Comments

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."

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!"

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."

Great Results! –JL, Georgia

"We performed a temperature profile 3 weeks after the installation of the SolarBee. The water temperature difference was one tenth of a degree Celsius throughout entire tank (24.1 degree C top, 24.0 degree C bottom). Great results."

Water Clarity Has Been Great –SD, California

"I am sure you can tell from our reports that our water clarity has been great this year. We all really appreciated the nice work of your SolarBee Service Technicians when they were here servicing our units back in January. Their efforts are really paying off for us."

$5,000 - $6,000 Savings –DB, New York

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

Great Crew! –LP, Utah

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

Solved Problems –RL, California

"SolarBees have solved our dimethyl mercury problem."

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."

Best Water –DE, Alberta Canada

"The water is the best it has been since we installed the SolarBee!"

Extremely Pleased –HR, California

"It's good to hear from SolarBee. The SolarBee in our lake has been great and we are extremely pleased with its performance and we shared this with our board of directors."

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."

Great Crew! –AZ, New Jersey

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

Impressed With Service Level –PW, Ohio

An Exceptional Job –JZ, Wyoming

"Thanks for getting Steve back up here to fix our glitches. He is great to work with and did an exceptional job! Please pass that on to the powers that be!"

Excellent Odor Cap –MF, California

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."

Reduced Cyanobacteria Counts –BC, Massachusetts

"The latest Secchi disk readings from yesterday varied from 1.2 - 1.4 meters, or about 4-5 feet. Prior readings showing water clarity were rarely greater than one ft.

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."

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."

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.

We Are Tickled Pink –MO, California

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."
