"“THE SEARCH FINALLY ENDED. WE FOUND THE WATER WE LOVE. WATER WAYS BAJA, YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST.”
“We have been in a constant search for a proper source of drinking water since we moved here 20 years ago and opened Minisuper Munchies eight years ago.
The search finally ended. We found the water we love. Water Ways Baja, you guys are the best. We are grateful for supplying us with clean safe drinking water. You can really taste the difference and enjoy drinking water again.
We are so are so proud to be able to offer beautiful refreshing water, and free water bottle refills. We accept donations for our local turtle conservation and the Desplastifícate Todos Santos y Pescadero program to eliminate single use plastic.
If you are in the area please stop by and have a tall glass of wonderful water.”
Emily Bennett, Mini Super Munchies"
"I HAD ANOTHER COMPANY'S SYSTEM THAT WAS NOTHING BUT PROBLEMS."
I chose Water Ways Baja to replace that system because of their reputation in town. I like that they service everything annually and I don't have to worry about any of the water in my house or the water in my swimming pool. I've had my system for about 3 years and I'm very pleased."
"WE TRUST THEM. OUR WATER WAYS BAJA WATER PURIFICATION SYSTEM HAS WORKED PERFECTLY FOR US FOR 9 YEARS.
When we built our house, we knew we wanted a purification system. Lugging around those five-gallon bottles of water gets old. We had people telling us about stuff you could get on line and put in yourself, but we liked Barbara immediately. And they’re local and we like to support local businesses. There are probably over a half dozen of her clients right around us.
They are always very capable and honest. That’s something that we really appreciate in people we do business with. Anytime we’ve ever called and we leave a message, they call right back.
We have great confidence in them. They take good care of us."
"I COULD FEEL THE LIFE FORCE SHIFT.
I love having my Water Ways Baja purification system. I could immediately tell the difference in the taste. I could just taste the minerals. I could tell that I was drinking real pure fresh water that was coming from the earth here, instead of demineralized water that I didn't know where it was coming from.
I had been using garafones and knew I wasn't getting minerals. Knowing that Sam is drinking pure fresh water from this area, I know he'll thrive and develop in a healthier way than from water that isn't really alive. It feels so good not to have go out and buy and lug those garafones to the house, and I'm not drinking water that's been sitting in plastic. I'm super grateful."
"IT WORKS AS IF I'M LIVING ANYWHERE WITH QUALITY WATER.
It tastes better than boutique bottled waters, with no cost and no plastic.
I've had my Water Ways Baja purification system in my home for six years. I have total confidence in drinking and bathing, and Water Ways Baja provides exceptional service."
"I SWITCHED TO WATER WAYS BAJA BECAUSE MY FORMER SYSTEMS WASTED WATER, USED ELECTRICITY AND WERE HIGH MAINTENANCE.
I’m off grid. Everything is run on solar. Being conscious of my solar system, the pump was going on all the time to produce a small amount of purified water, with most of the water wasted. I did a lot of research on water purification. It was difficult to find a system that would just clean your water. Everybody wanted to use chemicals, or take away all the minerals.
Now, I have three Water Ways Baja systems. I put a system in my rental house, and one in the yoga studio I’m building. I want them to have the same quality water that I enjoy. I’ve recommended Barbara to at least a dozen people."
"I SURE WISH I'D HAD IT SOONER.
I’ve been here 21 years. I’ve had my Water Ways Baja system for three years. I sure wish I’d had it sooner.
I had a different system that was always tasting weird. It was slow and never seemed to work properly.
Water Ways Baja’s system has made my life so easy. It’s an incredible product. I highly recommend it."
"THEY ARE LOCAL. THAT'S IMPORTANT.
We didn’t go to anyone else. Water Ways Baja was highly recommended by friends and neighbors with their system.
They are local. That's important. We’re not here all the time and they monitor the system. The house is less compromised...the apliances, fixtures, the water heater. I’d be replacing these things without our system. It saves us a lot of money."
"WATER WAYS BAJA IS THE WAY TO GO.
