Many thanks to the folks at Solar Bee!"

8-10 ft. Secchi Depths –JH, Oregon

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

The Sludge Blanket Is Gone –JW, CA

90% Ice Gone –DG, New Hampshire

"We are extremely pleased with the SolarBee unit's performance this winter especially in regard to the shore power backup. They kept our units running flawlessly all winter long. Our ice is about 90% gone."

Clear Enough To See The Bottom –JC, Oregon

"This is the first summer in quite a few years that I have been able to take my kids swimming up here. Normally at this time of the year there are green balls of gunk floating around. The shoreline is pretty clean this summer. In the past the lake had stinking moss on the edges and now the water is clear enough that I am able to see the bottom off the dock."

Very Impressed –JR, Colorado

"We are very impressed with the SolarBee circulators. The reservoirs are froze except around the SolarBee units. We will want to look at SolarBee units for potable tanks."

Increased Oxygen & Less Odor –JS, Colorado

"We are saving between $5000-$6000 a year on chemical utilization."

2019 Looking Good, Best Water Clarity -SD, California

"I'm very happy to report that both the performance of our 4 SolarBees, as well as our lake's water quality have remained in very good shape throughout the summer. In fact, our current water clarity of 25' represents the best level of clarity seen in 2019.

I Learned A Lot! -JM, Texas

"Thank you for all the help you and your whole company have provided over the last couple of years! I learned a lot from SolarBee/Medora Co!"

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."

Improved Overall Water Quality –JE, Colorado

"The SolarBee is working well with no apparent issues....We believe the overall water quality of the reservoir has improved (much better clarity and less algae) since the addition of the SolarBee."

Efficient & Professional –JC, California

"The installation went very well and the installation team from SolarBee was very efficient and professional."

Thank You! –BH, Colorado

"Thank you. Your thorough service and your continued interest in our SolarBee project is top shelf!"

Always Running –DM, North Carolina

"Tell your folks they make those things TOO well! Our crews are out on the lake every two weeks and the machines are always running whenever they check them. DO continues to be excellent."

Very Happy –RN, California

"We are very happy with SolarBee. The SolarBees are one of our best purchases in the past 20 years!"

NO Odor –JT,Michigan

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

Haven't Had To Boost –TC, California

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!"

No More Algae OR Copper –KC, Arkansas

"We haven't had an algae bloom or had to add copper sulfate since the SolarBees were installed. We were adding 600-700 lbs of copper sulfate per week from June through September!"

TTHM System Performing Well - DW, Nevada

"The system is performing very well and each quarter's results seem to be reduced or stayed low. All keeping the Locational Running Annual average (LRAA) below the MCL. Thanks for all your help."

Reduced Algae Blooms –DF, Oregon

"Our algae blooms are greatly reduced. Our pH has increased in stability and we are able to discharge much more of the time. Odors are greatly reduced, especially when we have a spring thaw."

Very Happy With Medora Corporation –SL, California

"We are very happy with your company. Everybody is friendly, informative, and we really enjoy working with you."

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."

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."

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!"

Water Clarity Record –SDA, California

"Most notably, I measured a new record water clarity level in our Lake of 25' on Friday, September 25th, 2015."

Doing Great! -TN, Colorado

"The AP500 lift station mixer is doing a great job. The grease crust is gone and the water is crystal clear!"

Outstanding! -GB, Colorado

"We appreciate Medora's outstanding customer service and follow ups".

Good Customer Service –JM, Vermont

"Not only does your company have fine products, but every person we deal with at your company does a great job! Good customer service is a rarity these days, and it’s not often that you find a sales representative to drive for hours and then use his musical talents to help raise the money to pay off a product that we bought from him! I’m glad that we have all become friends in the process."

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."

We Love The Mixers! -PE, Minnesota

"We absolutely love the mixers and they are working very well!"

Not Possible Without SolarBee –AW, California

"Our conversion to chloramine would not have been possible without SolarBees."

Everything Is Functioning Properly –JO, Oregon

"Our GS-12 submersible mixer installation went very smoothly. Everything is functioning properly and we are very happy with the installation."

D.D.. Washington

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

Efficient & Professional –RR, Arizona

"SolarBee is one of the most efficient professional groups we have ever worked with."

No Algae Or MN Issues –VS, California

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

Started Working in 3 Hours –DW, New York

"We installed a SB1250V12PW in our 500,000 gal water tank. We positioned the SolarBee in a stagnant area of tank, opposite the common inlet/outlet pipe. After 3 hours of SolarBee operation we took a water sample at a nearby business that receives its water from this tank. The chlorine read 0.7. In the all the years that I have worked for the city, I have never seen it above 0.2. It must be the SolarBee already mixing the stagnant water in the tank."

