Did Not Cut Corners –LT, Arizona

"Just would like to say that your field service techs did all the work that they were supposed to and did not cut any corners.

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."

Reduced Organics & THMs –KJ, California

"We are very happy with all of the SolarBee equipment in the raw water reservoir and in our potable tanks. The mixing has helped reduce organics in the reservoir and helped to reduce THMs in the tanks." There were more than 11 different installations in the water system for this community.

Well Mixed & No Nitrification –MO, California

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

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."

Very Helpful –DR, Illinois

"We are very happy with the service since the SolarBee installation. They will stop to check your units anytime they are in your area. They did upgrades at no cost, and have been very helpful in moving the units when needed to get better results. We have budgeted for a SolarBee for our elevated tower."

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."

Great Crew! –LP, Utah

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

Thanks! –SE, Florida

"Thanks! You guys do fantastic service trips!"

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."

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."

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."

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. "

HUGE Improvement In Water –TA, Illinois

"The newer GridBee unit is up and running and is making a HUGE improvement in our water! Thanks for all of your help."

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."

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."

8-10 ft. Secchi Depths –JH, Oregon

"Our Secchi depths are ranging 8-10 ft. We are happy 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. "

Wonderful Service & Support –DH, Louisiana

"SolarBee has provided wonderful service and support. We are grateful for the opportunity to work with such professionals."

$5,000 - $6,000 Savings –DB, New York

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

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."

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!"

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."

Friendly Crew –TR, Kansas

"Wanted to let you know that all the guys that did the installation were the friendliest and most knowledgeable group of guys that we've been around. Wish everyone we worked with was that easy to get along with."

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."

Extremely Professional –AG, Texas

"I wanted to start off by saying how impressed we were with everyone involved with the installation and start up of the units. The entire staff that we dealt with were extremely professional and provided us with a great deal of information on the units. Please pass that on to everyone involved."

No Ice In The Tank –NW, Illinois

"The operator reported last night that within a couple of days there was a 15-foot open water space above the mixer and that as of yesterday there was no ice in the tank. The mixer definitely did its job."

Fabulous Customer Service –RS, Oregon

"Fabulous customer service in all respects working with you folks."

No Nitrification Events –JM, California

"We have had not had nitrification events since installing the SolarBee in our large 11 MG above ground steel tank. We have not even had to do any boosting, which we used to have to do before frequently."

Compliance In A Month –FJ, Louisiana

The new float system for the sprayer is much appreciated along with the time and effort put into the transfer of the control box for the mixer. Please let the crew know that I appreciate their work. Many thanks to the folks at Solar Bee!"

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."

Never Looked Better! –KW, New Jersey

"SolarBee provided excellent service during the past two years. Our pond has never looked better!"

These units don't miss a beat! -PK, Vermont

“We reduced our aerators from 17 to nine and are thinking about getting another circulator for our third lagoon. We’ve had very good success, and they are very low-maintenance. Even during the winter, these units don’t miss a beat.”

Met Expectations –MM, California

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

Fishing Has Been Great! –HB, Michigan

"We are very happy on how the lake looks this spring. A lot of people have made comments that the ice fishing this past winter has been great. Best it's been in several years!"

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!"

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."

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."

Complete Mixing –JM, California

"We have found that we have complete mixing inside the tank after approximately 36 hours. That is with the reservoir filled to 20 feet which equates to 7.4 million gallons of water. We are very happy with the SolarBee results."

Happy With SolarBee –JD, West Virginia

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

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

Happy To Be A Reference –GC, Arkansas

" If you ever want to use us as a reference, I would be happy to talk with anyone of our customers. 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!"

Never Been More Clear –DE, Alberta Canada

"We were just out at the Lake and it has not ever been more clear. We can see the bottom at the end of the dock. In the past few years it has gone a little cloudy by now. I am very excited about this. .....it is all the result of the SolarBees and the addition of the 2nd SolarBee this year has definitely had a positive impact. Thanks again for your ongoing help and support."

Great Crew! –AZ, New Jersey

"Your crew was a great...very professional!"

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."

Fast Response –MC, California

Totally Resolved Problems –DC, Minnesota

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."

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."

60% Energy Savings –DS, Pennsylvania

"The SolarBee has controlled the blue green algae. It has been an easy decision to add a second unit for hypolimnetic aeration."

Dramatically Improved Clarity –WT, California

"In the ponds where SolarBees have been installed the water clarity has improved dramatically. We can now see 3-4 feet in depth and have experienced no odors. Evaporation rates have been enhanced dramatically as well."

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."

Excellent Odor Cap –MF, California

"The SolarBees are still maintaining an excellent odor cap on our oily waste water pond. Due to their maintenance free and power free operation it's like they are not even there. They take care of themselves. We are very pleased with their performance."

Ponds Working Better Than Ever –MS, California

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 Purchase –RN, California

"SolarBees are one of our best purchases in the past 20 years!"

Chlorine Usage Dropped 50% –RN,California

"The amount of chlorine usage for the recycled water tanks dropped 50% after the installation of the SolarBees."

More Zooplankton –DB, California

"Excellent! I am seeing more zooplankton than ever before. In the past we have had clear water this time of year - but it was due to a blue algae die off and the fish were skinny. There was no zooplankton - very unhealthy. We would also be subject to severe filament algae blooms. This does not occur anymore - we have clean water that is healthy and the fish are flourishing!"

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!"

We Appreciate It! -AW, Arizona

"Thank you very much for the quick response. You guys are quick & easy to work with and we appreciate it!"

Solved Problems –RL, California

"SolarBees have solved our dimethyl mercury problem."

Working Great! –JG, California

Great Products! -JH, Idaho

"Great products and installation was a breeze."

Algae Reduced 50% –JS, California

"This summer the filamentous algae in our 1.3 acre, raw water storage pond was reduced to 50% surface coverage. Before the SB1250V12 was installed, the filamentous algae would normally cover about 75% of our pond's surface during peak summer months."

SolarBee Saved Us -VG, Texas

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

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!"

Flawless Operation -LR, Arizona

"[The potable tank] Mixer is operating flawlessly."

Cleanest & Best Looking Water –DB, California

"I stopped by the lake yesterday and went around the whole lake looking and some fishing - mostly looking.
