About Our Award-Winning Marin Pool Maintenance and
Repair Company

Steve & Carol Bornstein operate Crystal Clear Pools in Marin County, California.Winner of a US Commerce Association Best of San Rafael award, Crystal Clear Pools has provided pool maintenance and cleaning services to Marin County since 1988. The company serves condominium HOA’s, commercial properties and residential customers.

When Steve Bornstein bought Crystal Clear Pools in 2004, he had already been growing Steve’s Pool Service for 16 years. Acquiring Crystal Clear Pools allowed him to realize his vision of owning a truly superior pool service company. A Cal Berkeley sociology graduate, Steve was drawn to the business by the opportunity to work outdoors and engage with  people.

In 2014, Carol Bornstein joined Crystal Clear Pools to partner with her husband Steve. A registered nurse for more than 30 years, she brings her friendly, organized and supportive abilities to the company.

Complete pool maintenance and repair services

As Steve built Crystal Clear Pools, he has focused on giving customers complete, responsive and competitively priced service. His vision for the company is to provide the best of both worlds — small enough to offer personalized service, with the repair and installation capabilities of a larger firm.

Among the company’s specialties are:

We are fully licensed, insured, and bonded and hold two swimming pool California Contractors Licenses; C53 and D35. D35 is the basic swimming pool maintenance license. C53 qualifies a swimming pool contractor to build and remodel pools. We can replace skimmers, suction and return lines, design and install solar heating systems for pools, install handicap lifts and rails, install water slides, and water features.

We are a PG&E Certified Energy Efficiency Equipment installer.
