Hi Steve, thank you so much for sitting down with us again. For folks who might have missed our initial interview, can you start by briefly introducing yourself?
My name is Steve Berens, the CEO and Co-Founder of Clear Comfort, and we make chlorine-alternative AOP pool and hot tub systems that deliver the easiest way to get the best, healthiest and freshest water.
Clear Comfort’s AOP is improving water care in homes, universities, water parks, professional sports teams, YMCAs, and more in Dallas and nationwide.
Can you give us a quick reminder of your background and how that led you to Clear Comfort?
Growing up, I spent my summers in our backyard pool. And back then, red eyes, itchy skin and chemical smell was the price you had to pay. When I first came across Clear Comfort’s AOP technology, it was patented and being used for industrial water treatment. We are using our market-leading patented AOP treatment systems to help home pool owners achieve drinking-water chlorine levels. It is entirely about enjoying your pool again.
Many homeowners are concerned about the pool industry’s current chemical shortage, could you give us a quick explanation of how that came about?
Yes, in August 2020, the largest U.S. chlorine tab plant caught fire after it was hit by two hurricanes. As a result, traditional trichlor tabs are in very short supply. Pool owners are now having to find new ways to keep their water clean and sanitized. This has created an opportunity to actually improve their water treatment. Systems, like Clear Comfort’s AOP, are leading the way to better, more reliable water treatment that is not impacted by shortages.
With a Clear Comfort AOP pool system, how low can you get the chlorine levels?
With our system, home pool owners have reduced their chlorine levels down to drinking-water chlorine levels or less. Many of our customers say it feels like swimming in a fresh shower.
How does Clear Comfort’s AOP pool sanitation stand out from the crowd?
My personal favorite thing about our system is how easy it is to use. We want to help people spend more time in their pool and less time maintaining it. And growing up, I was the one who had to take care of our backyard pool, so I know dealing with the chemicals handling and dosing can just be a nightmare. Prior to Clear Comfort, more antiquated attempts required significant maintenance with limited results. These systems are normally a combination of two components including UV and ozone. Clear Comfort direct AOP injection, the only system maintenance needed is an annual 5-minute cartridge exchange, while delivering superior results.
And if our readers are looking for a healthier way to treat their pool during chlorine shortages, how can they get a Clear Comfort AOP system?
