It is important to remove any noisy air pockets or bubbles from your waterbed mattress. Firstly the air pockets make an irritating sploshing noise when you turn over in bed. Secondly the air creates a tension in the vinyl which reduces the comfort. And thirdly the air gap is a breeding ground for bacteria, moist, dark and warm. We have created a video to show you the easiest way to remove the air from your waterbed mattress, although it is not a Hollywood production it is informative.
It is worth knowing that it is not actually air, but gas generated from a bacteria in the water. We supply an 8oz bottle of bubble stop often referred to as bubble gone. This should neutralise the bacteria and prevent the formation of the gas for approximately one year. Our own experience over many years is that this is successful in most cases. If you are one of the very few that find the bubble stop does not work. The alternative is to empty the water mattress and refill it.
