We had the good fortune of connecting with Steve Berens and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Steve, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
Technologies help make our lives safer, easier and more enjoyable, and pool and spa water care is no exception to that. We used to consider red eyes, irritated skin and toxic chemical handling as the price you had to pay to own a pool. But with Clear Comfort, homeowners don’t have to sacrifice their time or health to enjoy their pool or spa. Our brand is focused on helping homeowners experience the healthiest, freshest-feeling and easiest pool water with the least amount of chlorine possible. We make it possible to achieve drinking-water chemical levels in your pool. Our company motto is “Swim Happy™” and it’s what drives us every day.
What should our readers know about your business?
Growing up, I helped maintain our swimming pool and I always dreaded the chemical-induced smell and burning sensation in my eyes and nose. The pool and spa industry has relied on toxic chemicals for over 100 years, and there hasn’t been a chlorine-alternative that has stood the test of time. When I started Clear Comfort, I knew we could bring healthier, cleaner and more enjoyable swimming to people. It is one of the reasons why our motto is Swim Happy. Our technology was initially a proven-solution for industrial water treatment applications, so we saw an opportunity to deliver a healthier, easier and effective way to treat pool and spa water.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
One of my favorite parts of visiting Dallas is getting to spend time with our head of residential customer success. Louie Warco lives in Plano and has been a key member of our team from our earliest days. I particularly like the great food all over the Dallas Metroplex. My goal is to one day get Louie to enjoy sushi as much as I do. I won’t hold my breath on that one.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
At Clear Comfort we get to share people’s lives at a personal level. We get to hear their stories about times they enjoy being together with family and friends. Swimming is a great connector. We especially enjoy the opportunities to give back. We launched Clear Comfort Cares to help non-profits deliver swimming programs with healthier, safer water. It is our hope that organizations like YMCAs, JCCs and Rec Centers can inspire more people to connect through swimming.
