Home Improvement

We've been told about the importance of drinking water for decades. It's what sustains us, and without water we simply wouldn't be here. But did you know that 75 percent of Americans today are dehydrated? Despite drinking plenty of water and even reaching the recommended daily allowance, caffeine intake and alcohol can offset this and leave you dehydrated without even realizing it.

The Golden Rule

For years, the golden rule of hydration has been simple - drink eight glasses of water every day, each of them 8 ounces. But while a total of 64 ounces of water sounds like a great way to stay hydrated, the reality is that there isn't too much science backing up that number. But what is backed up by science is the fact that drinking plenty of water can have dramatic impacts on your health. Staying adequately hydrated is an absolute must if you want to be at your best, every day.

Facts Worth Knowing

If for some reason you're still not completely convinced that you need more water in your life, take a look at some of the huge health benefits that science has found. It could be all you need to start adding a few extra glasses to your daily intake.

  • Improved Performance - Even if you're not a huge workout fanatic, the fact is that dehydration can reduce your body's performance dramatically. Lower levels of hydration can reduce motivation, increase fatigue, and make it harder to complete even the smallest amount of exercise.
  • Brain Function - Dehydration can actually reduce your brain's ability to perform properly. Fluid loss can impair brain function and make it harder to concentrate, stay in a good mood, and complete basic computations.
  • Better Digestion - Drinking ample amounts of water can help combat constipation and make it easier to digest your food properly. Better digestive health can have a big impact on how you feel each day.
  • Reduced headaches - Being dehydrated can directly cause headaches. In fact, migraines are a potential problem when you fail to drink enough water.
  • Hangovers - For those who enjoy having a few drinks periodically, water may be the best solution to ward off hangovers. This is because an effect of alcohol consumption is dehydration, and combatting that with ample amounts of water can help you reduce the chances of a hangover.
  • Weight Loss - Drinking water can also help with weight loss. Often, dehydration causes feelings of hunger, which in turn leads to eating when the body in fact isn't hungry. Staying hydrated can help you stop overeating and lose weight.

Staying Hydrated And Healthy

Of course, you also need to make sure that you drink plenty of water that is healthy and safe for you. The right filtration systems will have a huge impact on your health and well being.

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, dishes, skin, hair, clothes, etc. I highly recommend this system for your home.


Noleen Collins

We are happy to say that we have invested in a water system that worth paying for. The water that we are drinking is the best that we have drank in a long time. Everything that was told to us was not in vain. I would recommend this company to anyone that is having hard water problems.


Chelsea Oliver

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.


Tracey Luffman

We had fresh water installed today. The technician was polite, professional and knowledgable. He answered my questions went over everything with me then my husband. Thank you again Justin (?).


Jeremiah Morgan

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!


Kennis B.

I had searched water filter systems on the Internet. I was contacted by Carolina Fresh Water and arranged an in home presentation. I was aware I had some...


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...


Dana Rice

Robert and Noah are a very professional installation team who took their time to install properly and educate me on the system. Jim Peacock did an excellent job with the initial water testing and recommendations.


Don Fowler

Had system for nearly 2 years. Water is clean and fresh. Service people are great and courteous. Cleaning products included with system are good and money savers


Amy Morrow

We just had a water system installed into our house. We love it! Now we can drink water đź’¦ 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.


William Loud

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


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 !!


Quinton G. Ford

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!


JD Gilliam

They were very professional. The technician Josh knew the product and answered all questions.


Barb Moore Callaert Hurley

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!!!


Julie Yami

Great system and great service! I highly recommend this company.


Lizzy Neely

I love my water system! Very friendly and polite people. All the staff were great, very professional. The installer did a great job, he answered all our questions and made sure we fully understood how the system works.


Kyle Ross

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 .


Mark Raulerson

Brandon Byerly serviced our water system today. Very professional!


Beata Dec

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.


Connie Carter

Josh and Tyler were here to service my water system I purchased from Carolina Fresh Water, They were very professional and knowledgeable. I would recommend this company for your water needs.


Margie Rivera Joshua Braeske

Brandon Byerly was our tech courteous,was on time ,knowledgeable and trustworthy.


Gina Gerbe Douglas

Recently had a Carolina Fresh Water purifier put into my house and the water tastes great and my skin and hair feel so soft. The people at CFW were wonderful during the sales process, the install and the post follow up. I would highly recommend them to anyone!
