I see many postings on this forum where inspectors use expensive hardware based radon testing systems.
Why is the canister type system not popular?
Its only about $20 per test, this includes shipping to testing company . Its know to be very accurate.
Also, in either case (canister or hardware based system) you have to go back a second time to pick up the unit (or canisters). In the case of canisters, very often the broker will send it out for you.
Lastly, if someone “steals” the system, I would rather be out $20 and not $1000.
The only benefit of the hardware based system is that it can do long term test whereas , as far as I know the canister system cannot do long term test.
Any feedback? Thanks
