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.
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.
