Support
The WaterRower has been designed to require little maintenance. The only regular maintenance is to keep an eye on the quality of water in the tank. Purification tablets are recommended to be added every 3-6 months. Purification tablets are supplied by your local WaterRower office for the life of your machine. Customers in the USA and Canada can order them from here. Unlike other rowing machines, the WaterRower has no cogs and chains and so no oiling is required.
A Home Training DVD is included with the Natural and Designer models. This DVD is your virtual rowing guide with a wealth of insight and tutelage to maximize each workout.  Also, please visit our HowToRow.com website to see tips about getting started on your WaterRower, as well as advice on rowing technique and workouts. You can also contact any of our Customer Service representatives at your local WaterRower Office or email [email protected].
Product
Assembly of each model requires joining the main components together. Assembly should not take longer than 45minutes. All that is required is a 5mm allen wrench. Videos can be found here. Once assembled, water will need to be added to the tank. This can be done either using the hand syphon pump provided or hose. Please, refer to the manuals for water level recommendations. Be careful not to overfill the tank.
There are various models of the WaterRower, each are designed to suit a specific environment. There are no major mechanical differences to each model, just the hard wood used and the finish.
The Natural Series is made out of solid Ash wood, the WaterRower Natural is finished with a Honey Oak Stain and Danish Oil and the WaterRower Club is finished with Black and Rose Stain and Danish Oil.
The Designer Series consists of the Oxbridge, Classic and S1. The Oxbridge is constructed in solid Cherry wood and the Classic in solid American Black Walnut wood, both finished with Danish Oil. The S1 model has similar dimensions to the wooden models but the frame is made from Stainless Steel.
The M1 series consists of the Lo Rise and Hi Rise version, designed primarily for the commercial environment. The Hi Rise version has elevated legs to provide the WaterRower with elevated seating position and an easy on, easy off entry point. Both M1 models are constructed in aluminum and powder-coated in a variety of customer color options.
The A1/GX Series is different to all of the above models in that is it a mono-rail design, the Natural, Designer and M1 series are all dual rail.  This GX Studio version is engineered for use in group-x classes such as Indo-Row and ShockWave. This series is constructed out of solid Ash wood and aluminum rail. The Studio version, the Ash wood is finished with a Honey Oak Stain and Danish Oil, where the Home version, the Ash wood is finished with only Danish Oil.
