Radon Gas Removal System
What is Radon Gas?
Radon is a radioactive gas found naturally in the environment. It is produced by the decay of uranium found in soil, rock or water. Radon is invisible, odorless and tasteless and emits ionizing radiation. As a gas, radon can move freely through the soil enabling it to escape to the atmosphere or seep into buildings. When radon escapes from the bedrock into the outdoor air, it is diluted to such low concentrations that it poses a negligible threat to health. However, if a building is built over bedrock or soil that contains uranium, radon gas can be released into the building through cracks in foundation walls and floors, or gaps around pipes and cables.
When radon is confined to enclosed or poorly ventilated spaces, it can accumulate to high levels. Radon levels are generally highest in basements and crawl spaces because these areas are nearest to the source and are usually poorly ventilated. In the open air, the amount of radon gas is very small and does not pose a health risk.
All-In-One Radon Removal and Sump Tank
Patented ALL-IN-ONE Sump Pit / Radon Mitigation System. This sump pit is designed to “rough in” for new construction applications, or as a remedial measure for buildings which have a high radon concentration (testing above 200 Bq/m³). This sump tank incorporates a sealed-lid styled system with an access window. Because this system is designed to be dual purpose (a radon collection tank and sump tank), the acrylic window in the lid allows you to inspect your sump pump and water levels.
