That's the "Active" Radon System.

In Illinois currently and for the past several years, in new construction a passive system is mandated. Testing is not.

Should a buyer or bank want a test and the test results still show high with the passive system it can easily be converted by a licensed installer to an active system.

The best part is once it is active it is not mandated to test again to prove the active system is working or at what percentage the conversion reduced the gas.

I saw a TV show where new construction put half a$$ed installations and when it was ready to use them for real they had put them in electrical panels or placed them where you'd have to rip out the house because it was impossible to bring the pipe outside.

I just did this abomination of a radon in an old house. Core drilled a hole in the basement floor and filled in a bit of peagravel and then went up and out.

no rain protection on the top of the pipe to keep rain and snow from going right into the fan motor???

No. I was wondering the same but thus is how I was told to do it and the fan is rated for outdoors use so I take it that it might have an internal design directing the water safely past the motor. The man who signs my paychecks told me to do it that way so that is how it went in. If I felt it was safety issue or something really totally hacked then I would object. Just because I would personally prefer a different approach does not mean I have good grounds to stand on for objecting. The luxury of having the final say is reserved for the boss not the employee. The end of this year or beginning of next I will have that luxury myself.
