Steve contacted us here at Basement & Radon Solutions about having elevated radon gas in his home.
Basement & Radon Solutions installed a Sub-Slab Exterior mitigation system for Steve. The radon suction line proposed was installed in the left front end of the basement slab. After diagnostics for system performance, a 5″ diameter hole was drilled through the concrete slab to the earth below. This is where a suction pit was then created. A 4″ schedule 40 PVC suction line was installed in the slab, sealed and then extended to the left front exterior of the home. The radon fan was then mounted on the left front exterior. The radon vent pipe extended above the roof to expel the radon gas safely. The manometer gauge (homeowner radon fan monitoring vacuum gauge) was installed on the suction line pipe in the basement for easy viewing. This 4″ piping system will reduce radon levels in the home up to 33% opposed to using a 3″ suction line pipe. We preformed a post radon test that came back @ 3.0pCi/l!
It was a pleasure helping Steve make his home happy, healthy, & safe!
