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!

My family and I had the pleasure of having Guy come in a do our consultation. Guy was amazing with his presentation. Very hands on with us, especially our children. We were with him every step to ensure this was not a "gimmick". What sold me was providing him a washcloth that was washed and put away 3 days before he came in, and the amount of soap that was left in the water blew me. Our showers and laundry are much softer and fresher I must say! This is the second greatest investment this year. Our new home and appliances are as thrilled as we are! Thanks Carolina Fresh Water for welcoming us to Winston-Salem

We had a system put in some time ago and the results inside our home have been great! The only issue we had was outside. The nightly purge of the system killed a good sized area of grass where the system runs off because of the salt. After contacting the company and explaining what was going on, they quickly addressed the issue and I'll no longer have this issue! Thank you again for your timely response to this issue and I'm very happy we came to a fair resolution!


Larenda Cuffie

My husband and I had an appt today with Brandon. We had the most amazing experience with Brandon and all his knowledge about our water. He showed us things with our water we didn’t even consider. We were absolutely amazed by the water system and all the products that come along with it. The most unbelievably amazing part was the cost! Extremely affordable!!! Thank you Brandon and Carolina Fresh water!


Melina Sensale

We bought a new home and quickly realized there was something wrong with our well water. The toilets were stained a tan yellow and the water tasted like metal. After calling Carolina Fresh Water we had a rep come out to test the water almost immediately. He confirmed what we already knew, we needed a water filtration system. What we didn't know was how to fix it... thankfully Carolina Fresh Water did! Within days they installed a new water system! The installer explained clearly how to care for our new system. Our toilets are no longer stained tan and the water tastes like water! If a family member or friend expressed an issue with their water I would recommend Carolina Fresh Water to them.


Brittany Brown

Employee that came out to test water was very knowledgeable on the matter very helpful. Explain in detail the chemicals that are in our water system that we cook and take shower with. I think everyone should get there water tested to see what you are drinking to be sure you are not put harm in our bodies by the water we use.


Sharisse J.

I see all the bad reviews on here and I am so surprised. My husband and I had black slimy gook coming building on to our faucets and my water running...


Simona S.

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...


Michael M.

The only good thing I have to say is that the salesman was professional, personable, and on time. Although the product itself seems like it really could...


Melinda Johnson

we got this system a couple of months ago. we have started to notice an improvement in our hair texture after shampooing. the taste of the water is amazing


Kimberly Gould Herron

From the people to the equipment it is all around great quality. Our sales rep was friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. The plumbers/installers were patient, friendly and worked hard. They stayed until the job was complete. (We ran into multiple problems on our end and they hung in their with us! Not everyone would have done that.) The follow up rep was friendly and efficient and drove several hours to meet me at my house after work. Extremely awesome company. My water has never been better.


Lura Hunter- McKegney

So impressed with this water. Gets all the junk out of our real water. Jackson Bordeaux is the water tech and he was great..... highly recommend . I can give you his contact info if you would like. Installed by Tyler M and he was great. Feel free if you want to contact me for further recommendations


Regina Blankenship

I would like to say that getting the Carolina Fresh water system was the best thing for our family. I can honestly tell the difference on my skin. The customer service and installation teams were great and very friendly. I will be recommending Carolina Fresh water to all my friends.


Cathy Booker

Our experience with Carolina Fresh Water has been amazing. Each individual that came out knew the product very well. To me, that is excellent customer service. When I take interest in a product or service, I don’t want a just a salesman, I want someone who have and has experienced the product and service itself. The staff was super friendly and very knowledgeable. Guy, Alise and David were great! We’ve noticed the water was softer, laundry is fresher and the drinking water is perfect, even our dogs love it!


Larry Lee Carter

Carolina Fresh Water provided us with excellent customer service! They answered all of our questions and the installation went quickly without any issues.


Cindi Flippen Ritter

we had the water system installed in our home yesterday, I'm stoked after it was installed we had to purge all old water from our pipes in the home what a shock we installed a new hot water heater less than 4 months ago and with two complete flushes of the hot water I was still getting dirt in the bottom of my sinks and tub unreal I'm super excited about everything I didn't want in my water was there but, is now being removed really excited to reduce the cleaning supplies needed for personal hygiene and home.


Carroll Archer

Caroline Fresh Water did a great job testing, explaining the problem with our well water and installing our new water treatment system. Now we have great water.


Karin Fullington

Matthew M. came out to service our system, and he was so personable and professional. Great guy who I enjoyed talking with. No one showed up during my latest scheduled visit (which wasn’t Matthew), so it was nice when he showed up on time.


Christina Clinkscales Hatfield

With my water demonstration it showed me exactly what water we was using and drink. It was horrible. im so glad i got the system because it save me alot of money on water because i really. was bying alot of water b4 the system now i save thanks


Tema Hall Banner

Just had our system installed by Tyler Mikelaites, he was friendly, professional and and answered all our questions. We are excited to have pure water for drinking and cleaning. We were amazed by the presentation and all that we learned. If you're considering a water filtration system, I would definitely recommend Carolina Fresh Water.


Sue Belford

the soft water is great for your skin the drinking water tastes clean


Daniel DeVore

I never realized how bad my water was until they installed my whole home water filtration system. Although the sales method is a little odd for this company, everyone I had contact with was great! From the sales to the installation, the they all seemed customer focused and professional.


Jay Horne

Out service technician Matthew came out today for our first yearly inspection, replaced a few filters and really checked over our whole system to make sure our levels were proper. The company is standing behind their yearly inspection quote and we feel confident that we made the right choice. Our water is fresh and tastes good and we feel safer for us all and our guests! We feel thankful that Carolina Fresh Water stands behind their promises and yearly rates and will continue to recommend this company to anyone who has problems with their water purity! We were impressed to learn that several large companies around are also depending on Carolina Fresh Water Systems to protect their employees and customers.


Erica Mullis Carpenter

Lee Blackwell

Great Service, great product, and great water. Recommend to all my military friends!!!


Marie Duke

The folks at Carolina Fresh Water have been wonderful. From the very first assessment to today, everyone has been helpful and explained everything so that we understood what the system was to do and why it would be beneficial. They were not our first quote, but they had the best financing plan and were very helpful. Our water quality is 1000x better.


Cetoshia Alexander

I haven't bought the bottle of water yet but I love how they set up the system and they walk the steps and yes I would recommend anyone to go to these people they r good people


Liz Bending

Had our water system installed about 60 days ago and couldn't be happier! No more buying bottled water, we are using less laundry detergent, and showers are much nicer with soft water. I would highly recommend this system!


Ladonna Capps Lassiter

Carolina Fresh Water probably helped save us from developing cancer or something else equally bad from our severely contaminated water. They have been absolutely the best team to work with. Everyone has been not only extremely helpful and knowledgeable but also the nicest team to work with that we’ve ever dealt with. It has truly been a pleasure.


Domonique Mills

Haven't bought bottled water since the system was installed! Just had my annual service done. Matt did a great job!


John Jackson

I would be very carful on how the drain line is installed. It was setup to drain to my yard which has killed my grass. Guess it’s time to try and find a way to reroute the house to not drain to my yard. Anybody know the size of the line that is used for the drain so I can try and get some from Lowe’s?


Kim Hankins

Fifth year with my system. Today Josh did the annual service and again found everything working perfectly. Josh answered all my questions. Peace of mind with wonderfully clean water for another year!


Whitney Hansen

We can tell a huge difference in our water and so can our kids!


Mark Finewood

works great, excellent service. Just had the annual service, Matthew May was professional and informative
