Water quality can affect your home, your appliances and your health. Your water pipes bring iron, manganese and other hard elements into your home which can affect the efficiency of appliances. Your health can be affected by natural elements such as radon, uranium and arsenic that may be found in your water.
Maine Radon Solutions can test and treat your water by creating a water treatment solution. Below are the most common issues we treat. If you are experiencing an issue that is not listed below, please contact us.
Uranium treatment is necessary if the concentration of uranium is above the EPA's maximum allowable exposure levels. Uranium in drinking water is tasteless, colorless and odorless. Your water must be tested to see if it contains uranium. These are the practical ways to treat uranium removal in a residential situation:
Ion exchange with anion resin: This is the most common and effective way to remove uranium from your water.
Reverse osmosis:This can be the point-of-use or point-of-entry. Point of entry RO would be the most expensive but removes many other contaminants.
