The threats that radon present to human and animal life is fairly well established. That radon emits from ground source is also well established. Did you realize, though, that radon is sourced via well water also? Therefore, if you get nothing else out of this blog post, take with you the fact that your well water should be tested for radon if ANY of amount of your well water is used for human consumption.
Now, on with the rest of the story. Radon derives from Uranium and if your well water is close to a Uranium source, your drinking water could have elevated levels. The way to remediate Radon in water is to correct when it first enters the house.
Radon Systems LLC here in Sutton MA installs diffused bubble aeration units that safely clears radon in water issues.
How Diffused Bubble Aeration Systems Operate:
Water enters the aeration unit from the existing well supply. Then goes through a series of stages where air is injected into the water causing the Radon to separate (desorb). The water is then re-pressurized and supplied to the house using the existing pipework. Finally, the radon that was once in the water is now safely removed from the house using a PVC pipe network.
