The following is a list of tools that I use to install radon gas mitigation system.
One inch hammer drill, drill bit set and chisel for hammer drill, 1/2 inch hammer drill, drill bit set and 3 1/2 inch hole saw and 4 1/2 inch hole saw, shop vacum with a hepa filter, extension cords, trouble light, 1/2 cordless drill, sawzall, ear and eye protection, 5 gallon pail, saber saw and blades, concrete finishing tools, mixing pail for concrete, caulk gun, hammer, screw drivers, saw for cutting PVC pipe, tape measure, mutiladder 22', 2 step ladder, markers, misc. hand tools.
The following is a list of materials that I carry to the job.
Enought 3" and or 4" PVC pipe, 90's long turn, 45's, 45 wye, couplers, clean out plug, plug, hangers metal and plastic, metal clamps, plastic strap, screws and washer to install them, glue for PVC pipe, backer rod in three sizes, concrete mix, silicone caulk, cover for sump pump pit ( plastic or pressure treated plywood ), new submersible sump pump, radon fan sized for the PVC pipe, size of basement, number of suction points, radon gas level, rubber couplers, 6' cord and a water tight connector, mini u-tube. If installing an outside radon gas mitigation system, you will need outside weather proof equipment for electrical.
You may need some other tools and materials not listed.

Be carefull when using power tools. When drilling into concrete and pressure treated plywood, the bit or hole saw may get stuck but the drill still turns. You may get hurt. I know of a person breaking his hand.
The suction pit is very important. We usually take out about 5 gallons of rocks, more if we run into sand. If we hit clay, we dug it as big as we can and use a special fan that is designed for high suction and low volume of air. If we find the drain tile, we will tie into it and use it for suction field extension.
We try not to use the sump pump pit a suction point unless you have a high water level. Sump pumps do need replacing which can damage the PVC pipes and seals. More water condensation will get produced. PVC pipes should have a rubber coupler by the sump pump cover.
Each part of the basement needs it own suction point such as in a tri level house or addition to a house or hidden or extra footings or crawlspace. When this happens, you need different sized PVC pipes and a bigger fan. With two suction points, we use 3' PVC pipe untill they connect to each other then we use 4" PVC pipe.
PVC pipes are sloped back to the suction pits to drain water and condensation. Very important.
