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.
