Question about Water Rower WaterRower A1 Rower

2 Answers

My waterrower has a leaking seam in the plastic tank. I know its not that expensive to get it fixed, but its a big hassle...80 mile round trip in heavy traffic. Is it ok to use plastic sealant like you use in bathrooms? And maybe cover with clear plastic tape? Will that work? What type of tape?

I sealed my tank seal permanently and also fixed cracks on the bottom with Loctite PL Marine Fast Cure Adhesive Sealant. On the inside when the tank was apart I glued a heavy plastic patch directly over the cracks in the bottom. I made the patch from a flat section of plastic cut from an old refrigerator crisper drawer. After installation with the tank laying flat and level glue the upper side of the tank to the adjacent wood for stability. Wait a few days before filling. Photos are attached.

Good Afternoon:

Lawrence, you can indeed use Silicone Sealer like this one, which is aquarium (fish) safe::

And instead of clear plastic tape, use something like this, which is waterproof and uv resistant:

You will have plenty of extra for raingear.

Happy Rowing!

Gas leak on the seam of plastic gas tank


Looks like time for a new tank. There are methods for "welding plastic" you might take it to a Shop that repairs raditors and gas tanks. When you take it to the shop have as little gas in it as possible. SHOPS HATE IT WHEN THEY HAVE TO REMOVE 20 GALLONS OF GAS BEFORE REMOVING THE TANK. You might check with the dealer to see if this is a common problem if its not collision damage.
GOOD LUCK. PLEASE POST AND LET US KNOW WHAT YOU END UP DOING.
IT HELPS WHEN YOU ASK THESE QUESTIONS IF YOU TELL US THE MODEL AND YEAR OF THE CAR.

Coolant surge tank on my 93 saturn SL2 has a pine hole leak on the inside seam which is leaking out coolant and causing overheating. It is a plastic tank. Is the tank by itself replaceable? I have sealed...


The tank should be easily available at any auto wrecking/used auto parts locations.
Otherwise,do you have a soldering gun or soldering iron?
Clean off the epoxy and plastic weld the tank with your soldering gun.Just melt the plastic back together carefully.
Other plastic can be added into the weld if needed.

Good afternoon, Arne725:

I hope this message finds you well.

You can find clear silicone sealer here:

http://www.amazon.com/Permatex-80050-Clear-Silicone--3-Ounce/dp/B0002UEPVI/ref=sr_1_1?s=automotive&ie=UTF8&qid=1308017776&sr=1-1

and if you are feeling artistic, some pinstriping will nicely accent the tank.

Fuel filter location


The Fuel Filter is in the Fuel Tank, the Filter is considered a "lifetime" filter, that does not need to be replaced... which is not correct.... mine was clogged at 99,500 miles, and stopped my car from running all together.... I would replace the fuel pump and filter at 100K miles or 120K miles when you drop the fuel tank.. the pumps either go at 80-120K or never....
