What are the advantages of a waterbed?

Waterbeds offer a number of advantages for your health and comfort that traditional mattresses simply can’t provide. From better back and spine support, reduced pressure points, better hygiene and allergy benefits, Waterbeds are the simple solution.

Are Ultimate Waterbeds waveless?

Yes, our waterbed technology eliminates up to 99% of bed movement, meaning that there is less movement disturbance than traditional spring mattresses.

Do You Still Toss And Turn When Sleeping On A Waterbed?

During sleep, when blood circulation is restricted at a particular pressure point, the body automatically shifts to another position. Sleep research highlights that the body can toss and turn between 40 to 50 times in a night’s sleep, looking for that comfortable position. However, with waterbeds, pressure points are eliminated regardless of your sleep position. So, tossing and turning is significantly reduced allowing the body to recuperate during sleep.

Is sleeping on water bad for your health?

No. Sleeping on a waterbed has several health benefits as the body is contoured, and pressure points are eliminated. Consequently, this promotes better blood circulation, greater comfort and support, and ultimately a better night’s sleep.

Is sleeping on a waterbed cooler?

Yes, sleeping on a waterbed is cooler than a traditional mattress. While traditional mattresses use materials that trap heat, waterbeds are able to be temperature controlled, making it easier to fall asleep and reduce the need for air conditioning in summer.

Are waterbeds a healthier option?

Will my waterbed lose its shape?

One of the major benefits of having a waterbed as opposed to a traditional mattress is that a waterbed will never sag or lose its shape. This is because the body’s weight is evenly distributed allowing the bed to keep its form for many years. Water can’t be worn out! Additionally, our waterbeds also use strong and durable materials and are built to withstand day to day wear and tear.

Can you use a waterbed on any bed frame?

Yes! Like standard mattresses, all of our Aquafoam™ waterbed mattresses can fit existing bedroom furniture. However, in some cases, additional support may be required to be added to your existing bed frame to support the weight.

Do I need to use special water to fill my water bed?

No, normal tap water is fine for filling the mattress. Remember to add a 12 or 24-month Aqua Fusion Waterbed Conditioner Treatment to your mattress every time it is drained and refilled. For best results, we also recommend the use of Aqua Fusion Bubble Reducer treatment to prevent bubbles and gases in the mattress.

How often do I need to change the water?

You never need to change the water in your Aquafoam® mattress, unless you decide to move house or need to empty the bed for another reason. Remember to add Aqua Fusion waterbed conditioning treatment to your mattress annually. This will prevent fungus build-up and keeps the inner wall of the vinyl soft and clean.

How do you maintain a waterbed?

Along with regular cleaning, to prolong the life of your waterbed, you must condition the water at least once a year. Here at Ultimate Waterbeds, we suggest using only approved water treatments such as Aqua Fusion 12-month waterbed conditioner, which can be purchased from our showroom or our technicians when your waterbed is being installed. This helps prevent fungus and bacterial growth and keeps the vinyl supple and soft.

If your waterbed is emptied for any reason, replace the waterbed conditioning treatment immediately upon filling.
