How Do I Purchase a Softside Replacement Mattress?
The first thing when choosing a softside waterbed replacement mattress is figuring out what size bed you have currently, then how tall the mattress is, and finally what type of foam walls you have.
First measure the outside dimensions of your mattress. If you have foundations then just measure the size of your foundations.
These are all approximate sizes:
Twin 39x75 inches
Full 54x75 inches
Queen 60x80 inches
King is 76x80 inches
California King is 72x84 inches
Then measure the height of your foam rails (not the slope wall, the actual height of your side rails).
Then check to see if you have slope walls or straight walls.
You now have completed the first part of choosing your softside replacement mattress, and you should know the size and height of your foam walls, and also if you have straight walls or slope walls.
If you are still not sure then please call us at 800-630-5889, even on evenings and weekends. We are always available to answer any and all of your questions, to make your purchase easier.
Now you must decide if you want a single softside replacement mattress or dual softside replacement mattress and if you want full wave, semi wave, waveless, ultra-firm or ultra waveless.
A brief description of considerations for these aforementioned options:
A single waterbed mattress allows for only one type of firmness level. You will also feel the other person’s wave when sleeping with someone else. Dual waterbed mattresses allow for separate firmness levels and almost completely remove the effects of sleeping with another individual.
You can actually call us and order different wave actions for each side of your mattress if you so choose. Additionally, with dual waterbed mattresses you can also have separate heaters so each partner can set their own temperature level.
As far as choosing the appropriate waterbed wave reduction and firmness, try and use the description of each mattress listed on this site, it will be helpful.
