Working With Customers Builds Relationships –JP, North Carolina

"I appreciate the way Medora works with customers. I have previously worked in sales and marketing with XXXXXXXX, and they were not this smart.

1.5 Years With No Algae Problems –MD, Washington

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."

Algae Reduced 50% –JS, California

Wonderful & Efficient- GT, Alaska

"The SolarBee is performing wonderfully and efficiently. Thank you for your assistance with your great product."

Pleased With SolarBee Results –RF, Colorado

"There was some ice in the tank this year but it didn't completely freeze like it had before the SolarBee was installed. It was a very cold winter; coldest it has been in a very long time. We are pleased with the results of the SolarBee."

Greatly Improved Water Quality –EJ, Florida

"The lake water quality is greatly improved since the installation of the SolarBee. There are less algal blooms, and water stratification. The secchi readings are the greatly improved since the SolarBee installation. We are very happy with the performance of the SolarBee.'

Best Customer Service –KE, Florida

"Thank-you so much for the best customer service moment yesterday when the techs were out troubleshooting our Solar Bee. The three techs (Derek, John and Matt) deserve to be recognized also in their hard work and professionalism. I'm very happy that the Solar Bee is working now."

Adding A Second SolarBee –MP, California

"The SolarBee has controlled the blue green algae. It has been an easy decision to add a second unit for hypolimnetic aeration."

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."

Reduced Macrophytes –DI, Alberta Canada

"The macrophytes in this lake have been greatly reduced since the installation of the SolarBee!"

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. "

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."

We Rely On SolarBees –W, Colorado

Best Water Quality Ever –JM, California

"We have had the best water quality in our lakes ever! We give the credit to the SolarBees."

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."
