Radon is a radioactive gas that has no taste, color, or odor. But if it ends up in your well water, it can be deadly. Unfortunately, radon concentrations are especially high in Connecticut, and the only way to know for sure if your well water is affected is to get it tested. Once we have completed the test and know exactly where your well water stands, we can tell you how to get radon out of water. Our water radon systems in CT are extremely effective and will keep your family safe from the potentially harmful effects of radon.
Effects of Radon in Your Well Water
Before we get into how to get radon out of water, let’s quickly discuss why it is so imperative to do so. Even though the majority of deaths from radon exposure are from the radon that seeps through the cracks in the foundation of the home, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that as many as 1,800 deaths per year are caused by radon in the water. It can get into your well through the groundwater, and when you wash dishes, do laundry, or shower, the gas gets released into the air you and your family breathe in.
How to Get Radon Out of Water
Clearly, you want to eliminate the radon from your well water efficiently. The best way to do this is with an aeration system for water. While there are several types of water radon systems in CT, we rely on R.E. Prescott bubbler systems. They connect to your water system at the point where it enters your home to make sure all of the water used throughout your home is treated. It works by aerating the water, which causes the radon gas to bubble up and out of your water, which is then vented outside and above the roofline into the atmosphere, only allowing clean water to enter your home.
Benefits of R.E. Prescott Bubbler Systems
R.E. Prescott bubbler systems are the highest rated water radon systems in CT. They come in two different sizes to meet the water demands of your family, they are compact, quiet, and they are 99% effective. Additionally, this aeration system for water has built-in safety features, such as an automatic reminder when it is time for routine maintenance, and an audible alarm when its operations have been compromised. As a bonus, R.E. Prescott bubbler systems can also improve the water pressure in your home.
