Sump Test Point
This is the typical two-piece sump cover that is a standard with Radon Systems. Although this cover is more expensive, it has a visual window which is required by Ohio Radon Mitigation Standard effective January 1, 2013. In addition, a pipe with a cap is installed, which allows for periodic testing of the sump pump by manually tripping the float or adding water to the sump basin to test the sump operation. Radon Systems is the only mitigation contractor currently using this sump closure system and is a benefit to the homeowner. The cover is sealed with clear silicone caulk and allows for easy removal and resealing of the cover by the homeowner or plumber. Should it be necessary to service or replace the sump pump, it can be easily removed by either the homeowner or a plumber without the risk of voiding the radon system warranty. Simply reseal the cover with a silicone sealant ( any color), and the pressure should return to where it was before the cover was removed. Water pulsating in the sump crock means that the sump pump is not working. Maybe the sump pump has burned out, or the power supply has been interrupted, not allowing the sump pump to function. Upon completion of our radon mitigation system, our technicians thoroughly check the sump pump for operation, and the sump is plugged in. Our completion checklist requires a homeowner’s signature demonstrating the sump is operating correctly and plugged into the outlet.
If there is currently a pedestal sump pump in the sump pit or a water back- up system, it might be necessary to use a hi-rise cover. A rubber coupling is installed between the radon vent pipe and sump cover to facilitate easy removal of the radon vent pipe.
The U-tube manometer is an indicator of the static pressure in the radon vent pipe only. Although some unknowing people may say that it is also measuring radon, there is no correlation between the static pressure and the radon level. Home inspectors routinely say, ” there is no enough pressure on the U-tube monometer so call the installer for service,” unless that Home Inspector is also a licensed Radon Specialist and familiar with the radon mitigation system design he is unqualified to make this statement. All systems have different indicated pressure, and it may not be possible to increase the static pressure if the radon mitigation system is moving extreme amounts of air. Excessive air could be caused by the size or number of crawl spaces, air leaks that cannot be sealed, long pipe runs with fittings, drain tile draining to daylight or down spouting connected to drain tile, the clear tube from the U-tube manometer going into the radon vent pipe has been crimped, bent or removed. Always do a radon test regardless of the pressure indicated.
The system on/off switch is located beside the fan in an exterior system. The radon fan should be running at all times, and turning it off will affect the fan warrant. The switch is for servicing the radon fan and mitigation system. The switch can be accidentally turned off. Many realtors or homeowners turn off the radon fan during an open house to eliminate noise associated with the radon fan. Many times, the fan is not turned back on. This practice is discouraged and will indicate no pressure on the U-tube manometer. In addition to the radon fan switch, the circuit breaker in the electric panel could have been tripped by turning off the radon fan. Since the amperage in a radon fan is so low, normally, a dedicated circuit is not required unless the radon fan If the rated electricity requirements of a radon mitigation system exceed 50% of the circuit capacity to which it will be connected, or if the total connected load on the circuit (including the radon fan) exceeds 80% of the circuit’s rated capacity, a separate, dedicated circuit shall be installed to power the radon fan. Radon Systems is not a licensed electrician. Therefore all radon mitigation systems installed by Radon Systems are wired by a State Licensed Electrician to code.
Green Check Valve
If water is noticed on the top of the radon sump cover, it could possibly be coming from the check valve. Many check valves already leak and drip into the sump crock. Servicing the check valve is not a part of the radon mitigation scope of work. Therefore, it is not the responsibility of Radon Systems to check, service, or replace the check valve due to liability concerns. If a check valve is leaking, Radon Systems can provide a new check valve for an additional cost agreed to by the homeowner before installation.
The radon fan is a mechanical device that is designed to operate continuously. Like most mechanical things, it is going to make some noise. The radon fans are very quiet; however, the air moving through the radon system is very turbulent. Therefore, it is normal to hear high-velocity air noise moving through the radon vent pipe. Also, depending on the amount of air moved and the fan model, the fan could vibrate against the siding or other structural components of the building and transfer to the interior. To stop the vibration, it is common to place a rubber backer rod between the radon vent pipe and the house, providing a cushion from the noise. If you should hear a grinding noise in the radon fan, that means the bearings within the fan are drying up. Although the fan is noisy, it will still operate normally. The grinding noise will get progressively louder until it becomes necessary to replace the radon fan. All radon fans from all fan manufacturers come with a five-year guarantee from the installation date. Typically a radon fan will last from 6 to 10 years.
