Afloat Total

The Afloat Total waterbed mattress with a built-in insulation system that reduces energy costs by up to 40% that has not previously been available in any waterbed, ever. Afloat Total also features a lock-down foam edge, the most bullet-proof design. Also included is our $199 Afloat Total Care Kit, which gives you everything you need to install and maintain your Afloat. It’s the total package for long lasting comfort and unmatched durability.

Afloat Total Waterbed Sizes

Depending on your preferences and needs, you can get an Afloat Total waterbed in Queen, Standard Eastern King, Dual Eastern King, Standard California King, and Dual California King sizes. As discovered by the ancient Greeks, more weight requires more water for optimal buoyancy. Our Queen provides complete flotation comfort and support up to 300 pounds, while the King provides complete flotation comfort and support up to 400 pounds of combined sleeper weight. A Queen measures 59” W x 79” L, an Eastern King measures 75” W x 79” L, and a California King is 71” W x 83” L for the tallest sleepers.

  • The Afloat Total King provides complete flotation comfort and support up to 400 pounds of combined sleeper weight. The Afloat Total Queen provides complete flotation comfort and support up to 300 pounds.
  • Oversized mattress and liner (two water mattresses and a thermal divider in Dual)
  • Solid State temperature control system with digital display (two systems in Dual)

  • 20-year limited manufacturers warranty
  • FREE shipping within contiguous United States (Hawaii and Alaska require separate shipping fees)

Afloat Total Waterbed Options

Size differences aside, the choice of Dual in the King size Afloat Total waterbed gives you customized control of your individual sleep zone. A temperature control system is standard with every Afloat waterbed mattress, but the Dual versions include two control systems as well as isolated mattresses to personalize your comfort. The Dual’s added thermal insulator separates the mattresses, which means your side of the bed is always uniquely yours.

Further options include your choice of firmness. Standard firmness is a result of water fill, while our optional memory foam layer adds an extra firm experience. When it comes to your new Afloat Total waterbed’s foundation, you can choose our box foundation with 7-inch bed frame, or you can opt for our 16-inch tall Space Saver platform for under-bed storage.

More About Our Afloat Total Waterbed

The Afloat Total waterbed mattress includes our heavy-duty “Lockdown” foam perimeter rails, which extends the foam perimeter’s lifetime by years. Furthermore, we’ve added an energy-saving insulation system to better regulate your temperature while using less electricity in the process. In our tests, adding our insulation reduced energy costs by 35%. Lastly, the Afloat Total waterbed mattress includes our Afloat Total Care Kit, so you can keep the water in your mattress clean and hygienic. You won’t find these features in the Afloat Essential, which is why the Afloat Total is your optimal choice.

With Afloat’s state-of-the-art temperature controls and an advanced wave suppression system, the Afloat Total waterbed brings a classic design into the modern world. No one else has the experience and prestige of Afloat - our waterbeds are designed by the waterbed’s original inventor! The US Patent Office agreed when they awarded Mr. Hall a patent for his “reimagination” of his original waterbed.We’re confident you’ll love your Afloat Total waterbed. That’s why we offer free shipping to the contiguous United States, a 20-year limited manufacturer warranty, and a 100 night satisfaction guarantee! You have nothing to lose, and your best sleep to gain, so make the Afloat Total waterbed yours today!

  • Do you offer free shipping on all orders?

    Afloat offers FREE shipping to the 48 contiguous United States (not including Alaska and Hawaii). There will be an extra charge for shipping outside this area. After you purchase an Afloat product one of our customer service representatives will contact you to provide the additional shipping costs. If you prefer to know your estimated shipping costs prior to your purchase, please contact us at; include your name, phone number, and desired ship to address.

  • What are the different bed dimensions?
    • Standard (Eastern) King = approx. 76” W x 80’ L
    • California (Western) King = approx. 72” W x 84” L
    • Queen = approx. 60” W x 80” L
  • How much do the filled beds weigh?

    A king size Afloat with the traditional foundation or the Space Saver platform and two averaged sized adults together weighs about 1800 pounds. This weight is spread over a large area. The “floor loading” or “weight per square foot” is well within building code requirements. The weight is a lot like having 8 people sitting at a dining room table. A queen weighs 15% to 20% less than a king.

