Basement & Radon Solutions installed a Sub-Membrane Exterior radon mitigation system for Alfonse & Gloria. A 4″ radon depressurization suction line was installed in the crawl space, an approved radon barrier covers the crawl space floor and then was mechanically fastened to the foundation walls. The suction line was extended to the right rear exterior of the home. The radon fan was then installed on the right rear exterior of the home. The radon fan vent pipe from the fan extended to just above the roofline to expel the radon gas safely. Varmint and rain guard PVC exhaust caps are installed on all Basement & Radon Solutions exterior radon systems that prevent rain, debris, small animals and birds from entering the vent pipe, guarding and extending the life of your radon system. If desired the exterior system can be painted in the future for added aesthetics. Manometer – Vacuum gauge was installed on the radon vent pipe. Homeowner monitoring gauge to insure radon fan is operational. Radon System Alarm – Radon System Alarms are now required on all newly installed 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. Lastly, we preformed post radon test that came back at 0.8 pCi/l!
It was a pleasure to help Alfonse & Gloria make their home happy, healthy, & safe for a new owner!
