ThreeDigital Radon Gas Monitor for Homes Display .1 to 999.9 pci/L Radon Levels
As Seen On TV , the Family Safety Products Safety Siren Pro 3 Radon GasDetector, the HS71512, is the only EPA evaluated radon gas alarmfor home use monitoring. This is a package of three units. Test three areas of your home simultaneously for radon gas. Or gift a friend or relative with a radon alarm. Lung cancer comes not only from smoking but also from radon gas exposure. Protect your family.
Important Notes: The Safety Siren Pro 3 cannot be sold to or shipped to Iowa. Contact the Iowa Department of Public Health at (515) 281-7689 for further information. Per Iowa Department of Public Health rules, Chapters 43 (136B)
Unlike one time radon test kits, this digital radon gas monitor for home testing is a continuous radon tester with continuous radon gas monitoring. The clear, easily read digital radon level display shows short-term radon levels. Switch to see long-term radon level averages. The Safety Siren electronic radon monitor gives its first radon reading after 48 hours of radon gas sampling. Radon gas in air or water is a health hazard resulting from uranium breaking down in soil. Exposure to radon can cause lung cancer. Continuous home radon monitoring is recommended in high radon areas or when radon mitigation systems are used. Radon gas levels change according to humidity and season. See "Radon Facts" below the radon monitor information.

Radon is a colorless, tasteless and odorless radioactive gas produced by uranium breaking down in soil. High level accumulations of radon gas are hazardous to long-term health. According to the Iowa Department of Public Health, the Iowa radon survey indicates that Iowa has the largest percentage (71.6%) of homes above the US Environmental Protection Agency standard of 4pCi/L than any other state.
The Surgeon General states radon is second to smoking as the leading cause of lung cancer deaths in the United States.
The EPA and the Surgeon General recommend radon testing from the lowest living level through the 2nd floor.
Radon gas decays into radioactive particles that can be trapped in lungs as you breathe. As particles break down, small bursts of energy release that can damage lung tissue, leading to lung cancer. Not everyone exposed to elevated radon levels develops lung cancer. Time between exposure and lung cancer onset may be many years.
Home radon gas levels are not stable. Over a one-month period, radon gas readings can vary from safe to dangerous. Radon levels change due to humidity, temperature, ventilation and season.
EPA currently recommends corrective action if radon levels exceed 4 pCi/L (4 Pico-Curies per liter) on a long-term basis.
Radon gas detection requires sensitive radon test equipment.
