July is National Park and Recreation Month, a time to recognize the role that parks and recreation professionals have in making their communities better places to live, work and play. More than ever, communities need their parks and rec centers to stay active and healthy. In search of safer and easier solutions, a growing number of parks and rec professionals have switched to Clear Comfort’s Advanced Oxidation (AOP) pool and spa treatment – and the results speak for themselves.
Why are recreation centers loving Clear Comfort?
1. Patrons’ Peace of Mind
As we enter a more health-conscious era, it is more important than ever to ensure that patrons feel protected. The best way to show patrons that they are safe is to take actionable measures to protect their health, such as upgrading water care and sanitation practices. Clear Comfort’s patented AOP creates more hydroxyl radicals than any other AOP method. These radicals are highly reactive, short-lived and the most powerful oxidative compounds available for recreational water treatment.
Additionally, Clear Comfort’s AOP is proven to reduce 99.99 percent (4-log) of Cryptosporidium, a chlorine-resistant parasite that can result in patrons falling ill, shutdowns, multi-million dollar lawsuits and a damaged facility reputation. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Crypto is one of the most common causes of recreational water illness (RWI) in the United States.
2. The Time Saved on Maintenance
In between coordinating swimming programs, training staff and forecasting budgets, aquatics operators simply don’t have the extra time to spend on pool and spa maintenance. With Clear Comfort’s AOP, the only system maintenance required is an annual Cartridge exchange that takes under 15 minutes and doesn’t require professional training, special tools or annual downtime. Alternatively, UV pool systems can require hours of complicated lamp maintenance that a professional service technician will need to perform.
3. Lower Chemical Costs
By reducing chemical consumption, electrical consumption and maintenance costs, Clear Comfort provides powerful and safe water treatment that is also cost-effective for commercial facilities. Replacing UV systems with Clear Comfort can save facilities thousands of dollars a year, which makes the system pay for itself over time.
4. The Healthier, Fresher Air Quality
Patrons have never been more conscious of how their environments impact their health. There’s a common misconception that the “pool odor” comes from chlorine – when in fact – it’s chloramines, the disinfection by-product (DBP) of chlorine reacting to organic material like sweat, skin oils and urea. By reducing DBPs and chemical use, Clear Comfort’s AOP has made indoor aquatic facilities’ air quality more fresh, healthy and enjoyable for patrons and staff.
In addition, improving indoor aquatic facility air quality can allow operators to save money on electrical consumption and supplied fresh air.
5. It Takes 1 Hour or Less to Install
With a one-hour or less installation with minimal downtime, Clear Comfort’s already easy-to-use AOP systems are even easier to implement. Designed for simplicity, the Inline or Surge Pit Diffuser Installation Kits can fit in the tightest spaces with modest electrical requirements. These one-hour installation kits bring a simple and cost-effective way for all types of aquatics facilities to improve water quality and ease management.
6. The Crystal Clear Water Quality
Clear Comfort’s AOP technology oxidizes pool and spa water and breaks down pollutants so they can be more easily filtered out – making the water cleaner and crystal clear. By producing high concentrations of hydroxyl radicals, Clear Comfort’s AOP eliminates contaminants in the pool water that are the cause of cloudiness.
7. The Customer Success Team
So aquatic operators can spend more time improving their patrons’ experiences, Clear Comfort has a dedicated customer support team of AOP experts to help with installation, maintenance, water care and more. With Clear Comfort, aquatic operators can talk to a real person and get their questions answered.
8. The Industry-Leading Product Protection
We believe in the quality of our award-winning products, which why is our commercial AOP pool systems come with an industry-leading system warranty and money-back guarantee. With Clear Comfort’s AOP pool treatment, aquatic facilities are protected with a 5-Year System Warranty and a 90-Day Money-Back Guarantee.
9. It’s Environmentally Friendly
By reducing chemical use and energy consumption, Clear Comfort’s AOP offers a more sustainable pool treatment solution than traditional methods. Chlorine production is a major contributor to global carbon emissions and UV pool systems consume high amounts of electrical energy, making Clear Comfort’s AOP the eco-friendly pool water treatment choice.
10. Lower Energy Costs
Additionally, Clear Comfort saves 80 to 95 percent on electrical consumption compared to most UV systems. This can save facilities thousands of dollars a year on electrical costs and may even allow facilities to qualify for grant money that would cover the entire cost of the system.
With so many recreation centers, athletic clubs, universities, YMCAs, JCCs and other aquatic facilities transitioning to Clear Comfort’s AOP, there is a shift toward a modern approach to pool water treatment.
