Rower Maintenance - Water vs Air

Also interested in this, as I am looking at Ergatta vs Hydrow. From what I understand, the Ergatta needs to have some chlorine pills added to the water every few months or something I think? I could be wrong though. And does the water ever need to be drained entirely and filled again?

Water rowers require a bit more maintenance than air rowers. An air rower may get dust and lint in the fan which needs to be cleaned off occasionally, and if the air rower has a chain drive it may need periodic lubrication, which isn't difficult (it's like greasing a bike chain - super simple). Water rowers do typically require a chlorine tablet every three months or so to keep the water clear. If you plan to move your rower to a different location or store it for a long period of time, you'll need to drain the tank. Once per year, we make sure and drain all our rowers and refill them with fresh water. It isn't a terrible hassle - but it keeps the water fresh and clear.
