Home Water Softeners

Here are some features that have made North Star the professionals' choice


“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. You use up to 60% less salt! 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 NSC30_cutout

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.
