Water Filtration

This isn’t a question that anyone before the latter half of the 20th century really had to ask. But in 21st century America, this is both a legitimate and often worrying question. Just how much water are your children drinking on a regular basis? Are they actually getting enough?

Water Is Life

Everybody needs water in order to function; this is a medical fact of life. But kids in particular actually require more water than adults. Why is that? Part of the reason is that children are still maturing and thus require more internal resources for growth, compared to mature adults who no longer have the same requirement of keeping enough “fuel” available not just to get through the day, but also have enough to get taller and stronger. As a result, kids have a higher percentage of their body made up of water compared to an adult, who average about 60%.

But why is water so important? There are a number of different reasons:

Lubrication: Water is the basic component of lubricating liquids in our body such as the synovial fluids between bones that allow for smooth, precise movement.

Temperature: Nothing carries heat, or dissipates it like water, which is why water is an essential part of body temperature regulation.

Health: Water is also a prime component in distributing nutrients throughout the body. Not enough water can mean inefficiencies in nutrient delivery.

Detoxification: Water also carries away waste, which is why it is the chief component in urine and fecal waste as well.

Skin Condition: Dry skin is itchy, unhealthy and uncomfortable skin, but skin properly moistened by water looks and feels good.

Not drinking enough water can lead to dehydration, which, if unaddressed, can lead to illness and eventually death. This is why it’s important to make sure that children are getting the water they need on a daily basis.

The First World Danger

The biggest issue for children in the first world is that there are so many alternatives to plain old water that it’s easy to forget about getting enough. After all, soft drinks, juices and other beverages like milk are all wet, and therefore must have some water in them. So as long as kids are drinking something wet, they’re getting water, right?

However, it is all the additives in addition to water, that sap the pure, healthy benefits of drinking pure, plain old water. Soft drinks with huge amounts of sugar, for example, significantly increase the risk of cavities in the mouth, requiring dental treatment. More seriously, however, is that soft drinks have a high-calorie count, versus the ZERO calories of water. In fact, soft drinks are regularly cited as one of the most significant contributors to obesity in both children and adults in America. Drinks with too many additives can affect blood pressure, and even raise the chances of diabetes.

Try to encourage your children to drink a glass of water several times a day; upon waking up, at bedtime, with every meal, and even just before bathing. It will make a big difference to their overall health and a high quality water filtration system can help!

This company is a scam. First, we received a letter in the mail as if it was from our water company saying that we had a free gift card. Then, this company shows up and they tell us about their system. The guy tells all of this nice stuff, but we were reluctant on buying it. He and HIS MANAGER stated that we could return the system at any time if we would like. HERE IT IS 6 MONTHS LATER and we are trying to give them the system due to space and personal matters. Before I was hung up on, they informed that they DO NOT take back the system and the only "service" they do is fixing "minor" problems. Not to mention, now they are avoiding my phone calls, because the lady hung up on me, although I was not hostile nor disrespectful to her. TAKE WARNING TO THE BAD COMMENTS. Those who are complimenting this system I am positive are new users. The only way you can return the device is if you pay it in full and then return it for free. And the free items you get, are cheap and barely clean anything. Buy at your own risks.

Very friendly and great customer service! Ricky was great during the testing process. Jeremy got it installed super fast and effectively! and Elise was very helpful and friendly during the follow-up visit. Very satisfied with their service and happy about our water!

I have to admit this has been one of the most rewarded experience when buying something. People was really nice from Ricky the salesman, Jeremy the installer and Alice the person closing the paperwork and logistics of the fragrances. What a nice group of professionals on top of having a great product delivered. Also, knowing what Carolina Waters do as far donating to others in need around the world is another reason to support their Company. The people that interact with customers like me are the sample of having great leaders on their Company.

Our family is enjoying the Carolina Fresh Water filtration system, even our pets are enjoying the benefits. Mr. Steve White came by on November 2, 2018 and tested our water. He took the time to explain in details his findings and the benefits of purchasing the specific filtration system for our needs. All the expectations Mr. Steve W. set have been met so far. The very next day as he advised arrived Mr. Jeff to installed the system and explain how to maintain it This system is very easy to maintain. The water tastes amazing (so does my freshly brewed coffee). On that following Monday, Ms. Alyssa arrived to help us set up our product orders that are included with package we purchased. Mr. Steve W. and his coworkers made this experience and process a real smooth one. I highly recommend it!

