care CE1958D Cable Vac Hose (operate by a drill), the purpose of cleaning airduct. For this purpose, I'm looking for an appropriate machine to attach with the above parts for maximum cleaning effect.
What is the optimal CFM and Water Lift Power required to get the best airduct cleaning effect and which machines that meets these criterions fit best to deliver optimal airduct cleaning results?
I would also like to understand how to determine the optimal trade off between CFM and Water Lift Power in the airduct cleaning process in the context of the above cleaning system and more specifically what roll Water Lift plays in that process and similarly what roll does the CFM plays in this process?
Finally, with above parts attached with the appropriate machine you recommend can I achieve superior cleaning effect to the Rotobrush Brush Beast (540 CFM there 3 size hoses 2.25, 1.5, 1,25, and it have 4 vacuum engine and 2 separate 15 amp circuits for the two power cords)?
What effect that the length of the hose have on the required water Lift Power and CFM and how does different lengths of hose affect the CFM and Water Lift required?

That is a lot to ask in one post. You want a training class and vacuum and one on air duct cleaning. Few folks, if any, are going to be willing to spend time and finger power to type all that out.

Here is a little on vacuum power. If you know electric, this will be more helpful. Think of Lift (can be measured in several ways including water column) like voltage. CFM is like current. Either one without the other does not accomplish much.

Lift is the "push or pull, the force moving air through the hose. CFM is the volume that is being moved. When one is at a maximum the other is at a minimum. The balance point or most power is provided where the two lines cross. Slightly different for every vacuum and for every arrangement of hose.
