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."

Pretty Incredible –RL, California

Excellent Service & Product –JB, California

"We have not had any nitrification events with the SolarBees in this reservoir. Your service and product are excellent."

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!"

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."

Greatly Improved Water Quality –EJ, Florida

"The lake water quality is greatly improved since the installation of the SolarBee. There are less algal blooms, and water stratification. The secchi readings are the greatly improved since the SolarBee installation. We are very happy with the performance of the SolarBee.'

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."

Reduced THMs By 50% –RS, Colorado

"Our THM’s are 50% of what they were prior to the SolarBee installation. We have not had any ice issues and there are other improvements."

Can't Beat SolarBee –PG, California

"You just can't beat a SolarBee! We are definitely part of the fan club."

Highly Professional Crew –BE, Oregon

"The SolarBee crew was highly professional and very proficient with safety issues. We have learned a lot about safety issues that they incorporated into their practices."

Unmatched Dedication –JH, Louisiana

"We haven't had a recurrence of hypertrophy since installation! The dedication to your product, and more importantly your customers, is absolutely unmatched by any service provider that I have dealt with in my professional career."

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."

First Class Company –DR, Ohio

"I must tell you that your company is first class in the way you handle the customers, including the service guys. ALL of them are very responsive and polite and they seem to take their work very seriously!"

Greatly Improved –JC, Arkansas

"Water quality has greatly improved! We are very happy with the SolarBee unit in our tank. We also have SolarBees in our reservoir and the water quality is better than is has been in a long time."

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."

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."

Amazing Team -GH, California

"The team that came out to support us were amazing, extremely professional, very knowledgeable, and really expedient."

What A Difference –SH, California

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

No Algae –MD, Washington

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!"

Best Safety Procedures –RQ, Nevada

No Issues –RC, Oregon

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

Many Thanks –RR, Nevada

"As I mentioned over the telephone today, I want to thank you for the work completed by your crew at our water treatment plant storage tank. 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!"

Great Crew! –AZ, New Jersey

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

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."

Improvements Across The Board –HR, California

Thanks For Checking –SM, Illinois

Best Water In 12 Years! –VK, Oregon

"The Solar Bees must be working! This is the best the water has looked since I started working here, and that's about 12 years."

Decreased Chemical Usage –JB, Texas

"Our staff is very pleased with the performance of this system, especially with the overall decrease in chemical usage at both the reservoir and Plant #1. The SolarBee will pay for itself in roughly 2-3 years!" We've completely gotten away from using copper sulfate at the reservoir, and we've also noticed a gradual decrease in the amount of chemicals we've needed to use at our Plant #1." I just wanted to let you know how happy we are with our SolarBee that you set up at our raw water reservoir."

No Compliance Problems –MM, Indiana

"We are very happy with the SolarBees in our wastewater system. There have been no compliance problems since the SolarBees have been installed."

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."

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

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. "

Thank You! –LK, Arizona

Huge Difference Within 24 Hours –BC, Montana

"We noticed a reduction in odor while the crew was still on site and a huge difference within 24 hours. The golf course is also rid of the nasty smell that had plagued them after irrigation. It is a huge relief for them."

Water Quality Is Great –VS, California

"We love our SolarBees! The copper sulfate we bought is just rotting away sitting on the pallets. Water quality is great!"

Thank You! –BH, Colorado

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

Keeping Ice Off –BK, Arkansas

"The GS-12 is doing a great job keeping the ice off our 420,000 gallon tank."

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."

No Nitrification Problems –DO, California

"The SolarBees are working great in our chloramine system. Since the SolarBees were installed we have not had any nitrification problems."

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."

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."

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."

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."

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."

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."

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."

A Considerable Difference –JS, Texas

"We have not used the Fast Response Boost System yet, and haven't need to, but the SolarBee SB1250PW v18 is working great! We have noticed a considerable difference. We are not experiencing any problems at all, compared to last year."

Tested SolarBee Thouroughly –GC, California

"We like the way the SolarBee is working as far as results go. We have tested the SolarBee thoroughly for about two months and find that it is working as as you predicted it would."

No Chemical Application –VS, California

"We are very happy with the SolarBees. They definitely are doing their job; we have not had to apply any chemicals to the lake since the installation of the SolarBees."

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."

OUTSTANDING Customer Service –VK, California

"Your staff and company has earned a HUGE GOLD STAR from our community and me for the OUTSTANDING customer service that you have provided to us. To me it feels like you think our community is your number ONE customer."

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."

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."

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!"

Never Looked Better! –KW, New Jersey

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

Chlorine Usage Dropped 50% –RN,California

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

Good DO –JH, Louisiana

$5,000 - $6,000 Savings –DB, New York

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

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."

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."

Professional & Knowledgeable Crew –DS, Pennsylvania

"The SolarBee crew was very professional, well prepared, and very knowledgeable."

Love SolarBee –SL, California

"We LOVE our SolarBee!!"

Great Crew –MD, Washington

"Thanks for sending a crew to fix our problems. They did a great job. Everything has been fixed and we appreciate their efforts. They weren't going to quit until they got it done. At a time when we are normally starting to show algae, there virtually has been none. We've had the SolarBee units for a year and a half and have experienced no algae. Your customer service has been great. Your crew did a great job."

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 !"

Very Pleased With SolarBees –NS, Florida

No Shoreline Slime –JJ, Georgia

"We are very happy with the SolarBees. There is no green slime along the shoreline. This is a major difference that we attribute entirely to the SolarBees. We would gladly serve as a positive reference for SolarBee."

Wonderful Service & Support –DH, Louisiana

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

Best Purchase Ever –RS, Michigan

Impressive Professionalism –TB, Tennessee

"We were very impressed and enjoyed being able to view the installation first hand. I wanted to send my appreciation to your installation crew who were on site during the installation. They were good representatives for your company. Their professionalism on site was impressive."

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."

One Of Our Best Investments –JW, New Hampshire

"As of July 2014, 8 years after installation, our unit has not cost us anything to repair or maintain. The unit has even been struck by lightning several times and came back online after being reset. The SolarBee unit has been one of the best investments our utility has ever made."
