A waterbed supports your spine and the muscles in your back by
adapting to the shape of your body. The medium, water, is displaced
rather than compressed as it is in other bedding types. The mattress
doesn?t sag, but precisely and immediately adapts to the position of
your body; weight and build are unimportant, and the mattress stays as
comfortable as the first day it was bought.
Low contact pressure and relaxing heat support your back, joints and vital functions.
A waterbed encourages good blood circulation with its full body support
and therapeutic warmth. A perfect and healthy night?s sleep.
How so I keep the water fresh?
When you first fill your water mattress with fresh water, a water
preservative is added to keep the water free of germs. As you don?t need
to change the water unless you move home and have to dismantle and
reassemble your bed, the preservative is added once a year.
Will I feel wave movements in my waterbed?
It depends on whether you want to. Some people like being slowly rocked
to sleep,while others prefer perfect peace from their waterbed, and
don?t want to feel any wave movements.
People?s needs are just as individual as people themselves: some
prefer the rocking movement of the waves when they move their bodies,
and others don?t .To match your individual sleeping comfort needs, you
can choose from a range of 13 different cushioning levels with
additional lumbar support.
Will my ceiling be ruined if the waterbed leaks?
Waterbed mattresses are extremely tough, durable and puncture
resistant unless they are deliberately targeted with a very sharp or
very pointed instrument. In the unlikely event this did happen, the
water would be contained within the bed by a separate outer waterproof
safety layer, preventing any damage to the bed's surroundings.
Do I need my bedroom floor reinforced to take the weight?
No. Waterbeds have a specially designed base that spreads the
weight of the bed evenly across the floor. The waterbed weighs no more
than approximately six people. We have successfully installed more than
three thousand waterbeds in total.
Will they be very cold unless I add hot water all the time?
You don't need to add hot water, as all our waterbeds are
temperature controlled. In winter, you can keep them warm, but in
summer, on the few hot nights we get in the UK, the controller can be
turned down to give you a cool bed. If you have dual mattresses they can
be set at different temperatures if one partner prefers a hotter bed.
Will a waterbed help me sleep?
A waterbed works by distributing body weight evenly over the parts
of the body that are in contact with the bed. This eliminates pressure.
The waterbed moulds itself around your body, providing the perfect-fit
support that is uniquely right for you. Not only do you get better sleep
at night, but your body is better prepared for the day ahead.
Could my waterbed burst?
Not at all. Waterbeds are not pressurised like an airbed, they would not be able to burst.
What happens if my children jump on the bed?
The waterbed is so durable; it can take several children jumping on
it at any one time. It is more likely that a normal bed would break
from children jumping on it than a waterbed because a normal bed has
breakable springs. In some nurseries, they use waterbeds to function as
therapeutic relaxation devices for the children.
A question of hygiene
The hygienic benefits of a water bed are many: particles of skin do
not disappear into the mattress the mattress,as is the case with legacy
beds, but remain on the surface of the water mattress where they can be
wiped off at any time.
House dust mites and mite excrement cannot live on the surface of the waterbed andyou can be sure of an allergy-free sleep.
The human body exudes about half a litre of moisture into the bed every
night. This adds up to over 1000 litres in six years, and all of this
seeps into a legacy mattress. In case of a waterbed, the moisture that
collects in the mattress cover evaporates due to rising warmth. The
easily removable textile covers on your waterbed are washable.
