Passive System 2nd Tap Activation Installation

Radon Mitigation Passive System 2nd Tap

Passive System 2nd Tap Activation Installations - A Diagram of the system installation and a brief overview on how the radon gas mitigation system functions to remove radon gas from your home or establishment.

passive system 2nd tap activations are installed in homes or businesses with existing passive systems where the radon level has increased over time or has increased and the passive system can't handle the current radon level. The systems are established by adding a second radon collection point as well as a fan to facilitate pulling the radon gas from the radon collection points.

The system works by creating a negative pressure under the home with the existing radon collection point and the new radon collection point. The radon fan that has been added to the system in the attic must run continuously in order for the system to work correctly to mitigate the radon from the home or building. From the radon collection points under the slab the radon gas is collected and the systems fan will suck the gas from under the home in the radon collection points and route the gas safely through the PVC piping up in through the attic where the gas is removed from the home out of the existing passive systems roof stack.
