Moving a waterbed
The Quatro water
mattresses, that are available with your 4D-Comfort system, can be disassembled into manageable
parts that fit in a normal vehicle. The whole system can be moved by just 1 person. The system can
also be built without a single screw.
It is important, however, to follow the manufacturers instructions when emptying as well as
filling the water mattress. You will need a water pump (to empty the bed) and a clean hose. Most
waterbed dealers, however, do offer a removal service.
We recommend you to consult the waterbed supplier from whom you have purchased your mattressb
- most of the dealers have a moving service - or a specialized service centre. In case you
prefer to move the waterbed yourself, you should keep the following intructions in mind.
How do I empty a 4D-Comfort water mattress safely?
Emptying a 4D-water mattress is no rocket science, but there are a
few things you should pay attention to in order to avoid any damage to the watermattress, or other
Please follow these steps :
- Always unplug the waterbed heater.
- Always use a powerful garden pump to empty the water mattress. The more water you can remove,
the better. Some dealers will rent out pumps. NEVER empty the water mattress by siphoning it
( by sucking the hose) that way you will not be able to remove sufficient water.
NEVER lift the water mattress before it is nearly
empty, otherwise the stabilisation layers might shift and it will be impossible to make the
waterbed as comfortable as before. Connect the hose to the valve of the 4D-Comfort mattress. Use
the adapter that came with the water mattress. Make sure as little as possible air enters the
mattress when opening the cap.
Turn on the pump and start emptying the mattress. Leave the
mattress lying flat. DO NOT attempt to speed up the emptying process, by lifting one or more
corners of the mattress. Keep the pump running until all the water is extracted from the
- Disconnect the hose and close the cap as quick as you can to avoid any air being suck into the
mattress again. The mattress should feel quite firm. If it still feels as if there is still some
water left in the container, the mattress is not sufficiently emptied. Never lift a corner of the
mattress, before the stabilization layers are vacuum and firm.
- Fold up the mattress carefully as follows : firstly fold the foot and head end towards the
middle part, creating a tripple layer fold. Then fold the water mattress along its width (ending up
with 6 layers).
- Lift the water mattress from its container and keep it in a dry and clean area away from the
light. Make sure not to leave the water mattress in an area where sharp objects could be lying
around that could damage the mattres Never leave a mattress lying around empty for more than
3 months. A water mattress is more prone to wear and tear when it is stored than when it is
In case you own a QUATRO waterbed the remaining parts of your waterbed can easily be
disassembled into manageable parts that fit in a regular car. The whole system can be moved by one
person. The system can also be assembled again without the need for any screws.
