This pressure washer is a wet steam, not a steam pressure washer. The water is heated up to 250 degrees F, and when it hits the air it will turn to steam. It will produce a maximum of 2700 PSI @ 250 degrees F.

This NorthStar pressure washer will work continuously. The burner will need added diesel fuel, and usage maintenance will need to be done.

Question

Auto shut off when not using

Does this system have an auto shut option that stops when water is not being sprayed or is the unit "on" all the time meaning the pump is continuously working and making noise all the time??

The NorthStar Electric Wet Steam & Hot Water Pressure Washer does not have an auto shut-off option. When you release the trigger on the gun, the burner will turn off, but the pump will continue to run, making noise.

The unit does not work in pure steam only. It works off of the hot water and steam rolls off of that. You could drop the unloader valve to about 800-1000 PSI and would be good to use to melt ice dams.
