Most Washington, D.C.-area residents receive their home’s water through a municipal commission, where the water is treated with several chemicals to disinfect, kill germs and bacteria. While this water is relatively “safe” to drink, the chemicals used – including Chlorine, Chloramine, and Fluoride – can have severe effects on your home and your health.
For a limited time, Vito Services is offering a Complimentary Home Water Test to all registered customers. The Vito Complimentary Home Water Test will measure several aspects of your home’s water supply, including the hardness of your water, and the number of chemicals and minerals in your home’s drinking water.
The Vito Complimentary Home Water Test will consist of the following:
While most DMV-area water meets standard regulations, it doesn’t mean the water can be considered “clean”. In fact, the chemicals used to disinfect the water can have severe effects on your health and home.
For starters, water that is high in Chlorine and Chloramine can wreak havoc on your home’s appliances. This is because when the water is heated the Chlorine congeals into calcium deposits and mineral residue. This leads to the hard residue “gunk” that accumulates in your shower, fixtures, washing machine, and dishwasher. Calcium build-up in your plumbing pipes will also affect the efficiency of your hot water heater, taking longer to heat your water and thus raising your utility bill.
Besides tasting and smelling bad, Chlorine and other chemicals can also have adverse effects on your long-term health. While drinking water with high levels of Chlorine and other chemicals may not hurt you immediately, it has been linked to adverse health effects including asthma symptoms and respiratory problems, food allergies, congenital abnormalities, and different types of cancer.
Vito Services is a leading water quality expect in the Rockville, MD, and Alexandria, VA, area. We were recently named an approved contractor with the Washington DC Lead Pipe Replacement Assistance Program (LPRPAP).
The LPRAP is designed to help DC residents pay for the replacement of their dangerous lead water pipes. Since the fledgling program began a few months ago, Vito Services has changed out lead pipes in over 30 homes and expects to do several more over the life of the program.
Vito Services recommends two products to effectively rid your home’s water of chemicals and contaminants.
Anti-Scale System: This mounted device sends signals throughout your water supply that breaks up the calcium deposits that clog your pipes, and wreck havoc on your appliances. Once installed, the Anti-Scaler is convenient and requires zero maintenance. Best of all, it will get rid of all that slick and slimy “gunk”. Other benefits of the Anti-Scale system include:
The Anti-Scale System protects your home appliances by removing calcium scale build up in your plumbing pipes. This eliminates the hard “gunk” that accumulates on your shower, fixtures, washing machine, dishwasher, and water heater, prolonging the life and efficiency of all units.
Whole-Home Carbon Filter: Chlorine is good for killing bacteria but bad for your plumbing and more importantly bad for you and your family. It also makes your water taste and smells bad. The Whole-Home Carbon Filter will eliminate the Chlorine from your water. Other benefits include:
The Whole-Home Carbon Filter eliminates chlorine, making your home’s water taste and smell fresh while making it safe to drink!
When used together the Anti-Scale System and Whole-Home Carbon Water Filter will provide your home with the cleanest and safest water possible.