  • What sheets do I need for my Afloat waterbed?

    Great news, no special sheets are required; all you need are standard sheets in the appropriate size.

  • Are the beds pet friendly?

    The biggest problem will be trying to get your dog or cat to stay off Afloat, because cats and dogs love the soft, warm surface. Assuming your cat is not a mountain lion or Bengal tiger, claws are not a problem. Just keep Afloat covered with a mattress pad, sheets, and a comforter or bedspread. Even without bed linens a properly-filled Afloat is puncture-resistant because the vinyl surface is loose…not under surface tension. Another plus: if your pet has an “accident” the Afloat stretch-knit fabric surface is removable and machine-washable, and the vinyl water mattress surface is easy to clean. With any other type of bed, a pet “accident” can be a permanent problem.

    The Afloat is so comfortable, with no more sore shoulders and pressure points. I LOVE my Afloat bed!

    Posted by Terry D on Sep 23rd 2022

    I have been sleeping on my new Afloat waterbed for 3 months now, and I just love the gentle sensation of sleeping on water!

    I had slept on waterbeds for 20 years (mid '70s to mid '90s) and always loved it, but then waterbeds seemed to disappear as suddenly as they had come on the scene in the 1960s.

    A few months ago I was considering a new mattress, and it struck me, "whatever happened to waterbeds?" I Googled it and discovered Afloat and the NEW revival of waterbeds by the original inventor! After reading every detail on the website, I eagerly ordered my new bed and anxiously awaited its arrival.

    There are a rather overwhelming number of pieces to assemble, but once we read the instructions and watched the online tutorial videos, it really went together quite easily. The fill kit and flow meter made filling with the hose very precise.

    Then came the delicious moment of climbing into my waterbed for the first time in 20+ years! Yes! I love a waterbed as much now as ever!

    The solid foam framework is much easier and more comfortable than the old wood railing for getting in and out of bed, and the new system has a more subtle feel of gentle wave action rather than the old tidal wave effect when you climb into bed. Lol!

    It is convenient to use regular sheets rather than requiring special sheets as the old beds did, but my only complaint is that there isn't mush room to tuck the fitted sheet under the mattress because it fits so snug to the frame.

    The Afloat is so comfortable, with no more sore shoulders and pressure points. I LOVE my Afloat bed!

    Love my Afloat waterbed!

    Posted by Cheri S on Sep 1st 2022

    I slept on a waterbed for over 30 years before switching to a regular mattress a few years ago. I went through quite a few different mattresses and I never had a good night's sleep on any of them. I am a very hot sleeper, and I woke up HOT in the middle of the night, every night. Not to mention the pressure on my hips.

    I finally made the decision to go back to a waterbed, and found Afloat online. Michael G. was so helpful in answering my many questions.

    I was able to put the bed together by myself and slept on in the first night after it arrived. It was heaven! It's been a few weeks, and I have no more hip pain, and I sleep all night without waking up hot. I am so happy with this purchase and highly recommend.

    I have been using the Afloat waterbed for the last three years and its been great. No troubles getting in or out of the bed using the standard bedding that everyone is used to using. It’s a great purchase three years ago. 5 out of 5 stars for the Eastern King Afloat waterbed.

    Our Afloat waterbed is like sleeping in in a zero-gravity chair. I can’t belive how comfortable this bed is on my complete body. If I knew this waterbed was this comfortable I would have ordered ages ago. This is a must try bed it will change your sleep for the better immediately.

    Ditch your memory foam bed and get an Afloat, the best bed ever!

    Posted by Bryan C on Jun 27th 2022

    I am a side sleeper and sleeping in my expensive traditional memory foam bed left my hips and back super sore. I have also been told by my girlfriend I snore when I sleep on my back. My girlfriend finally convinced me to try a Total Dual Eastern King Afloat and since the first night I slept on it my pain has gone away. I have also been sleeping on my back and NOT snoring! Fantastic news for both of us. I know this bed is a life-saver for my body and my relationship
