Queen Size Waterbed FAQ

How Much Does a Queen Waterbed Weigh? How should I determine if my home is compatible?

A queen size Afloat waterbed with the traditional foundation or the Space Saver platform weighs around 300 pounds per foot of width when filled with water. This means a queen size waterbed weighs around 1,500 pounds with one average-sized adult.

While this might seem heavy, it’s important to keep in mind that the weight of the bed is evenly distributed over a large area. Homes and buildings built to code and have not experienced structural damage before will have floors and ceilings that can safely support waterbeds.

The weight of a waterbed is fine for new construction but can surpass the weight-bearing capacity of the floors in older homes where remodeling may have already over-taxed the existing structure. If you are purchasing a home, we recommend having a certified building inspector check the structure to ensure it is equipped to handle the weight of a waterbed.

Can I Have a Waterbed if I Am a Renter?

It's important to note that many apartments and condominium leases restrict the use of any water-filled furniture based on concerns about possible water damage due to accidental leakage, in addition to the structural stress of the weight. We recommend checking with the building manager or property owner before setting up a waterbed in a rental unit.

What are the dimensions of Queen size waterbeds from Afloat?

All Afloat Queen size waterbeds are 59” W x 79” L.

What is the weight capacity of the Afloat Queen size waterbeds?

For the Afloat Essential and Total standard Queen waterbed mattresses, the maximum weight is 300lbs and is recommended for 1 adult only. For 2 adults, we recommend the Standard or Dual Eastern King or California King options.

Why Choose a Queen Size Waterbed Over a Traditional Queen Size Mattress?

Waterbeds shine over traditional mattresses in comfort, spinal alignment, temperature regulation, bug-immunity, and their sag-free nature. Because water has no form, it will conform to your body’s shape, eliminating pressure points that can make sleeping difficult. Further, a waterbed will never sag, a common source of mattress back pain. Because waterbed temperatures can be regulated and customized, you’ll never wake up sweating or shivering again. And if that’s not enough, our waterbeds are better priced than most mattresses of similar quality.

Waveless Water Mattress

With modern materials, this mattress is more durable than previous mattresses and the oversized mattress will be loose so when you lie down, the surface will be able to totally conform to the shape of your body better than any mattress in the market.

Available on our Total and XD models.

Heating System

The heating pad works in concert with your Afloat digital temperature controller on the outside of your bed to keep you bed within 1 degree of your preferred temperature.

Two units included for the Dual models. One unit included for Standard models.

Lower Cover Panel

The Lower Cover Panel locks into the perimeter rail system to prevent any shifting over time and allows for easier access to unzip the Stretch Knit Top Cover for machine washing.

Traditional Box Foundation

Supports the Afloat mattress assembly and locks into the rail system to prevent any shifting. The insulated system inside the foundation also reduces electrical operating costs by up to 40% compared to earlier generation waterbeds.
