Radon Water Test CT

Why testing you Connecticut well water for radon may be important?

Radon is a naturally-occurring radioactive gas that is a decay product of radium. It dissolves in ground- and well-water and can be released into the air during water use. It can also enter a home by rising through the earth up through foundations.

High levels of radon in well water may be a serious danger to family health. High levels of radon gas occur naturally in the soil, air and water throughout Connecticut. Radon is the 2nd leading cause of lung cancer.
If you have tested and your well water number is:

10,000 or higher
You need a treatment system

Between 4,000 and 10,000
You many need a treatment system

4,000 or lower
Retest in 3 to 5 years

In Connecticut, if you have tested just your well water it is a good idea to test your air too before making treatment decisions and vice versa.

The major danger from radon in water is when the water is used—for bathing, washing laundry, or even flushing
toilets. The radon escapes from the water into the air which is breathed in by all family members.
