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!

No Ice In Cold Winter –IG, Michigan

"Photos were taken from Lyons, MI. We put the GS-12 in last year. They wanted to see what the inside was like so we climbed up there Wednesday and took a look. The results- – no ice!!!!

Thanks for a job well done! -SG, New York

"I just wanted to take a moment to tell you that it was a pleasure working with you and the crew at Medora. You guys have been very responsive to our many requests and questions. In addition your field crew did a great job installing the mixer. It was impressive to see how careful they were protecting the equipment and materials they hoisted to the top of the tank so they didn't scratch the paint. Thanks again for a job well done."

Improved Overall Water Quality –JE, Colorado

Impressed –VQ, North Carolina

"We are impressed with the level of service provided by SolarBee for this mixer in our potable tank. We also have three competitive units in our lake and they have been nothing but trouble. We wish we had SolarBees in our lake, too!"

No Odor Problems –SW, Utah

"This is the first year that we have not had any odor problems."

Your System Works –KR, Arizona

"...For only one week we turned off the GS12-48v. Immediately we had to feed more chlorine because we lost the mixing. Since then it's back online we have better mixing and less chlorine feed. Offline we fed 4 to 10 p.p.d. of chlorine. Online we fed 0 to 4 p.p.d. of chlorine. Bottom line...your system works !"

Lake Water Looks Great! –PT, California

"Just want to say thanks: the lake water looks **great**! That SolarBee is working. I wanted you to know we really appreciate it."

Professional & Informative –DN, Texas

Ponds Working Better Than Ever –MS, California

"The system is working great/purring along. We are very happy with the sludge reduction, and we are also seeing the DO continue to come up in the ponds. The ponds appear to be working better than they ever have."

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."

We Are Tickled Pink –MO, California

"We are 'tickled pink' about the SB10000v12 unit that we just installed in our secondary WWTP. We are already seeing a big difference. They are running very well and we are seeing greater clarity."

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."

Well Mixed & No Nitrification –MO, California

"Our SolarBees are working great. Our water sampling shows the water is well mixed with no nitrification."

Thanks For Checking –SM, Illinois

"Thanks for checking on our equipment. It says volumes about your customer service, that is so lacking from many of today's firms."

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!"

Gold Stars Around –KN, Oregon

"The SolarBee has been running great even during these darkest days of the year. We would give SolarBee 'gold stars around.' We are particularly happy with the service we have received over the years, and would be more than happy to share our positive experience with SolarBee."

We Are Thrilled With SolarBee –GC, Arkansas

"We are thrilled with the SolarBee! We were having smell issues this summer. We made a minor adjustment in July where we raised our intake by one foot while we lowered the SolarBee intake by one foot. As soon as this was done, the smell issues went away."

Even Temperature –KK, California

"The SolarBee is doing what it is supposed to do since the temperature top to bottom is only tenths of a degree different. The chlorine residual only drops about a tenth each month."

No Nitrification –DO, California

"The SolarBee has been working great! We did not have nitrification this past summer for the first time in 10 years."

Substantial Savings –RP, Pennsylvania

"Our constant discharge effluent into a stream is the cleanest it has ever been. Our state no longer requires water samples on the weekends like we had to do before installation of the SolarBees. We have seen substantial savings in electrical energy costs since the SolarBee installation."

Everything Is Working Great –TR, Kansas

"We have 11 SolarBee units installed in three ponds since 2007. Everything is working great. We have not had any BOD or TSS violations since the units were installed. We are very happy with the machines and the service, and we plan to renew the Beekeeper Service Contract. "

1.5 Years With No Algae Problems –MD, Washington

"Over the last 1.5 years there has not been a blue green algae problem, when before it was a routine problem. The city operator said that if the SolarBees didn't work, he didn't know what else to do except resign." He didn't.

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

Cleanest & Best Looking Water –DB, California

"I stopped by the lake yesterday and went around the whole lake looking and some fishing - mostly looking. The water visibility is 10', the cleanest and best looking water I have ever seen in the lake! It was like an aquarium. It always gets clear this time of year, but not clean and healthy like now."

Amazing Impact –JB, California

"The SolarBees are preventative and have had an amazing impact on water quality, and water clarity. We strive to prevent any possible fish kill events. Your service crews have done a tremendous job in keeping our system functional and up to date."

Improvements Across The Board –HR, California

"Our new solar powered SolarBee mixer has been an improvement across the board with the new technology: better water quality, lower maintenance and no electricity is required."

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."

Fantastic Customer Service –ES, Florida

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

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."

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."

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."

Diminished Odor Complaints –LS, California

"The SolarBees in the reservoir are doing a great job. The taste and odor complaints and copper treatments have diminished greatly. The greatest visual impact has been on the reduction of macrophytes. We no longer harvest any weeds at all."

Best Company- MD, California

"Medora Corporation is the best company I have dealt with in my 23 years with the city."

Excellent Support! -BB, Florida

"Thank you for your excellent support!"

I Learned A Lot! -JM, Texas

Great Employees –DW, New York

"I don't know where you find employees like the ones who have visited our Lake over the past two years, but, what ever it takes, I would keep them!"

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."
