How Does FluidRower Twin Tank Technology Work?

At the core of all FDF FluidROWERS is our patented Twin Tank technology, providing several distinct levels of Fluid Resistance regardless of the speed you row at. Our Twin Tank technology comprises the inner, passive (or holding) tank and the outer, active (or resistance) tank.

When you select a high level, water will flow from the passive holding tank to the active resistance tank as you begin to exercise, and you will experience the smooth fluid resistance, no matter what your speed.

Conversely, if you select a low level, the water will be transferred away from the active resistance tank and back into the passive holding tank, lowering the resistance. You can even make adjustments on the fly to find a load that is just right for your fitness training.

FluidROWERS largest format Twin Tanks produce at maximum on Level 10 an extra 65% fluid resistance. The XL Horizontal Twin Tank has extra-large impellers that capture more water and maximise the drag impact against the internal baffles and horizontal tank walls. The XL Horizontal Twin Tank has 20 litres of Fluid Resistance, three more litres than the standard horizontal twin tanks.

Love my rower!

I love this rower. Originally, I was looking for the pro, not pro xl, but that one wasn’t in stock and this one was. I chatted with Jay online who answered all my questions- especially on shipping time. I bought it on a Tuesday and they shipped it the next day and I had it by the weekend. It was easy to put together and I love the design where the tank’s two chambers allow for different resistance levels without changing the water level. I can even switch resistance mid work out. The swooshing sound the water makes is so pleasant and the motion feels natural. I can close my eyes and it’s almost like being on a river. I was worried about how easy it would be to maneuver around the room, but it’s very easy to stand up in a corner and roll it out when I want to use it. It’s a beautiful machine, too- like a piece of furniture. I couldn’t be more pleased with Cardio Nation. I would not only buy from them again, I’ve already recommended them to several friends. I’ve also recommended this brand of rower. It’s a very pleasant work-out- challenging, but also relaxing, and who doesn’t need that these days?
