Comments

Happy With Results –BK, California

"The SolarBees in our raw water reservoir are running fine. We are happy with the SolarBee installations and their results."

Haven't Had To Boost –TC, California

"We have not had to boost since the installation! In the past we have had to boost every 1-2 weeks."

Hard Working Crew –JL, Wisconsin

"Your service crew are hard workers. Their knowledge in repairing the SolarBees was excellent. They are a valuable asset to SolarBee and to their customers."

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."

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."

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 [Medora] is providing us. [Your] efforts are appreciated."

Greater Clarity –MO, California

"We saw greater clarity almost immediately."

Great To Work With –WK, South Dakota

"Your crew arrived early today. They were really great to work with."

Best Water Quality Ever –JM, California

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

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!"

Great Team -JW, Nevada

"Great team you have, the install went well. Thanks again for all your help"

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!"

Smells Like Spring Instead Not Odors –CN, South Dakota

"Every spring, for several weeks, odors would roll over the whole town. So, we installed SolarBee mixers in our ponds. Now, residents can look forward to smelling spring in the air instead of the treatment plant. We don't notice anything in the spring anymore."

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."

Best Investment –PJ, California

"We love our SolarBees. It is the best investment we have ever made."

The SolarBee Made It Through The Hurricane, Thoroughly Impressed- SP, Florida

On September 10th, 2017, Hurricane Irma (known here un-affectionately as Big Irma) blew at a recorded 142 mph very near our SB10000. On September 12th I drove by the SB10000 location and noted that the machine had dragged its moorings a few dozen feet toward the west but was still operating as if nothing happened. I have to say how thoroughly impressed I am with the design and quality of your product.

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."

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."

Pond Looks Like An Ad –JS, Massachusetts

"Our pond looks like an ad for Poland Spring, with very good clarity!"

The SolarBees Have Served Us Well! -SG, Arizona

"We appreciate the courtesy service on the SolarBee's. The units have served us well since they were put into service, with only minor maintenance required."

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."

What A Difference –SH, California

"Wow! What a difference SolarBees have made in our water quality."

A Great Investment –PJ, California

"We love the SolarBees. It is the best investment that we have ever made!"

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. "

Dramatic Decrease -PD, Massachusetts

“So far the three units (GridBee® AP500 Wet Well Mixers) we have installed are working great, we have seen a dramatic decrease in alarm calls due to grease or debris buildup on floats or other pump controls.”

Outstanding Job -JG, California

"Your staff did an outstanding job and very politely answered many questions from our curious members. Thank you for providing outstanding service."

No Issues –RC, Oregon

"The two SolarBee machines have been "working great" and we have no issues or needs at this time."

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."

Reduced THMs –JL, Nevada

"The SB10000PWv18 mixer has greatly helped to reduce our THMs just with mixing so we are very happy with the benefits of the large machine."

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."

Increased Water Clarity –SH, California

"We did not have to use chemicals at all last year. The water clarity went from one foot to eight feet and we had no algae blooms."

Reduced Chlorine Boosting –SS, Nevada

"We are very happy with the SolarBee and GridBee units' performance in reducing our chlorine boosting needs and meeting our THM limits."

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!"

Summer Is Going Great! –W, Colorado

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."

Controlling Odors –PL, Michigan

"We are very happy with the SolarBees for controlling odors in the primary ponds. We now have a phosphorus limit of 1.0 and plan to use SolarBees to add chemical to reduce phosphorus before discharge."

Happy With SolarBee –JD, West Virginia

"We have not used diffused air since the SolarBees were installed! We are very happy with our SolarBees."

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."

8-10 ft. Secchi Depths –JH, Oregon

"Our Secchi depths are ranging 8-10 ft. We are happy with the results!"

Great Results -TN, Colorado

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!"

One Of A Kind Company -KT, CA

“You’re a one of a kind company. You get things done and you stand behind your product. You don’t find much of that these days.”

Met Expectations –MM, California

"Our THM system is working very well and has met our expectations."

Down To 182Hp/day –AK, Oregon

"Right now we are down to an average of 182Hp/day. Our baseline when the project started was 568Hp/day. The initial estimates were for a reduction of 35.2% and we are down 68%. We started reducing aeration and by Oct. 2010 we were at 330/day. By July 2011 we were at 214/day and now we are at about as low as we want to go."

Very Reliable & Met Objectives –DC, Colorado

"The two SolarBee's installed in 2007 have been very reliable and have met their objectives. We actively recommend your company to anyone with water issues in the area and you might expect a call from someone with the Colorado Dept of Health in the future."

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."

Diminished Odor Complaints –LS, California

AP2000 Working Great –CK, California

"The AP2000 is working great the last year, the old mixer plugged all the time with aquatic weeds but the AP2000 has been running non stop and it is affecting an area more then twice of the GridBee Pond Circulator. We have had great success with the SB1250 units in our other small park ponds as well."
