Radon Aeration Systems
Aeration units remove gases from water. The most common gases in water are; radon, hydrogen sulfide (rotten egg odor) and carbon dioxide (acid water). Aeration is accomplished via air pumps, well line venturi-mirconizer, or bubbling(aerating) the water in an atmospheric chamber. We offer all of the methods listed, but for the best results, we recommend the diffused bubble aeration process. The image to the right is an aeration system that acts as an acid neutralizer as well. Our technicians go over all the benefits, explain how the system works as well as answer any questions you have.
Radon in Your Well Water
In addition to the risk of Radon in the air you breathe, Radon can be present in your home’s water. If your home’s water source is well water, we recommend having your water tested. Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers and heightens the risk for existing smokers.
Because Radon exists in the soil and rocks, most people in Connecticut are aware of the dangers that lurk in basements. Local homes get tested regularly for Radon gas, but the threat of Radon in your water is often overlooked. Showering, drinking water, doing the dishes, running the dishwasher are everyday home activities that can temporarily elevate radon levels.
Why Choose the Airraider over the Bubble Up Aeration Unit
As you can see it is very difficult to remove the bubble container, and even a professional takes the time do so, it is still almost impossible to clean. As you can see in the picture on the left, the container gets fouled with mineral build up over the course of time. This build up can impart quality on the water, hold on to bacteria and reduce the effectiveness of radon removal.
As you can see here, all of the components are accessible as you soon as you remove the lid to the Airaider. This makes it easy to clean the chamber and other components.
Test for Radon in Well Water
Contact our offices to talk with a water quality professionals about having your water tested. We will then present the results and a suggested course of action, if necessary. We have installed Radon Aeration systems throughout the area. After installation, we will come back out to test the water and ensure that the unit is functioning properly.
If you are in the market to purchase, sell, or broker a home or office sale, water quality can often be a stumbling block for the transaction.
