Radon vent in finished basement room
Sometimes limited to where vent can be installed, here it is in a finished basement room. This could be boxed in if desired.
Radon fan on exterior of basement wall
Short vent pipe in house allowed for lower positioned fan on exterior wall.
Improper Radon Fan Installation
Radon fans should not be installed in basements and must be installed vertically. Moisture dripping down vent pipe puddles in bottom of fan housing, sloshes around and shortens the life.
Bad Radon Fan Install
From a home inspection I did. First, it should not have been installed in the basement. Second, they did not use rubber couplings to secure the fan to the vent pipe, instead just sealed joint with silicone caulk which is leaking. This saved the installer about $15. and now requires repair.
