  • Beryllium is a metallic element that can dissolve into water. It occurs naturally in New Hampshire’s bedrock and as a result, can be found in water drawn from bedrock wells. Beryllium has no taste, color or odor, so the only way to determine if it is in your drinking water is to test it in a laboratory. Beryllium was added to the Environmental Protection Agency’s list of contaminants in 1994 under the Safe Drinking Water Act. Therefore the information about its presence and effects in New Hampshire are limited.


  • Homes in New Hampshire and Massachusetts often have high levels of radon in their well water supply.

    If you suspect your home is at risk for radon contamination, it is important to conduct the proper tests and understand your radon mitigation and treatment options before installing any new filtration equipment. Skillings & Sons has been helping homeowners test and treat water contaminated with radon for three decades and can help you choose the right option for your home.
