This hole was cored through the foundation to allow the Radon Discharge Line to be installed.
Here is a view of the Waterproofing System fully installed with the concrete poured and in the process of curing.
A wide shot of the Radon and Waterproofing System completely installed. The Radon Mitigation Fan pulls the Radon from underneath the basement floor slab. Any excess water is redirected to the SuperSump® and is pumped outside of the home.
Here is a view of where the Radon will be redirected outside of the home and become diluted with the outside air.
This homeowner in Southwest Calgary, Alberta encountered issues with water leaking in through foundation cracks around the properties basement during heavy rainfall. This homeowner was also worried about the Radon levels within their home. Wanting to eliminate the water/Radon issues they contacted the experts at Doug Lacey's Basement Systems.
A System Design Specialist was able assess the situation and provide them with a FREE, no obligation quote designed specifically to address all of their concerns. Our Production Team was then able to then come to the home to install CleanSpace® vapor barrier along the walls which is a 100% waterproof plastic that's perfect for unfinished basement walls. With a 25 year warranty for wear and tear, it's durable, washable, and has anti-microbial protection called UltraFresh built right in! The wall vapor barrier ties into the patented WaterGuard® drainage system. The WaterGuard® Below-Floor Drain System is designed with a built-in wall flange, which extends up your basement wall by 3/8", capturing any water leaking from the walls will move downward and behind this flange where it is then directed to the SuperSump® sump pump system. A full-featured system, SuperSump® includes the best components available including a top-rated 1/3HP Zoeller® pump is designed for reliability & high-volume pumping. Our Radon Mitigation Specialist had installed the Radon Mitigation Fan right beside the newly installed sump system. Radon mitigation system draws the Radon* gas from under the basement floor slab and outside of the home. This homeowner can now rest easy knowing that their home is being protected by the installed systems.
*Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that has become the second-leading cause of lung cancer, second only to cigarette smoke. Most soils contain uranium that, over time, decays to produce radium and polonium. Eventually, polonium is released with the radon, which creates a high toxicity level in the air and water that it infuses.
