What In The Hell Is This?

Each toilet tank was sitting on a cylindrical device that had a hose attached to it, like a small vacuum sweeper hose, that went into the wall and was snaked up to the attic. One toilet on the first floor kept gurgling.

Up in the attic there is a menagerie of fans that are being vented outside. The small white tubing that you see is coming from the toilets. The white tubing is going into it's own fan which is then venting into the the bigger flex duct that is going into what looks like Radon exhaust fans.

There is a Radon removal system install in the home but they tapped into the sump crock for it.

I have to hit the net but wanted to ask here as well.

It's quite simple really,

It's used during an alien invasion to repel really, really queasy aliens. Upon word that the mothership is hovering overhead, each member of the family drinks one gallon of phospho soda and then mans their toilet,...er, firing station. The captain of the home,...er, earthship, activates the system and collection tubes emerge from under the occupants bum's,.....er, weapons breaches and begin sending ammunition to the firing ports which are disguised as common ventilation fans in the attic. The airspace overhead, and thus the surrounding countryside for hundreds of yards, becomes filled with aerosolized fecal matter; and the aliens, super grossed out, beat a quick retreat and go invade someone else's neighborhood.

I'm simply amazed that I have to explain this kind of thing. Don't they teach anything in schools anymore?

ONE TEAM - ONE FIGHT!!!

That is just bazaar if it is a radon mitigation system. Was the house on well water?

Not that I'm a mitigation specialist but if I recall from my training that is not how you get rid of radon in the water. For some reason I thought that it needed to be aerated prior to entering the house and the radon expelled from the tank that the water was aerated in. Maybe this is some fancy new solution but somehow I don't think so...

Beware the homophone Brother Scott. A "bazaar" is a market place; "bizarre" is the one you were thinking of.

  • 2 weeks later...

In a hotel in Milan, Italy the john in the bath was built up on a box that had a wire feeding a motorized "vegamatic" that activated by the flush handle and Roncoed the flushed product on the way to the vertical stack that must have lurked in the wall.

Never seen nuthin like b4 or since.

BTW, it leaked and reeked, but since we were in there at dark and outa there by sunrise it was too much trouble to complain and move, besides I got the feeling every room had 'em.
