  • PVC PIPE IS ROUTED FROM THE BASEMENT OR CRAWLSPACE INTO THE ATTACHED GARAGE OR HOUSE ATTIC SPACE. 


  • FIRE COLLARS ARE INSTALLED AT BOTH THE ENTRY AND EXIT POINTS OF THE GARAGE IF FIRE-CODE DRYWALL HAS BEEN PENETRATED. 


  • ALL HORIZONTAL RUNS OF SUCTION PIPE IN THE ATTIC ARE SUPPORTED AT LEAST EVERY 6 FEET WITH UNISTRUT & PIPE CLAMPS AND/OR PVC J-HOOKS


  • RADON FAN PIPE (JUST BELOW THE FAN) IS SECURELY FASTENED TO WOOD FRAMING MEMBERS IN THE ATTIC WITH UNISTRUT AND PIPE CLAMPS TO ELIMINATE VIBRATION THROUGH THE CEILING BELOW AND TO ENSURE THE EXHAUST TERMINATION PIPE EXITS THE ROOF PLUMB.


  • ROOF BOOT IS INSTALLED FOR THE FAN EXHAUST TERMINATION AND SEALED PROFESSIONALLY WITH A GUARANTEE OF NO LEAKS.


                               


                                                                                                                                     
EXTERIOR FAN INSTALLATIONS


  • HOUSING AND BASE-PLATE ARE SECURELY MOUNTED TO THE HOUSE WHICH PROTECTS THE FAN FROM WEATHER ELEMENTS AND PREVENTS TAMPERING WITH THE ELECTRICAL POWER SOURCE.

  • RADON FAN & ELECTRICAL CONNECTION ARE ENCLOSED IN A WHITE, AS OPPOSED TO A LESS EXPENSIVE BLACK,  PAINTABLE WEATHERPROOF HOUSING SECURELY FASTENED TO THE BASEPLATE. THE WHITE COVER CAN BE PAINTED WITH LESS EFFORT THAN A BLACK COVER IF YOU CHOOSE TO MATCH IT TO YOUR DOWNSPOUT EXHAUST COLOR.


  • 3” X 4” ALUMINUM DOWNSPOUTS INSTEAD OF PVC PIPE ARE UTILIZED FOR THE FAN EXHAUST AND MATCH EITHER THE HOUSE SIDING COLOR OR THE EXISTING SOFFIT AND GUTTER  COLOR ON THE HOUSE, WHICH BLENDS WITH THE EXISTING EXTERIOR FINISH AND  DISGUISES THE SYSTEM EXHAUST FOR AESTHETIC PURPOSES.


  • ALL PIPE PENETRATIONS THROUGH THE HOUSE STRUCTURE ARE SEALED WITH CLEAR SILICONE SEALANT.


  • ALL ELECTRICAL PENETRATIONS THROUGH THE HOUSE EXTERIOR ARE MADE WITH CONDUIT AND SEALED WITH CLEAR SILICONE SEALANT.


  • DOWNSPOUTS ARE SUPPORTED VERTICALLY AT LEAST EVERY EIGHT FEET WITH U-SHAPED CLIPS THAT ARE PAINTED TO MATCH THE DOWNSPOUT COLOR AND ARE NOT VISIBLE FROM FRONTAL VIEW.THE DOWNSPOUT IS VERY LIGHT (COMPARED TO SCHEDULE 40 PVC PIPE) WHICH ELIMINATES THE POSSIBILITY OF SIDING BEING PULLED APART OR AWAY FROM THE HOUSE WHEN THE EXHAUST SUPPORT BRACKETS ARE NOT MOUNTED TO WOOD FRAMING.

  • DOWNSPOUTS AND ELBOWS ARE FASTENED TOGETHER WITH RUSTPROOF STAINLESS STEEL SCREWS AND SEALED WITH SILICONE CAULK.


  • PVC 3” X 4” DOWNSPOUT ADAPTER IS UTILIZED FOR THE TRANSITION FROM PVC PIPE TO DOWNSPOUT AT THE TOP OF THE HOUSING AND SEALED WITH CLEAR SILICONE SEALANT.


  • DOWNSPOUT EXHAUSTS ARE ROUTED TO THE HIGHEST GUTTER LINE OF ANY ROOF LINE ON THE HOUSE, TERMINATING AT LEAST ONE FOOT PAST THE  HIGHEST GUTTER LINE OR ITS EQUIVALENT.

                                             SUMP PIT SEALING 

  •  ALL SUMPS WITH SINGLE  DISCHARGE PIPES ARE COVERED WITH ONE-PIECE CLEAR POLY-CARBONATE ¼” THICK LIDS CUSTOM CUT TO FIT EITHER INSIDE THE SUMP BASIN OR ANCHORED AROUND THE PERIMETER OF THE SUMP PIT WITH REMOVABLE CONCRETE SCREWS. AN AIR-TIGHT SUMP SEAL IS MADE THROUGH THE USE OF CLEAR SILICONE CAULK AND/OR  RUBBER GROMMETS. 

  •  ALL SUMPS WITH TWO  OR MORE DISCHARGE PIPES (USUALLY WHEN A BATTERY BACK-UP PUMP IS PRESENT) ARE COVERED WITH TWO-PIECE  CLEAR POLY-CARBONATE 1/4” THICK LIDS SO AS NOT TO COMPROMISE THE INTEGRITY OF THE BACK-UP SYSTEM. CLEAR SILICONE CAULK AND/OR RUBBER GROMMETS ARE UTILIZED FOR THE AIR-TIGHT SEAL.


  • CLEAR POLYCARBONATE SUMP COVER ALLOWS FULL UNOBSTRUCTED VIEW OF THE SUMP PUMP OPERATION WHICH ALLOWS MONITORING OF SUMP PIT WATER LEVEL DURING HEAVY RAINS..


  • SUMP COVER ELECTRICAL RUBBER GROMMETS CAN BE REMOVED EASILY FOR TEMPORARY DRAINAGE PURPOSES (SUCH AS WITH A DEHUMIDIFIER TANK) AND EASILY REINSTALLED..

  • SUMP COVER'S REMOVABLE ELECTRICAL GROMMETS ALLOW QUICK ACCESS TO PUMP FLOAT MECHANISM FOR PUMP OPERATION VERIFICATION PURPOSES WHICH PREVENTS UNNECESSARY DISASSEMBLY OF SUMP LID.
