Safer homes and healthier built environments make for happier families. That’s what Erik Bernal believes and strives to achieve through his life’s work and his various innovations. Working with builders, developers, and other partners, the innovator is out to radically change people’s lives by providing them with the Avengers of air and water filtration technology in built environments.
Erik is one of the keystones to the #1 healthy home concept in America, Certified Pure Wellness, which is bringing America’s healthiest homes to the residential home builder market.
Erik’s ability to scale the concept, however, was only made possible by proving it’s worth through his 14yrs in the residential water treatment business as CEO of Elite Water Systems in San Antonio, Texas.
Originally from Winters, Texas, Erik moved to San Antonio marrying his wife Heidi and they have five wonderful daughters. Erik graduated from the University of Tennessee with honors and holds a bachelor of science degree in logistics with a minor in marketing. After graduating, he began his career with Accenture in Atlanta. Later, Erik joined the business development department as one of their consultants and worked with large organizations such as SunTrust Bank and the State of North Carolina. He then moved from his role in Accenture to Schindler Elevator in New Orleans a year after.
But after Hurricane Katrina hit the state in August of 2005, Erik started to ponder the health impact of such a natural disaster. That became the starting point of his passion for water quality. He shifted gears and started working with various institutions to understand water challenges and the innovations needed to solve them. Gravitating to innovative brands like GE Water and Pentair Water Filtration, he began working all across Central and South Texas in 2007 to help provide people with the healthiest water filtration solutions. Elite Water Systems is now one of the largest residential wellness solutions providers in the country servicing at least 5 states.
In 2017, Erik Bernal aligned with Healthway Home Products to augment his business and revolutionize the residential builder industry as part of a team of experts for the Certified Pure Wellness brand.
Currently, Bernal is working with industry experts to provide real-time consumer data access about water and air filtration performance displayed on a smartphone or tablet through an app. According to Bernal, “In light of today’s pandemic, consumer’s deserve to know that their filtration investments are nurturing their wellness in real-time.”
Erik Bernal dedicates his work to the pursuit of giving people better health and safety. His relentless drive to develop health and wellness solutions has helped protect many homes all across America from the devastating health effects that contaminated air and water have on the human body. Erik hopes that his work would spark a revolution among homeowners and builders to spread the message that everyone deserves healthy air and water at an affordable cost.
