If you are replacing an existing heater, always remember to UNPLUG YOUR HEATER WHEN FILLING OR DRAINING your mattress, (see how to drain your mattress). Your waterbed conponents are to be installed in this order...


1st, heater...

2nd, safety liner...

3rd, mattress...


 Place the heater pad on the decking toward the center of the bed to heat the mattress more evenly.


The thermostat unit has a sensor made of copper or rubber and is usually a few feet in length... It's placed no closer than 12" to the heater pad... The sensor tells the thermostat when to turn on an off...


Next, install the safety liner...Take an extra moment and walk around the bed to make sure all four corners of the safety liner are neatly tucked into all four corners of the frame.


Be sure not to have any wrinkles or folds in the liner over the heater pad, because this can trap some air and could cause a hot spot!.


Next install the mattress. Take an extra moment and walk around the bed to make sure all four corners of the mattress are neatly tucked into all four corners of the frame.


Fill mattress, burp any air out and add a water conditioner to the water.


Lastly, plug heater in and set the thermostat to 90 degrees... This setting is the norm but can vary...If you fill your mattress with cold water prepare to wait two to three days to heat, so cover your mattress with a few extra blankets.


Never put hot water into your mattress because it can stretch the vinyl. It's always best to add warm water from your faucet...( you will need a faucet adapter )All the way cold and all the way hot at the same time so you can enjoy The warmth of your waterbed immediately.
