Airwell - Radon Mitigation
How the Airwell system works.
A pipe with an aeration section is inserted from top to bottom in the well through the addition of riser pipes. A low voltage compressor delivers air to the active section of the Airwell pipe. This creates a hydrodynamic pressure, causing water from the base of the well to rise through the pipe and be aerated through the active section.
The result: injected air will have stripped previously trapped gasses out of the water in the relatively pressurized conditions at the top of the well.
Air access is restored to the water enabling the ventilation of gases, such as radon and methane, to the atmosphere. The system quickly and reliably removes contaminants.
Why is this important?
Radon has been identified as
a public health concern when
present in drinking water. Water
from wells can have high radon
concentrations. Because radon
is relatively insoluble in water,
water use releases radon into
the indoor air and contributes to
the total indoor-airborne radon
