I hope this isn't OT. My water bed mattress started to leak and I wondered
if anyone has replaced their water bed mattress with air and if they think
it's more comfortable or less. I found these three options:
Also, do I need a 24 mil thickess for almost double the cost of an 18 mil
The original ones were just balloons. My first one, I made a frame with 2 x
10's and door hinges. Later, they made them with baffles to keep the motion
down, but still only one fill hole. Then they made them with compartments,
and more than one fill hole. I have one that has about twelve round
cylinders, and you can fill each differently to get differing hardnesses.
The outside frame is a solid frame with about a 2" padding all around. The
top zips on, and is about as thick as a pillow top bed.
All in all, it is very substantially made and very expensive. And it sucks.
I have three other beds in our vacation rentals that I would rather sleep
on, and they are just common pillow tops.
I want to go to one of those specialty bed store one of these days and try
some, both the air, and that outer space foam stuff. Since I broke my back,
sleeping has not been the same. Guess I need to try one of those 90 day
trials, as they are very spendy. Worth it, if it is better, though.
Beds are about as individual as you get as per preferences.
