I got mine from Rouge fitness they had the best price/ shipping. Seat is on plastic rollers you clean the top of the rail with Windex. I added a large gel seat that was from an exercise bike that was killing my ass. The chain is a typical bike chain that on occasion I will fully extend add oil ( I had 3 in 1) laying about and just wipe the chain. Where the feet are is a hinge that one person can separate and reassemble to store. For sound it's the seat going back and forth, chain on spool retracting and the fan whirlling with damper to adjust force of pull. If you had a door closed you would not hear it. It's quite. The display is full of options and you can go worldwide with your stats. You can compare to the rest of the world. Last time I checked there was a 64 yr old doing 5000 meters 3.1 miles in 17 min. I was 5000 meters in 25 minutes and it was work. Adding or subtracting water is not an issue. On the rest you relax the grip and go forward chain rewinds for next pull where I think with water it better replicates the compression stroke. Hope that helps. Both of us use it. Biggest thing for me was cutting down on sugar controlling my sweet tooth is a work in progress.

Thanks for the info. Most places out of stock including the manufacturer. Just like everything else.

The water rower is a bit quieter but heavier and harder to move around. If you want the quietest go magnetic dampening.Do not even look at the ones with hydraulics.

 One option that might be available is to visit local place with rowers on display and try/compare noise.

I like C2 and mine is quieter then the  ones I used at gym, it is newer and also I have the model D which is suppose to be quieter. Except for the all out sprints it's not bad noisewise and even then but mind you I live alone in a detached dwelling.

Up here the C2 is the most commonly found rower at gyms, rowing clubs and physio places so that says a lot for them. 

Even if you don't go with a C2  go to https://www.concept2.com/indoor-rowers/training lots of info plus sign up for Workout of the Day  it will email you several workouts daily depending on what you're looking for and mixes it up every day along with  providing the programing sequence for C2 display

Best part is that it is low impact. I can't lift weights as much as I would like because of my arthritis on hands and wrists from work they swell up. Almost 3 weeks ago I went after theses nutmeg tree's that grow on the lawn from tree spore's. They poped up like crazy. Wife pulled up a few and I saw her struggling. I had a sprinkler can to wet the ground got needle nose pliers and started to get at the root to pull out. I swear there was a motherfuker pulling from the other end. I pulled about 20 was sore moved on. Next day I felt a pinched nerve from my left almost to my ear to the tips of my fingers on my left hand. Just got the tingling in my lower arm to calm down. I'm lucky that's my only problem 😃

Thanks guys I have a friend that owns a gym I’ll talk to him as well. The decent magnetics are pricey but so are the water ones. Hell I guess they are all kinda spendy. I’ll figure out and let you know what I go with. In the mean time I have bikes,  bow flex and dumbbells to keep me busy. We just got rid of our elliptical because I hated it. Stride was off for me and I couldn’t adjust without feeling a cramped stride so I never used it.

That elliptical would set my quads on fire I couldn't hang,my wife let it go when her knee started bothering her. We also walk they have a park and trails. They say walking uses 200 muscles.
