Designing Spaces of Hope

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – August 1, 2013 – Clearwater Systems, a water treatment company in Jacksonville, has partnered with Designing Spaces™ to support the donation and renovation of a home for Purple Heart veteran PFC Jeffery Taylor, his wife and three children. Clearwater is installing Kinetico water treatment products to improve the water quality in their home. The renovation will be revealed during a three-part television series, Designing Spaces of Hope – Project Homeward Bound, which airs September 25-27, 2013 on Lifetime Television.

Private First Class Taylor was critically injured during the Operation Iraqi Freedom invasion when his crew’s vehicle came under mortar attack, causing it to roll over into a canal and trap PFC Taylor under it. Rescued but left with a crushed leg, today Taylor lives with nerve damage, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, traumatic brain injury and hearing loss.

During Project Homeward Bound, a 2,300-square-foot, ranch-style house was completely transformed into a dream home for the Taylors, complete with water purification systems donated by Clearwater Systems. The water treatment company installed a S150 Kinetico Premier Series Water Softener, Kinetico K1100 Upflow Dechlorinator and Kinetico K5 Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water Station with QuickFlo Tank and designer faucet valued at more than $6,000.

“We are honored to be able to give back to a military hero and his family,” said Richard Rizzo, Licensed Master Water Treatment Installer for Clearwater Systems. “Our Kinetico systems will dramatically improve the water quality in their new home – it is a small way for us to give thanks to PFC Taylor for his courageous service to our country.”

“Kinetico is committed to improving water quality in the communities we serve,” said Kinetico Marketing Director Chris Robinson. “We’re grateful for the opportunity to give back to a local hero and help improve their quality of water and life at the same time.”
