"We really like the SolarBee's, and they are meeting the objectives for which they were installed."

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."

Glowing Report -MS, Vermont

"While in VT yesterday I stopped in at the plant see how things were going. He speaks glowingly about his Medora Corp GridBee lagoon circulators and wants to be a reference for us, any time."

Over 30 SolarBees –MH, California

"Our system consists of some 37 SolarBee installations. We have had no nitrification events this season. This hugely important! It is primarily due to frequent monitoring, mixing and boosting when necessary."

Freshest Water –GD, California

"SolarBee's in our lakes and water tanks puts the freshest water in our glasses."

Solving Our Problems –MM, Indiana

"The SolarBee's are solving our problems. Ammonia and BOD levels are good."

Wonderful & Efficient- GT, Alaska

The Crew Is Unmatched –TC, Pennsylvania

"The Crew's attitude toward their job, your product and your company is unmatched. The whole operation from start to finish was professional, educational, and fun. It is very rare to find all those ingredients all on the same project."

Lake Looks Great –DG, California

"The lake at The Park looks great. We really appreciated all of the effort that SolarBee has put into the Park. We wish that all of our vendors were like SolarBee."

Saved $20,000 In Chemical Costs –KW, Colorado

"The SolarBees have saved our facility $200,000 in chemical costs per year since the their installation! Everything is working properly."

Great Crew! –LP, Utah

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

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."

Thank You! –BH, Colorado

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

SolarBee Saved Us -VG, Texas

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

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!"

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."

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."

Appreciat Customer Service –JC, Illinois

"We really appreciate your customer service!"

No Copper Sulfate Since SolarBee –VL, New York

"We used to use "tons" of copper sulfate in treatment and now we do not use any. Actually, we have not used any copper sulfate since the SolarBee's were installed."

Thanks To The Crew –SP, Florida

"Thanks to the crew. We are very pleased with the pond. All chemical treatment was stopped just before the machine was installed and it looks great. There is growing awareness here about the problem of copper accumulation from BGA treatment and someday the SolarBees may get their due here."

Dramatic Decrease -PD, Massachusetts

“So far the three units (GridBee® AP500 Wet Well Mixers) we have installed are working great, we have seen a dramatic decrease in alarm calls due to grease or debris buildup on floats or other pump controls.”

Thanks for a great job! -SD, California

"I am writing to say thanks very much to you and your team of SolarBee Service Technicians for doing a great job... Everyone who loves our lake greatly appreciates your team's successful efforts!"

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."

Surprised & Amazed -CJ, Minnesota

"To say I am surprised that there was no ice in the three tanks would be an understatement. And the fact we removed virtually all the ice from an iced over tank in three days of running is amazing."

NO Odor –JT,Michigan

"We have NO odor and very little sludge or slurry. We are happy with our Solarbees!"

Fantastic! -GT, Alaska

"The SolarBee in our lake worked fantastically. It is a well designed and engineered machine."

Working As Advertised –MC, Washington

"We installed the GS-9 ourselves in 1 hour. Very complete kit and great instructions! The mixers are working as advertised!"

Improvements Are Substantial –ES, Colorado

"The reservoir improvements are substantial, no blue-green blooms last year, clarity improved dramatically and overall water quality greatly improved."

Amazing Results –AH, New Hampshire

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

Friendly & Knowledgeable Crew –TB, Kansas

"The SolarBee crew that performed the installation were the friendliest and most knowledgeable group of guys I've been around."

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!"

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

Reduced Organics & THMs –KJ, California

Improved Water In 3 Hours –FW, New York

"Just three hours after installation, we saw improvement in our water."

Extra Steps To Make Customers Happy –LC, New Hampshire

"We have never had a crew onsite that are the caliber of these men. They are not only professional but take extra steps to make sure the customer is happy. They have great attitudes, work ethic and politeness."

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. "

Professional & Knowledgeable Crew –DS, Pennsylvania

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

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!"

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."

Your customer service has been great. Your crew did a great job."

Lake Looks Great –HB, Michigan

Huge Difference Within 24 Hours –BC, Montana

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."

Increased Water Clarity –SH, California

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."

Everything Is Functioning Properly –JO, Oregon

"Our GS-12 submersible mixer installation went very smoothly. Everything is functioning properly and we are very happy with the installation."

Very Reliable & Met Objectives –DC, Colorado

Increased Oxygen & Less Odor –JS, Colorado

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."

High Quality Staff & Great Results –JR, Oregon

"We continue to rave about the high quality professional staff of SolarBee during the installation process, the performance achieved by the unit, and the great results from the modeling output showing the degree of mixing achieved with the unit. We plan to use those figures to convince the department to proceed with additional installations in our 17 PW tanks."

Pretty Incredible –RL, California

"The ponds are doing very well. None of the ponds have gone sour since the SolarBees were installed, which is pretty incredible!"

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.”

Love SolarBee –SL, California

"We LOVE our SolarBee!!"

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."

Professional & Knowledgeable Crew –CD, Louisiana

"Gentlemen, On behalf of our community, I am writing to express our appreciation to Medora for the recent completion of improvements to the town’s water system. The crew sent to do the work was very professional and knowledgeable in working to promptly complete the project. Again, we thank you for your services." Mayor Pro Tem

Chlorine Usage Dropped 50% –RN,California

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

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."

Ponds Working Better Than Ever –MS, California

"The system is working great/purring along. We are very happy with the sludge reduction, and we are also seeing the DO continue to come up in the ponds. The ponds appear to be working better than they ever have."

Cleared Water In One Season –SD, Alberta Canada

"We are absolutely amazed how the SolarBee has cleared up the water in just one season. We have never had such good, clear, odor free water!"

Dramatically Improved Clarity –WT, California

Gold Stars Around –KN, Oregon

"The SolarBee has been running great even during these darkest days of the year. We would give SolarBee 'gold stars around.' We are particularly happy with the service we have received over the years, and would be more than happy to share our positive experience with SolarBee."

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."

Best Water Color –JD, West Virginia

"It is the best water color I have ever seen in all my years as an operator. DO is ranging from 11.O to 16.0 mg/l in all cells. We think the SolarBees will save us about $10,000 per year in electrical bills."

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."

Good DO –JH, Louisiana

"Last year we went out a few times during the heat of the summer and found good DO and other parameters to the exact depths that the SolarBee intake was set to, and we haven't had a recurrence of hypertrophy since installation. Proof enough!"

Positive Impacts –PH, California

"We are very pleased with SolarBees and their positive impacts on our water system storage facilities. We are very happy with your service."
