Lake Looks Great –HB, Michigan

"The lake looks great! There is no sign of algae and there are lots fish along the shores. We have been lake residents for 50 years and the lake looks the best it has ever been."

No More Algae OR Copper –KC, Arkansas

"We haven't had an algae bloom or had to add copper sulfate since the SolarBees were installed. We were adding 600-700 lbs of copper sulfate per week from June through September!"

Professional & Knowledgeable Crew –CD, Louisiana

"Gentlemen, On behalf of our community, I am writing to express our appreciation to Medora for the recent completion of improvements to the town’s water system. The crew sent to do the work was very professional and knowledgeable in working to promptly complete the project. Again, we thank you for your services." Mayor Pro Tem

We Are Very Happy –RP, Colorado

"The south pond was running 4 days before we got the North pond running and in that time we evaporated 0.75" in the North Pond and 1.75" in the South Pond. In each pond that equates to 27 truck loads of 4365 gallons = 117,855 gallons. We are very happy at this time !!

SolarBees Saved $37,000 –SB, Maine

"In 2007, the town was the first to install Solar Bee photovoltaic-powered wastewater circulators. The units saved the town $37,000 in its energy bill within a couple of years. With that savings, the town installed another set of solar energy devices in 2010 using an $85,000 state grant to buy the units. "

Easy Company To Work With –LG, South Dakota

"SolarBee is one of the easiest companies to work with and you go above our expectations. We are very pleased with the units and the service SolarBee provides."

SolarBees Helping Make It –PL, Alberta Canada

"We are operating way beyond our design limits and without the SolarBees, would never have been able to make it."

Phenomenal Job –IP, Texas

"The SolarBee did a phenomenal job at improving conditions. We observed not only a visual improvement in water quality but an increase in the diversity of amphibians, aquatic invertebrates, and fish populations. This leads to an increase in the use of the pond by other wildlife such as birds and mammals. These improvements also lead to a greater interest and education opportunity for the general public to learn about the benefits of improved water quality."

Working Excellent -SG, Arizona

"Our [SolarBee] units are working excellent in our effluent storage basins."

60% Energy Savings –DS, Pennsylvania

"We have seen a huge energy savings; about 60%. Our electric bill has gone from $3,000 to $1,200. We are interested in purchasing more units."

GREAT Service -GP, Ohio

"This is a GREAT service your company provides, customer service and follow-up is hard to find now a days. Please pass our THANK YOU on to your crew, we really do appreciate it."

THM Reduction Is Excellent! -DC,New York

"Attached is the Town’s most recent DBP results for the water tower. As you can see, the TTHM reduction is excellent and has brought the Town back into compliance after just one quarter of testing."

Very Impressed –JR, Colorado

"We are very impressed with the SolarBee circulators. The reservoirs are froze except around the SolarBee units. We will want to look at SolarBee units for potable tanks."

Best Company To Work With –TG, Colorado

"SolarBee is one of the best companies we have ever worked with!"

Very Helpful –DR, Illinois

"We are very happy with the service since the SolarBee installation. They will stop to check your units anytime they are in your area. They did upgrades at no cost, and have been very helpful in moving the units when needed to get better results. We have budgeted for a SolarBee for our elevated tower."

Less Copper Usage –CK, New Mexico

"We are pleased with the operation and performance of the SolarBee. We use substantially less copper sulfate since its installation. High doses of copper sulfate are detrimental to fish population--we no longer have this problem."

Thanks! –SE, Florida

"Thanks! You guys do fantastic service trips!"

Everyone Is Very Professional –KT, California

"In my 40 years I have never seen a company as good as SolarBee in providing professional service and diligence. Everyone has been very professional!"

Best Secchi Measurements In Years –AW, Massachusetts

"We had a very good summer, best Secchi disk measurements in many years (1.5m). Looking very good."

Over 30 SolarBees –MH, California

"Our system consists of some 37 SolarBee installations. We have had no nitrification events this season. This hugely important! It is primarily due to frequent monitoring, mixing and boosting when necessary."

