Will it fall through the floor?

We do not know of any instance of a waterbed falling through a floor. The weight of a waterbed is well distributed and the pressure on the floor is less than that of a person in a bath or a free standing refrigerator. Because a waterbed rests on a purpose built plinth, the floor loading is not only well below the basic requirements of building regulation from the early 1900's, it is often less than 10% of the contact pressure of a conventional bed on legs or casters. Millions of waterbeds sold throughout the world have failed to penetrate a ceiling so it's not an issue.
