Radon in Water

Even though the risk of developing cancer from ingesting radon in water is relatively low, the indoor levels of radon in air can still be elevated due to the presence of radon in water. The general assumption is that for every 10,000 pCi/L of radon in the water, the radon-in-air concentration will increase by approximately 1 pCi/L. It's important to note that this is a very rough estimate; houses that use a lot of water will have an increased contribution from the radon in their water, while those households that are sparse with their water usage will have a diminished contribution. Measuring the radon concentration of a water sample is both simple and accurate with Rad Elec's Radon in Water Test Kit.
