How to locate a leak in a waterbed and repair it


Finding the source of a leak in your waterbed may not always be easy. Some punctures can be very small (some even the size of a pin), making it difficult to find. The best place to start is by wiping the entire mattress dry. Before going any further, make sure that your heater is unplugged. First try to locate the leak without draining the bed. Place paper towels around the perimeter of your bed as well as around the corners and bottom seams. Then lay on your bed for a minute or two to apply some pressure. Check the paper you laid down to help diagnose the location of the leak. If this method does not work, you may have to drain your mattress. Refill the mattress with air and sit on it. Using a spray bottle filled with water and dish soap spray the suspected areas. You will see bubbles appear in the area where the hole is located.


Once you have located the location of the leak, you can now repair it. You will need a vinyl repair kit - most waterbed mattresses are sold with one, if not I will leave you a link so that you can purchase one online. For a small pin-size hole, you will only need a very small patch. Try to cut either a round/oval shaped patch as corners usually lift. Apply some adhesive to both the patch and the mattress and attach. You should let the patch dry for a minimum of two hours before putting any pressure on it.

Can you find and seal a slow leak?


Finding the leak is the fun part as what you need to do is pump up the mattress and wipe an area with very soapy water to make bubbles at the leak site and do that until you find the leak
Then depending on where the leak is the repair is easy to very difficult
Easy will be any flatish surface to difficult a edge or seam leak

How to inflate when camping with no electricity


Purchase a manual pump or a 12 volt pump that plugs into your cigarette lighter. Make sure your cigarette lighter works before you leave on your trip. There are also battery operated pumps.

My Sealy Right Touch air mattress won't stay inflated. How do I fix it?


Hi - we originally supplied the pump for Sealy and can sell you a replacement pump that will connect directly to your air mattress. The best way to confirm that it is the pump that leaks and not the air chamber is by switching the hoses at the pump. If the same side leaks it is the air chamber that leaks or the hose. If the opposite side leaks then it is the pump that leaks. Ferdinand 905 451 7243

How often should I turn/rotate my memory foam mattress?


Memory foam mattresses should not be flipped at all - they only have memory foam on one side.
