Activated Sump Hole SuctionAlso known as Sump Hole Suction, a radon suction point is added to the sump pump lid.
Seal Sump Pit
The sump pit serves as one of the biggest culprits of radon gas getting into your home. The sump pit must be sealed, no way around it. Ask about our various lid options, from clear lids to two-piece lids, even tall height lids with a removable door.
Install Suction Point
A hole is cored in the sump lid, a rubber seal is added, and a suction point is created. This suction point is designed to use systems beneath the floor that tie into the sump pump to obtain a “pressure field extension.” Simply put, to vacuum radon gas from the entire footprint of the house.
Install Fan and Exhaust Plumbing
A fan is installed, set to run 24/7/365, to create a vacuum beneath the floor. The plumbing reroutes the radon gas to a safe location where it disperses into the atmosphere. The exhaust piping is anchored to the home. Exhaust is typically run in SCH 40 PVC piping, but is available in gutter downspout upon request. Systems may also be color matched upon request.
Every home is different, we work with the homeowner to find a location that is both aesthetically pleasing as well as functional. Options are available to conceal the system as much as possible.
