Tom contacted us here at Casement & Radon Solutions because his basement has a radon level higher than 10+ and he needed midigation.
Basement & Radon Solutions installed a Sub-Slab horizontal mitigation system. The radon suction line was installed on the left front exterior of the home. A diagnostics test was then performed to analyze the pressure extension field below the slab. After diagnostics for system performance, a 5 diameter hole was drilled through the left end foundation wall to just below the interior concrete slab. Then a suction pit was created. A 4″ schedule 40 PVC suction line was installed in the foundation wall and sealed. The radon fan was mounted on the left exterior of the home with the vent pipe extending to just above the roof line. 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. This is guarding and extending the life of the radon system. If desired, the exterior system can be painted in the future for added aesthetics. After that, we installed a Manometer. A vacuum gauge was installed on radon vent pipe in the garage for easy viewing. It is a monitoring gauge to insure radon fan is operational. By installing the mitigation system, the radon gas level was down to 3.0 pCi/L! It was a pleasure helping Tom make his home safe, healthy, and happy!”
