Under the agreement, Utility Service Co. will offer the PAX Mixer, a submersible active mixing system designed for potable water storage tanks, as part of its WaterMix program.

The PAX Mixer allows water managers to maintain water quality, optimize storage, conserve water, reduce energy and reduce chemical inputs, saving time, money and manpower. The PAX Water Mixer was voted the winner of the People’s Choice Award in the AWWA New Technology Showcase in 2007.

“We are delighted to be working with Utility Service Company,” said Peter Fiske, Ph.D. chief technology officer, PAX Water Technologies. “Active mixing and thorough tank maintenance work together to promote the highest-quality water in the distribution system.”
