Roots do not absorb CO2. You could foliar feed with the water, but I don't know how effective it would be compared to a CO2 enrichment system. Remember that plants will only utilize the excess CO2 during light hours.

Also, adding carbonated water to your soil will drop your pH, since you are basically adding Carbonic Acid to your soil. Keep the CO2 on your leaves and the O2 on the roots.
