Radon is natural but that doesn’t make it safe.
Any home with a well can have radon in its drinking water. Radon is an odorless, tasteless gas that’s released when naturally-occurring uranium in the soil breaks down.
Radon in well water can increase the chances of you or your family members developing cancer. The Maine Bureau of Health recommends that radon in drinking water be no more than 4,000 pCi/L. Studies have shown that nearly one in five Maine wells have radon concentrations this high or higher.
Fontus offers radon testing for drinking water
If you use well water, it’s important to test for the presence of radon.
Fontus can help.
We’ll take a sample of your water and, because radon is a health hazard, send it to a state-certified lab for testing. When we get the results, we’ll make sure you understand the findings completely.
If you have radon in your water, we’ll discuss your options with you, so you’ll be informed and can decide what you want to do. The decision is always yours to make.
Should you choose to install a remediation system, we’ll test your water once more after installation to make sure the system is working optimally and removing radon from your water.
We’re in it for the long-term
At Fontus, we’re passionate about water. We’re always reliable, always no hassle, and always ready to help. We’re not an install and disappear operation. Through testing, installation, and on-going maintenance, we ensure clean, pure water for your home or office.
The Fontus Triple Test Promise
We want all our customers to feel 100% satisfied with our systems, so we’ve created the Fontus Triple Test Promise.
We’ll test your home or business water supply for aesthetic issues, including hardness, iron, pH, etc. using an immediate-response test and make sure you understand all findings.
If needed, we’ll also send a water sample to the Maine State Certified Laboratory to confirm any findings and test for bacteria, viruses, and hazardous chemicals.
After your new system is in place, we’ll test your water supply again to make sure your problem is solved. It’s our way of helping you feel confident that your drinking water is safe and clean.
