A system is now on the market especially developed in waterproofing and being able to manage the reduction of Radon Gas. It called the ADD system or Radon Aquis Double Defense system. It works by using controlling air whilst using physical barriers. It is a unique system that creates a healthy, dry very safe living space.
The process of managing water & radon
Water is around us everywhere, in the air as moisture and in the ground. When in the ground it is possible for it to penetrate up through into a basement slab and in through the walls so the need for a working waterproof system is a necessity to protect the space inside from becoming damp and wet and spoiling any decoration. This can be achieved by solutions such as a Cavity Drain Membrane often supported by a Sump & Pump System. If you would like to know more about it please click on basement waterproofing.
Not only are basements at risk of attack from dampness they are also at risk of containing ever-increasing amounts of radon levels. When you have a system relying only on a physical barrier there is always risk that a defect can occur that may permit radon to flood and migrate into the rest of the property. To safeguard this the ADD Waterproofing system can provide vital assistance by using air management technics to collect and redirect the gas build up venting it to a different location well away from the interior of the building where it is safe.
This is done using the following:
Positive Pressure Unit
Radon that penetrates basement walls from the earth around it will gather behind the waterproofing membrane and will be vented via the inline fan installed inside an vented pipe that will safely and effectively discharge and remove the gas into the open air some distance from the property and where it is safe to do so.
It can also control humidity levels in the area by the same method so to safeguard any risk of condensation, cleans the breathable air and reducing heating energy costs as drier air needs a lot less energy to heat it up.
Positive pressure unit
The positive pressure unit is installed within the internal basement and its function is to safeguard the air pressure within the living space is just a little higher than the air pressure behind the membrane to ensure that any radon cannot filter through any tiny defects.
