Radon Gas Mitigation Photo Album: Sub Slab Depressurization System in Nottingham, MD
After a Radon Charcoal test produced results of 4.3pCi/L, this customer knew they needed mitigation and reached out to Basement Systems USA for help.
After sending our certified radon inspector, Wil Wilson out to assess the basement and decide the best mitigation system to install, it was determined a Sub Slab Depressurization System would work best for this property.
This type of system consist of Radon PVC piping installed through the slab and routed throughout the basement and to the exterior of the home where it will meet up with a Radon Fan. When the fan is turned on, it will create a suction point under the slab and the radon gas will safely be pulled from below the slab to the exterior of the home.
Radon levels started at 4.3pCi/L in this home, after we installed our Mitigation System, we were able to get the levels down to a safe level of 1.7pCi/L
Sub Slab Depressurization System
PVC piping is installed into the slab and sealed off so no gas can escape except through the piping.
Radon Fan here is installed on the exterior of the home and the vent pipe is extended above the roof line.
