Here are some pictures of professionally installed radon mitigation systems. The most common radon mitigation technique is called either soil depressurization, or active subslab depressurization (ASD), or subslab suction (SSD). This is by far the most common type of radon reduction system installed today. Generally, a hole is drilled through the basement slab, a cavity is excavated beneath the slab, and 3" or 4" diameter PVC pipe is run up from the slab, out through the basement wall, where it connects to an exterior mounted exhaust fan. From the fan, an exhaust pipe runs up at least 10 feet above ground level, and 10 feet from any windows.
