I thought it would be entertaining, and possibly educational, to start a topic to post the highest average Radon Concentration you have found on a Residential Real Estate transaction test. I just had mine recently at 17.8 pCi/l

19.6pCi/l is the highest I've seen.

I'd say about half the homes tested in my area are above 4.0

106 on a house that was 9 years old. I thought my equipment was broken and checked against another monitor, but it was correct

12.4 pCi/L is my highest. My area doesn't have super high averages.

The highest I have personally had was 265 pCi/l. It took installing 2 fans but I got it down to 0.5pCi/l..The highest I ever heard of in my area was 320.

That is unbelievable. And to think that people complained to a builder of a tract that had an average of 9 pCi/L and wanted the builder to install radon mitigation systems in every house.

I would still want a system installed if the Average was 9..As a matter of fact at the epa conference in Washington last year it was brought up that they are trying to lower the action level to 2 pCi/L but the biggest obstacle was the mitigators..

I don't see why the mitigators would be against making more money by having to install more.