Everyone that I was involved with from testing my water to installing my system to customer service was very professional and very nice!!! I highly recommend this system from Carolina Fresh Water to everyone!!! If you want clean,soft, safe and better water this is the way to go!!! It is a little expensive but worth it! I love my new water!!!

I really wish I would have read the reviews on this company before spending well over $7000 on a new system 3 years ago. This is the kind of water I bathe...

We love our water system. From the guy that set up our test all the way through—y’all have been very polite and go out of the way to make sure we was satisfied. We wish we had done this a long time ago—was really scary to see how acidic our water was. Jason has had two bone marrow transplants and we used bottled water for the year afterwards but then we was safe. I run a licensed daycare and have to have water tested in October——can’t wait to pass the first time!! Thank you again!!!

I received one of the water test mailers which I filled out and sent in. If I knew it was a marketing technique, I probably wouldn't have done it, but I am glad I did. Danny came out to do some further tests on our water and showed us the issues we have with city water. Danny is a great guy and not pushy whatsoever, I truly enjoyed having him out. I originally decided on just the reverse osmosis system due to money constraints, but ended up working out a deal the following day with the tech for the whole home system. Before I get into the equipment itself, lets talk about the tech who came out, Jeremy... Super awesome guy, very knowledgeable and I really enjoyed talking to him while he was installing the system. Jeremy has got to be the best installer they have! As for the system, I do notice a difference in the water, maybe not quite as much as I thought I would, but since you use water everyday, you don't think much about it. I feel like drinking water out of the tap now is much cleaner (also confirmed with a re-test). I'm waiting for this rain and crap weather to stop so I can test the water when washing my always-hard-water-spotted black car. If it can save me 15 minutes during a car wash, it was well worth it! With a lifetime warranty, you really cannot go wrong. It seems like a lot of money on paper, but when all said and done, it's worth it for my family's health. If you can afford the system, I don't see why you shouldn't buy one of their systems. The free soap is a huge bonus, but cannot comment on this yet because my first order is still in processing, but it's an added extra you cannot complain about. This is a seriously great company to work with and they really put the customer first. Danny, our salesman, and Jeremy, our installer, truly are one-of-a-kind great people. I couldn't have asked for a better, yet unexpected, experience!

We've had our whole house water conditioning system since spring of 2017. We're very pleased to have all water for bathing and laundry, as well as drinking water, conditioned and filtered. We had the annual service check today...thanks to Brandon Byerly, an installer and service rep who changed the filters on the RO at the sink (drinking water) and the whole house unit. He answered our questions and gave us a little refresher on maintenance of the system...not much to do, just keep the salt at the proper level, but he explained that we are using the wrong salt..should be using the salt for filtration systems, not pools, etc. We add a bag or two about once a month or 6 weeks. I'm pleased with our laundry and also that I shower / tubs do not have any soap scum problems. I almost never buy a bottle of water anymore...only if on a road trip. We have much purer water right at our tap for drinking water, and the other taps are all conditioned and much safer and nicer for our other uses.

So far very impressed by the service, very kind people. got the system one day and was installed the next day. I have well water and when washing clothes before the fresh water system put in, I could not see soap in the washer. Now after Caroloina Fresh water system placed I only used a third of laundry detergent from what I used prior. and I could see soap bubbles everywhere and my cloth came out smelling so much better. The drinking water is amazing. coffee actually taste like coffee. best investment my husband and i have made in a long time. service tech guy Tyler Mikelaites, was very nice, intelligent, and went out of his way to provide service, made sure we understood everything about the system that there is to know. Thanks so much, from the Brannon's

Carolina fresh water installed the system that I have they have maintained it and kept it in proper working order. Josh came most recently to service the filters and check water purity and iron levels. Josh is very knowledgable and courteous. He also took the time to explain parts of the system that I didn't understand. His visit was quite enjoyable and my water is soft, no iron, ph balanced and clean. Thank you Josh and all the service and sales personnel at Carolina Fresh Water .

We had a home filtration system for 3 years now. We love it. We don’t have to think about buying another water filtration systems to make our water drinkable right from the faucet. We always have nice people coming in once a year to check if our system works correctly and to change all the filters. This time it was Tyler and Josh - very nice guys. They were able to answer all my questions. Thank you so much.
