North Star Water Softeners:
The Professionals’ Choice
Water is your home’s most precious resource. You rely on it every day for drinking,
cooking, cleaning, washing and bathing. Your water heater, washer, dishwasher,
and other appliances all need the best water to work smoothly and efficiently.
That’s why a quality water softener is so important.
Why Do You Need a Water Softener?
Removing minerals like calcium and magnesium from your water will protect
the investment you’ve made in your home, add to your quality of life and save
you time and money. That’s because soft water:
•
Protects your plumbing, dishwasher, clothes washer, water heater,
faucets and fixtures and washbasins from damaging hard water deposits.
Water softeners
make your life
better
and your pipes and appliances
last
longer.
•
Leaves less soap residue so your showers, tubs and sinks are easier to clean.
•
Gives you cleaner dishes with less spotting.

Makes your skin feel smoother.
•
Pays for itself through savings on energy, water, salt, and soaps
and detergents.
In short, water softeners make your life better and your pipes and appliances
last longer.

North Star® Water Softeners
The Professionals’ Choice
Why Choose North Star?
North Star is the choice of professionals for four reasons: Experience, quality,
innovation and service.
Experience
North Star is an established company with a reputation for quality, reliability
and service. The company has been manufacturing quality water treatment
products since 1925. Today, they’re the world’s largest manufacturer of residential
water treatment systems. That’s experience.
Quality
Quality is built into every North Star water softener. North Star manufactures
95% of every water softener part, including salt tanks, mineral tanks, valves
and controls. North Star’s manufacturing facility is ISO 9001-2000 certified to
ensure the highest level of quality. In addition, North Star water softeners are
designed and built with fewer moving parts—and no metallic parts to become
Water

precious
resource.
most
rusted or corroded. The result is a solidly constructed, reliable water softener
that gives you precisely conditioned water day after day. That’s quality.
Innovation
North Star uses advanced filtration technology and state-of-the-art computer
controls to give you uniformly consistent softened water—together with the
greatest salt and water savings possible. That’s innovation.
Service
North Star water softeners are The Professionals’ Choice and are sold
exclusively through professional contractors so you know the job will be done
right the first time. Also, each North Star water softener is backed by an industryleading warranty ensuring quality and reliability. If there’s a problem with the
water softener, they will fix it. That’s service.
Up To 60% Less Salt Use
North Star “Look Ahead” Technology
Our softeners have a maximum efficiency of about 5300 grains
removed per pound of salt used.
Many mechanical timer units use over twice the amount of salt
that a North Star unit uses.

Why Choose North Star
Water Softeners?
Go to www.northstar.conditioning.com
to see an animated water softener.
North Star water softeners are the professionals’ choice. Here’s why.
Turbine Water Meter: Accurately measures the amount
of water being softened down to 0.2 gallons per minute.
24 Volt Electrical
System: Reduces
electrical hazards.
High Impact Salt
Storage Tank:
The high-density
polyethylene tank
is designed to
withstand impacts
and retains its
shape even when
full of salt.
Heavy-Duty Valve: Has fewer
moving parts than other
valves—so there’s less to
go wrong. With our proven
valve design there are over
2 million systems in
operation today.
“Look Ahead” Technology: The brains of the softener!
Our patented programming monitors your water use and
determines when a regeneration of the softener is needed.
The system learns your water use patterns and actually gets
more efficient as it learns. “Look Ahead” also calculates the
precise amount of salt and water to use to regenerate only
the portion of the resin beads that have been used (depleted).
This saves you salt and water and is why North Star softeners
lead the industry in rated efficiencies.
Super Cap® Time Keeper: In the event of a loss of power,
North Star water softeners maintain accurate time for up to
72 hours—without batteries. For longer power outages,
only the current time needs to be re-entered, the system
remembers the rest.
Environseal™ Circuitry Protection: North Star water
softeners are securely sealed to protect circuitry from salt
corrosion and high humidity so your water softener lasts
longer.
No-Worry Setting: No vacation setting is required. If you’re
not using water, it does not regenerate. That saves salt
and water.
Counter-Current Regeneration: North Star pioneered this
method where brine water is drawn into the bottom of our
resin tanks which enhances the regeneration process. This
is the preferred method but practiced by only select
manufactures.
Brine Valve
Assembly:
Proven design
ensures precise
brining for the
life of the softener.
High Capacity
Resin: North Star
uses a special
long-life resin
for the most
efficient use
of salt and water.
Resin Bed Agitator:
North Star water softeners
use water pressure to
constantly agitate the
resin bed. This keeps the
bed free of iron, dirt and
other solids so the softener
runs at peak efficiency
and capacity.
Double-Lined, Reinforced
Mineral Tank: All North Star
water softeners are
double-lined for strength
and durability.

Which North Star Water Softener
is Right for You?
All North Star water softeners are built with the same quality and efficiency
and are designed to save you time and money. Which model is right for you?
Use the steps below to help guide you in your decision.
Step 1—Capacity
Determine the grain capacity of the unit for you. Family size, peak flow rate
needs, hardness and iron minerals in water, and desired regeneration frequency,
are some of the considerations to use when sizing the proper system. The chart
below is a general reference.

North Star Ultra
Phone Diagnostics
If you ever have a problem with
a North Star Ultra-equipped water
softener, just touch the ESP phone
symbol on the control panel, call
the toll-free number on the display,
answer a few questions, and hold
the phone to the face plate. The
Ultra electronics will then transmit
its operating history and current
operating data. A service technician
will analyze the data and determine
whether an adjustment is needed.
This saves you service calls,
time and money.
