Amazing To Look At –MY, New York

Regarding SolarBee's impact on biofilm on the tank interior: "The tank is empty now and they are cleaning as we speak. The sides of the tank are very clean and we are down to about 1/2 to 1 inch of debris in the bottom. It is amazing to look at what is in the tank now, compared to what was there pre-SolarBee. "

Thank You! –LK, Arizona

"Thank you! It's always a pleasure dealing with your company. I wish more were like you guys."

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."

Consistent Water Quality –SG, Iowa

"The water quality is more consistent with the turbidity dropping from 20 NTUs to 7-10 NTUs. We have not had to add copper sulfate. This is the latest we has gone without starting copper treatments."

No Algae Or MN Issues –VS, California

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

Solved Problems –RL, California

"SolarBees have solved our dimethyl mercury problem."

Happy With SolarBee –SA, California

"We have not had to add chemicals in our reservoir in three years. We are happy with the SolarBee performance."

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."

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."

Reduced Macrophytes –DI, Alberta Canada

"The macrophytes in this lake have been greatly reduced since the installation of the SolarBee!"

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."

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."

100% Satisfied –A, West Virginia

"We are completely, 100% satisfied with your service and are impressed how your company went the extra mile!"

Saved Thousands –PR, Michigan

"The reservoir has very good clarity. Since the Solarbees have been installed in the system we do not have to move water through the system in order to keep the water quality high. This has saved thousands of dollars a month in the spring, summer and fall. "

Doing A Great Job! –RL, Montana

"The Solarbees are doing a great job! The lake is clear and has tested very well."

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."

Very Satisfied –KK, California

"The SolarBee continues to do its job. The water quality people are quite pleased that it has been able to maintain the residual and lack of problems with water quality. I think you could say, yes I am very satisfied."

We Rely On SolarBees –W, Colorado

"We really rely on those SolarBees... water quality this summer has been very good."

Built Too Well! –DM, North Carolina

"These Solarbee units just run. You built them too well!"

Haven't Had To Boost –TC, California

"We have not had to boost since the installation! In the past we have had to boost every 1-2 weeks."

Thanks For A Smooth Install –SD, Virginia

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."

Happy With SolarBee –KH, Illinois

"As local residents we would like to comment on the good water quality. We are happy with the SolarBee performance."

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."

100% Satisfied –AC, West Virgina

"We are 100% satisfied with the service provided by SolarBee and are impressed with how they went the extra mile."

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. "

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."

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."

Amazing Results –AH, New Hampshire

"We have seen amazing results in operation, process, and energy savings. We certainly do support the Beekeeper."

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."

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 !"

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."

No Algae –MD, Washington

"We've had the units for a year and a half and no algae. Your customer service has been great. Your crew did a great job!"

Informative Crew –SC, California

"The SolarBee's are working great. The installation crew was informative and did the installation with precision. Your safety controls are excellent."

Increased Oxygen & Less Odor –JS, Colorado

"We love what our SolarBees have done to the lake! The oxygen levels have increased substantially, and the odors are mostly gone."

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."

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!"

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."

Very Happy –DM, California

"We are very happy with the performance of the SolarBee in our tank. We would be happy to serve as a positive reference for both SolarBee performance and service."

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!"

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."

Working With Customers Builds Relationships –JP, North Carolina

"I appreciate the way Medora works with customers. I have previously worked in sales and marketing with XXXXXXXX, and they were not this smart. Your company recognizes that working with customers builds long term customer relationships. If we get this working, we would be willing to put a paper/presentation together about it for WEF or Watereuse Association."

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.

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."

A Great Investment –PJ, California

"We love the SolarBees. It is the best investment that we have ever made!"

Very Impressed –CV, Tennessee

"We attended the SolarBee installation and were very impressed. We enjoyed being able to view the installation first hand. We appreciated the SolarBee employees who were on hand during the installation. They were very helpful and good representatives of SolarBee. Their professionalism on site was impressive and we cannot thank them enough for making our experience a pleasurable one."

Impressed With Results –RY, MA.
