Reaped Rewards –BT, California
"Taking a step forward in technology has reaped a variety of rewards for this Public Utility District. Each of these rewards came about as a result of the district's installing a SolarBee, in each of our six ponds. The estimated savings to the electrical grid will be $113,700 and 855,722 kilowatt hours per year!"
Seamless Satisfaction- CM, Massachusetts
"I can’t believe how seamlessly this worked out. This is why we push for you guys on our projects."
Decreased Chemical Usage –JB, Texas
"Our staff is very pleased with the performance of this system, especially with the overall decrease in chemical usage at both the reservoir and Plant #1. The SolarBee will pay for itself in roughly 2-3 years!" We've completely gotten away from using copper sulfate at the reservoir, and we've also noticed a gradual decrease in the amount of chemicals we've needed to use at our Plant #1." I just wanted to let you know how happy we are with our SolarBee that you set up at our raw water reservoir."
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."
Tested SolarBee Thouroughly –GC, California
"We like the way the SolarBee is working as far as results go. We have tested the SolarBee thoroughly for about two months and find that it is working as as you predicted it would."

"Thank you. Your thorough service and your continued interest in our SolarBee project is top shelf!"
Exemplary Service -JB, Oklahoma
"In business it’s sometimes easy to point out what’s not right, and to take good service for granted. So, I wanted to take a moment to let you know what exemplary service one of your Engineers is giving [us]. He spent considerable time on the phone helping us understand Medora’s scope of supply, conveying what we needed to do to prepare for Medora’s delivery, and also discussing options for installation. He followed up our call with clear, concise drawings and written instructions. His efforts are appreciated. Thank you and best regards..."
It's Been A Pleasure -DH, Florida
"Your company has consistently been a pleasure to deal with which is welcome change from the norm."
We've Cut Down On Chlorine –MC, California
"Our city has seen improved residual since installing the GS-12s in both of our 3 MG potable tanks. The residual has improved from 0.2 mg/l to 0.8 mg/l. Due to the higher residual amounts we have cut back on their chlorine usage at the treatment plant. We will be looking at purchasing additional GS-12s in the future too for his other tanks."
Rare To Find This Level Of Support –CG, Michigan
"It's rare to find the product support and level of customer service provided by SolarBee."
Improved Overall Water Quality –JE, Colorado
"The SolarBee is working well with no apparent issues....We believe the overall water quality of the reservoir has improved (much better clarity and less algae) since the addition of the SolarBee."
Started Working in 3 Hours –DW, New York
"We installed a SB1250V12PW in our 500,000 gal water tank. We positioned the SolarBee in a stagnant area of tank, opposite the common inlet/outlet pipe. After 3 hours of SolarBee operation we took a water sample at a nearby business that receives its water from this tank. The chlorine read 0.7. In the all the years that I have worked for the city, I have never seen it above 0.2. It must be the SolarBee already mixing the stagnant water in the tank."
Less Than Three Year Payback –JN, Georgia
"We based everything on a conservative assumption for a 50% reduction in chemicals used to treat the BGA and associated T&O. At a 50% reduction we looked at a 8 year payback. In reality, we were very surprised by being able to reduce the chemicals by 90% which gave us less then a 3 year payback. This is not the norm for the water treatment industry. Usually we look at 10, 15, or 20 year returns on investments. Solar Bees is one of those products that does exactly what we needed it to do and what the engineers at Medora said they would do. It out-performed everyone in our organization's expectations."
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."
Amazing To Look At –MY, New York
Regarding SolarBee's impact on biofilm on the tank interior: "The tank is empty now and they are cleaning as we speak. The sides of the tank are very clean and we are down to about 1/2 to 1 inch of debris in the bottom. It is amazing to look at what is in the tank now, compared to what was there pre-SolarBee. "
Increased Chlorine Residuals –RL, Connecticut
"We are happy with the way the SolarBee system in our tank is working. We are noticing increased chlorine residuals throughout the area."
Everything Is Functioning Properly –JO, Oregon
"Our GS-12 submersible mixer installation went very smoothly. Everything is functioning properly and we are very happy with the installation."
