Radon Gas Mitigation Photo Album: Radon Mitigation Tied in with Sump Pump in SW Calgary, AB
A homeowner in Calgary, Alberta contacted us concerned about high levels of Radon Gas found in the home. 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. In search of the best solution to address the radon concern, the homeowner contacted Doug Lacey's Basement Systems.
A System Design Specialist was able to visit the homeowner, and provide them with a FREE, no obligation quote designed specific to address all of their concerns. From there our Radon Mitigation Specialist was able to install a sub-slab Radon Gas Mitigation System which draws the gas from beneath the basement floor slab and vent it outside of the home. A SuperSump® sump pump system was also installed with the Radon Gas Mitigation 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.
The Radon Gas discharge line has been installed into a hole that was made by the Foreman in the basement wall which will discharge the gas to the exterior of the home
The fan itself is narrow and quiet enough that a closet could be built around it and you would not even know it was there
Sump Pump and Mitigation
There was an existing sump pump in the home so our crew just added our sump basin and lid to make it air tight!
