The Crew Worked Proficiently –MV, New Mexico

Excellent Support! -BB, Florida

"Thank you for your excellent support!"

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.

65% Energy Savings –DS, Pennsylvania

"We are happy with the SolarBees performance. We have experienced a 65% energy savings and have not had any violations since the SolarBees have been installed. We are considering future purchases from SolarBee."

No Complicance Issues –J, Arizona

"Although we had one of the three tanks down for cleaning / coating during the summer, with only two tanks operating taking all of the demand, the Medora THM Removal Systems performed well; did not have any THM concerns or compliance issues during the summer."

Quality Company –AA, Minnesota

"We can see by the professional service provided and the quality of the crews and trucks that SolarBee is indeed a quality company."

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."

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."

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. "

Surprised & Amazed -CJ, Minnesota

"To say I am surprised that there was no ice in the three tanks would be an understatement. And the fact we removed virtually all the ice from an iced over tank in three days of running is amazing."

Summer Is Going Great! –W, Colorado

"Summer is going great! Water quality is good. We had secchi depths to the bottom in June. We are starting to get our "pond biology" back (i.e. fish, frogs...) We are very happy with the operation of the SolarBee, customer service and contact capability."

D.D.. Washington

"Awesome and perfect. There have been no water quality issues all summer."

Outstanding Job -JG, California

Great Results -TN, Colorado

"The mixer has worked so great for us that we would like to order another one."

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."

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 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."

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."

Great To Work With –WK, South Dakota

Increased Wildlife –NP, New York

"The pond now "looks great!" There is no evidence of any green slime on the pond surface, which was thick this time last year. We are also seeing an increase in wildlife; frogs, birds, birds of prey. The pond was a smelly stagnant eyesore last year, but not this year."

Amazed –SM, Colorado

"We are amazed how clean the water is. At the beginning we hoped the SolarBees would "kinda work", but we test the lakes all the time and it proves they really do the job. "

Energy Savings & Odor Free –RF, California

"Our energy savings were initially a couple of thousand dollars per month. We have approximately 500 HP of aeration available which was running full time prior to SolarBee. Currently it is running about half of the time. The odors in cells 1 & 2 are down and last winter they were "odor free". SolarBee service is A-1."

Working To Get Additonal Machines –RP, Oregon

"Your installation team exhibited high quality professionalism. The great results from the modeling output shows the degree of mixing achieved. The performance achieved by the unit is great. We will continue to work with our department for additional SolarBees in our additional 17 potable water tanks."

Everything Is Working Great –TR, Kansas

Very Impressed –CV, Tennessee

"We attended the SolarBee installation and were very impressed. We enjoyed being able to view the installation first hand.

SolarBee Saved Us -VG, Texas

"The SolarBee units saved us the last two years!"

Fantastic Customer Service –ES, Florida

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

Increased DO –JB, Texas

"SolarBee greatly increased DO throughout the reservoir. There have been major increases in wildlife in the area as the water is much more habitable now. We've completely stopped using copper sulfate at the reservoir, and we've also noticed a decrease in the amount of chemicals we've needed to use at our treatment plant. Our staff is very pleased with the performance of this system, especially with the overall decrease in chemical usage at both the reservoir and the plant. The SolarBee will pay for itself in roughly 2-3 years."

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!"

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."

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.”

Working Great! –JG, California

"The units are all working great, that's why you do not hear from us very often. When we need parts, you ship them right away. We are having no water quality problems." This comment represents some 40 installations in this area.

Performing Like A Champ –FU, California

"The SolarBee SB4000 brush type unit is performing like a champ, and it keeps on spinning. We are thrilled with the performance and it is bullet proof."

Pleased With The Bees- JB, Colorado

"We are very pleased with the performance of the SolarBees up at the reservoir. It was a much easier autumn thanks to them."

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."

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!"

Grateful To Work With Professionals –JH, Louisianna

"SolarBee has provided wonderful service and support and we are grateful to work with such professionals."

No Algae Or MN Issues –VS, California

"We have not experienced any algae or MN issues since we installed the SolarBee."

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."

Thanks! –SE, Florida

"Thanks! You guys do fantastic service trips!"

Works Like Clockwork –JT, Colorado

"This year the system worked like clockwork, no problems, no algae blooms. We are sold on the product. Your service is great."

Great Customer Service Skills! -QJ, California

"I very much appreciate the expedient service we received...great customer service skills!"

Thank You For The Hard Work –AP, Ohio

"Just wanted to share with you our current THM results. Since installing the spray system our results always run below 70 ppb and most of the time around 50 ppb. Also, just want to say again, thank you, for the hard work all of you have provided NB in solving our THM troubles."

Extra Steps To Make Customers Happy –LC, New Hampshire

"We have never had a crew onsite that are the caliber of these men. They are not only professional but take extra steps to make sure the customer is happy. They have great attitudes, work ethic and politeness."
