REM Teams Up with Pylon and Wescan to Provide Radon in Water Testing Services Across Canada.

November 27th, 2019Radon Environmental Management Corp. (REM) Pylon Electronics and Wescan (a Pylon Company) are excited to announce a new partnership to provide laboratory services to test radon in water across Canada. Radon is soluble in groundwater and can be found in high concentrations in areas where the geologic radon potential is known to be elevated. When the well water enters the home, the radon will off-gas through aeration when showers, faucets and toilets are run.

“We are delighted to have teamed up with Pylon and Wescan to provide this important service to the public. If you are on a well and your indoor air radon levels are high, the well could be a significant contributing factor. Inhalation of radon gas is the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers and ingestion of radon has also been linked to stomach and other cancers. To reduce radon-induced cancer risk, it is important to have well water tested for radon to save lives,” said Alan Whitehead, President & CEO of REM.

“We have been working with Radon Environmental for many years and we are excited to expand these testing services to the West coast,” said Jim Mullins, Vice President of Pylon Electronics Inc. “The Wescan team is looking forward to contributing to this important activity of helping the public understand Radon risk factors in their respective living environments.”
