Mitigation kit - RN1 Fan - Do-It-Yourself - Sub Slab Depressurization
This kit contains all the difficult to find bits to complete your own Do-It-Yourself Active Slab Depressurization radon mitigation system and Fantech's smallest fan.
These systems have demonstrated up to a 99% reduction in indoor radon levels. Just add pipe, pipe cement and some sweat equity, and you can start breathing safe again.
Health Canada strongly recommends hiring a certified C-NRPP radon mitigation professional. Professionals can properly determine airflow and fan sizing requirements, seal radon entry paths, identify potentially deadly back-drafting situations, and properly seal building envelope penetrations.
However - if hiring a pro is not an option, following the DIY manual included in this kit gives you a good chance at constructing a radon mitigation system that is both safe and effective. Be sure to consult with a pro if you have any questions relating to the safety of your system.
This kit is to be used with 4" schedule 40 PVC or ABS pipe.

Note: Fan sizing can only be completed through diagnostic measurements using industry-specific tools that the average homeowner will not have. Unfortunately, returns or exchanges on fans for a different size will not be accepted. If you want to ensure the optimal fan for the job, we recommend hiring a C-NRPP certified professional who performs installations based on the CGSB 149.12-2017 standard.