Happy To Be A Reference –GC, Arkansas

" If you ever want to use us as a reference, I would be happy to talk with anyone of our customers. Last year around January/February we were seeing 40-50ug/L (THM readings), this year we are seeing 20-30ug/L. The real test will be known this summer. But, as soon as our larger tank is built, we intend to put another THM System in it as well. We are very happy with Medora Corporation and the SolarBee Performance!"

Chlorine Usage Dropped 50% –RN,California

"The amount of chlorine usage for the recycled water tanks dropped 50% after the installation of the SolarBees."

Fast Response –MC, California

"We loved the fast response. Installation was quick and easy."

Works Like Clockwork –JT, Colorado

In Compliance Since Install –TR, Kansas

"We are very happy with the SolarBee units. The BOD and TSS have been in compliance for over two years since the installation of the SolarBees."

Summer Is Going Great! –W, Colorado

"Summer is going great! Water quality is good. We had secchi depths to the bottom in June. We are starting to get our "pond biology" back (i.e. fish, frogs...) We are very happy with the operation of the SolarBee, customer service and contact capability."

Saved $20,000 In Chemical Costs –KW, Colorado

Commitment To Service -JC, Arkansas

"Medora's commitment to provide a high level of service at a reasonable price is very commendable. We very much appreciate it!"

Professional. Knowledgeable. -TH, Arizona

We Appreciate It! -AW, Arizona

"Thank you very much for the quick response. You guys are quick & easy to work with and we appreciate it!"

Solved Nitrification Problems –JC, California

"The SolarBee units have solved the nitrification problems at both of our installations. We have not had to boost since installation."

Extremely Pleased –RH, Oregon

"We are extremely pleased with the results achieved in Manganese reduction in our raw water reservoir this September. The decline being nearly linear shows that the reduction was caused by the SolarBee gradually oxidizing the water."

Did Not Cut Corners –LT, Arizona

"Just would like to say that your field service techs did all the work that they were supposed to and did not cut any corners. They also went above and beyond by making repairs that were damaged and it really is hard to find good employees that are like that these days so I wanted to tell them thank you when they left before I had the chance to tell them in person."

Absolutely Successful -JB, Colorado

"SolarBees have absolutely been successful in fighting our algae problem. Last year was the first year on record that there were not significant algal blooms."

High Quality Staff & Great Results –JR, Oregon

"We continue to rave about the high quality professional staff of SolarBee during the installation process, the performance achieved by the unit, and the great results from the modeling output showing the degree of mixing achieved with the unit. We plan to use those figures to convince the department to proceed with additional installations in our 17 PW tanks."

Simply Amazing –CR, Alberta, CA

"About a year ago SolarBee installed 6 solar-powered inductors for our thermally stratified shallow lake. Last winter we were experiencing significant algae problems and thermal inversions, indicative of Southern Alberta in general, coupled with the release of iron and manganese by sediment which precipitated again upon oxidation with chlorine (used for disinfection), essentially turning our production water brown. Since we were using the water as source-water for the beef-packing plant, potentially neurotoxic algae in the water was not acceptable. After installing the 6 Solar Bees we saw a drop from 10,000-40,000 cells/milliliter to ~100 cells/milliliter within 1 week! Within 2 weeks our cyanobacteria counts were below detection limits. Simply amazing."

Safe & Professional Crew –DG, California

"Your crew was out last week at our Reservoir 2. I just wanted to let you know I was very impressed with their safety and professionalism."

SolarBees Working Flawlessly –DC, California

"We have 4 SolarBees in our potable tanks. Our potable water system has a 30 MG storage capacity, but we could only utilize about 5 MG prior to the SolarBees. We were always trying to deep cycle, but were limited due to poor water quality. After the SolarBees were installed they doubled and tripled the use of our system. The SolarBees have been working flawlessly."

Saved Us Thousands –SS, Ohio

"The SolarBee installation in our new WWTP has worked great this year. It has saved us thousands of dollars from the alternative plan we were looking at before installing SolarBees."

Eternally Grateful –RL, California

"Our reservoir has two SolarBees which seem to be solving our dimethyl mercury problem. I am eternally grateful."

Fantastic Customer Service –ES, Florida

"Your company does a fantastic job on customer service!"

No Algae Issues Ever Since -NW, Oregon

"I was the Public Works Director during a time when we had a bad algae bloom in our raw water reservoir. After a few years of chemical treatment, we purchased a SolarBee circulator and have had no issues ever since."

