FAQ

The one sure way of making sure you get the right mattress is to give 'Big George' a call. He will explain everything and offer guidance when purchasing your next mattress. 

STYLES OF WATERBEDS

There are TWO (2) main types of waterbeds, the old style ‘Timber Framed’ waterbeds, and the ‘Softsided Waterbeds’.

TIMBER FRAMED BEDS

The older style timber framed waterbeds are still popular to this day. In a lot of cases, the timber framed bed becomes the main feature of your bedroom furniture, but is there to house the waterbed mattress. Some of these beds are 40 years plus in age, and still going strong today. Qualifying the floor, I have even developed timber frame waterbeds that are available on castors. You better believe it!!!!

SOFTSIDED WATERBEDS

Softsided waterbeds look like regular ensemble beds with same measurements so can be easily adapted to your current furniture setting and a large variety of storage systems can be added as well at the time. Softsider or softsider hybrids feel absolutely amazing. Available in duet/twin  and mono systems, these beds can accommodate effective personal temperature control and a spectrum of  personal comfort levels that can be altered if circumstances change.

There are quite a few regular comments that we keep hearing from our customers over and over. 

“We really miss our waterbed when we are away from home” or “we can’t wait to get home to our own waterbed”

“It’s the best thing we ever bought”

“We should of done this years ago”

“They have changed so much”

 

And the top 5 comments we hear nearly every time …..

“we would NEVER go back to an ordinary bed” 

“I am so glad I came in”

“Was meant to be”

“What a brilliant idea”

and “I had no idea waterbeds are so sophisticated”

The waterbed mattress molds to your own body shape supporting your back evenly. How comfortable are you when you are floating in the swimming pool for example? With no pressure points you can sleep in one position for much longer periods and you sleep more peacefully. Don’t forget a waterbed molds to your body unlike other beds where you mold to it. Water does not wear out or collapse.

Probably the most frequent reason for the purchase of a waterbed is to relieve back pain with temperature control and evenly distributed body pressure. All over therapeutic systemic pain relief can often be added bonus. Waterbeds are thermostatically controlled to maintain a constant temperature. There is no better feeling than jumping into a warm waterbed on a cold winter’s night. During summer, turn the heater down to keep your cool over those hot summer nights. The new carbon element slow pulse waterbed heaters we use, cost very little to run in a well insulated mattress core.

Waterbeds became mainstream 50 years ago. The bladder with water that Charles Hall designed in the 60’s has long been replaced. The new generation of waterbeds feature superior comfort and minimal motion. They are available in firm/hard If that's what you like, but the old style ‘rock ’n’ roll’ full float bladders are still around if that is your preferred comfort, and there are many, many possibilities in between the two. There has been many advancements in the last 50 years and we implore you to come in and compare as many beds as possible.

A WATERBED MATTRESS DOES NOT LOSE ITS SHAPE OVER TIME

Sleeping on a waterbed offers the best support of any bed on the market and are so durable that the bed will feel exactly the same 5 years down the track as to the day you bought it, whereas other mattresses will sag and comfort and support will decline over a relatively short space of time.

Waterbeds also offer ‘contour pressure relief’ and offer ‘all over even support’. Water does not collapse over time and if you can come into our showroom and find your perfect mattress, you can be assured that it will never go out of shape.

We can also customize the mattress for your individual needs. We can add support in strategic areas inside the mattress. We can strengthen areas like the lumbar region, and we can also make inbuilt supports for the head, feet and anywhere in between. Or a combination of all.

If you have any special needs, then speak to us over the phone, or in store and we can go through all the options that may be available to you.

FULL BODY AND BACK SUPPORT WITH LITTLE TO NO PRESSURE POINTS

The dynamics of sleeping on a regular innerspring mattress mean that there is significant pressure points between your body and the bed. Most notably in the shoulders, back and pelvis. With fewer pressure points, there is less tossing and turning which results in a more restful and quality sleep. We when we sleep well we wake up refreshed and ready to face the new day.

HYGIENIC SLEEPING SURFACE

Many asthma sufferers prefer the hygienic qualities the waterbeds offer. The washable covers and wipe over mattresses greatly benefit those with asthma and allergies. Waterbeds are wonderful for people who suffer from asthma, as having a hygienic bed to sleep on free from dust mites and dust helps improve respiratory ailments.

CONTROLLABLE TEMPERATURE

One of the biggest benefits of waterbeds is the wonderful temperature control. There is nothing better than jumping into a warm waterbed on a cold winters nights. Conversely, in summer, there is nothing better than jumping into a cooler bed to help soothe the harsh summers we have in Australia.

BENEFITS OF SLEEPING ON A WATERBED

Most people are aware of the importance of eating sensibly and getting regular exercise for general good health. And yet few of us give much thought to our quality of sleep. We believe that sleep, or the lack of it, has a huge effect on health and our ability to function well through the day. The more we have researched into sleep and sleep related problems, the more we are convinced that a modern waterbed offers by far the best option for regular, quality sleep.

Most people place a low priority on their beds. It is only when their health or work suffers that they look to spend more on a ‘good quality bed’. Those who fail to find the right bed resign themselves to being poor sleepers.

The people who do come into our showroom are blown away when they see all the different options that are available. Nearly all of those customers say that they ‘would never go back to an ordinary bed’.

IMAGINE

•If your bed could be made to fit you perfectly so that whatever your shape, size or weight, it molded like a glove.

•If magically you could lose the pressure points from your hips and shoulders (but still have good support to your lower back) enabling you to stay in your most comfortable sleeping position without tossing and turning.

•If you could maintain your ideal sleeping temperature summer or winter.

•If you could sleep on an aired, clean bed, free of dust, dust mites and “body fluids”.

•And finally if the bed stayed clean, comfortable and supportive year after year so that your quality of sleep remained unchanged even after 10 years.

You have just imagined a modern waterbed.

ADD TO THIS THE MEDICAL BENEFITS

•The low pressure points, all over even support, and comfortable sleeping temperature benefit most medical conditions.

•Waterbeds allow muscles to relax, improve blood circulation, alleviating stiffness to the joints and back. Perfect for arthritis and rheumatism sufferers and those with general back pain.

•Only water moulds to your shape without pressure points, giving even support and comfort to the entire body whatever your size or shape.

•The washable covers and wipe over mattresses greatly benefit those with asthma and allergies. Waterbeds are wonderful for people who suffer from asthma, as having a hygienic bed to sleep on free from dust mites and dust helps improve respiratory ailments.

•Getting into a bed that is immediately comfortable and at the right temperature ensures that you get off to sleep quickly; and with far less turning in bed, you get a more even nights sleep. Good news for insomniacs.

•Many osteopaths, chiropractors and physiotherapists who have a working knowledge of waterbeds, recommend waterbeds, (especially those trained abroad where waterbeds are commonplace).

•Whether sleep is a problem or you are just looking for the best sleep system, try one of our beds, You will know in the first few seconds that it is the bed for you. And if you buy, you will never want to sleep on anything else!
