Any requirements of sheets between body and mattress?

From my experience of palliative care, put a plastic or rubber sheet on top of the wave mattress and then a sheepkin/shearling pad under the buttocks and then a normal sheet. Even another synthetic comforter is good. Keep and eye out for bed sores as you can still get them.

How do i get the alarm to stop and what is making it go off?

Having the same problem. Pressing alarm mute only works for 5 minutes. The bed has pressure sensors so it knows if a patient has fallen out of bed, alerting a care giver. It may have something to do with those sensors. Try adjusting the inflation weight setting. Also, too many sheets/blankets on the mattress CAN give it a false pressure reading. Try both adjusting the weight AND removing unnecessary weight from the bed.

Do air mattresses deflate throughout the night?

When air mattresses first came out, deflating was a major issue. In the last ten years or so, all air mattresses built don't have that problem unless they have a puncture somewhere.

Should I buy a firm or a soft mattress?

The comfort level of a mattress changes in each and every person. I personally prefer the firm mattress because it makes cures my back aches and make them go away in the morning after.

It is very important that when you go to the store to buy a new mattress you should lay down and really exam if it is comfortable enough for you and if it suit you right.

I cannot find a manual for a blue magic super pump

See the instructions near the bottom of this web page: (picture at the top of pasted instuctions on th link)

  1. IMPORTANT! - Unplug waterbed heater for safety
  2. Remove cap and seal and put aside in safe place.
  3. Remove any excess air from mattress - slide forearm or broom handle from the head of the bed toward the fill hole to move air pocket
  4. Attach the heavy duty hose to the hose valve coupling, connect to the waterbed mattress and other end to the pump intake side. Be sure to include O-rings. Gently push the coupling deep into the mattress.
  5. Attach garden hose to the discharge side of the pump, this hose goes to a tub, or a deep sink.
  6. Plug in the pump. When it starts it should have a low whirring sound, not a high whiny one. If water is not pumping immediately unplug the motor and check hose connections for tightness, verify there is no air in the mattress.
  7. As the pump removes the water, be sure the hose valve coupling at the mattress is pushed down in the mattress to maintain suction. Heavy phone books or other like items will help maintain proper position deep in the mattress.
  8. Keep pumping the water out and continuing to maintain the hose valve coupling position low in the mattress so it can keep pumping.
  9. Do not leave the pump or the area until finished. A dry pump can burn up.
  10. When the mattress is part way empty, you can place pillows under it at the head to help the water run downhill towards the hose valve coupling.
  11. Continue pumping until water flow stops or pump changes sound. The more water you get out, the easier your mattress will be to handle.
  12. If you are satisfied you have got as much water out as you can, remove the hose valve coupling and quickly replace the mattress seal and screw the cap on.
  13. If the mattress is to be stored for a period of time, pour in a large bottle of waterbed conditioner into the mattress before you cap and seal the mattress.
  14. We recommend rolling up the mattress from the head to the foot and carefully sliding one end into a wardrobe box. Another wardrobe box can be worked over the top of the mattress. Work one box into the other and seal both ends and tape the boxes together in the middle. You can now safely move the mattress.
  15. If you don't get enough water out, the fiber layers can easily slide out of position during moving and you may not be able to get them back into position when you fill the bed.
