Golden Valley – 03/02/2015

Location: Golden Valley, MN

Cost: $1450

Initial Radon Level: 5.5 pCi/L

Post Mitigation Radon Level: 2.5 pCi/L

This Golden Valley home had sandy clay under the basement which had caused water problems in the past.  The homeowner had a partial drain tile system installed to help deal with the water problem.

We sealed the sump basket cover, installed a sight hole so that you can easily see the water level in the basket or access the sump pump.  We installed a rubber coupler on the radon pipe for easy access if the sump pump ever needs to be replaced.


Working under a staircase can be tough and complicated but this one was easy.  We ran the pipe up the basement wall, over to the garage wall and out into the garage.


The pipe continues in the garage where we installed a u-tube so that it is easy to tell that the radon fan is still running.  We also always install a fire collar anytime the radon mitigation pipe goes through a firewall.


The pipe continues in the garage attic, where we ran the pipe so that the radon vent would be on the back side of the garage roof.  The radon fan was installed in the attic to suck the radon out of the ground and vent it outside.  The electrical connection was installed by a licensed electrician.


A black radon vent pipe was used to match the other plumbing vents.


We were able to complete this project on time and reduce the radon levels. If you need your home tested for radon or a radon mitigation system installed to reduce your radon levels, please don’t wait to protect yourself and your family, contact us now.
