Outside installation of a Radon Mitigation

Outdoor Installation:

Applicability:

Any house with a concrete slab floor on the lowest level (basement or first floor) where the primary radon source is below the house (virtually all houses with elevated radon level).

Principal of Operation:

A negative pressure field is created below the building to prevent the entry of radon gas.

System Description:

One or more penetration are made in the concrete floor (slab) and a small pit is created beneath each penetration. If there is no slab, a radon retardant vapor barrier is affixed over rock and dirt prior to creating the penetration(s). PVC vent pipe is connected to the penetration(s) and is typically routed unobtrusively to the suction side of the RadonAway radon mitigation fan. Additionally PVC vent pipe is then connected to the pressure side of the fan and routed up the sidewall of the house to discharge the radon gas safely above the roof. A weatherproof electrical connection is provided for the fan.

Inside installation of a Radon Mitigation

Indoor Installation:

Applicability:

Any house with a concrete slab floor on the lowest level (basement or first floor) where the primary radon source is below the house (virtually all houses with elevated radon level).

Principal of Operation:

A negative pressure field is created below the building to prevent the entry of radon gas.

System Description:

One or more penetrations are made in the concrete floor (slab) and a small pit is created beneath each penetration. If there is no slab, a radon retardant vapor barrier is affixed over rock and dirt prior to creating the penetration(s). PVC vent pipe is connected to the penetration(s) and is typically routed unobtrusively (through closets, plumbing chases or other unexposed areas) to the suction side of the RadonAway radon mitigation fan.

PVC vent pipe is then connected to the pressure side fo the fan and routed through the roof using a standard roof flange and proper sealants. The radon gas is discharged safely above the roof. The PVC vent pipe protrudes slightly above the roof and has the same appearance as a standard plumbing vent pipe.
