Radon Suction Pit

  • If the basement slab has gravel underneath it you can basically place the radon suction pit anywhere you want, be sure not to get to close to the basement wall as you will be to close to foundation and will not be able to dig out enough gravel out of the radon suction pit.
  • I would try to put the pit near a corner as it will take up less space and not be as noticeable, but in a space that can be easily accessed.  

 The radon vents piping or plumbingradon pipes

  •  Placing interior piping through the home; try to run through closets, or if the walls are unfinished place them inside the walls; Cosmetically less noticeable.
  • Placing exterior piping, try to place on backside of the home, it will be less noticeable.
  • Placing exterior piping near an electrical outlet as you will need electricity for the radon fan and the fan needs to be about shoulder high, at some point the radon fan will go bad and need to be replaced.
 Radon Exhaust Fan
  • Placing the radon exhaust fan in the attic you will need access to an electrical outlet to plug in the fan.
  • Needs to be in an area that will be easily accessible to replace the radon exhaust when it goes out.
  • You will also be cutting a hole in the roof, so consider the area for the hole you will be cutting for the radon exhaust fan.

Now that you got your radon mitigation plan laid out you want to start by making the hole in the concrete floor (this will be the hardest part on the diy radon mitigation installation).