That’s what a friend of ours said. He’s a water treatment engineer and he ran a water treatment facility for a major city in California.
I would not encourage people to look for a cheaper alternative. You’ll get something that doesn’t do as good a job.
Barbara is local and responsive, and I know for sure that it works."
"AS A SCIENTIST I'M REALLY IMPRESSED WITH WATER WAYS BAJA.
Barbara is mentored by the world's most talented water experts that have spent their lives studying water.
She has a true understanding of how water changes in heavy rain and during the dry season.
She takes time to attend water conventions, and apply what she learns in our area.
I have confidence in the whole system. I don't have to think about it or worry about it. I honestly think everyone should have it."
"BARBARA MANFREDIZ INVESTIGATES EVERYTHING THOROUGHLY. SHE'S REALLY SMART AND SHE HAS INTEGRITY.
We thought of other ways to purify our water, and then thankfully she came on the scene. She investigates everything thoroughly. She’s really smart and she has integrity.
The water tastes great. It’s simple and economical, and Water Ways Baja has a great maintenance program. It’s a no-brainer."
"THE HARSHNESS OF TODOS SANTOS WATER WAS KILLING MY HAIR TO THE POINT OF DREADING TO WASH IT.
We finally decided to invest in Water Ways Baja's full water system.
With the new system we enjoy doing our dishes by hand again in a matter of moments, laundry is faster, toilets fill faster...you name it.
And the filters and anti-scale - well that is the other bonus. We can now drink from our tap, keep ice cubes all summer long! Our clothes washer, hot water heater and water taps are much happier, and the shower is cleaner too. I cannot believe how big a difference the anti-scale has made. The harshness of Todos Santos hard water was killing my hair to the point of dreading washing it. I thought my only option would be a water softening unit, but that wasn't eco-friendly.
Thankfully I ran into Barbara Manfrediz at the right time. My household is very thankful we did, and we wish we would have done it earlier."
"I AM THRILLED WITH MY WATER WAYS BAJA SYSTEM.
I had a system before and it didn't work out at all. And I can't say enough about Barbara. She is so knowledgeable in her understanding of water purification.
It's easy for my guests and they are always surprised when they find out they have filtered water at the tap. I like the taste. I feel like I'm drinking real water, and it's cost effective! It's cheaper to have this system than going into town and buying bottles all the time."
"IT MAKES IT MUCH MORE NORMAL AND IT FEELS LIKE HOME.
Before our Water Ways Baja purification system, everything was more difficult. I always got a little bit sick, and now I don’t. We had all kinds of plumbing problems – shower-heads getting clogged, replacing toilet parts. It’s probably saved us money in the long run, and people who rent our home are much more comfortable. The purity of the water is wonderful."
"IT CHANGES EVERYTHING WHEN YOU CAN DRINK PURE WATER OUT OF YOUR FAUCET.
We don't have to think about the quality of the water. Whether it's showering, brushing teeth, cooking or washing dishes. Water Ways Baja keeps track of everything and we don't have to worry about changing filters or monitoring the system. They make it seamless. They take care of everything."
"Our new water system makes a big difference in our everyday lives."
"Our water treatment system was installed several years ago by another company. The service from that company was poor and we had issues with our system. They would not test our water which is something we require. As a busy coffee company and cafe, we need our water system to function seamlessly and we want assurance that the water is safe to drink.
The Water Ways Baja team came in and turned everything around. We have been impressed with the diligence of Water Ways Baja to monitor our system on a regular basis and keep it running efficiently. We didn't change the system, but we changed who we work with. The people at Water Ways Baja are simply 10 times better and that gives us peace of mind. The big relief for me is now I have someone I have total trust in to keep our water safe for the benefit of our customers' health, better tasting coffee, and protection for our equipment. I am pleased to recommend Water Ways Baja for a great system, the expertise to make it work and customer service you'll enjoy."
"We had a whole house system install in 2012 and have been more than pleased with the performance of the system. The scale remover coupled with <1 micron particulate filtering gives us the confidence and safety we were looking for in whole house water treatment.