This is not a normal condition. When outside temperatures fall well below freezing, condensation can become so extreme that water can drip from a loose fitting or the rubber coupling that connects the radon fan to the radon vent pipe. The movement of warmer air through the radon vent pipe should keep this from happening.

I used Radon Systems over 20 years ago in another house and even still today they provide great service for a radon mitigation system.
Technician arrived on time, kept the area clean, performed the work quickly. No concerns.
Goff did an excellent job of installing our new mitigation system. He thoroughly explained the installation procedure and how the system works.
Great service at a reasonable price. I would highly recommend them and would use their service again if required.
Best price out of three quotes I received prior to hiring Radon Systems. Install was very professional and I was completely oriented to the system.
FANTASTIC CUSTOMER SERVICE, INSTALLER WAS FANTASTIC.
IF YOU NEED A RADON MITIGATION COMPANY, LOOK NO FURTHER!!
LUCAS IS GREAT, AS WELL AS DONNA. AND ESPECIALLY MY INSTALLER GOUGH!!
Awesome service, explained everything to me and made sure I understood everything before leaving.
Have always been prompt with contacts and repair work on old home.
Very professional company! I'm very pleased with the service. They are honest, responsible and trustworthy. Thank you
Received estimants from 3 firms and all were relatively equal but we were under contract to sell this property and need the work done asap and they had availability. They not only did the job resonably but also professionally and quickly.
They were fast and very professional.
They are very fast and does a very good job. I'm very satisfied with it.
He did an awesome work.
I was very pleased with the work. The gentleman who came was very thorough, clean up after himself and took care of everything. He did not leave any mess, very nice guy, very talkative, very personable and he gave me a fair deal. I definitely recommend him.
From the testing to the office staff it went smoothly. The installer was competent and everything was coordinated properly.
Perry did a thorough job, quickly and efficiently installing our system. Three days later Brian picked up the measurement device and answered all of my questions. Within three days of installation the radon level went from an average 12.6 ppm, to 2.4ppm. A very efficient thorough system. Well done Radon Systems, we’ll worth the money!!Richard Wunderlin
MIKE AND LUCAS CAME TO MY HOME AND GAVE ME A PROFESSIONAL EXPLANATION OF MY PROBLEM AND HOW TO MITIGATE IT. THEY WERE VERY THOROUGH AND KNOWLEDGEABLE. THEY GAVE ME OPTIONS TO TAKE CARE OF MY PROBLEM. PERRY SHOWED UP ON TIME AND WENT RIGHT TO WORK. THERE WERE SOME OBSTACLES TO GET BY BUT HE HAD NO PROBLEM SOLVING THEM. HE WAS DONE QUICKER THAN I THOUGHT AND EVERYTHING IS RUNNING PERFECTLY. RADON SYSTEMS IS A QUALITY COMPANY AND YOU CAN'T GO WRONG WITH THEM. SATISFIED CUSTOMER!!!!
The testing process was easy and fast and Brian was knowledgeable and friendly. Will recommend Radon Systems to my neighbors and friends.
Perry was great! He was professional, personable and informative. Very satisfied with our service.
Perry was fantastic to work with, we had a little trouble with the fan working when initially installed but it was fixed promptly and professionally. Thanks guys!
Everyone was friendly and the system did the job. Only complaint is that I can hear the fan on the system running in all the rooms on that side of the house, but there's probably not much they could have done about that anyway!
Prompt, courteous service. Thanks!!
Radon systems is THE place for expertise and knowledge in this area. Our technician Ron did a superb job on our install, thorough and effective! I highly recommend them without hesitation.
Perry did both my quote and installation. Very knowledgeable and explained everything both times he was out. Very efficient install and everything works and looks great.
Received an estimate the day I called and had the radon mitigation completed the following days.
