Coastal Pure installed the first 100% DHEC compliant commercial Copper/Silver Ionization System at the Greenbriar Community of Barefoot Resort in North Myrtle Beach in 2009. Together, Charlie and Anita grew Coastal Pure into the full-service commercial pool management company it is today.

Why Coastal Pure?
Coastal Pure is a local, family and woman-owned company born out of necessity to create a healthy pool experience that saves people money and is environmentally sustainable. It began as a backyard hobby and quickly became a business. As experts in water chemistry, Anita and Charlie enjoy providing HOA communities, residential homes and commercial properties with healthy, sustainable and beautiful pools while also saving hundreds and thousands of dollars in chemical and maintenance costs.
Coastal Pure's mission is to provide HOA communities with exceptionally clean and healthy pool water that is free of bacteria and algae, without using high levels of costly chemicals. This method is better for the wallet, better for the swimmers’ health, and better for the environment.
Coastal Pure slashes chemical operating budgets by 60-70% year after year.
Coastal Pure raises the bar in commercial pool care by offering long-term, cost effective solutions by introducing DHEC compliant, affordable, NASA developed technology that's a less-chemical approach to clean, healthy recreational pool water.
We only partner with the best in water treatment systems and technology solutions. Based in South Carolina, Caribbean Clear® is one of the only suppliers of the Copper/Silver Ionization System. They have been pioneers in water treatment since 1982, when they combined NASA's ionization silver delivery technology with copper in a scientifically proven ratio suited for the needs of addressing swimming pool water.
Copper is the most powerful natural algaecide on the planet. It is used in ponds, reservoirs, and by water treatment plants. While early pools benefited too, copper was largely forgotten as chlorine quickly became a cure-all, when it was learned that enough chlorine could destroy just about anything.
Silver had proven its ability to control pathogens throughout medical history long before NASA saw it as an opportunity to safely, non-toxically, and non-corrosively purify recycled water aboard the APOLLO space craft.
