    The documentation I got with my house showed a radon reading above 50.0 before a mitigation system was installed and < 4.0 after it was installed.
    The radon mitigation fan broke and I falsely thought painting / sealing the basement floor (years ago) would stop the radon.
    After plugging in this unit I got a reading (after a few days) around 10.0 and it went up day by day. I replaced the mitigation fan when the reading was around 20.0. This unit then showed the level go down each day (took about 2 weeks to get to safe level).
    Highly recommend this considering you can spend $15.00 a pop on those radon testers you mail in. One I used said I had a safe level.

    Though the interface is a bit clunky the device really works great!
    I would never again bother with those mail-in radon detectors again — save to validate the machine — as our device’s values were shown to be the same. But, unlike those mail-in cans the results are delivered within the two days (the device needs that amount of time to calculate a moving average) instead of a month.
    Thanks to the device I was warned of a 4.5 pico curie level in my basement. After having a radon mitigation system installed, the device showed the level dropping to 1.6.
    A friend of mine, more out of curiosity, asked to borrow the device. He put it in his basement expecting nothing much. A few days later he heard a fire-alarm like siren coming from the basement. He’d forgotten about the detector. When he finally realized it was the radon detector he was shocked to find his basement had a radon level of 13! Now, he too has a radon mitigation system and the levels have dropped to around 1.0.
    We calculated that we reduced our families’ lung cancer mortality rates by multiples — especially for my son whose lungs are more sensitive.

    “…Mortality rate is usually expressed as deaths/100 over a lifetime of exposure (70 years 75% of the time). Does not tell you when the deaths occurred, just an estimate of how many.

    4 pci/liter: 3% average mortality (e.g. 3 out of 100 people expected to die of lung cancer)
    15 pci/liter: 10% average
    20 pci/liter: 15% average mortality
    200 pci/liter: 50% average mortality

    Houses with upwards of 2000 pci/liter have been measured! Even these can be dangerous in the short term (10 years or less). Although these mortality rates seem very high, they are similar with those for things we accept as part of our everyday lives.

    10 pci/liter is roughly equivalent to the risk of smoking 1/2-1 pack of cigarettes/day or having 500 chest x-rays/year.

    Can also express risk as a loss of life expectancy. Tells you, how much something shortens the average (not your) life expectancy. Doesn’t say when any individual will die. 15 pci/liter lowers the average life expectancy by one year (10% mortality). Smoking a pack a day reduces it by 6 years. Being 25 pounds overweight reduces it by 2 years. Automobile accidents reduce it by 2/3 years. Home and work accidents reduce it by about 100 days….”

    Don’t waste money on 4-day test kits!, May 23, 2007
    By

    This review is from: Safety Siren Pro Series HS71512 3 Radon Gas Detector (Tools & Home Improvement)

    One neighbor in my development had a high test off a 4-day test ($30 charge) and it sent the other homeowners out to buy more of the $30 test kits and test their own homes. I was one of those. I spent $30 to find out I was at 13. Then I did a bunch of online research and found out that 4-day tests are very misleading because they can spike for a variety of reasons like if the ground is frozen, or it rains. Both of those scenarios were in play during my test. Some of the neighbors went out and spent money on abatement and a few more tests, so they are at $90 (+ abatement) and I assume they’ll be doing more tests periodically to see if the abatement is still working. I got the Pro 3 and have had it going for a week now. My test kit for $30 said my reading was 13, but after 48 hours with the Pro 3 my first reading was about half that, 7.7. Then it went down to 4.8, and now it went back up to 8.0, all within 7 days. Why not buy the Pro 3 and get a more accurate reading over time?
