Softside Waterbed Systems

Softside waterbeds come with the comfort, support and heat of a wood frame waterbed but with the look of a regular mattress. The wood frame has been replaced with a "softside" that makes it easy to get into and out of bed. No more wood frame to crawl over! Softside waterbeds provide complete full body support from head to toe with no pressure points with the added value of therapeutic heat. You could say they're like a regular bed with water inside. They're made in conventional sizes so you can use the sheets and comforters you already have and use your existing headboard and footboard saving your bedroom set.

Click here to see photos of our softside waterbeds that we have adapted to a variety of bed frames.

MATTRESS PROTECTORS are highly recommended!

You migh want to try our DREAMFIT SHEETS, too.

SHIPPING: Our Softside Waterbeds can be shipped to you via UPS Freight from the manufacturer. We strongly recommend that if you live two or three hours from the store that you make the drive so you can see, feel and lie down on all of our different Softside models in order to select the one that’s best for you. Drive your pickup truck and if you decide to purchase, you can take it with you and save the shipping costs!

If it's not possible for you come to the store, just give me a call at (706) 543-4323 and I’ll be more than happy to assist you in putting a Softside System together. The manufacturer will ship in three to five business days and it will then take three to five more business days for UPS Freight to deliver it to you. Please note that COVID 19 may have an effect on normal time frames.

 Oak Platform Beds With Six Drawer Pedestal Bases


Our Oak Platform Beds With Six Drawer Pedestal Bases can be used with any of our Softside Waterbeds or any other type of mattress. They can be used as a stand alone bed platform without a headboard or with your current headboard. You can also chose from one of our many matching oak headboards, too.

At 14 inches tall and used with a low profile foundation and Softside mattress, the total height is around 27 inches which is about the right height for most people. You can opt for a regular foundation to lift the mattress height another four and a half inches but that's getting pretty tall to climb into.

The Extreme Softside Waterbed Frame

Extreme Frame Specifications: The Extreme Heavy-Duty Bedframe Frame by W. Silver Products is made of high carbon re-manufactured railroad steel to provide extra strength and stability for your Softside Waterbed. It has a total of nine, glide equiped, steel legs and a two inch center support that provide the extra support needed for a waterbed and spreads the weight evenly over the floor. The Extreme can also be used with any mattress set to prevent the boxspring or foundation from sagging and causing your mattress to sag in the middle. Oversized headboard brackets will allow most any headboard to be attached to the frame and the frame height, 7 1/2 inches, is the same as a regular bed. Assembly is quick and easy with no tools required!

W. Silver Products is a family owned company located in El Passo, Texas. They own a steel mill that uses USA railroad track to make our Softside bedframes and they're the only bed frame company in the USA that owns their own steel mill ensuring quality control from design to the finished product.

One Frame adjusts to all size beds: Twin / Full / Queen / King / California King

Versaleg Bedlegs

Our environmentally friendly Versalegs are an innovative, inexpensive, modern alternative to the conventional metal bedframe and are now fabricated from 100% recycled materials!

Choose from 4 simple to assemble heights: 5", 7", or 10".  The base plate of the Versaleg System easily attaches to the bottom of your box spring or foundation using a power screwdriver and four screws per base plate. Then you simply screw the bed leg into the threaded area of the base plate.

Versaleg Bedlegs

The Versaleg Bedlegs are an ideal support system for softside waterbeds especially when using a conventional headboard with a footboard and siderails. King and Queen sets have twelve legs that easily install underneath the foundation of a Softside Waterbed and distributing weight evenly like our steel frames with nine legs. We stock them in three heights; 5", 7" and 10" with the 10" being the most popular. Most regular beds are on a 7" metal frame so the 10" height raises the bed by three inches..

Versaleg bed leg support system

$149.95 King/Queen sets in all heights. Includes 12 legs with screws. Stocked in 5", 7" & 10 inch heights.

$19.95 Two Headboard Attachment Brackets.

Attach base plate to foundation Screw bed legs into base plate 12 legs for maximum support

Softside Watermattresses

MADE IN AMERICA

Our softside watermattresses are Made In America by US Watermattress from American Vinyl. They are cut to fit all of our US Wattermattress Softside Systems but can be used as replacement mattresses for other brands. We know they fit the Sensa Softsides that we sold previously but not the Vylanta Softsides that we had before that. They will fit other brands, too, but none with a shallow fill (less than 7 inches) or straight sides on the inside of the foam rails. They are designed to fit inside slanted foam rails that have a 3 inch wide top (A), 5 inch wide base (B) and 7 inch exterior height (C). See the diagram of our slanted foam side rails.  (click image of diagram to see larger view)

Each United States Watermattress combines good old-fashioned American know-how with the best in sleep technology, superior quality and at an affordable price. Well into it's fourth decade, United States Watermattress has evolved into one of America's most reliable waterbed manufacturer's.

 

KEY FEATURES OF US SOFTSIDE WATERMATTRESSES

  ·Seam on the bottom of bed is recessed two inches for less stress.
 
  ·Overcut mattress tops release pressure on the seams, too.
 
  ·Trimilate Dura Heat black bottom for maximum heat transfer.
 
  ·Heavy Duty (22 mill) black waterbed vinyl throughout.
 
  ·L-corner construction with 2 1/2 inch reinforced corners.
 
  ·Motion reducing fiber is 1.2 oz of Dupont fiber per layer.

 

SHIPPING: We stock all of the Softside Mattresses in the sizes as listed below and can usually ship them UPS the same day if ordered by 2:00 of any weekday. If you order something else along with the mattress, like a heater and conditioner, we can get them in the same box making them ship practically free. I would prefer that you come to the store so you can try out several Softside Watermattresses in order to make the best decision but if that’s not possible, call me at (706) 543-4323 and I’ll be glad to help you put an order together and get it shipped to you quickly.

Our Softside Waterbeds use conventional size sheets, not waterbed sheets, like you probably already have but wouldn't it be nice to have a new set of sheets along with a new Softside Waterbed? Especially ones that are GUARANTEED TO FIT, GUARANTEED TO STAY ON and sleep like a dream!

They are on display in the store so you can see how well they fit before you buy them and in stock so you can take a set home with you.
