Hi all,

I've had my eye on this radon detector for a while, but it almost never drops in price from $199. It is well reviewed on Amazon and the pro forums.

Right now it is $139,95 on Amazon. CCC has this as the lowest price ever!

This thing looks great. Radon can change over a period of hours or days so it is nice to have something you can use to take long term measurements. Radon can be highest when it rains a lot or snow is on the ground - the moisture can saturated the ground and block radon from moving up through the ground so it can end up coming thru the cracks in your basement. Definitely get your basement radon checked and mitigated if you plan on spending hours in your basement or use it for a bedroom. Radon is odorless and colorless so you won't be able to tell it is there without a measurement device. Mitigation only costs ~$600 installed so check radon levels and fix it to possibly save someone from getting lung cancer!!

My basement was reading just under 15, My neighbors was over 40. After I installed my system, my numbers range from 1.0 to 0.4. (My neighbors dropped to the mid 20's) I did the install on my own, using 4 inch ABS and a radon fan from Amazon. (I also put in the suction detector, that I also purchased from amazon.) The install took about 4 hours, because I was bumbling my way through it. Total cost about 200$ worth of ABS, a 110$ fan, 5$ switch and box, 10$ suction detector, 20$ for quick disconnects (to attach the fan to the ABS). A little under 350$, all my bids were "1500$".

Hey guys if your radon raring is too high to not hesitate to consult with professional

I did it and radon rating went down from 6 to almost nothing

Cost me thousand bucks but well worth every single penny if you know how harmful radon gas is

Same thing, had my eye on this for months, purchased it just two weeks ago to see it finally drop in price today. Already initiated a return and repurchase - $60 saved. It's a great device.

Well crap. Had this in my cart for months waiting for a price drop, and finally caved and bought it October 24 with a 20% off deal with Amex pay with points, so I basically paid $160 for it. This is a great price for a good device.

Speaking of radon, how bad is a 6.5 reading? I know the EPA recommends mitigation above 4.0, but im not sure if 6-7 is horrible or not.

WHO recommends mitigation over 2. If its in your basement and the basement is unoccupied i wouldn't worry about it.

Most people seem to be talking about basements having high levels of radon. What about rest of the house? Is this recommended in condo's without basement?

Basements are usually the worst but the whole house is susceptible. I would definitely get this if you live in a radon heavy area (Google for a map)

and pardon my ignorance but i must have been sleep during this part of current events . . .
