About Fresh Water Systems
Fresh Water Systems was founded in Southern California in 1989. We had several businesses where we focused on installing and servicing commercial water coolers. As we grew, we began adding to our staff and product inventory while providing our customers with competitive pricing for their home and business water filtration needs.
Fresh Water Systems soon moved to the beautiful and verdant Upstate in the Appalachian Foothills of South Carolina. After more than two decades of business, we have become one of the biggest providers of anything and everything related to water treatment. Fresh Water Systems has grown because of its consistent customer service, large selection, and competitive pricing.
