Dig! Don't give up, DIG!
It was a bit of work but it’s finally complete. Working off and on through the summer months I’ve installed our Fantech HP190sl outdoor system. Due to an unsual home layout there was no way for us to install a mitigation system without intruding on a living space on the floor above or placing piping in the middle of a living space in the basement. We opted for the outdoor system and soon found we had other problems as well. Because of our soil make up we’d selected 4” pipe, this made exiting the house exceptionally difficult. The distance between the floor joists and the rim joists on the side we’d selected would not allow a 4” 90 deg elbow or other couplers to fit. The problem we would run into mounting in another location is that we would have to dig about 6ft down in the dirt to the pipe exit on the other side of the house and we could have encountered sewer lines on that side. The solution I came up with was to run the pipe out a window replacing the glass with acrylic. I truly envisioned this looking much more hideous than it does now.