Best Company- MD, California
"Medora Corporation is the best company I have dealt with in my 23 years with the city."
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."
No Blue Green Algae! –PT, Colorado
"We have had a great year with no blue green algae! We have not heard any negative comments from anyone and are very happy with the SolarBee unit."
Enjoying Improvements –PN, Arkansas
"We are enjoying the improvements SolarBees have provided our reservoir."
Knowledgeable & Professional -RP, Pennsylvania
"Thanks for your great service. The crew was knowledgeable, professional, and made quick work. We look forward to working with your company again in the future."
No Icing Problems –SC, Michigan
"Our tower is too small to lower the level much during the winter. Because we use the height of the water for pressure, we need to keep it as full as possible. Plus, lowering the water level compromised fire flow capacity. As a result, ice cakes were formed in the tank every winter. After installing the GS-12 mixer, I was able to keep the tank full during the winter with no icing problems."
Professional. Knowledgeable. -TH, Arizona
"Sorry this took some time to write. I wanted to say your crew was very professional, knowledgeable and worked very well together. It was very nice to work with them."
Happy Neighbors –JS, Massachusetts
"We sent you a recent picture. The rainbow didn't quite end at the SolarBee, but it was close. In the meantime we have had excellent water quality this year--so far better than any recent year for mid-July. Lots of happy neighbors."
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!"
Reduced TOC –GT, Colorado
"We are very happy with the installations of the five SolarBees in the reservoir. SolarBees have reduced the TOC component in the lake which in turn has reduced the need to replace the carbon in the contactors in the water plant."
Turned Off Our Aerators –DC, California
"We have the best water quality I've ever seen and we've been able to turn off our aerators."
Good People -RM, New York
"The installation went well, you have very good people throughout [your] company."
Very Customer Orientated –DS, Massachusetts
"The two men involved in the installation were cordial, smart, hard working, soft spoken, and very customer orientated. In short they are a very good representation of the company!"
Can't Say Enough –VK, California
"We can't SAY ENOUGH about your team and your company. Now, if I could only put the rest of my 60+ pumps and another 60+ motors on SolarBees, life would be great. Thanks so much for the OUTSTANDING CUSTOMER SERVICE!"
Great Results -TN, Colorado
"The mixer has worked so great for us that we would like to order another one."
Best Year For Algae Control –GM, Colorado
"First of all, the two new units look great, as does the lake! This is the best year we have experienced for algae control!"
Never Looked Better! –KW, New Jersey
"SolarBee provided excellent service during the past two years. Our pond has never looked better!"
Love It -JG, New Hampshire
"Medora is the greatest to work with. Love it"
2019 Looking Good, Best Water Clarity -SD, California
"I'm very happy to report that both the performance of our 4 SolarBees, as well as our lake's water quality have remained in very good shape throughout the summer. In fact, our current water clarity of 25' represents the best level of clarity seen in 2019.
Preventing Fish Kills -JA, Colorado
"The SolarBee units continue to work well to prevent fish kills in high elevation mountain lakes by keeping an open area in the ice."
Highly Professional Crew –BE, Oregon
"The SolarBee crew was highly professional and very proficient with safety issues. We have learned a lot about safety issues that they incorporated into their practices."
8-10 ft. Secchi Depths –JH, Oregon
"Our Secchi depths are ranging 8-10 ft. We are happy with the results!"
VERY Pleased –MH, Montana
"We are VERY pleased with the SolarBee performance at our reservoir! The secchi depth is about 18 ft. and the algae count is way down."
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."
More Zooplankton –DB, California
"Excellent! I am seeing more zooplankton than ever before. In the past we have had clear water this time of year - but it was due to a blue algae die off and the fish were skinny. There was no zooplankton - very unhealthy. We would also be subject to severe filament algae blooms. This does not occur anymore - we have clean water that is healthy and the fish are flourishing!"
Complete Turnaround –GL, California
"We very very impressed and happy with the SolarBee in one of our worst tanks where we were constantly having to deep cycle and flush. It has been a complete turnaround in this tank."
