Radon in Water Solutions

Treatment of Water to Reduce Radon

Radon gas can be easily removed from drinking water by the process known as aeration. Aeration can achieve up to 99 percent removal of radon gas from water. The process consists of mixing large volumes of clean air with the well water. The moist radon laden air is discharged outside the home. The treated water is re-pressurized(pump) so as to flow through your plumbing.

Water Quality Issues Which Accompany Aeration

Aeration will intensify the staining affect of untreated iron and manganese. If iron/manganese/sediment are meaningfully present, pretreatment for their removal is recommended. If iron and manganese remain untreated, iron bacteria or a film of inorganic precipitates would be expected to form on the inside of the aerator. This condition can loosen in large clumps and may clog pumps or reduce the pump service life. Sediment can have the same effect. Where high carbon dioxide (CO2) is present in the well water, release of the CO2, may raise the pH of the water. In New England, high CO2 in the water is often present and identified by a pH test. This effect is considered a side benefit of aeration as higher pH water is generally less corrosive.
