Basement & Radon Solutions installed a Sub-Slab Exterior Radon System for Mark. The radon suction line proposed was installed in the rear basement slab. After diagnostics for system performance, a 5″ diameter hole was drilled through the concrete slab to the earth below. A suction pit was then created. A 4″ schedule 40 PVC suction line was installed in the slab, sealed and then was extended to the rear exterior of the home. The radon fan was mounted on the rear exterior of the home. The radon vent pipe extends above the roofline. The manometer gauge (homeowner radon fan monitoring vacuum gauge) was installed on the suction line pipe in the basement. This 4″ piping system will reduce radon levels in the home up to 33% opposed to using a 3″ suction line pipe. Then we installed a 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 a post radon test that came back at 2.5 pCi/l!
It was a pleasure helping Mark make the home happy, healthy & safe!