BeeKeeper, A Great Deal –DG, New Hampshire
"We really like our SolarBee, your company and the BeeKeeper (maintenance and service plan). The BeeKeeper costs $8k per year and is saving $120k per year on power. This is a great deal! We used to pay more than $8k per year maintaining blowers. We have not run our blowers for several years."
Very Appreciated! –DC, Minnesota
"Thank You for the complimentary service. We don't know of anyone that comes out at the time when the warranties expire and replaces worn components to assure optimum life. Very generous and appreciated!"
You Are Terrific –DR, Minnesota
"You folks are terrific to deal with! I am quite used to having issues with equipment. The real challenge is getting suppliers to work with me to resolve issues and your outfit excels at that.I appreciate your patience with my sloooow return of the components."
Want To Buy More –DR, California
"We have nothing but good things to say about the SolarBees in our lake. This is our 4th unit and we want to buy more."
Freshest Water –GD, California
"SolarBee's in our lakes and water tanks puts the freshest water in our glasses."
Project Success! –AP, Ohio
"We are very pleased with the THM test results to date along with the operation of the SolarBee system. We have attached sheets that includes all THM testing to date. We are extremely happy with the test results for the 3rd quarter. I am now convinced we have a system that will help the village comply with Stage 2 THM rules. Thanks to all that made this project a success!"
Greatly Improved -DS, Colorado
"Heavy algae growth was frequently plugging off the filters. Now the filter plugging is greatly reduced and the [AerationPlus©] AP1800 has greatly improved the water clarity."
Professional & Knowledgeable Crew –DS, Pennsylvania
"The SolarBee crew was very professional, well prepared, and very knowledgeable."
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."
Saved Thousands –PR, Michigan
"The reservoir has very good clarity. Since the Solarbees have been installed in the system we do not have to move water through the system in order to keep the water quality high. This has saved thousands of dollars a month in the spring, summer and fall. "
Removed A Scum Layer –S, Arkansas
"This is our first AP500 installation. In 6 hours it has almost completely removed a foot thick scum layer. When we attempted to lower the unit through the scum, it wouldn't go through. It rested on top. The only way to get it down was to turn it on and let it work itself down. We are impressed."
Carbon Savings –RC, Colorado
"Before the SB we would see geosmin spikes in the 30-90 ng/L range during July-August, and 20-30 ng/L from Nov to Jan. We like to keep concentrations below 5 ng/L The highest measurement in 2009 was 8 ng/L with greatly reduced taste & odor issues, and we saved an estimated $50k in PAC savings compared to prior years. We attribute these reductions and carbon savings to the SolarBee, and are very happy with results so far."
Mixing Lowered THMs -BB, Texas
"Our first GS-9 reduced the THM levels in a standpipe by 40-50% and reduced HAA’s as well. We would like to order a 2nd GS-9 for another tank."
No Chemical Application –VS, California
"We are very happy with the SolarBees. They definitely are doing their job; we have not had to apply any chemicals to the lake since the installation of the SolarBees."

Very Satisfied –ML, California
"We are very satisfied with the SolarBees. We now only have to spot treat the pond 2-3 times a year for duckweed in small areas around the edge."
No Copper Sulfate Since SolarBee –VL, New York
"We used to use "tons" of copper sulfate in treatment and now we do not use any. Actually, we have not used any copper sulfate since the SolarBee's were installed."
No Nitrification Problems –DO, California
"The SolarBees are working great in our chloramine system. Since the SolarBees were installed we have not had any nitrification problems."
We've Cut Down On Costs –PK, Vermont
"The SolarBee unit we've had in operation since last year has allowed us to cut down on power significantly and even more importantly cut down on service costs to keep operational the surface aerators/aspirators we previous relied on completely. Your factory service and support was the main reason we went with SolarBee instead of Aeromix."
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!"
The Crew Works Hard –MV, New Mexico
"The crew arrived this morning had the installation completed by early afternoon. I compliment them on their hard work and professionalism. Anyone else would of stopped work because of the rain, not them. I really appreciate what they did for our installation."
Solved Our Manganese Problem –JL, Georgia
"These SolarBee machines work great and have solved our manganese problem."
