Steve Porter, editor of InnovatioNews, interviews Clear Comfort CEO Steve Berens about the market opportunity he sees for his company as it launches into the residential and commercial pool space.
The New York State Court of Claims has granted preliminary approval of a proposed $5 million settlement of a class action lawsuit filed over a Cryptosporidium outbreak in a state water park. Until now, no technology has presented the ideal solution. Ozone and UV systems are expensive and still require high levels of chlorine for residual kill, while salt systems cause corrosion and don’t kill crypto.
Clear Comfort, a Boulder-based startup providing a patented advanced oxidation technology to the pool industry, today announced it was awarded the Advanced Industries (AI) Accelerator Programs Grant by the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade (OEDIT). The Early Stage Capital and Retention Grant, in the amount of $250,000, will enable Clear Comfort to bring its product to more markets across the nation more quickly.
Clear Comfort CEO Steve Berens is featured in The Water Values podcast, where he discusses the Clear Comfort’s innovative pool water treatment technology.
