For the best sales and support assistance possible, please have the following information ready:
  1. Your pool’s gallon size
  2. Your gallons per minute (GPM)
  3. What you are currently using to maintain your pool
  4. Your pump type
Yes, Clear Comfort’s AOP pool and spa systems are compatible with all major filters, pumps, heaters, chemical feeders, chemical systems and more.
No, the Clear Comfort system can be used in a variety of different climates. 
Unlike traditional treatment methods, Clear Comfort air-injects its sanitizer into your pool plumbing. The tiny bubbles are indications that the non-toxic hydroxyl radicals have oxidized unwanted contaminants in your pool plumbing, so you can enjoy the best water and air quality possible.  Take a look at our video to see these bubbles on real-life Clear Comfort pools and spas. Please note: Bubble sizes can vary on different types of pool plumbing.

Water Care #

By reducing chemical handling, Clear Comfort will simplify your regular pool and/or spa maintenance. The only system maintenance required with Clear Comfort is an annual 5-minute cartridge exchange and standard weekly chemical balancing.
Our Quick Guide: Basic Water Care can help you understand how to maintain your water with your Clear Comfort system. If you have additional questions, please feel free to reach out to our Customer Success team:
Yes. Shocking your pool is a common pool practice necessary to achieve maximum oxidation potential and maintain healthy pool water. 
The Clear Comfort system can help you address and eliminate biofilm. For added protection against biofilm, we recommend purge products, superchlorination and scrub-brushing to eradicate it.
While the Clear Comfort system does not use or produce traditional pool chemicals, we do recommend balancing your pool water by the fundamental industry standards. Maintaining proper chemistry levels will help protect your swimming pool vessel and allow any and all types of sanitizers, disinfectants and oxidizers to be effective.

No, the Clear Comfort system does not affect pH in the pool water. pH levels can rise from water features that are exposed to the ambient air, deck sprays, water falls, sheer descents, bubblers, etc.

Stringy particles on top of the pool water can be caused by biguanides which we do not recommend using. AOP is not compatible with Polyhexamethylene Biguanide (PHMB).

Set Up & Installation #

Installing your Clear Comfort system is a simple process that can be performed by any professional. This process can be performed in 1 hour or less on most pools.  If you have any installation questions or need help finding a local installer, please reach out to our dedicated Customer Success team:
For proper airflow, we recommend using a variable speed pump and setting it between 2200 – 2400 RPM and running the Clear Comfort system 24/7 for constant disinfection. If you’re using a DE Filter, let it rest for 1 hour every day.
Your Air Flow Meter will help you set up the required litres per minute (LPM) to your Clear Comfort system. Please keep your included Air Flow Meter with your Clear Comfort system.  For step-by-step instructions on how to use your Air Flow Meter, please watch our video here.