SolarBee Success Maintains Water Rate –JN, Georgia

"The success of SolarBees has allowed us for the last few years to maintain current wholesale water rate. Chemical costs are volatile; based on petro industry cost. We have been able to stabilize that volatility and maintain cost savings. We have not had a water rate increase in last 3 years, since the SolarBees were installed. We would have had an increase were it not for the SolarBees. SolarBees exceed my expectations for quality and craftsmanship and are built well. "

Good Service –JM, Colorado

"Thanks for having the crew out. The service was not nearly as easy as the report makes it sound. I really appreciate the good service and please pass my appreciation on to the crew."

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."

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. "

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."

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!"

No Blue Green Algae! –PT, Colorado

"We have had a great year with no blue green algae! We have not heard any negative comments from anyone and are very happy with the SolarBee unit."

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 City Is Pleased –AM, New York

"We presented the data to the Board last week and the City is very pleased with the results of the GS-12. You will be very pleased when we send the data."

Very Customer Orientated –DS, Massachusetts

"The two men involved in the installation were cordial, smart, hard working, soft spoken, and very customer orientated. In short they are a very good representation of the company!"

Excellent Service & Support –BJ, Georgia

"Please thank SolarBee for their excellent service and support. Your staff is very professional and competent."

Like An Aquarium –DB, California

"We now have the cleanest and best looking water I have ever seen in the lake! It is like an aquarium."

Highly Professional Crew –RP, Oregon

"Your crew was highly professional and very proficient with safety issues during the install. The City crew learned a lot about safety issues that they incorporated into their practices. "

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."

No More Odors –OT, California

"We are extremely happy with the performance of the (2) AP7000s in our clarifier at the potable water treatment plant. There is no longer any "fishy smell" or bad odors during the back washing of the filters. We feel we may have less taste & odor events in the future because of the AP mixers."

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."

Great Crew! –LP, Utah

"We were very happy with your crew at their recent visit. Thanks for sending such a great crew! AS USUAL."

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."

Great To Work With –WK, South Dakota

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

Lake Looks Great –HB, Michigan

"The lake looks great! There is no sign of algae and there are lots fish along the shores. We have been lake residents for 50 years and the lake looks the best it has ever been."

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."

So Easy To Work With –RC, Coldorado

"It's been a pleasure working with this company over the years. You have been easy to work with and all the crew members have been top-rate and very professional."

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."

Knowledgeable & Professional -RP, Pennsylvania

"Thanks for your great service. The crew was knowledgeable, professional, and made quick work. We look forward to working with your company again in the future."

Impressive Crew –JL, Georgia

"There is less than one degree of temperature difference throughout the entire tank. The professionalism of the installation crews and their commitment to safety while on the job site is impressive."

SolarBees Are Working Great –DC, Kansas

"The SolarBee machines are working really great, they have never gone out of compliance. We also like that we have a service contract because the crews check on the units and the contract extends the warranty at the same time."

Reduced Algae Blooms –DF, Oregon

"Our algae blooms are much reduced. Our pH is much more stable and we are able to discharge much more of the time. Smell is much reduced, especially when we would otherwise have a a spring thaw."

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."

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."

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."

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."

Fantastic –ES, Florida

"You guys do fantastic service trips!"

Positive Experiences -DR, Minnesota

"Every single contact with you folks has been positive and I look forward to our future dealings!"

We've Cut Down On Costs –PK, Vermont

"The SolarBee unit we've had in operation since last year has allowed us to cut down on power significantly and even more importantly cut down on service costs to keep operational the surface aerators/aspirators we previous relied on completely. Your factory service and support was the main reason we went with SolarBee instead of Aeromix."

Compliance In A Month –FJ, Louisiana

"The Medora SN-15 system is definitely doing what it was supposed to do because it got our system into compliance within a month of being installed and we are very happy about that."

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."

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."

Dedicated Crew –PS, Massachusetts

"Thanks to the installation crew for their dedicated work Tuesday! They were very professional, knowledgeable about the equipment and its operation, and a pleasure to work with. They worked in a safe and workmanlike manner, wearing all the necessary personal protective equipment throughout the day in the hot sun when it would be easy to shed their hard hat, safety glasses or life vests to work more comfortably."

Good People -RM, New York

"The installation went well, you have very good people throughout [your] company."

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."

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."

Keeping LRAA Below MCL –DW, Nevada

"The system is performing very well and each quarter's results seem to be reduced or stayed low. All keeping the Locational Running Annual Average (LRAA) below the MCL. Thanks for all your help."

Wish All Vendors Were Like SolarBee –SP, California

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

Wonderful & Efficient- GT, Alaska

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