Waterbed Tubes: When Do I Need Them?
This entry was posted on January 7, 2013.
The Internet was once famously described as a "series of tubes." but that phrase is more suited to describe the inside of a shallow fill softside waterbed. A softside waterbed like the Iris Softside Waterbed Mattress is a far cry from the old style free flow waterbeds, to the point where sometimes the water is barely recognizable. This is because softside waterbeds use sophisticated tubes and bladders that can include fiber and foam to stop water motion. This added material also adds to the contouring affect of the bed, creating a unique sleeping surface.
These tubes and bladders also help to circulate the water and that can help to increase blood flow throughout the body. This helps the body to relax properly and can prevent back pain.
Waterbed tubes are normally found in shallow fill softside waterbeds like the Juniper Softside Waterbed Mattress
because they give the bed a plushier feel. However, the tubes allow you to adjust the firmness level of the bed and they include fill level marks to easily gauge the desired level of water.
The best part about the waterbed tubes, however, is that you can have different one's on each side of the bed. Meaning that one spouse can have a softer or firmer side of the bed than the other spouse. Just fill the water level to the appropriate fill mark on each side.
There are two types of waterbed tubes. Free Flow Waterbed Tubes and Foam Filled Softside Waterbed Tubes. The Foam Filled Softside Waterbed Tubes add even more motion reduction from side to side and from head to toe. The combination of the foam and the water create another contouring affect to add more support during the night.
