  • Radon Mitigation System Helps Homeowners Breath Easier in Greenville, IL
    Before
    Radon Mitigation System Helps Homeowners Breath Easier in Greenville, IL
    After

    Radon gas is an odorless and invisible radioactive carcinogen that can accumulate in the home. It is the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers in the U.S. Leslie M. knew something was wrong when her husband had trouble breathing downstairs so she tested the radon levels in her Greenville, IL home. The tests came back showing levels of 12.3 pCi/l, much higher than the EPA standard of 4.0 pCi/l for indoor air, so she called Woods Basement Systems. Woods recommended a sub-slab active radon mitigation system.

    The largest source of radon gas is the soil surrounding the foundation. Woods drilled a hole in the slab foundation of the home and connected a PVC pipe. The hole creates a path of least resistance that draws radon gas upward and the pipe guides it to the radon fan. Passive radon mitigation systems don’t always succeed at keeping radon below 4 pCi/l. In an active system like the one shown in the picture, the fan draws and vents radon safely above and away from the home much more effectively without using much power or making much noise.

    Before
    TripleSafe Works With WaterGuard to Keep O' Fallon, MO Basement Dry
    After

    O'Fallon, Missouri homeowners Mike and Shelly were experiencing a wet basement. They had worked with Woods Basement Systems before for cracks in their foundation walls. They knew just who to call and System Design Specialist Jeremy R. developed a plan to keep the basement dry. 

    Foreman Kevin J. and his crew installed the system, which has WaterGuard and a TripleSafe sump pump. The TripleSafe sump pump replaced their current sump pump. It was a better option because the three pumps insure it is always dry. The primary pump works nearly constantly, the secondary pump is set higher in the tank than the primary pump. This allows it to kick on when the pump becomes overwhelmed. Since they are on separate discharge lines and circuits they work as if you had to sump pumps in the area. The third pump is a battery operated UltraSump. It will kick on when the water is way to high or when the power goes out. 

    The pump is airtight so the water cannot evaporate back into the basement air. It does have an opening to allow direct drainage in the case of a pipe breaking or flood. There is also alarms that go off if the water levels gets too high so you can check it before it floods. 

    Mike and Shelly now have a stable and dry basement they can enjoy.
