Radon Ready Vent

Radon is a radioactive gas that is colourless, odourless and tasteless. It is formed by the breakdown of uranium, a natural radioactive material found in soil, rock and groundwater. RADON READY VENT will keep you safe in your home.

Install RADON READY VENT at the time of construction to provide venting of Radon gas if detected after the house is occupied.

RADON READY VENT should be installed in a central location that provides easy access for venting to outside. RADON READY VENT System used in conjunction with the "Leak-Bye Drainage System" provides a path for air flow down the face of the foundation wall under floor slab to the RADON READY VENT. It is then exhausted to the outside providing complete moisture and Radon gas control.

Building where Radon gas may be
present in the soil.

Install a RADON READY VENT so gas venting can be easily connected in the future if Radon gas is detected in your basement. This venting removes contaminated air from below the basement floor slab as well as off the face of the foundation wall. (If used in conjunction with the Leak-Bye Interior Drainage System.) This venting also removes moisture and bad air smells from a basement, making basement living much more enjoyable.

Installation

RADON READY VENT KIT comes with all pieces required for easy installation, and is labeled for positive identification. Vent pipe to be installed in drainage stone below floor slab in central location. Basement over 2000 sq. ft. may require 2 RADON READY VENT KITS. Future venting to the outside should be considered when placing RADON READY VENT, whether up though the attic for passive vent, or through the rim joists for power vent.
