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.

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!


James Trant

The new system is such an improvement over our well water. There is no more water staining in the toilets or tubs. The dishes are coming out cleaner. The water tastes great and all the sulfur smells are gone. An overall great investment.


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!

Thus far, the water has been awesome. We receive compliments all of the time in regards to how fresh our water is. Our dog even tastes a difference and now she loves to drink water and will not drink other water due to the difference. We were misguided at first thinking that it was the city water people, but we were satisfied with everything.

Best tasting water out of my spigot that I've ever had!


Joe Cleereman

very good people and the best water you can get from anywhere.


Richie Athay

my name is Richard Athay and my wife Kimberly Click had the whole house water treatment system and the reverse osmosis system for the kitchen installed it's been a month now and the difference is amazing. No more hard water strains, the cloths feel cleaner, no more water spots on the cars, and the reverse osmosis water for drinking and cooking is amazing. Installation took a little longer but that was my faught, we hand the well bladder and the whole system moved to the garage for ease of care. Tyler Mikelaites was the installer and his work is amazing, attention to detail was on point and he was very knowledgeable and explained everything to us during and after installation. I would recommend this system to everyone


Mark Rhem

I just bought my in home water. unit and the water taste as clean as can be it is truly fresh I highly recommend this for any one who is looking to be healthy!!!


Brian Dixon

From the in-home water testing to the filter system installation, everyone I encountered was very professional. They were willing to answer all of my questions, listen to my concerns, and explain every aspect of the system. Great customer service and exceptional people to deal with.


Kelly Heffelfinger

I am still happy with my water system you installed 2 yrs ago. I had my filters changed and unit serviced by Matthw M. He is very nice, friendly, honest. I felt like I already knew him. Thank you Matt M. 😊


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.


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!


Domonique Mills

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