Why Water Filtration Is Important

Water is essential to your wellbeing, and the benefits of water filtration cannot be overstated. The water you use every day for drinking, cooking, washing and showering, commonly known as tap water, frequently contains contaminants that can be harmful to your health and home. These contaminants can include bacteria, viruses, heavy metals and other chemicals and minerals.

Filtering your tap water removes these contaminants and makes the water safe for drinking, bathing, washing and cooking. Additionally, filtering your tap water can improve its taste and smell.

If you're looking to filter and enhance your Rockville water supply, Vito Services sells and installs whole-house water filtration systems to ensure the water you and your family are using is clean and refreshing.


Water is necessary for many of the body's functions. It helps regulate body temperature, transport nutrients and oxygen to cells, remove waste and lubricate joints. It also helps to maintain blood pressure and digestion. Without water, your body wouldn't be able to function properly and would eventually shut down.

The amount of water you should drink depends on your age, size, activity level and other factors. However, it's generally recommended that adult men consume about 0.8 gallons (about 13 cups) of total beverages per day and adult women consume about 0.5 gallons (about nine cups) of total beverages per day.

If you're like many people, bottled water may be your beverage of choice. While drinking bottled water is a good idea in terms of convenience, purchasing several cases of water overtime causes you to contribute to the production of plastic waste, which has a negative impact on our environment.

Installing a water filtration system in your home not only helps protect the environment, but is also a convenient way to have constant access to high-quality drinkable water without having to go shopping or lifting heavy cases of bottled water.


  • Improved taste and odor: Water filtration systems can remove unpleasant tastes and odors from your water, making it more enjoyable to drink.
  • Cost savings: Filtering your own water at home can save you money in the long run compared to buying bottled water or having a professional service come out to deliver water.
  • Eliminate scale from hard water: Hard water produces a residue (scale) that calcifies in your pipes causing pinhole leaks and clogging showerheads and faucets. Scale also accumulates in laundry and dishwashing machines, producing a bad smell and causing damage.
  • Reduced risk of cancer: Filtering water can remove certain chemicals, such as chlorine and lead, which have been linked to an increased risk of certain types of cancer.
  • Reduced risk of gastrointestinal disease: Filtering water removes contaminants such as bacteria, parasites and viruses that can cause gastrointestinal illness.


There are several different types of water filtration systems to choose from. To choose the best one for your home, you'll need to know what's contaminating your water, which can be done with testing. Once you know the contaminants in your water, you can explore the options best suited for your specific situation.


Over 80% of tap water in the US is considered "Hard Water", which contains residues – Scale – that build up over time. Even worse, scale residue also accumulates in your pipes and, over time, calcifies causing clogs and pinhole leaks.

Vito Services installs a whole-home de-scaler that gets rid of your "hard" water by adding a magnetic field to charge your water's mineral particles, keeping them in the water instead of being transferred to surfaces in your home such as bathtubs, showers, sinks, toilets, washing machines and dishwashers.

Whole Home Water Descalers are an efficient way to save as scale build-up reduces the life of your water heater and fixtures and makes them less efficient, where the heavy scale makes them have to work harder and use more energy.


Reverse Osmosis is considered one of the most all-around effective water filtration systems by eliminating up to 99% of most all contaminants. Reverse systems use a semi-permeable membrane to remove impurities from water by forcing water through the membrane and leaving behind contaminants and other particles that are too large to pass through. The reverse osmosis system also treats water with higher levels of micro plastics (PFOS & PFAS), arsenic, fluoride and lead.

The result of Reverse Osmosis is healthy, clear and good-tasting water perfect for cooking meals, making tea and coffee or drinking on its own … not to mention washing and showering!

Nearly all tap water contains chlorine and, as residents in Montgomery County are aware, WSSC uses a substantial amount of chlorine and permanganate to treat our tap water. A Carbon-based water filtration system will reduce chlorine, chloramines and chlorination by-products from your household water. In addition, carbon filters also remove the bad taste and smell from your tap water, making it clean and fresh!
