Testing you home for radon in water content is another way to protect your family

As natural occurring uranium in the soil goes through its process of radioactive decay, radon is created. This radon easily dissolves and accumulates in ground water and aquifers. This is the source of your well water. If you have high levels of radon in the soil, you have the potential of high radon levels in the potable (drinkable) water of your home.

However, radon in water is not just about the water that you drink. It's the use of water in your home that can release radon into the air. Showering/bathing, toilets, hand washing, cooking, and dishwashing all need water. This water will release radon gas into the air of your home.
