5. TANK FILLING AND WATER TREATMENT
TANK FILLING
CAUTION: Use a drop cloth under the tank when filling to avoid staining floor or carpet.
• Remove Black plug only for filling. Fill at MAX
resistance + sign only.
• Once filling is complete, insert tank plug into
place.
WARNING: Do not insert fingers into tank!
1. Filling requires a large bucket (not supplied) and the Fluid Rower Siphon (included). Filling will take approximately
4.5 gallons (17 liters) of water.
2. Remove the tank plug on top of tank and insert the flexible tube into the rear of the tank while keeping the rigid
hose in the bucket.
Note: Where water quality is known to be poor, Life Fitness recommends the use of distilled water.
3. Move the adjuster knob to the plus sign (+), and begin filling. Note: The siphon valve must be closed to allow
siphoning action to occur. Tip: Placing the bucket in an elevated position will allow the siphon to continually pump
water into the tank. Do not fill past the calibration mark indicated on the tank!
Note: Opening the siphon valve will stop the pumping action. Use this feature to avoid water spillage when
nearing filling completion.
4. Once filling is complete (to the proper calibration level as indicated on the tank), follow water treatment schedule
as shown.
WATER TREATMENT PROCEDURE:
1. Add one Water Treatment Tablet per full tank.
Note: The amount of water treatment can vary widely depending on the rower’s location and exposure to sunlight.
DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES USE OTHER TREATMENT TABLETS OTHER THAN THOSE SUPPLIED WITH
YOUR ROWER. Your rower box contents include 4x Water Treatment Tablets, which is sufficient for several years
of water treatment. Treat when water becomes discolored or shows signs of Algae/Bacterial growth. To purchase
additional Water Treatment Tablets, please consult your nearest regional dealer/distributor or check our website at
www.lifefitness.com
9
6. LONG TERM WATER TREATMENT AND BASIC OPERATION
CAUTION: Do not fill past the calibration mark as indicated on the tank level sticker or water spillage can occur. See tank filling/water treatment page for details.
Long Term Water Treatment:
Do not use any water treatment other than the tablets supplied with this rower. For replacement tablets, contact
Life Fitness.
Water treatment schedules for the Row HX™ Trainer will vary according to the fluid tanks exposure to sunlight, but
expect 8-12 months near a bright, sunlit window and 2 years or more for a darker location. At the point of finding the
water slightly cloudy, add a chlorine Tablet.
CAUTION: It is recommended that a drop cloth be used under the fluid tank whenever the tank is open for
water treatment.
Vertical Storage: The Row HX™ Trainer can easily be stored in a vertical, upright position. For safety, choose a suitable
location, such as a corner of a room. It is recommended that something soft (such as carpet or a small towel) be placed
under the upper rear of the unit to avoid marring the unit or the floor.
Resistance:
The level of resistance is determined by the level indicator located on the top of the tank. Level one indicates lightest
resistance, level four represents heaviest resistance. Allow for up to ten strokes after adjusting resistance handle for
desired resistance level to be reached.
10
7. SLIDER FOOTPLATE

To adjust, lift the top of the sliding portion of the footplate and slide up or down. The numbers 1-6 represent a guideline from which the proper length can be determined. Secure the plate onto the mounting pegs and push down firmly
to lock into position.

10. HOW TO ROW
1. Begin the stroke comfortably forward and push strongly back with your legs while keeping your arms and back
straight.
2. Begin to pull your arms back as they pass over your knees and continue the stroke through to completion rocking
slightly back over your pelvis.
3. Return to the starting position and repeat.
4. For further details regarding rowing technique please refer to our website at www.lifefitness.com
How Often?
Begin with 5 minute training sessions once a day and aim for around 2:30 to 2:45 for 500m time. Row at a pace that
keeps the water circulating continuously between strokes.
Progress a few minutes more each day until you are comfortable with 30-45 minutes training time 3 or 4 times a week.
This will provide aerobic endurance benefits, muscle toning and sufficient calorie burning to form part of a weight loss
program.