The system was professionally installed and has been maintenance free. Barbara Manfrediz has always responded quickly to any question I’ve had and is very knowledgeable in water filtration systems. We have many friends who have had the same system installed who are just as pleased as we are. I also was very happy to find a system that protects against virus and other pathogens, uses no electricity and does not release salts to our grey water landscape system.
Being in the water business myself, it was a pleasure to find not only a system that was trustworthy here in Baja Sur, but to find a reliable company for sales and service that I can recommend to others. Thank you."
" Last week we had a water emergency in our house, and on a La Paz yahoo forum I asked for a referral to a water system provider. Several people responded with the name of the same person, Barbara Manfrediz.
I wrote an email to her and explained the disaster. She called me immediately (Saturday evening) and we discussed my needs. Barbara arranged to come to La Paz from Todos Santos early on Sunday morning. She carries a complete inventory of the replacement parts that would be necessary for a system like mine. Barbara made a very scientific assessment of our needs, and explained everything clearly. This impressed us both, especially my scientist husband. She has a lab that she works with for water testing and she has access to a water quality expert in Todos Santos.
She was able to reconfigure our system, which had been installed incorrectly from the outset. She conferred with the company representative who in turn spoke to the president of the company that manufactures one of the key components of our system. He also confirmed that what Barbara proposed to do was correct.
Barbara had us up and running in about 30 minutes. The water pressure in our house is better than ever, it had been terrible under the old configuration. The water tastes better and the scale problem we had in our pool should diminish. We just had the pool painted so we will be able to gauge that.
Barbara was here again today for a followup visit and to tweak the system. Barbara is happy to make service calls on your current system. She is happy to consult with you on what would be the best system for your needs should you be interested in purchasing a water purification system. Imagine using water directly from your tap!
Imagine swimming in water that feels soft and gentle against your skin. Imagine a life with no ugly, heavy garafons!
We are confident that our water purification system is now working as it was intended, and that Barbara will be able to keep it running.
Barbara is professional, compassionate and low key. You will enjoy working with her.
And most importantly she carries an inventory of replacement parts."
"As a health practitioner both living and working as an acupuncturist here in Todos Santos, I am frequently asked how people can change their living conditions here to improve and maintain their health.
The one absolute answer I can give is to invest in a Water Ways Baja filtration system custom designed for you by Barbara Manfrediz.
It is a simple and relatively inexpensive way to maintain your health. There is nothing like being able to brush your teeth and wash your dishes with the confidence that nothing will happen to you.
Here in Baja Sur the water has extremely high calcium concentrations which can cause many problems both physically and in your home plumbing. One of the most common issues I see here are gastrointestinal problems. Having your own clean water system drastically reduces the incidences of GI disturbances. Less skin rashes, smoother hair, and skin and less problems with kidney and gallstones and bone spurs.
No more garafons with dangerous plastics and just clean great tasting water.
"I don't know that much about water, other than it's wet, we need it, and it seems to get heavier every year, especially when it's stored in five gallon garafons. I know even less about purification systems, but I am fortunate to have a retired water treatment expert as a neighbor.
When he recommended the Water Ways Baja system, I had the confidence to take the plunge, so to speak. Barbara's system has provided us with great tasting, hassle-free water. I haven't picked up a garafon since it was installed months ago, and that's the way I like it.
"I have a water purification system in my house that I am so thrilled to have. Barbara was extremely helpful in informing us of the advantages and was present for the installation and instruction in its use. Since then, I have referred her to several clients of mine who have also installed the system. Barbara is easy to work with, and is available for any problems that are incurred well after the installation. I recommend her highly."
"HAVING A LOCAL REPRESENTATIVE IS A REAL PLUS.
Gary and I have been very pleased with our whole house water filtration system. What a pleasure not having to buy those big heavy water bottles and to be able to use our ice maker and have refrigerated drinking water. Also, it seems to have reduced the amount of soap we need for laundry and showers. Barbara was very efficient and knowledgeable during the installation process and was right there when we needed her for a new filter."
