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!

When typing "Carolina Fresh Water" into Google search one of the very first suggestions is "Carolina Fresh Water Scam" which couldn't be more accurate. We were promised clean and filtered water when we hired Carolina Fresh Water to install a whole-house filtration system, but what we got was shoddy work from a dishonest company that doesn't stand behind their work. Carolina Fresh Water did NOT obtain the proper permits to install the system and they also did not inspect the work after installation. They ILLEGALLY installed the drinking water system and directly connected the drain into the waste pipe which poses a serious health hazard for our family if it were to ever back up; we'd be ingesting waste water. Our reverse osmosis drinking water system mysteriously stopped working after they came for their annual service call in which you pay $250 for. They came once to fix it and after a couple of months, it stopped producing water again and they told me the only way they'd come fix it was if I paid an additional $150 each time for a service fee. When I asked to speak to the manager, the employee on the phone laughed and said they'll call me, but it could take a while. After three months without a return call, I reached out to Kristi Beeler herself as she runs the business, she never returned my calls or texts. Recently, their new service and installation manager, James, reached out to me because they caught wind that I turned them into the State plumbing board. I told him, I wanted them to come get their system and return my $8,000+ because when they illegally installed the system, they broke the contract and he threatened me with a lawyer. Whatever you do, do NOT hire Carolina Fresh Water. They are dishonest and do more harm than good. Also, don't be fooled by any positive reviews as they offer their new customers a monetary incentive to leave a good review.

Carolina Fresh Water is AWESOME!!!! The process was simple and I no longer worry about the quality of my drinking water. My family loves it and so do I. I feel like the Carolina Fresh Water folks are family to me. Everyone there is so nice and I love getting out of the shower and my skin is not dry and itchy. I also am savingoney by not buying bottled water anymore and the soaps and the cleaning products have saved me several dollars as well.,

My review consists of three aspects of what this company offers: 1- Fresh water system ( 5 STARS), the system works well (at least after a week!) and I will periodically update on that. cleans the water well. water is truly purified and feels nice on the skin. The plumber was fast and efficient. 2- The sales pitch (3 STARS). The salesman coming to our house (Robert) was a nice person. But he was a bit pushy (which is common in sales business!) and didn't explain the finance option completely. 3- The saving products: Americana shopper (1 STAR). We logged in the system, checked the coupons, 1st you need to know that you have to PAY for the coupons and a 10% processing fee for the coupons. So their 25% guarantee is true if you buy mostly junk food! A family that cares for their water quality usually would not go after most of the items offered through this system. We are still waiting on the natural cleaning products. Crossing fingers that one might be better than their coupons! Overall, I think it is a bit overpriced. But I hope their services justify the really high cost for this system. EDIT: 5 months after the service: They promised that they would come and check on the system quarterly. They had a courtesy call but never set an appointment to check the system. Their financing through aquafinance is by far the worst that we have we worked with (constantly messing up our bill and we have to double pay in to avoid overages). So they did not deliver on their promise... P.S. the coupons are terrible and not worth the time. They encourage using junk food...

We would have given a 5 star rating except for one issue. We have called the office and asked to speak with Stephanie or Matthew. We have called two days in a row and were told that they would get back with us in 15 minutes. We are still waiting to hear from either one of them. Adam, the sales rep, the installer, and Alise, were great. We are pleased so far with our new water system. Looking forward to receiving our new products.

I give Carolina Fresh Water an A+ rating for the overall experience. Each person I had dealt with (Sukie, Elise, and Tyler) was not only professional but "down to earth". They were very passionate about the importance of CLEAN water. After using their system for a week, I can tell a major difference in everything...food, dishes, skin, hair, clothes, etc. I highly recommend this system for your home.

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...

Fake fake fake fake. We sent in an empty bottle, got a call a few days later saying that we had water that was way out of the normal and more tests needed...

I believe they're a scam I haven't purchased anything from this company but just looking at there laughable "test sampling kit" alone made me seriously...

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.

I have had my system for almost 2 years and it is not working properly. I was told we were getting a whole house filtration system but turns out, it's just a water softener. I were told 1 bag if salt per month, we have put in 9ish bags in 21 months. the salt in my tank is black and that can't be healthy. My RO system doesn't work, I have to replace the filters every 2-3 months and they are $150.00. CFW should be ashamed of themselves with all these false promises and none of this was installed in my home legally, no permits or inspections.

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

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?

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!

CFW has the science & research to support their claim to fabulously clean water. From the beginning of the powerful, eye-opening demonstration to the end I was sold! I highly recommend Carolina Fresh Water 🚿 for your family.

So many thanks to Carolina Fresh Water for the amazing System and great tasting water!! Adam was an amazing representative who displayed the system and water testing. He wasn’t pushy about selling the system and respectful about give us time to discuss! Robert and Noah was very prompt, Amazingly nice and hilarious, very respectful (took their shoes off at the door🤗) so informative about the installation process and keeping me afloat on what they where doing! Elise topped off the process with her wonderful humor, final testing, huge coupon book and the best part, picking the oils for our free products!! Thank you Carolina Fresh Water!! 💦 Monikka Youngblood

Our well water is looking like orange juice after a rain. Contacted CFW for a consult, the water testing was done for free, OMG, our water was terrible. A new filtration system was installed the next day! Our water is now clear, and feels like silk. Call CFW for a free water test and see what’s in your water. You will be glad you did.

We just had a water system installed into our house. We love it! Now we can drink water 💦 without fear of contamination. Our water is so clean and soft. No more harsh water in our pipes! The service was excellent in every aspect of the process. We would refer to anyone looking for a great system of clean water for your family.

I would highly recommend you have them out to test your water, they are highly qualified to test your water and when they did, I couldn’t wait to have the whole house filter and reverse osmosis systems installed, I feel anything you can remove from your body is a big deal, knowing my appliances are not going to get full of crud and could last longer was a bonus, the water taste better than any bottled water I tasted, I don’t have to squeegee my shower, just rinse the walls and no spotting, can’t wait to wash our vehicles and not have to towel dry them, the girl who tested the water was very professional and answered any questions we threw at her, the installer was great as well, I’m bad with names so I don’t recall but you should have them out to see how your water is

2019-04-03

Matthew Curtis

Yes I would recommend Carolina Fresh Water. My salesman Chris was very informative, he kindly let me know how bad my well water was and his demo was spot on to what we needed. I had extremely bad well water before and now I can see the improvements throughout my house. My shower feels a million times better and the drinking water is excellent!! It is a bit pricey but i consider it an investment for years to come in our new house. The installers Jeff, and his men were very fast, polite, and professional. He fixed my water pressure which was also a had a huge impact on our showers and faucet. Again, great company and great product !!

My system was just put in! Robert and Noah were my installer who were very professional, curtious, and friendly. I was already excited about getting the filtration system but as it was being installed and I was being educated about the benefits of the system by Robert and Noah my excitment Grow! They made sure I understood my system and how to get the most from it. I can’t say thank you enough!

I just had the whole house filtration system installed. Tyler was very professional. He answered all my questions throughout the process. It took a few hours but he explained and showed me everything about the system when he was done. He was great.

Jason Angela Hinson

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.

Donna Brannon

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

Kevin Waitt

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 .
