There are no health benefits in carbonated water. Yes flavored water (carbonated or otherwise) doesn't have sugar so has fewer calories but then plain water doesn't have sugar calories either. Carbonation can have it's own negative health issues - including calcium loss from bones. Artificial flavors can pose problems for some people - a recent double blind study of artificial flavors added to children's juice boxes showed >60% had behavior problems (think of all the artificial colors and flavors in schools and is there any wonder there are more behavioral problems??)
Anyway, home carbonating water and adding flavor may be a good way to disguise water and perhaps it's a better choice for some than full on sugar soda products but nope there aren't health benefits.
