As a member of AARST, I applaud the Desert News for making citizens aware of the danger of radon gas. There are no safe levels of radon, which causes 21,000 deaths per year through lung cancer. It is important to note that the component in the photograph is a U-Tube manometer, which is used to measure the negative pressure being generated beneath the slab of a structure by a radon mitigation system. This device does not measure radon gas. You may want to consider an errata including a photograph of a continuous radon monitor or an activated carbon short term test kit.
