gold star iconIxom Watercare works hard to provide the best water quality improvement solutions with the best service & support in the industry. Here are some of what we call "Gold Star Comments".

Comments

Medora Corporation Is Reliable –TM, California

"I know I can rely on Medora Corporation. Their attention to engineering detail is exceptional. We can really see the time and effort they took in developing their GridBee THM reduction unit. Nobody else on the market thinks about these things; it's well beyond what anyone else would have done."

Solved Problems –RL, California

"SolarBees have solved our dimethyl mercury problem."

Appreciative For The Help- LV, Wisconsin

"I appreciate the time you've taken and your company's willingness to stand behind its product. It's one of the reasons I recommend your mixers to others."

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."

Very Satisfied –KK, California

"The SolarBee continues to do its job. The water quality people are quite pleased that it has been able to maintain the residual and lack of problems with water quality. I think you could say, yes I am very satisfied."

Built Too Well! –DM, North Carolina

"These Solarbee units just run. You built them too well!"

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."

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 Crew –JL, Nevada

"I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude for the professionalism of your Solar Bee 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 to complete the installation."

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."

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."

Pond Is Looking Good! –LV, Texas

"Our pond had been suffering from filamentous algae. After the new GridBee units were installed the filamentous algae started bunching up and dying off quickly. The water in the pond is really looking good!"

Eternally Grateful –RL, California

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

Top Shelf Service –BH, Colorado

"SolarBee's thorough service and continued interest in our project is top shelf."

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."

Fast Response –MC, California

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

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."

No Nitrification Issues –JG, California

"We essentially have had no nitrification issues in 2008. The mixing with the injection system allows us to keep our ratios of chlorine and ammonia in check. Everything is working well and we have no service issues."

Extremely Pleased –HR, California

"It's good to hear from SolarBee. The SolarBee in our lake has been great and we are extremely pleased with its performance and we shared this with our board of directors."

Excellent Service & Product –JB, California

"We have not had any nitrification events with the SolarBees in this reservoir. Your service and product are excellent."

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."

Ready To Install Additonal Mixers –RG, California

"The City has been very pleased with the chlorine residual improvements in the vicinity of our tanks where we installed the two GS-12's. We are ready to install 3 additional mixers."

Doing Excellent -KB, New York

"The SolarBee is doing excellent and we absolutely have no complaints! Thanks for reaching out!"

THMs Came Down –JV, California

"We are very happy with the results of the GS-12 mixers we installed, one in each of our 600,000 gallon tanks. We previously had high THMs in these tanks. The THMs came down considerably and we are very happy with the results."

Wonderful Experience –IP, Texas

"The SolarBee technicians could not have been more professional and generous with their knowledge and strength. Working with SolarBee has been a wonderful experience."

A Job Well Done -AB, New Jersey

"I would like to offer my thanks for the job well done by your team. Despite the limitations placed on them by our Covid-19 precautions, they cooperated fully, and with professionalism."

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."

A God Send –LP, California

"SolarBees have been a 'God send' for this lake."

A Pleasure To Work With –GB, New York

"It has been a pleasure to work with the SolarBee crews on their many trips here over the last couple years."

Reduced Macrophytes –DI, Alberta Canada

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

Improved Circulation & Resolved Stratification –RN, California

"We have seen the benefits of the installation of the SolarBees in our storage facilities. It has definitely improved circulation inside these potable storage's and solved the stratification problems we have been experiencing."

Successful Installation -RM, New York

"Everyone I have worked with has been knowledgeable, friendly, professional and confident with their expertise of your products. I look forward to working with you again."

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."

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."

$15,000 Electric Cost Decrease –RF, California

"The SolarBees are great. We saw a $15,000 decrease in our electric costs in January with the SolarBees operating!"

Best Company To Work With –TG, Colorado

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

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."

Best Water In 12 Years! –VK, Oregon

"The Solar Bees must be working! This is the best the water has looked since I started working here, and that's about 12 years."

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."

No Shoreline Slime –JJ, Georgia

"We are very happy with the SolarBees. There is no green slime along the shoreline. This is a major difference that we attribute entirely to the SolarBees. We would gladly serve as a positive reference for SolarBee."

Good Quality Even At Low Levels –DL, California

"We have had very good water quality even with low levels. We have had very good deep DO which we never had before. We are very happy with the SolarBee installations."

SolarBee Believer –TG, Colorado

"Honestly, I consider SolarBee to be one of the finest companies we have worked with in my 30-year career in the power plant chemistry field!" The mixers in our pond work well. I am definitely a SolarBee believer now!"

Best Service Staff –ES, Florida

"Your company has some of the best service staff of any company around! We really appreciate all the great work that SolarBee does for us!"

Great Results! –JL, Georgia

"We performed a temperature profile 3 weeks after the installation of the SolarBee. The water temperature difference was one tenth of a degree Celsius throughout entire tank (24.1 degree C top, 24.0 degree C bottom). Great results."

Impressive Professionalism –TB, Tennessee

"We were very impressed and enjoyed being able to view the installation first hand. I wanted to send my appreciation to your installation crew who were on site during the installation. They were good representatives for your company. Their professionalism on site was impressive."

AP500 Doing Wonders! -WR, California

"The AP500 is doing wonders. It has solved the grease problem that we were having in this wet well. We have just finished our July 4th town festivities, normally a time for heavy loading, and the AP500 performed great during this period. We are running the air compressor 24/7. The compressor is quiet and unobtrusive. We are pretty excited about the AP500 and it has exceeded our expectations."

Haven't Added Copper –KC, Arkansas

"We were adding 600-700 lbs of copper sulfate per week from June through September before the SolarBees were installed. We haven't added any copper sulfate since the installation."

Drastically Reduced Algae –JS, California

"The SolarBee have drastically reduced the filamentous algae in our pond."

Cleared Up Water –GM, Connecticut

"The water has cleared up so well that we found a missing car in the pond's bottom that was stolen eight years ago."

Easy To Install -JA, Colorado

Installation of the mixers was quite easy and the instructional video was helpful. Having all the necessary tools and equipment included in the package was great too!

The Crew Works Hard –MV, New Mexico

Very Impressed -DT, Florida

"I wanted to let you know that we were very impressed with the professionalism displayed by your staff who set this up in the lake."

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!"

Thanks For Checking –SM, Illinois

Smells Like Spring Instead Not Odors –CN, South Dakota

Wish All Vendors Were Like SolarBee –SP, California

"We wish all of our vendors would be like SolarBee."

Cost & Chemical Savings! –JN, Georgia

"Solar Bees have completely eliminated our need for Algaecide application in the lake and has lowered our PAC (powdered activated carbon) usage by at least 75% This has truly been a tangible cost savings. Direct chemical savings from the Solar Bees have been over $250,000 this first full year cycle. Customer support and service have been superb. Top notch in that area. These are very well built, well designed, robust pieces of equipment. Our expectations have been met. Yes, I am a fan of Solar Bees. They simply work. "

Considering how cold this winter has been, that is amazing. Who knew your mixers really did work? The owner is extremely happy with this as you can imagine."

Gold Stars Around –KN, Oregon

Simple To Install –CR, Connecticut

Consistent Levels Of CL Residual –SC, Michigan

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!"

NO Odor –JT,Michigan

"We have NO odor and very little sludge or slurry. We are happy with our Solarbees!"

Impressed –VQ, North Carolina

Best Purchase Ever –RS, Michigan

"This is our third year that we have not had to add chemicals to reduce our phosphorous levels. The SolarBees continue to run without missing a day of run time year around. It is probably the best purchase the city has ever made!"

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."
