The Radon Mitigation Contractor shall preform, on-site, “Diagnostic Testing” during the installation of the Radon Reduction System to ensure proper communication (PFE) and effectiveness of ASD System. A minimum PFE of -.015” of W.C. must be obtained to guarantee radon results below the EPA’s recommended action level of 4 pCi/L.