The work was completely in a timely and professional manner. Definitely recommend!
Excellent, professional service! Donna was very pleasant and courteous in scheduling my appointments. Brian was professional and answered all my questions about the testing and the results. Gough was super great with the installation of my mitigation system. He explained everything about the system, installation, and location and did an outstanding job. It’s exactly as I expected it would be and works great! I highly recommend this company.
I found all of the staff at Radon Systems, Ron, Perry, Brian, Lucas, and Donna, to be polite, friendly, and professional. They did a very nice job on my install. They worked with me to incorporate some of my requirements. They also keep me informed of the progress from estimate to final test and explained to me the results. I clearly would recommend them to anyone and they have done several mitigations in the neighborhood with similar results.
I am extremely impressed with the professionalism of Radon Systems and couldn't be happier with the radon system installed by Gough. He was timely, answered all of our questions and even called my attention to an unrelated issue that he discovered while doing the install. I have an Airthings Wave that I use to measure the air quality in my home and since the system was installed my radon levels are consistently below 1 (typically about a .5) and anything below 4 is considered safe. Thanks for helping me to protect my family!
Gough is the real deal! It's incredibly rare these days to have a professional that takes pride in their work and goes the extra mile. Gough is just that! He made sure to thoroughly explain the process during setup, asked for my input during location selection, and let me know how the system operates after installation. He went above and beyond during all phases of this installation. Radon Systems, you are incredibly fortunate to have such a great employee.
Efficient and reliable
Do yourself a favor and purchase a "Corentium Home Radon Detector by Airthings 223 Portable" or similar device. If the cost is too much I also understand, it is nice to know the exact numbers. The manometer is great to know if you have suction but is it really working. In my experience in a single house (I am not a Radon pro or a novice) my numbers with my fan not running ranged from 3 to 20 and over two months seemed to change based on weather or maybe how often I ran the A/C. Causation was impossible to figure out.I hate giving 4 stars, but I had to provide a the Phillips drill bit and the person forgot their battery (I emailed them and got it back to him) and we wasted time on an electrical issue that did not exist. I blame myself as I am usually ultra prepared to avoid any of these problems.We ended up with a ~105 watt fan and the levels are awesome 0.19 to 0.38 down from 3-20. I have to wonder if a 60 watt fan work just as well...I don't know. Most people like don't care so I cannot complain too much. I also might swap it out myself. I did appreciate being told the mistake I made in swapping the fan last time. A mistake I will not make again. I feel a bit stupid but I learned something.
I submitted a web form to set up an in-home test, and Donna from the office emailed me to set everything up. Donna was timely and made the process simple. We worked with Brian to test the radon levels in our new home. He was prompt, friendly, informative and made sure conducting the test was easy. I especially appreciated being able to review the preliminary test results with him when he came to pick up the kit. He offered advice for how to make sure our current mitigation was working properly and what next steps would be if it needed a replacement. I would work with Radon Systems again.
Our radon system (installed over 20 yrs ago by Radon Systems) was still working but in need of some work. Their technician inspected, resealed the sump cover, replaced the 23 yr old fan, and replaced the outside stack that had become cracked. The new fan was significantly louder than the old one, and annoyingly so inside. They returned promptly and replaced with a new, whisper quiet fan. In all, excellent service which has been the hallmark since we engaged Radon Systems in 1998.
Awesome company to work with. From start to finish. Quality work and a pleasure to have in our home. Would recommend to anyone wanting to have a Radon mitigation system installed. Thanks Lucas and team.
Excellent work. Friendly, explained everything being done and what was done afterwards. I highly recommend.
Got our removal system installed with Radon Systems. Bryan is very professional and easy to work with. Highly recommend!
Love this company! They have installed 2 systems on separate properties for us. Both jobs well done and we notice a difference right away. Very professional and I highly recommend!
Had Bryan come out and give me an estimate. He was very professional and nice. I decided to go with him and he was very efficient and extremely knowledgeable in his work. Definitely recommend him.
Overall, a great experience with Radon Systems. Brian was great to work with and very helpful in answering all my questions.
