Why The Need For Water Filtration Systems & Services For Tyler and Jacksonville, Texas and Surrounding Areas

Few people stop to think that our water dates back millions of years. Through the centuries, we have merely been recycling it. Thousands of years ago that was not a problem. However, since the agricultural and industrial revolutions, many natural organic and man-made – or inorganic – chemicals, pesticides and pharmaceutical contaminants have unfortunately found their way into our water supplies. While the municipal water districts in and around the Tyler and Jacksonville, Texas does what they can within their budget restrictions, it is becoming more and more difficult for them to keep up with increasing demand for clean, healthier water in our area.
Because of these municipal water challenges, installing a whole-house water filtration system in your home is more necessary than ever to protect against these water-borne invaders like dirt, debris, heavy metals, chemicals, and hard water minerals that may be in your water as it enters the home.

The 3 Concerns in Municipal Water

There are 3 Concerns in today’s municipal water that must be addressed by a filtration system:

  1. Physical Contaminants like dirt, silt and particulates.
  2. Chemical Contaminants like disinfecting chlorine, chloramines, pesticides and herbicides, and heavy metals.
  3. Hard water minerals like calcium, magnesium and manganese.

Most people also don’t realize each of these concerns affect not only you and your family’s health, but the “health” of your very expensive plumbing system, and all the water-using appliances in your home!

Past vs. Present Technology

Previously, the only choice to treat these 3 concerns was primarily TWO tanks – a stand-up carbon filter combined with a softener. These systems are large, very inefficient, needed programing, and could waste as much as 500 gallons of water every month!

Now, thanks to the latest technology, ONE system can efficiently and effectively treat all THREE concerns in a compact design without needlessly wasting gallons upon gallons of water every month.

Much like any facet of life, technology keeps advancing. That’s why Bannister Plumbing offers the Tyler and Jacksonville, Texas and surrounding area residents Honest Water Filters to protect their families and their expensive plumbing systems. Simply put, the Honest Water Filters are the most advanced whole-house systems on the market today.

To treat Concerns 1 & 2 (Physical & Chemical Contaminants), these filters offer a 5-micron down to a 0.015 sub-micron filter for physicals and the most chemical-reducing carbon of any system available as illustrated by this chart.

They are also one of the only systems on the market that have been certified by NSF International for System Performance…going well beyond basic, standard certifications that most other systems promote they have.

Polyphosphates – A Hard Water Solution For Tyler and Jacksonville, Texas and Surrounding Communities

To treat Concern 3 (Minerals – aka hard water), Honest Water Filters offer systems containing polyphosphates, a proven, all-natural alternative to salt softeners. Unlike other salt-free systems that “mask” hard water problems, polyphosphates have been used in commercial applications for decades. How They Work: Polyphosphates sequester hard water minerals so they cannot scale and corrode plumbing and fixtures in the home yet leave “healthy” minerals in the water. They have been around for decades, are Food-grade and FDA-Approved.

The future of water treatment is here today…The Honest Water Filters.

Common Water Filtration Methods

We offer a wide variety of water filtration systems, including:

Reverse Osmosis – Offering fantastic water quality, these systems utilize a semipermeable membrane to get rid of particles, chemicals, and microorganisms in the water.

Carbon Filter – If you have a pitcher filter or undersink water filter, it probably uses activated carbon as the primary filter mechanism. Carbon filters work by absorbing contaminants, trapping them inside pores created by the positively-charged filter.

Distillation – Distillation water filtration involves vaporizing the water in order to separate it from microscopic, disease-causing organisms. Still, some contaminants will convert to a gas form with the water. For best results, combine distillation with a carbon filtration system.


You have two main installation options when it comes to water filtration. You can either install an undersink filter that filters water for that fixture only or you can install a whole-home water filtration system that filters the water for the entire home.

You can also use pitcher water filters, such as Brita, but these water filters aren’t as effective and require you to constantly refill the pitcher and buy replacements when needed.

Undersink Water Filtration – Like pitcher water filters like Brita, undersink water filtration only filters water at the point of contact—where the water enters the faucet or another direct access point. Undersink water filtration is cheaper than whole-house filtration, but you will only receive filtered water at that point and nowhere else in the home.

Whole-House Water Filtration – Whole-house or whole-home water filtration is the best and most comprehensive form of water filtration for the home. The filtration is installed where the water enters the home and results in water filtration for the entire water supply, including showers, washing machines, and everything else that uses water in the home.

If you want to have cleaner and more effective water for your showers, dish washing, and more, be sure to ask your plumber about whole-home water filtration options.