TTHM System Performing Well - DW, Nevada

"The system is performing very well and each quarter's results seem to be reduced or stayed low. All keeping the Locational Running Annual average (LRAA) below the MCL. Thanks for all your help."

100% Satisfied –AC, West Virgina

"We are 100% satisfied with the service provided by SolarBee and are impressed with how they went the extra mile."

Glowing Report -MS, Vermont

"While in VT yesterday I stopped in at the plant see how things were going. He speaks glowingly about his Medora Corp GridBee lagoon circulators and wants to be a reference for us, any time."

Preventing Nitrification Issues –AW, California

"Our SolarBee units continue to prevent nitrification issues in our large tanks and basically prevent the problems we used to have. We continue to be happy with the machine's performance as well as SolarBee customer service."

The Best Money You'll Ever Spend –JR, California

“ The $8,000 - $10,000 that you will spend on a GridBee mixer will be the best money you will ever spend. It will solve a lot of your water problems."

We Love The Mixers! -PE, Minnesota

Increased Wildlife –NP, New York

"The pond now "looks great!" There is no evidence of any green slime on the pond surface, which was thick this time last year. We are also seeing an increase in wildlife; frogs, birds, birds of prey. The pond was a smelly stagnant eyesore last year, but not this year."

Very Pleased With SolarBees –NS, Florida

"We are very pleased with the SolarBees, and they are now on MASP. Your service crew does a great job. Our pond looks much better and we have been able to stop additions of acid for pH control."

Gratitude For A Job Well Done -JL, Nevada

"We wanted to take this opportunity to express our gratitude for the professionalism of your SolarBee installation crew. They showed up on time every day, had all the necessary safety equipment with them, a disinfection plan, and worked hard each day in the intense heat."

Cleared Effluent –KR, Georgia

"The effluent has cleared up completely. It looks like it could be drinking water!"

Dedicated Crew –PS, Massachusetts

"Thanks to the installation crew for their dedicated work Tuesday! They were very professional, knowledgeable about the equipment and its operation, and a pleasure to work with. They worked in a safe and workmanlike manner, wearing all the necessary personal protective equipment throughout the day in the hot sun when it would be easy to shed their hard hat, safety glasses or life vests to work more comfortably."

Reduced Cyanobacteria Counts –BC, Massachusetts

"The latest Secchi disk readings from yesterday varied from 1.2 - 1.4 meters, or about 4-5 feet. Prior readings showing water clarity were rarely greater than one ft. Cyanobacteria counts are reduced substantially, and microcystin counts are less than 1 ppb. Residents are saying that there are no odors (Unlike before). Elderly residents are saying they are pleased to see their grand-kids swim in a lake that was as good as when they were children."

Impressed With Results –RY, MA.

"We have been testing the water about once a week since the SolarBees were installed. We are very happy and impressed with the results."

Best Water Color –JD, West Virginia

"It is the best water color I have ever seen in all my years as an operator. DO is ranging from 11.O to 16.0 mg/l in all cells. We think the SolarBees will save us about $10,000 per year in electrical bills."

Compliance In A Month –FJ, Louisiana

"The Medora SN-15 system is definitely doing what it was supposed to do because it got our system into compliance within a month of being installed and we are very happy about that."

Improved Water In 3 Hours –FW, New York

"Just three hours after installation, we saw improvement in our water."

First Class Company –DR, Ohio

"I must tell you that your company is first class in the way you handle the customers, including the service guys. ALL of them are very responsive and polite and they seem to take their work very seriously!"

Keeping Ice Off –BK, Arkansas

"The GS-12 is doing a great job keeping the ice off our 420,000 gallon tank."

SolarBee Success Maintains Water Rate –JN, Georgia

"The success of SolarBees has allowed us for the last few years to maintain current wholesale water rate. Chemical costs are volatile; based on petro industry cost. We have been able to stabilize that volatility and maintain cost savings. We have not had a water rate increase in last 3 years, since the SolarBees were installed. We would have had an increase were it not for the SolarBees. SolarBees exceed my expectations for quality and craftsmanship and are built well. "
