Drain Tile Depressurization

Depending on the setup of your home or business, you may be able to take advantage of one of the most effective basement radon reduction solutions: drain tile depressurization.

To install this type of radon mitigation system, you’d need two things: a basement and a drainage system that pulls water away from the building.

What is Drain Tile Depressurization for Radon Mitigation?

Drain Tile Depressurization - Fargo ND

Drain tile depressurization functions in the same way as an active sub-slab depressurization system, but with one key difference. In a drain tile depressurization system, the suction point is located at a drain tile. Depending on where that drain tile is, the vent pipe can be attached directly to it or through concrete slab nearby. The suction and piping then removes radon from the home in much the same way it would remove water.

Another type of drain tile depressurization involves using a sump pit as the suction point for the mitigation system. If the basement of a building has a sump pump, it can collect radon gas and move it through the mitigation system and back outside.

This type of radon mitigation system typically works best when drain tiles are looped around the basement.
