Basement & Radon Solutions made Alan’s passive radon system into an active radon system. We started by installing a radon piping system below the existing encapsulated crawl space liner. The radon piping system was then extended to the left exterior of the home. After installing the piping system below the encapsulated liner, the liner was sealed with our 15 mil liner and was taped to seal the encapsulation. A 4″ PVC pipe was then extended from the crawl space to the exterior. This is where we installed the radon fan that is an RN3 and then the vent pipe from the radon fan was extended to above the roofline to expel the radon gas safely. Our 15-mil woven ground liner will control moisture vapor and dampness from the ground. Most crawl space liners are partially reinforced, our woven liner is 100% reinforced and tough unlike competitive brand liners that are only 10% reinforced. This product will not off gas (known on Google as “crawl space cat urine odor”, go ahead and check it out), we guarantee it!! Our woven ground and wall liners are antibacterial, meaning mold and other organic growth will not grow to our liner. We then installed a Radon System Alarm – Radon System Alarms are now required on all new residential radon systems. This unit is a vacuum monitoring device utilizing piezo resistive pressure sensor (PPS) technology. This alarm will provide an audible and visual indication to alert the homeowner when the radon system is not moving sufficient air in the event of a power loss to the system. Then, we installed a Manometer – Vacuum gauge installed on radon vent pipe for easy viewing. Homeowner monitoring gauge to insure radon fan is operational. Lastly, we preformed a post radon mitigation test that came back at 0.7 pCi/l!
It was a pleasure helping Alan make his home happy, healthy, & safe again!
