Choosing the Stability of Your Waterbed Mattress

How can I put into words the movement of a waterbed mattress?

The stability of a waterbed mattress is governed by layers of fiber that absorb and have a damping effect on the water. Logically the more fiber the less movement.

Because the amount of movement you choose is based on practicality and personal preference we offer a range of five different movements.

Would I benefit from dual waterbed mattresses or is one individual (mono) water mattress perfect for me?

First let’s talk about the principal of a waterbed and the reason that it gives unparalleled comfort.

Dual waterbed mattresses

From the simple diagram it is obvious that the displacement of water away from pressure points will result in upward pressure from the mattress being evenly distributed over a much greater area. Consequently this will give far greater comfort than any other sleeping surface.

Adjustment

The beauty of a waterbed is that it can easily be adjusted to give the maximum benefit.

For an individual it is very easy to adjust the support. Read the rest of this entry »

Choosing your waterbed mattress

This article has been written to guide customers through the process of choosing a new waterbed mattress.

You are either buying a new waterbed and need a little advice on which quality and stability to go for. Or you already have a waterbed and are buying a replacement waterbed mattress. The following information applies to both.

The first thing to decide is whether you have or will have a hardside waterbed or softside waterbed. A brief description of the difference can be found on our ‘waterbeds page’ but the mattresses are a different size so it is important to decide which one you require.

Secondly choose the size. Options appear on our water bed mattress page. Some additional special sizes can be supplied if needed at an additional charge.

Thirdly is the water mattress stability. Layers of fiber inside the waterbed mattresses absorb the water and so dampen the movement. More fiber means less movement. I could spend hours trying to describe five options of the range of movement. Instead you would be better to watch our short but informative video as a picture tells a thousand words and a video, several thousand!

 
Your fourth choice and possibly the most important is whether you choose twin waterbed mattresses? Read the rest of this entry »
