Twyla contacted us about her Mother’s basement that was flooding and had water coming in through the walls. This issue had been going on for years and had gotten worse. What had started off as a leak in one corner has progress to water coming in along an entire wall. Also because this home was her mother’s Twyla was concerned about the potential harmful effect of radon on her mother’s health.
Basement & Radon Solutions started by putting in a Fast Drain dewatering system. Then we installed a Pro-Series PS-C33 Combination Backup and Primary Pumps in the right front corner of the garage (as looking at the front door). Here are some details and benefits on this back up system- • Automatically switches to battery power when AC fails • Unique monitoring controller detects irregularities, sounds an alarm, and pinpoints problems and solutions on control panel • Primary pump with energy efficient PSC motor is continuous duty rated and water cooled • Primary pump controller allows for adjustable pump run time and exercises pump weekly to extend pump life • Dual float switches provide dependable activation for both primary and backup pumps • Backup will assist primary pump if excessive amounts of water are entering the sump • Maintains and recharges battery automatically • Alarm can be silenced during a power outage • Designed for use with wet cell or AGM / maintenance free batteries • USB Data Port and Remote Terminals connect to external devices such as a PHCC Pro Series CONNECT Module, home automation systems or other devices for remote notification.Then we also installed a Pro-Series Connect WIFI Module. Here are some details and benefits about the WIFI Module-• Pro-Series Connect WIFI module to receive real time alerts to your mobile device. • Receive pump notifications while away from home • Easily connects to the Pro Series PS-C-33 backup system • Connects using home WIFI • Sends an alert when there is a possible issue with primary or backup sump pump system • Sends email and text notifications to your phone, tablet, or computer • Ability to check status on Glentronics CONNECT® site • NO MONTHLY FEE • Mobile app allows you to see your PHCC Pro Series backup pump status and receive updates.After that, we installed our Premium 15-Mil white antibacterial premium 100% woven fiber reinforced wall vapor barrier on the foundation walls above the installed Fast Drain system. It protects against moisture, mold, mildew, humidity, and wall leaks. Moisture/water behind wall liner drains into the Fast Drain system. Then, we installed a radon suction line in the basement slab. After diagnostics for the system performance, a 5 diameter hole was drilled through the concrete slab to the earth below. There a suction pit was then created. A 4″ schedule 40 PVC suction line was installed in the slab. It was then sealed and was extended to the left exterior of the home. The radon fan was mounted on the rear exterior of the home. The radon vent pipe was then extended above the roof line. Lastly, we installed the manometer gauge (homeowner radon fan monitoring vacuum gauge) on the suction line pipe in the garage. Adding the radon system brought the radon gas levels down to 0.5 pCi/L! It was a pleasure helping Twyla get her Mother’s home happy, healthy, and safe!”
