To facilitate the use of soil depressurization, it is suggested that a permeable layer of material be placed beneath the slab, all major foundation penetrations be sealed, and a passive stack be run from the permeable layer up through the roof like a plumbing vent.

A passive stack is much easier to add while building the house, and is easily power vented later if required.