Very professional in the installation. Have used them in the past at another house for repairs and they did a good job. Recommend them to anyone.
Fantastic. Great experience, professional, courteous, thorough, and priced right!!Highly recommend!!
We had a great experience with Radon systems. It was easy to schedule and get a hold of them. Goff the technician was extremely knowledgeable and walked us through all the options and explained how everything would work. He answered all of our questions and was very professional. Thank you for making us feel comfortable. We are happy with our new system.
Radon systems was great to work with. They priced competitively and were able to schedule the work quickly. Brian specific my was super friendly and took the time to explain the whole system to me Soni understood exactly what was happening and what I needed to watch out for. Thanks again for the great work guys.
Very nice company and know what they are doing thank you.
Did a fantastic job. Friendly, professional, and took the time to explain what was going to be done before hand and what was done after completion.
Bryan installed a radon mitigation system at my house. He was very knowledgeable and friendly, and did a great job at a reasonable price! I would definitely recommend Radon Systems to anyone looking to reduce the radon level in their home.
Brian was very helpful, did a wonderful job and was very good explaining the mitigation system he installed. I would highly rexommend him!!
Brought our Rador system to 3.1
Very professional and easy to work with
Bryan was on time and did a professional and being a pipe fitter myself I was impressed
Bryan from Radon Systems was great to work with. Through no fault of his own, we ran into some crawlspace issues and he was able to adapt and install a quality system!
Bryan literally saved my life and the health of my family. His expertise pointed out the faults of a previously installed radon system and how it was improperly vented. When you value loved ones and want things done the right way, Bryan and Radon Systems are the ones to trust.
William Moses (William)
Bryan showed up on time and did a great job installing our new system. He was very friendly, courteous, and able to easily answer all of the questions I had. Great overall experience - would recommend these guys to friends/family.
Brian did an excellent job, and fully explained every aspect of the radon system. He went the extra mile to ensure the outlet pipe was placed in the best possible location. He was very professional. Highly recommended.
Melissa Kemp Barnhart
I am very happy with the service that was provided by Radon Systems. They were patient in explaining radon, the procedure to mitigate, future follow up and cost.Ron installed the radon mitigation; he was able to complete the installation in one day.I recommend them!
Radon Systems did an amazing job. Goff was super thorough and very proud of his work. I highly recommend Radon Systems
If you need help with Radon this is the company you need. We had a reading of 68. We were told by the first company we contacted there was nothing they could do because there was no gravel under our basement floor.. Their comment was...some people don't care about radon. We reached out to Radon Systems. Bryan was the technician who came to our home. He was very straight forward indicating he didn't know how low he could get the number. We found additional penetrations, emptying out the dirt and making larger and deep holes removing about a 5 gallon of dirt and rock began to lower the number. He was able to get the reading to 17. Lucas the owner suggested adding a second system, after adding the second system the reading came down to 10.we set to work filling cracks and sealing the floor and walls. In the long run we were able to get the radon mitigated. Radon Systems did not make false claims. They work hard and with you to get the job done. I would recommend them to anyone who has radon problems who needs someone who understands radon mitigation systems. They are great!
I recently had a radon mitigation system installed in my home in Upper Arlington, Ohio. I called Radon Systems on the advice of a friend who had a system installed in her home by Radon Systems and was happy with her experience. Radon Systems provided a quotation quickly and within a week Gough, the installer arrived on time. I had some ideas where I wanted the system components located, primarily for aesthetic reasons. Gough listened and provided technical information as well as suggestions that would help give me the aesthetic I desired, while creating a highly effective system. He is a very experienced installer and together we agreed on the component locations of the system both inside and outside of the home. Once he got to work, it was obvious that he took a great deal of personal pride in workmanship, keeping me informed each step of the way. With two inaccessible crawl spaces, it wasn't an easy job. In the end, the system was solid, and looked great. Following the installation, Gough took the time to walk me through everything he did, explaining everything I needed to know about operation, maintenance and warranties. My experience definitely deserves a five star review.
We hired Radon Systems to do an install at our new home. Gough did a great job and worked hard to get it done in a day. Getting the installation scheduled was quick and easy too. Highly recommend!
