How long do waterbeds last?

Unlike a traditional mattress, a waterbed does not have springs that can break down. The average life span of a waterbed mattress is 12- 15 years, but we have seen them last longer than 30 years. We highly recommend using waterbed conditioner which keeps the water clean and fresh and helps treat the interior of the waterbed mattress. Unless the waterbed mattress is punctured, which is highly unlikely, the mattress will keep providing wonderful back support for many years.

Heating the waterbed mattress has no effect on life expectancy either. Whether you keep the temperature of the bed at 70 or 95 degrees, it does not effect the life expectancy of the bed whatsoever. Also the amount of water that you put in the mattress will also have very little impact on the  waterbed mattresses longevity.

When you need to move your waterbed I highly recommend that you call a professional to discuss what you need to do to properly drain and protect the waterbed mattress during the move. Its not hard but a little practical advise is worth its weight in gold. I recommend renting an electric pump from a tool rental store to ensure that the insides of the mattress are not destroyed in the draining process. If you follow a few simple instructions your mattress will be good as new after you complete the move.
