Water FAQs

Water has two main functions: working water and drinking water. Carroll Water has trained professionals who service both. Your home or business needs “working water”— water used to help your home or business function (laundry, dishwasher, toilets, etc.), as well as drinking water. Drinking water includes the water from your tap, icemaker, or filter system. When it comes to drinking water, we take it very seriously because water is essential to life. That is why we make it our mission to ensure safe and high-quality drinking water for our customers, using the best products and techniques available. Simply put, our job is Purifying the Essential.

While city or municipal water is regulated, it does not always ensure that it is the highest quality drinking water or working water (laundry, etc.)
