Solved Problems –RL, California

"SolarBees have solved our dimethyl mercury problem."

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."

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."

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."

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."

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."

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.

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."

Well Mixed Tanks –CB, California

"The SolarBees do an excellent job and the tanks are very well mixed. They test uniformly throughout the reservoirs."

Fabulous Customer Service –RS, Oregon

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

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."

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."

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!"

Reduced Macrophytes –DI, Alberta Canada

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

BeeKeeper, A Great Deal –DG, New Hampshire

"We really like our SolarBee, your company and the BeeKeeper (maintenance and service plan). The BeeKeeper costs $8k per year and is saving $120k per year on power. This is a great deal! We used to pay more than $8k per year maintaining blowers. We have not run our blowers for several years."

Project Success! –AP, Ohio

"We are very pleased with the THM test results to date along with the operation of the SolarBee system. We have attached sheets that includes all THM testing to date. We are extremely happy with the test results for the 3rd quarter. I am now convinced we have a system that will help the village comply with Stage 2 THM rules. Thanks to all that made this project a success!"

Consistent Levels Of CL Residual –SC, Michigan

“The levels of chlorine residual have become more consistent after installing the GS-12 mixer. I was having differing chlorine residuals before I started mixing, but now it’s been even out in the system. One sample I pull from a dead end has maintained a real even residual.”

Grateful To Work With Professionals –JH, Louisianna

"SolarBee has provided wonderful service and support and we are grateful to work with such professionals."

Doing A Great Job! –RL, Montana

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

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."

Wish All Vendors Were Like SolarBee –SP, California

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

The Crew Works Hard –MV, New Mexico

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."

Greatly Improved –PV, Arkansas

"The SolarBee's have definitely reduced the blue green algae in the lake. We are using less carbon since the SolarBees where installed. The lake is greatly improved."

Great Team -JW, Nevada

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. "

"Installation yesterday went great. We were very impressed with the SolarBee employees during the installation."

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. "

VERY Pleased –MH, Montana

"We are VERY pleased with the SolarBee performance at our reservoir! The secchi depth is about 18 ft. and the algae count is way down."

Thanks To The Crew –SP, Florida
