Basement & Radon Solutions installed a radon mitigation system for Mike. We installed a radon piping system below the existing encapsulated crawl space liner. The radon piping system was extended to the right exterior of the home. After installing the piping system below the encapsulated liner, the liner was sealed with an equal or greater quality liner and was taped to seal the encapsulation. A 4″ PVC pipe was then extended from the crawl space to the exterior of the home. This is where the radon fan was installed, then the vent pipe from the radon fan was extended to above the roofline to expel the radon gas safely. We also 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 for Mike that came back at 0.4 pCi/l!
It was a pleasure helping Mike make his home happy, healthy, & safe again!
