Here is an overview of some basic things to expect when you have a professional mitigation technician install your system.

Upon completion of the installation, the installer should provide you with a basic understanding of how your system works.

The installed system should include basic features like a system operating indicator.  Typically a dynameter is installed (fig. 1) with a label showing where the fluid level should be.

(fig. 1)

There should be a label on the system with the contact information of the installer (fig.1 and fig. 2). 

(fig 2.)

Sections of piping should have labels indicating the pipes are part of a radon system (fig 3.).  I place a label in every room or space the pipe passes through.

(fig. 3)

The system should have a packet (fig. 4) containing information about the system, I include: original site survey and design notes, Emergency Shut Off  (fig. 5) location, warranty, fan operating guide and dynameter guide.

(fig. 4) 

The fan should be equipped with an emergency shutoff, it must be viewable from the fan and cannot be located more than 8 feet from the fan. (exterior fig 5.)  interior (fig. 6)

 Cracks in the slab and foundation seams should be sealed (fig. 7) and (fig. 8)
