Question How to guide for cleaning BubbleUp Jr Radon Reduction Bubbler?

All,

Looked all over the web. Cannot find a guide. In their documentation it has a couple of high level instructions. Wondering if anybody has done this maintenance themselves and can provide some information on how it's done.

The manual has these steps listed:
We recommend that you have your Bubble‐Up® Jr Interactive™ unit checked once a year by a qualified installer. The yearly checkup may include these steps: • Run raw water and filtered water radon tests. • Replace the cartridge in the pre-filter and disinfect. • Clean the main Bubble‐Up® Jr Interactive™ tank as described below. • Disinfect the unit as needed. (Pour one ounce of bleach into the pre‐filter cartridge housing.) • Clean and rebuild solenoid valve. 1/2"Rebuild Kit PN: BUB019C or 3/4" Rebuild Kit PN: BUB020C • Replace 9‐volt battery in Water Alarm Valve Control

Their interactive manual is pretty thorough. I don't think you're going to find a step by step DIY instruction manual. When it's a life safety issue like radon.... it's critical to make sure the scrubber is performing properly. That's why the manufacturer recommends factory servicing every year.

I'll ask specific questions that the manual doesn't explain then. Where is the solenoid valve and where can I buy the rebuild kit mentioned in the article? (Googling the part number returns no relevant results)

Thanks!

So, nobody has a bubbler that they have serviced I guess?

Going to move on from this forum. For documentation purposes, I am going to pay the company that installed it $160 for the cleaning since I wasn't able to find the expertise to answer questions here.

@PJMax - There is no scrubber. A bubbler removes radon by aerating the water and venting the gasses outside.
