Our Services

At pHX Water, we take the hassle away from water maintenance. You can depend on us for all the cleaning, sampling, and reporting services you need to meet water maintenance regulations and provide safe drinking water.

We can protect your customers, clients, and employees from harmful bacteria.

Legionella is a naturally occurring form of bacteria found in water sources such as rivers, lochs, ponds, and reservoirs such as those found within Midlothian. When water is pumped into your hot water tank or cold storage tank, legionella has a new breeding ground. If not properly managed, the non-hazardous amounts of legionella can rapidly multiply and pose a threat to health.

Legionella enters the body through the respiratory system via droplets of water. Even a small amount of legionella causes a 10% mortality rate.

Water systems are an often overlooked yet essential part of any commercial or industrial building. Without a water tank, your building would not be able to serve its purpose. It is important to regularly check the levels of bacteria in your water tank.


What Is a Private Water Supply Midlothian

The term private water supply applies to tanks that are not fed from the mains water network that is supplied by Scottish Water. It mostly refers to industrial or commercial properties, but some domestic properties in Midlothian also use private water systems.

Around 3% of the Scottish population drink from a private water supply, which means that 163,500 people must test their water system every year.


What Is Private Water Supply Testing Midlothian?

People who own properties that feed on private water supplies in Midlothian must test their water. Testing, which is sometimes referred to as sampling, is an important part of maintaining a safe supply of water.

Our private water supply testing system ensures that the amount of bugs, chemicals, and metals in your water stays below a certain level. This means that your building will comply with Scottish water maintenance laws. It is important to note that a water supply sample can only provide a snapshot of the moment it was taken.

If you have a large, industrial, or commercial private water supply in Midlothian you must have it tested once a year.
