1) Water bed Cost
We spend more money in Thailand on sleeping pills and other sleep inducing remedies than we do on beds. You spend at least one third of the day in your bed. No other furniture you use so extensively.
2) Ergonomic Support
There is no other sleep system that provides the total body support, pressure reduced comfort, hygiene and durability of a water bed.
There are more myths and misconceptions about water beds than any other type of bed. The myths include that water beds make you seasick, or that they are expensive, or that they puncture easily, or that they are too heavy for Thai homes. All of those are wrong!
All water beds have a built in vinyl safety liner so that if you puncture the vinyl water mattress, any spill will be contained in the liner to prevent it from leaking onto the floor. Leaks are rare. If required, a repair kit specifically designed to mend vinyl water bed punctures is available from us. Once repaired, the mattress will continue to be fully usable for the rest of its natural life.
5) Water bed History
The water bed has come a long way in 3000 years, from the Persians original idea of sleeping on sun-warmed goatskin water bags to today’s sophisticated floatation systems
6) Sleep Disturbance
Approximately 30% of all people suffer some form of sleep disturbance. On a standard bed, most people change position about 60 times a night to relieve uncomfortable pressure points. The total body support of a water bed minimizes this pressure and the need to toss and turn.
7) Sleeping on a Water bed
The sensation of sleeping on a water bed is very soothing, relaxing and conductive to good sleep. Water beds can be as stable as conventional beds. Dupont water beds are designed to insulate the movement of the sleeper, so his partner will not feel any more motion as on a conventional mattress.
Medical studies have shown that the equal distribution of body weight, as on a water bed, benefits everybody, especially those suffering from arthritis and rheumatism.
9) Backache Relief
At one time or another during our lives, we nearly all suffer some form of back pain
10) Therapeutic Heat
One of the most effective means of relieving pain and relaxing back muscles is the application of heat. Most water beds are heated. It is this natural warmth and the muscle relaxing comfort that make water bed indispensable to their owners.
Water beds are very hygienic. The vinyl mattress helps to prevent a build up of dust or mites. The cleanliness of water beds is a boon for sufferers of asthma or allergies
12) Life Span
Water beds are very durable. The normal life of a well maintained vinyl water mattress is approximately 20 – 30 years.
13) Sagging Water beds?
Water beds never sag. That means you will never need to turn the mattress or end up putting a board underneath it. Even a decade later the bed is as comfortable and supportive as the first night you use it. Overall, an excellent investment
14) It Won’t Burst
Developments in vinyl production and their supporting frames mean that today’s water beds are free from any internal pressure, i.e. they can never burst. In fact, you can open the fill valve of a full water bed, sit on the mattress and no water will spill from it. Imagine the vinyl simply as a skin around the water. The vinyl helps the water to support your body weight while it ensures you remain dry and comfortable.
15) Water bed Installation
Water beds are nearly always installed by your supplier. Our recommendation would be to have your water bed professionally installed in your home. Please do also note that only beds installed and serviced by our trained personnel are granted our warranty.
16) Water bed Maintenance
After installation the only maintenance required is the addition of a special water conditioner every six months. The conditioner helps to maintain the suppleness of the vinyl. Regular wiping of the vinyl mattress with an approved vinyl cleaner is also recommended.
17) Do you have to change the waterbed water? No. if conditioner has been applied regularly, e.g. one bottle conditioner per mattress per year.
18) What will happen if you haven’t care for your waterbed? Worst thing that will happen is your mattress will get a smell that may not be able to remove. This case your need to take water out of your bed and refill water in the mattress as well as conditioners.
