Jen S. in Dodge, WI was selling her home and needed a radon mitigation system installed. Her realtor recommended American Waterworks, and we sent our Design Specialist, Kevin Kreofsky, to design a system that was unique to her home.
Our Foreman, Dakota Merchlewitz, started the installation process by drilling a hole in the slab foundation of the home and connected a PVC pipe. The radon gas is drawn upward, and the pipe guides it to the fan. The fan draws and vents radon safely above and away from the home.
Brandon R. in Lewiston, MN had learned about the dangers of radon gas and decided that he needed to get his home tested. The test results showed a high level of radon. So our Design Specialist, Mac Cole, walked Brandon through the radon mitigation installation process and answered his questions. Brandon wanted to act quickly so his family's health would no longer be compromised, so he had the system installed as soon as possible.
Our crew drilled a hole through the floor in the basement to insert a PVC pipe and create a suction point for the radon gas. Then the gas is vented through the pipe and out of the home. A fan is also installed at the top of the PVC pipe where the gas is vented out to ensure that the gas is pushed away from the home. Brandon now has peace of mind knowing that his family is protected from this dangerous gas.
According to the World Health Organization, radon causes 15% of the world's lung cancer cases and kills over 20,000 people each year. If you have not gotten your home tested for radon, click here to set up an appointment!
Tim W. of Cresco, IA had a radon level of 10, so he tested it again, but this time it was at 18. He became nervous and didn't enjoy living somewhere with that type of air quality. He found American Waterworks on his local television, so he called the office line and scheduled a time for our Design Specialist, Michel, to go to his home and figure out where to install our Radon Mitigation System. Michel proposed installing it in the attic. Tim was confident in the proposal and got all of his questions answered, so he went ahead with the project.
Our Foreman, Geno, and his crew started the installation by drilling a hole in the concrete floor in the basement, forming a suction point. From there, our team installed and connected PVC pipes until they got to the attic, where they installed the system. The purpose of our mitigation system is to pull radon from beneath the ground and lead it out of the home. If the mitigation system isn't working, then no radon can escape the home. Tim had a good experience and he was grateful we were able to help him!

Barbara B in Eyota, MN learned about the dangers of radon gas. She had not yet had her home tested and once she learned that radon causes 15% of the world's lung cancer cases and kills over 20,000 people each year, she wanted to get her home tested right away.
She contacted American Waterworks and we sent our Design Specialist, Dustin Loftus, to her home to set up a radon test kit. The results showed that she did have high levels of radon and we recommended that we install a radon mitigation system to ensure that the majority of the radon entering her home would be sucked through a PVC pipe and discharged from her home.
