The Hudson Valve should be routinely cleaned to maintain optimal performance. Depending on your water source, cleaning should take place between 2 – 6 times per year. The more silt, rust, debris, etc. in your water, the more often you need to clean the valve. Moss, algae and other debris can clog the small holes that run through the valve causing it to stop working properly. Follow these steps for optimal performance.

Pivot Pro Knife Sharpener
Innovative Pivot Response Technology makes sharpening easier and more precise by allowing the abrasive to follow the curve of the blade when sharpening. It creates a sharp and consistent edge along the entire length of the blade. Pivot Response Technology is available in two ways: Convex Carbides and Bench Stones.
Work Sharp’s exclusive Convex Carbide sharpening system creates a superior convex edge profile quickly and easily. Convex edges cut smoother and hold their edge longer. Our Convex Carbides also provide the innovative Pivot Response Technology. This allows the carbides to follow the curve of the blade when sharpening and provides increased control of material take off to restore a sharp edge quickly. Pivot Response can be locked out to provide less material take off for quickly restoring a lightly dulled edge. Work Sharp’s innovative technologies allow you to take more control of the sharpening results you want, without adding complexity. Our engineered simplicity puts the skill into the tool, so you get sharper edges faster.
