My water tested high for radon. Is it safe to drink?

There is currently no link between radon in water and gastrointestinal cancers–more research is needed. The risk of having radon in your water is that it can become aerosolized and increase radon levels in the air you breathe. Water faucets and shower heads all come equipped with aerators which can release radon from water into the air. Typically at a rate of 1 pCi/L in detectable air levels for every 10,000 pCi/L in your water.

The bottom line: test your indoor air radon concentrations first. If traditional mitigation measures aren’t effective, it may be time to test your water.

Call PDS to be connected with licensed mitigators in your area that are experienced in remediating high radon concentrations in water.
