Sump Pit - Radon Mitigation

Great West Radon came to me via friend's recomendation. I will be passing their name along as well.

Solid install, clean, and quick. Responsive and addressed all of our concerns. 100% recommend.

In our case GWR was able to fit to an existing Sump Pit cap. In case you are seeing that big black cap and balking, I would imagine most installs would have a smaller diameter hole (just wide enough for the tube).

I'd check other review photos for more common scenarios. This sump pit can still remain sealed and used for regular operation, but we have never needed a sump pump.

Great service

My initial radon level was around 300+. For long time I tried to fight it with opening windows and ventilating the house, but no luck. Especially when outside is negative temperature it is very difficult to keep windows open every time. So did some research and asked for radon mitigation service from Great West Radon company. They did very accurate estimation and diagnostics. Installation time took 4 hours. Clean, fast and professional job. Next day radon level dropped to around 7-15 and never go above that level. Great job!

Radon Mitigation

Jordan and the Great West Radon team did an excellent job! From the initial consultation and quote we were provided all the information we would ever need. The pricing and quality of the materials were second to none. The install went perfect and the team was very respectful of our home, covid protocols and left things like they were never here (except for a great mitigation system). Things worked great and our Radon dropped right away from over 300 Bq/m3 to less than 20 Bqm3.

Radon remediation Homestars!

Just a quick review about Great West Radon Ltd. Very professional, extremely diligent, and a phenomenal job well done. We have recommended them to everyone we know. Jordan and his team completed everything exactly as they promised and have followed up a few times to ensure all is still well. If Radon remediation is not completed in your home yet, give them a call. It will save your life.

Radon Mitigation

After finding out we had very elevated levels of Radon in our home we had hired Great West Radon. Not having much previous knowledge of how the process works in regards to Radon mitigation, one of the qualities we noticed right away was Jordan's ability to educate to have us understand what exactly needs to be done. Jordan was extremely professional from day 1 and was very diligent in making sure everything was done the right way. We were extremely impressed in how clean the job was and great follow up to make sure we were satisfied. The company is highly educated and professional as it shows. I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for anything Radon related.

Radon experience made easy

Like most Radon experiences, ours was a bit of a scary surprise. Great West Radon educated us on our situation, priced out a quote quickly and was able to install a mitigation system that’s so well integrated we can hardly notice it. I’m very happy with their service and would certainly use them again!

Radon Mitigation

Jordan was price competitive and did an excellent job on the mitigation. Radon went from 200+ to 30. He was well organized, did a very neat installation and left the worksite clean. I have recommended him to a number of friends and family.

Great West Radon - Awesome Job!

We had no idea we were living with high concentrations of radon in our home and found out about it from a friend who had recently purchased a home in a Calgary NW community. He told me that he was going to move into his new home after the “radon mitigation” was complete. This comment sparked me to ask about what radon is and why he would need to mitigate. He filled me in, and I also asked him who was helping him fix the problem. Great West Radon (GWR) was doing the job and he had nothing but good to say about his experience.

After this conversation I did some further reading on radon and purchased a radon detector (Corentium Home by Airthings, Radon Gas Detector) from Amazon. Once we had the detector in hand we began testing and were shocked with the readings that we got over the next several days. The World Health Organization suggests a safe building would have an annual average residential radon concentration reference level of less than 100 Bq/m3 and for Health Canada their max number is 200 Bq/m3 . Needless to say, when we started seeing our short term number (peaked at 1,710 Bq/m3 ) and a long term average of over 800 Bq/m3 we picked up the phone and called Great West Radon.

Dorothy was the person at GWR who took our call, and she was very informative. She let us know about the effect of weather (pressure changes) on radon readings, amongst other things, and we booked an appointment for a site visit the following week. During that week we saw numbers as high as 2,150 Bq/m3 and our average increased to around 1,300 Bq/m3. Typically, the recommended test period for radon should be about 3 months, but with numbers like these we decided that we needed to act sooner than later.

Jordan was the technician from GWR that came out for the site visit and to quote the radon system. He was great at explaining how radon gets into a home and what they could do to reduce the levels. At no time did we feel that Jordan was pushy or salesy, he simply did a walkthrough of the house while explaining to us the process of how they would help us get our radon levels to an acceptable level. After the visit, we received our quote (that evening) and it was not a hard decision to move forward with GWR. They booked us in for the following week which brings up another good point. GWR has a great online portal for clients and everything you do with them (from scheduling, to invoice, to receipt etc.) is available online and emails are sent for each step of the process.

On the date of installation, Troy and Gary (GWR installers) showed up exactly on time. They were professional, clean, and excellent to work with. Troy went out of his way to explain the installation process along with answering any questions we had. We have an in-floor heating system in our basement with 5 zones and finding a suitable installation spot was no easy task. The guys took their time and didn’t rush the job, they found a great spot and installed the system with great attention to detail. They had a lot of gear to bring in and laid down mats to protect our carpet and kept the install clean and tidy from beginning to end. I’ve worked with a lot of building contractors (plumbers, framers, electricians, roofers etc.) in my lifetime and have to say that these guys were one of the best to work with and that the quality of their work is exceptional.

Once the installation was complete we reset our radon detector (takes several hours) and woke up this morning to a reading of 77 Bq/m3 . Troy had indicated that it could take a couple of days for the levels to drop but given our previous numbers we are absolutely thrilled. I’ll have to update this review in a few months to see where we are at, but I am confident the system will keep our levels down.

I would recommend Great West Radon to anyone concerned about radon or dealing with a problem like ours. Thanks for the great service!
