Re: Why did waterbeds go out of style
Back in the '90's we had a traditional water bed where, whenever I would get out of bed the Tsunami would blast her off the other side...then they came out with the 90% reduction water bed where I could get up and there was virtually no motion at all...then finally they devoloped the water mattress...this one is the best...there are individual water pockets, with a nice pillow top mattress on top with separate temperature and firmness controls...


Yeah, go figure I'm a bed expert...

The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!

Re: Why did waterbeds go out of style
The average American is 475 lbs heavier than in the 1970's.

As more and more waterbeds blew out, the Industry had to come up with stronger and more resilient plastic bladders.

Unfortunately, the science hasn't kept pace with the heavier weights of the bed's users.

As the makers could no longer insure themselves against lawsuits from fat drowning victims, they went out of business.

That's why waterbeds are no more.

Re: Why did waterbeds go out of style
For some peole (specially the ones who suffer Arthritis) water beds are not the best, because it doesn't matter what kind of insultation is used, the humidity made their condition worse.

Personally, I don't like the idea of spending hours on stagnant water. It just doesn't sound right.

Re: Why did waterbeds go out of style
Not why they went out of style but I will tell my story any way.
It was 1977 when I got my first waterbed. Just a big blue vinyl bag.
The box advised me to use a frame but it didn"t say USE A FRAME OR Else!
I filled it with water and it sat there vibrating like a big amoeba.
My girl and I went to sleep that night after giving it a good wave making workout.
Around three in the morning I woke up drownding.
The entire seam at the bottom had split open...water hit the wall and washed back over us like a tsunami!
I leaped up and grabed the bag and lifted it op to prevent all the water from rushing out.
Three quarters of it was already gone...but now I'm stuck holding the rest in...bare ass naked by the way.
My girlfriend called the fire department. they came with a fire hose and syphoned the rest of the water out the window.
They had a good laugh at the half drowned hippies and the bare asses.

I haven't slept on one since!

Re: Why did waterbeds go out of style
I ran an American Waterbeds store in Kansas City for years.
I still have my wood frame with a waveless mattress with lumbar support.

I love it..best bed ever,,but you must have the right mattress for your body weight and filled right.

Free flow ( Bag of Water ) mattress suck for your back.
And so do the shallow fill and tube style soft sides.

The bad ones gave the industry a bad name.
