Radon Protection Guides

Easi-Sump - Radon Sump

By following four simple steps it is possible to remove radon from the foundations of a building.  

Step 1: Establish An External Position For The Easi-Sump Cap-Link 

Step 2: Install The Easi-Sump Radon Sump At Sub-Floor Level 

Step 3: Seal The Opening Through The External Wall Of The Building 

Step 4: Final Connection to the Easi-Sump Cap-Link 

Advisory Notes

Keep in mind that the Easi-Sump radon sump and Easi-Sump Cap-Link assembly is not intended to deal with the following: 

  • Soil gases other than radon soil gas e.g. volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from underground storage tanks, or the range of gases from landfill sites.
  • Radon activity in a building which is caused by radon emissions from the building’s water supply, or from construction products used in the building’s superstructure.

Radon Resisting Membranes

To ensure a necessary degree of separation in the ground floor so that interior building spaces are not affected by heat losses if a radon soil gas control system is ever activated, a radon, air and moisture protection system should always be installed by competent personnel.

Existing Buildings

Prior to installing an activated radon soil gas control system it must be established that there is sufficient separation between the sub-floor construction and interior spaces and superstructure construction cavities.
Keep in mind that, depending on age, an existing building may or may not have either a radon soil gas or a damp resisting membrane.