Radon Systems did a very professional job on my install. I was up against a short timeline dictated by my home buyers. The team at RadonSystems responded with a schedule that made it possible. Their installer, Gauff, was meticulous in his work. He was very neat and clean in his work. Due to a couple of issues related to my house, he could not get the install done in one day and returned on the day after Thanksgiving on his day off to complete the install so I could get the post remediation test done on time. Great, professional service.
I had a great experience with Radon Systems. The quote was provided quickly, scheduling was easy, and the price was fair. The technician, Gough, was knowledgeable and friendly.
We are extremely pleased with the Radon Systems staff and final product. The owner, Lucas Brenneman, and his team were dependable, efficient, and did an excellent job installing the new radon system into our home. Initially, our radon levels read at 12.8 and after our radon system was installed by this company our radon levels went down to between a .2-.4. They got the job done and did it extremely well! We highly recommend this company.
We purchased a new Condo in Westerville. Radon Systems did an install for us. They were neat and very professional. I would highly recommend Radon Systems.
From the person answering the phones to the installer, this was an easy and excellent experience.
They were excellent. Very thorough in describing the mitigation process. Scheduled very quickly. They got our radon count from 8 to 0.7! Can't recommend highly enough!
Radon Systems is a great outfit. From the front office personnel to the technician Brian, who was knowledgeable, professional, and very efficient. He explained things thoroughly and was helpful in deciding where to locate the unit to be the least distracting. Thanks
Professional, knowledgeable and excellent installation. Explained the process, great value and friendly service.
I was referred to this company among a few others by my home inspector. They came out and explained everything involved with the process and even managed to make the installation with basically no impact to my house. The rep did the entire installation in the enclosure the sump pump was located in and all in less than a few hours. I'm satisfied with the results and the one instance where I needed to contact them was resolved within a day.
Very timely and knowledgeable.Did a great job!
I had a Radon problem in my house with levels well above 14. From the start the entire team at Radon Systems was highly responsive, knowledgeable, and professional. My technician who installed my system was truly a craftsman! I believe his name is Goff, forgive me if I got the spelling wrong but he installed the system by himself and when he was finished it look like something that would take a 2 man crew all day to do. He paid so much attention to every little detail and made sure the system was as unobtrusive and seemless as possible. Goff is exceptional and in a class all by himself! Also, thank you Donna, Lucas, and Brian I will recommend your company to anyone that needs to get their Radon levels under control. When it was all said and done you got my levels to a 0.7 which is outstanding and well below the EPA's threshold for concern.
Very professional. Brian came in on time and finished the job quickly and efficiently while explaining all of my questions to me thoroughly. He even asked me where I wanted everything
Excellent workmanship, quality materials at an affordable price! My request for mitigation was quoted promptly and and the installation completed on schedule. Gough was very personable and professional as he managed the project. I would definitely recommend Radon systems!
We had the BEST experience with Radon Systems. From my first phone call with Lucas for information and a quote, to the pre-installation call from Brian to answer questions my husband had, through the installation and review /explanation onsite with Brian - we couldn’t have asked for better customer service! Everyone was polite, punctual, knowledgeable and professional. Highly recommend Radon Systems!
Excellent service. Installation went smoothly and was done professionally. Installers went above and beyond my expectations. Complemented my crawl space water leak management.
Very nice and courteous install - I really appreciated the attention to doing the job right and not just taking the quickest option. Good at explaining the process, too. It was hard to get on the schedule, but worth the wait.
Worked with me to find the best location for the system, explained the project in detail and checked with me at several points during the install to ensure things were going as expected. Treated my home as if it were his home - exceptionally considerate and personable. Far exceeded expectations!
Great job. Personalized the location of the pipe behind a bush in our backyard out of sight. Would recommend.
Bryan was great! He was very knowledgable, great at explaining the process and answering all of my questions. He went above and beyond with his workmanship and service. Radon Systems delivered exactly what was quoted and exceeded my expectations in their responsiveness and competence. I would recommend them to anyone requiring a Radon System.
