Clean waterrower tank


How did you get on with this?
I recently came back from a long holiday to find that I had a living water tank ( I normally have a curtain covering it, but it hadn't been covered properly ( or even at all).

In my case the growth looked like feathers in the tank...the rest of the water was clear.
The process I used was:
1: fully drain.
2: Flush
3: repeat until it is clean.
4: add a chlorine tab and schedule reminders on your phone.
To fully drain:
I siphoned the dirty water out using a Wilko home brew siphoning kit ( about £3) and the siphon pump that comes with the rower.
Specifically, I plugged the plastic pipe (hard) into the flexible tube by at least an inch, and CAREFULLY slide the pipe into the waterrower tank ( carefully: if the pipe comes out inside the tank, there is no getting it out).
Then I wrapped some clingfilm around the open end of the plastic tube ( to make a seal), and shoved that into the feed ( straight) leg of the siphon pump. It doesnt have to look pretty, just get a seal and be easy to remove. I could have used duck tape to make the seal, etc. Then check that the screw at the top of the siphon pump is closed, and the squeeze the bulb at the top of the pump to pull all of the water out of the tank and into a suitably sized container. I used a bucket, but you might need to use something lower, like a gardeners gravel tray, or lots of washing up bowls... depends where you keep your rower. Just have the storage ready.

The most efficient way of doing siphoning is to pump the dirty water into until it is over the height of the top of the hose, then smoothly remove the siphon pump leg, leaving just the hose to drain the dirty water into your bucket.
Back at the tank end, twist the tube so that you point the plastic pipe into the closest bottom edge of the tank, then use books to angle the tank so that it is the lowest part of the tank... gunk should fall into that corner, and your siphoning should then drain the most gunk out. I agitated the tank a little, to make sure I was getting the most muck out, it seemed to work quite well.
2: Flushing the tank.
Once the tank was as empty as I could get it, I used a fresh bucket of fresh water and filled the water rower tank - no need to remove the plastic pipe/tube arrangement from the tank at this point. Once it has at least 10 litres in the tank, you can carefully remove the pipe/ tube from the tank and spin the rower mechanism for a while: we're trying to agitate fresh water over the inside surfaces, to get the gunk into the water, rather than the surfaces. I found that it helps to stand the machine up, and carefully spin the mechanism a couple of times: it puts water over the upper surface of the tank.
Then it is back in with the tube/ pipe arrangement and drain as previously.
Then flush again with fresh water, then drain again.
At this point, my machine was clean enough to refill, add a chlorine tab ( free from the nice people at Waterrower) and job done.
The best advice.
Prevention really is better than cure: I recommend you use your phone to calendar a reminder to put a tab in every month/6 weeks or so during the summer, and every 2 months or so in winter ( UK, other countries sunlight/ temp may vary). In that way, you will never have to mess about with the siphoning kit again....

Hope it worked out for you!

Control buttons have stopped working


You'll find the battery acid has leaked on the green cable linking the console to the buttons. I wiped down this green cable with water - removing the acid residue and the buttons started working again.

You can get to this cable by unscrewing the plastic fascia. There are six screws on the rear and two on the base of the unit.

Reebok edge rower display console keeps reading 'stop'. only works if unplug adapter undereneath rower but only works for few seconds before returning to 'stop' ???


Welcome to FixYa.

If the console has a battery, most likely it is worn out already. You need to replace the battery. Some rower consoles does not easily expose the battery. You have to open it with screw drivers.

Thank you for using FixYa.

What kinds of boats are used for rowing?


The boats (or shells) are basically of two types and reflectthe two forms of rowing---sweep rowing and sculling. In sweep rowing each rower handles a single oar (about 12.5 ft or 3.9 m long) in sculling a rower uses two oars, or sculls, (each about 9.5 ft or 3 m long). The word shell is often used in reference to the boats used because the hull is only about 1/8" to 1/4" thick to make it as light as possible. These shells are also rather long and racing shells are as narrow as possible while recreational ones can be rather wide. Most shells today are made of composite materials such as carbon fiber, fiberglass, or kevlar. A few manufacturers still build wooden boats. Each rower has his back to the direction the shell is moving and power is generated using a blended sequence of the rower's legs, back and arms. The rower sits on a sliding seat with wheels on a track called the slide. Each oar is held in a U-shaped swivel (oarlock) mounted on a metal pin at the end of a rigger. The rigger is an assembly of tubes that is tightly bolted to the body of the shell.The exception to this are some european recreational boats called "inriggers" which have the oarlock attach directly on the gunwale. The subtypes of rowing shells are classified according to the number of rowers in the shell. Sweep Boats (each rower has one oar) These shells can have a coxswain---a person who steers the shell (using a rudder) and urges the rowers on. I have included in parenthesis the symbol used for each subtype along with some dimensions and weights. Coxed Pair (2+) Two sweep rowers with a coxswain. Coxless Pair (2-) Two sweep rowers without a coxswain. Coxed Four (4+) Four sweep rowers with a coxswain. Straight (or Coxless) Four (4-) Four sweep rowers without a coxswain. Steering is usually accomplished via a rudder that is attached to a cable that is connected to one of the rower's foot stretchers (this an adjustable bracket to which the rower's feet are secured). The coxless pair has a similar type of rudder setup. Eight (8+/8o) Eight sweep rowers with a coxswain. Eights are 60+ ft (~18.5 m) long and weigh about 250 pounds (~114 kg). Sculling Boats (each rower has two oars) Only in rare cases do these boats have a coxswain. Steering is generally accomplished by applying more power or pressure to the oar(s) on one side of the shell. The hands overlap (usually left over right in the US) during part of the rowing cycle, or are always left in front of right. Single (1X) One rower or sculler. Singles are about 26 ft (8 m) long and less than a foot (0.3 m) wide. Racing singles can weigh as little as 30 pounds (~13.5 kg). There are heavier (~45 to 50 pounds), shorter and wider versions often referred to as recreational singles. Double (2X) Two scullers. Most racing doubles can be also used as a pair with a different set of riggers designed for sweep oars. When used as a pair a rudder is usually added. There are also recreational versions of sculling doubles. Quadruple (4X) Four scullers. Often referred to as a `quad' and usually has a rudder attached to one of the sculler's foot stretchers as in the straight four. Most quads can also be rigged as a straight four using a different set of riggers. Octuple (8X) Eight scullers. This is rarely seen, though is used in the UK, at least, in junior competition where sweep rowing is not allowed. Weight Classifications There are basically two weight classes for rowers---heavyweight (HWT) and lightweight (LWT). Men (M) For team LWT boats, there is a 72.5 kg (~160 lbs) individual maximum, and the boat must average no more than 70 kg (~155 lbs). Women (W) The individual maximum for team LWT boats is 59 kg (~130 lbs), and the boat must average no more than 57 kg (~125 lbs). In the US, the women have an individual max only; no average. In some regattas in the US (usually head races late in the season) these limits are increased by 5 lbs. A rowing shell is usually built with a particular weight class of rower in mind. Until just recently the Olympics effectively had only HWT classifications.
