A homeowner in Windham, Maine, reached out to Maine Radon & Water Treatment for help with their indoor water quality concerns. We started by conducting thorough water quality testing to figure out the best solution. After evaluating the situation, we decided to install the Water Filter 1.5CF Impression water softener system known for its ability to effectively tackle sulfur and iron issues commonly found in troublesome well water. These units work by using air-injection to oxidize sulfur or iron, transforming them into particles that can be easily filtered out. This method of air filtration is environmentally friendly, as it doesn't involve any harmful chemicals. The end result? Fresh, clean water straight from the tap every time. During the installation, the client was present and left very satisfied with the outcome.

Highest radon levels over 4 pCi/L (picocuries per liter). EPA strongly suggests you install a radon mitigation system.

Zone 2 (Orange)

Radon levels between 2 and 4 pCi/L. EPA recommends you consider installing a radon mitigation system.

What is radon?

Radon is a dangerous gas that is produced when uranium naturally decays in layers of soil. What's worse, radon is odorless, tasteless, and invisible. That means it is virtually undetectable without the help of a professional. Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer for non-smokers in the United States, so it is critical to ensure that your Windham home does not have elevated radon levels. Read on to learn more about radon.

Radon facts:

  • Radon has been found in every state in the U.S.
  • Radon is produced when uranium naturally decays in soil
  • It is the leading cause of lung cancer for non-smokers in the U.S.
  • A radon mitigation system is recommended if levels meet or exceed 4 pCi/L

Job Stories From Windham, ME
Peace of Mind in Windham: Maine Radon & Water Treatment Addresses Condo Concerns

1. Why They Needed a Radon Mitigation System:

A resident in a Windham, Maine condo building suspected elevated radon levels due to ongoing work in their neighbor's basement. An initial test confirmed their concerns, revealing a radon level significantly exceeding the EPA's recommended action level. This invisible gas, naturally occurring in the soil, can seep into basements and pose a health risk with prolonged exposure. Recognizing the potential threat, the resident sought professional help to ensure a safe living environment.

2. Why the Customer Chose Maine Radon & Water Treatment :

  • Experience with Existing Systems: They suspected a pre-existing passive system, and the company might have a reputation for working with such systems.
  • Focus on Quiet Solutions: Their desire for a quiet solution suggests the company offers quiet fan options or prioritizes understanding customer preferences.

3. What's Causing the Problem:

Radon gas naturally occurs in the soil and can enter basements through cracks in the foundation or other openings. In this condo setting with separate basements, the specific cause is undetermined. The possibility exists for radon gas to migrate from the neighbor's unit or enter through the condo's own foundation cracks.

4. How We Fixed the Problem:

The exact solution depends on the presence and functionality of the existing system:

  • System Evaluation (if applicable): A thorough examination would determine if the suspected passive system can be effectively activated with a quiet fan.
  • Quiet Mitigation Options:
    • Passive System Activation (if possible): If the system can be activated, Maine Radon & Water Treatment would prioritize quiet fan models compatible with the existing system.
    • New System Installation (if necessary): If no existing system is present or activation isn't feasible, a new, quiet radon mitigation system would be recommended and installed.
  • Adapting to Existing Conditions: Access points above the drop ceiling would allow for manometer installation to measure system effectiveness after mitigation. Existing piping (if present) would be handled with care due to the building's history of roof leaks.
  • Crack Sealing (if needed): Specified cracks in the foundation might be sealed to further optimize the system's effectiveness and minimize radon levels.

5. What's Unique with This Situation:

The unique aspect lies in a condo setting with separate basements. The neighbor's ongoing work and the resident's proactive approach highlight potential concerns about shared radon issues within the building.

Quiet Activation in Windham: Maine Radon & Water Treatment Prioritizes Peace

1. Why They Needed a Radon Mitigation System:

The homeowner in Windham, Maine, already had a passive radon system installed. However, passive systems rely on natural pressure differences and might not be as effective as systems with fans. This suggests they might have been experiencing elevated radon levels despite the existing system, prompting them to seek activation with a fan for a more robust solution.

2. Why the Customer Chose Maine Radon & Water Treatment:

Their focus on minimizing noise from the fan suggests they valued the company's reputation for offering quiet options or their willingness to collaborate on finding the best solution.

3. What's Causing the Problem:

The problem likely stems from naturally occurring radon gas present in the soil beneath the home. This gas can seep into basements through cracks in the foundation, accumulating in the home and posing a health risk. The existing passive system wasn't enough to effectively address the issue.

4. How We Fixed It:

We addressed the homeowner's need for a quieter, more effective solution by activating their existing passive system with a new fan:

  • System Evaluation: We thoroughly examined the existing system to ensure its suitability for activation with a fan.
  • Collaborative Fan Selection: We worked with the homeowner to choose the quietest possible fan model compatible with the existing system's electrical wiring.
  • Pipe Adjustments (if needed): Any necessary adjustments would be made to the PVC piping to accommodate the new fan's installation.
  • Careful Pipe Handling: Due to a history of roof leaks, we would handle the existing piping with extra care to avoid any potential damage.
  • Manometer Installation: We used an access point above the drop ceiling to install a manometer, a tool crucial for measuring the system's effectiveness after activation.
  • Quiet Fan Installation: A high-quality, quiet radon fan would be installed and seamlessly integrated with the existing electrical wiring.
  • Crack Sealing: To further optimize the system's effectiveness, all specified cracks in the foundation would be meticulously cleaned and sealed, preventing radon gas intrusion and ensuring lower radon levels.

5. What's Unique with This Situation:

The unique aspect lies in activating an existing passive system with a focus on minimizing noise from the fan. This suggests the homeowner might have specific noise sensitivity concerns within their living space.
