Radon Gas Mitigation Photo Album: Radon Mitigation and Waterproofing Installed in SW Calgary, AB
This 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. They also were experiencing moisture and water seepage in the basement. In search of the best solution to address their concerns, the homeowners contacted the experts at Doug Lacey's Basement Systems.
A System Design Specialist went to the home, did a thorough inspection and provided the homeowners with a FREE, no-obligation quote. From there, our Radon Mitigation Specialist went to the home to install a sub-slab Radon Gas Mitigation System which draws the gas from beneath the basement floor slab and vents 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 which is designed for reliability & high-volume pumping. From there the system will discharge any water entering the sump pump basin to the exterior of the home passing through our patented IceGuard® system, an anti-freeze fitting that is installed outside of your home and ejects water away from the foundation in the event that the sump pump discharge lines freeze or become clogged. The discharge line has been buried below-grade out of plain sight ending off with a Bubbler Pot away from the home installed flush with the grass on the lawn so you can mow right over it.
