Can someone please explain to me what an E-Perm Radon tester is? I would like to be able to do radon tests without a second trip. How much does one cost and where can i get one? Thanks.

Hi Michael,


you really cannot avoid the second trip, as the EPA guidelines state that the test needs to be conducted over a 48 hour period, the avdantage that E-perms and CLM's give is that you do not have to deal with a lab to get the results.

regards

Gerry

I guess it would be a convenience if they are in a time crunch to close on the house, but waiting four days from the day you start your sample isn’t bad to get results from a lab.

I use the Radalink monitor


http://www.radalink.com

I like the fact that I don't have to do a lot of report preparation, they provide professional consulting to the customer, etc, etc.

I preset a machine for yesterday's inspection on Wednesday morning.

When I first got to the inspection, I uploaded the machine results to Radalink.

About 1/2 hour later, I had the results on my cell phone, and the customer's and agents had the report in their e-mail.

i read in one article that even though you use the machine, they are suppose to be backed up by a canister. Does this statement hold any water? Just seen it in one of my readings. I use the canisters.

Depending on State regulation there is a requirement regarding duplicates on all types of monitors.

I hired a physicist to build me the world’s only e-Perm electret recharger. A volt is a volt, but recharge fees are forever icon_biggrin.gif .

Erby, how much for one of those units?


I have yet to get hired to do a radon test, so not sure income would outweigh cost.

Hey, when is the calibration done on an e-perm tester? How?

Peter:


Calibration is Surface Potential Electret Reader (SPER). The SPER Reader is originally calibrated by the Manufacturer and checked for accuracy Daily with a calibration electret with the reading recorded in a log. If out of calibration, the SPER needs to be sent for service/repair.

This is part of your QA/QC that may be required. Check for specific testing requirements within New Jersey.
