Step 2

Preparing the Exhaust Pipe

After a Standard Water Control representative has helped determined the optimal procedure, your radon mitigation system is ready to be installed.

Standard Water control must first drill holes in the wall, soffit and roof to provide access for the exhaust pipe.

The exhaust pipe is installed at least one foot above the roof line to ensure downdrafts won’t force any radon gas into open windows doors or other openings. The other end of the exhaust pipe then connects to the drain tile system with a fan inline. The fan can be wired in two ways by either connecting directly into the house wiring or by installing a cord that can be plugged into an electrical outlet. Protocol requires the ability to disconnect the electrical connection quickly and easily.
