RE: Need help in chosing a new bed
We have tried air mattresses, waterbed mattresses, sleep number mattresses, regular plain-vanilla mattresses, and now we're on a memory foam mattress.

But my favorite of all? A 25 year old couch that has been beaten all to heck. I had occasion to crash on it (with mask of course) one night awhile back and I loved it. No achy hip. No achy knees. No achy back. No achy nothin! It was great.

So now I sleep in our nice expensive memory foam bed sometimes until I can't stand it anymore. Then off to the couch I go to sink into a puddle of 25 year old fluff. It's great. It's also a pain in the neck to have to move my machine all the time. For that reason, guess what my next acquisition is going to be... Yep, you're right, a two person 25 year old couch for the bedroom. My wife thinks I'm nuts. But, as we all know, I have established that that is not the case.

Why not just buy another APAP, hide it behind the couch so The Puppies can't chew it and sleep on the couch in the living room?

RE: Need help in chosing a new bed
I bought a Latex foam mattress from [commericial URL removed per Apnea Board rules. Just tell folks you got it from "sleepez", but don't list the web address.] I've had it now for about 6 years and it is by far the best mattress I've ever owned. I got the full 13" one which is four layers of latex foam. Great bed.

RE: Need help in chosing a new bed
Our bed is a Large WATERBED King (doesn't exactly fit CA king or whatever).

Waterbed is now using (9) tubes for water -- you can fill each of the tubes to a different amount and get ANY combination of firmness you require.

On top of that is 1 inch (2.5cm) of MEMORY FOAM.

On top of that is the Pillow Top mattress cover[b].

1200 count cotton or model sheets.

[b]Sleeps better than ANY bed I have ever seen anywhere


(However, never tried a bead air bed. The things use air to keep really find grain plastic balls moving gentely.)

RE: Need help in chosing a new bed
Mattresses are like CPAP masks. Everyone has different needs, likes, and dislikes in a mattress. Maybe that is why there are so many on the market. Or maybe there are so many on the market because of the huge profit margin involved with mattresses.

Well, maybe everyone else. But not me. My needs, likes, and dislikes are the same.

It's quite possible that you're right and what you learned from me is wrong. Too-funny

Laws vary from state to state, so it could be that practices are different in different places.

I would think it would be cheaper and easier to just build a new one!
