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.

Key Features

  • 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)
  • Stretch-knit washable cover
  • Afloat wave suppression and support system
  • Smooth edge platform deck
  • Heavy-duty “Lockdown” foam perimeter rails
  • Energy saving insulation system
  • Metal bed frame included
  • Care kit (25’ kink-resistant hose, air extractor, fill & drain kit, mattress carrier, two 8 oz. water conditioners, fill meter, alignment pins, mattress carrier, and patch kit)
  • 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.

    You guys rock and have a customer for life!

    Posted by Michael Giesler on Jun 23rd 2022

    My name is Michael, I’m a 38 year old heavy equipment mechanic in Hawaii. My job is pretty hard on my body. I’m always sore and a side sleeper with pressure point problems. On an expensive name brand medium firm memory foam mattress I’d often wake up in more pain than I had before I went to bed. Even my teeth were sore from biting down hard in my sleep. I knew I needed to make a radical change or see a doctor. I asked myself when was the last time you really slept soundly? I had to really think back! I laughed to myself and said it was my waterbed back in the late 90’s early 2000’s. I thought to myself “if only waterbed’s were still available I’d probably try one again”. I kid you not a few days later I was on social media and in a group they were discussing waterbeds. Then I pulled up google and YouTube and started searching. I came across The Afloat Waterbed. I was so excited to see they offer shipping to Hawaii setup through a freight forwarding company. I placed my order on their website and within 1 minute, I kid you not. I received a call from Kim who works for Afloat and she was an absolutely wonderful, kind person to work with getting me setup with everything I needed. We talked for quite awhile (it was like talking to a friend) and both agreed a waterbed will be very good at easing my pain and giving me proper support. Kim got the order shipped for free to the freight forwarder from their factory. I just had to pay for the second leg of the shipping by ship to Hawaii. (It was very reasonably priced so that was nice) It took some time to arrive in Hawaii. During that process Kim checked in and kept an eye on every step of the delivery. Bed arrived at my door in perfect condition and the build quality was top notch! It was easy to assemble and fill thanks to the kit that came with the Total model bed I ordered. This thing is so much nicer than my old waterbed from the 90’s I had (I highly recommend the firm mattress pad). I feel like I’m 10 years younger. I no longer have any pain and I’m sleeping deeper and more sound. I wake up feeling refreshed with much more energy. Being a side sleeper this bed has changed my life for the better. I’ll never go back to a traditional mattress. The people at Afloat treat you like family and actually have an amazing product. I’m so happy, I’m more productive now and actually look forward to going to bed at night and getting a good night's sleep. Thank you Afloat and your team for making this happen all the way out here in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. You guys rock and have a customer for life!

    We LOVE our Afloat king bed.

    Posted by Vicky G on May 18th 2022

    We LOVE our Afloat king bed. It’s so comfortable that I miss it terribly when I travel. Regular sheets fit and it looks just like a normal bed. The customer service is the best, 5 stars! We’ve only needed them when our questions were due to too many family members trying to be the boss. Get one, you won’t regret it!

    Posted by Niklaus Chambers on Apr 4th 2022

    My Afloat waterbed it great. It's very comfortable. The set up is pretty straight forward and doesn't take too long. I had an issue with the zipper handle but contacted the company and Kim got it taken care of promptly and efficiently. I highly recommend the AFLOAT waterbed.

    Rest and recovery optimized

    Posted by Dean Karnazes on Mar 26th 2022

    I am an athlete, and nothing is more important than rest and recovery. When I started sleeping on an Afloat Waterbed I noticed an improvement in sleep quality. I attribute this to 1) Reduced pressure points 2) Precise temperature control 3) Better spinal alignment. Waking refreshed and rejuvenated is such a delight! I couldn’t be more pleased.

    Dual Eastern King

    Posted by Sharon McNutt on Apr 20th 2021

    We love our new afloat waterbed. I don’t toss and turn during the night anymore. I used to wake up stiff and sore with pain in my hip and shoulder but not anymore! And love the temperature control. My husband and I can set our own temperature for comfort. I am sleeping deeper than I ever have before. It’s awesome!

    Dual Eastern King

    Posted by Bob Lesko on Apr 20th 2021

    If you Google the term – Customer Service- your picture appears and your name is in the definition. Afloat is fortunate to have you on their team. Considering the issues we had encountered, you and the Afloat folks really shined. I do love my bed. I don’t see it as a bed , I see it as an everyday therapy. Having had waterbeds, I cant think of anything that is missing. ( I like the space saver function, if the frame were only an inch or 4 taller , a standard tote would slide easily underneath and the soft sides would accommodate entry and exit.) I am sure that the comfort , rest, and relaxation with my Afloat bed will continue for the rest of my days. Best purchase I made in many, many years!
    Thank you all again and I hope to steer folks your way.-Bob Lesko
