This is an image of the periodic table, showing Radium. Radium is a radioactive element and can be found in some water supplies.


Similar in nature to radon, except as a metal, radium is a radioactive material which is found in the environment in rocks, soil, and water. As a radioactive material, radium releases energy over time through decay. It is more commonly found in acidic water. High levels of exposure to radium can lead to bone cancer.

Solution: The best way to remove radium from your water supply is with a Carroll Water whole home water conditioner and a point of use reverse osmosis system.
