Introducing the "Airwell" Radon in Water "in well" aeration system.
Does your well water have a foul smell? Does it stain your dishes and laundry? Are you concerned about naturally occurring radon levels in your residential well water?
Airwell is designed to treat residential groundwater like mother nature intended, by supplying the aquifer with a safe and cleansing supply of atmospheric oxygen.
As the Airwell system feeds oxygen to your well water, it strips away trapped gases while eliminating odors and unwanted mineral elements.
Unlike standard aeration systems, Airwell eliminates the need for costly and inconvenient chemicals or home treatment processes.
Advanced Radon Mitigation & Water Treatment installs, repairs, maintains and services Airwell systems for homes and businesses throughout Southern, Central and Eastern New Hampshire.
A pipe with an aeration section is inserted from top to bottom in the well through the addition of riser pipes. A low voltage compressor delivers air to the active section of the Airwell pipe. This creates a hydrodynamic pressure, causing water from the base of the well to rise through the pipe and be aerated through the active section.
The result: injected air will have stripped previously trapped gasses out of the water in the relatively pressurized conditions at the top of the well.
Air access is restored to the water enabling the ventilation of gases, such as radon and methane, to the atmosphere. The system quickly and reliably removes contaminants.
- maintenance free
- minimal operating cost
- no scaling or bio-fouling
- no chemicals
How The Airwell Treatment Improves Water Quality
The Airwell, system is designed to treat residential groundwater supplies coming from aquifer sources devoid of prior access to atmospheric oxygen. Unable to vent to the atmosphere, gases, such as methane, radon, and other volatiles may accumulate under pressure in such water. Additionally, without contact to the oxygen of the atmosphere, excess oxidizable mineral elements such as iron, manganese, and sulphide may develop towards causing staining and plugging deposits in the user’s water system once air access does occur.
The Airwell installation seeks to restore air access to the water for remedying its prior restraints. Basically, a steady source of air is provided in an aeration tube that extends all the way to the bottom of the well. This air injection lifts the water column in the tube to pour an aerated flow of water onto the top of the water level of the well itself. As water is drawn from the bottom of the well and returned onto the top, in a few hours all the water in the well will usually have passed through the aeration cycle several times.
The result is that the injected air will have stripped previously trapped gases out of the water and will have done so at the quite depressurized conditions at the top of the well.
Meanwhile, the dissolved oxygen in the aerated water as delivered to the bottom of the well with up to 10 mg/L of oxygen ends up opposite to the aquifer zone from which the well obtains its water. During quiescent, non-pumping intervals, such as with a nighttime residential cycle, this dissolved oxygen diffuses out into the aquifer to oxidize contaminants before they get access to the well itself. Oxidized contaminants are thus filtered within the aquifer itself, on the basis that water withdrawals at any one time do not exceed several hundred gallons.
Now, aeration can be considered one of the simplest, chemical-free procedures that one can imagine; but, any standard aeration of well waters usually plugs severely in a manner of weeks, unless the patented Airwell techniques are applied. Airwell systems entail no over-dosable chemicals and no inconvenient home treatment processes.
The water is treated the way that nature would have, if air access to the aquifer would have been available.