Radon Systems did a quality job and they were very thorough. The installer took the time to explain to us the process as well as taking our input into consideration. We are very confident in our system and it’s performance. We would recommend them to anyone. Lucas and Bryan were great!
Friendly, family owned business. Very knowledgeable and I received a quote quickly. Installets were punctual and professional, the install was completed in a timely manner. Would recommend Radon Systems
Family owned and locally operated. They are the oldest radon company in Ohio. Competitive pricing! Quality service!
Very easy to work with, very flexible, they had to come back again (after 10-15 days) as my crawl space was not empty. very punctual.
Professional, Informative Service. Lucas was a pleasure to work, highly recommend Radon Systems!
Radon Systems is a great company to work with. Very professional and wonderful customer service. Lucas and Donna were very informative throughout the process, and quickly responded to all of my questions. Gough was our installer. He was very knowledgeable in his field, and demonstrated great workmanship during the installation. We could not be happier with the final product. Results after the installation exceeded our expectations, and radon levels dropped well below 1.0 pCi/L’s.. Great job Radon Systems !!
Radon Systems was great! They were able to provide me a quote for a radon mitigation system without even entering my home, and then they supplied and installed the system exactly as they quoted (which was the same price as two other radon companies that bid). There was a small issue with how the fan was wired into our home, but Radon Systems sent someone out right away to fix it free of charge! Gough was our installer and he was extremely nice, fun, and careful with his work. Overall, I would recommend Radon Systems for radon mitigation.
Brian did a great job. He gave a detailed explanation of what he was going to do, answered all my questions and gave me more information once the job was completed.
Excellent experience, professional installation and complete confidence in this company.
Brian was great. He arrived on time, he was sure to approve everything with me before doing it, he went over everything afterward, and he was friendly and professional. I used radon systems for my last house 8 years ago. Nice to see that they’re still as good as ever. Highly recommend.
Brian explained everything he was going to be doing prior to the installation and then went over everything thoroughly after the mitigation system was completed. I would definitely use this company again and will recommend to others.
Dana M Power
The technician was excellent. He was informative, professional and efficient. Thanks!
My new radon mitigation system was installed today. From the proposal to finishing of the job, everything went really smoothly. Brian was very professional, organized, and efficient. He described everything about what was installed, how the system works, and what to do if there would ever be issues. I am waiting for test results but in the meantime, all looks really good. I would definitely recommend Radon Systems for this type of work.
They were very pleasant to deal with, highly recomend!
Great company to work with. Very responsive and professional. Brian called before the appointment and did the work very efficiently and professionally. This is the second house I’ve had them do work on. Very satisfied.
Outstanding work and great communication throughout the process.Thank you both, Brad & Nick!
Excellent company! Fast and courteous. Bryan was respectful of my property and very easy with whom to work. I plan to use their services when we move into our next house.
Brian and Donna were really friendly, responsive and helpful through the estimate and installation of our mitigation system. Brian was thorough, efficient and a really nice guy. The pricing was fair and guaranteed to meet the test standard. We would highly recommend Radon Systems.
Brian and the gentleman who was assisting him were extremely professional, thorough and kind to my boys. Brian was a great communicator and they did a great job downstairs.
Bryan was a good guy--came on time, did the work efficiently, and clearly and thoroughly explained what he was doing and why. Happy with the estimate process, questions I had along the way before choosing Radon Systems, and the final product. (though still prior to measurement of the post-mitigation radon). Would reco Radon Systems.
Brian took care of us. Very personable and fast. Everything's great.
Great customer service
The technicians were very informative and knowledgeable. I highly recommend them for their thoroughness and professionalism.
Family owned, great quality service!
Amazing, Professional Service!!!
Efficient & well done service.
I highly recommend Radon Systems. They were professional, timely, affordable, and the work quality earns 5 Stars. I've already started referring them to friends and family.
Received quotes from three companies to install a radon mitigation system in my house. Radon Systems was a pretty clear winner in terms of quality, honesty, guarantee, fair price and more. Installation was smooth and thorough. Installers were very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. Most importantly, my radon levels have dropped from 8.6 to a mere 0.9. Who knows, maybe I’ll live an extra couple of years.
