Basement & Radon Solutions installed a Sub-Slab Horizontal Exterior radon system. Installed on the right exterior of the home. A diagnostics test was performed to analyze the pressure extension field below the slab. After diagnostics for system performance, a 5″ diameter hole was drilled through the right
end of the foundation wall to just below the interior concrete slab. A suction pit was then created. A 4″ schedule 40 PVC suction line was installed in the foundation wall and sealed. The radon fan was then mounted on the exterior of the home with the vent pipe extending to just above the roofline to help expel the 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. We also installed a manometer – Vacuum gauge on the radon vent pipe. Homeowner monitoring gauge to insure radon fan is operational. Lastly, we preformed a post mitigation test that came back at 1.7 pCi/l!
It was a pleasure helping Carl make his home happy, healthy, & safe!
