Question: Do Your Hardside Waterbed Include the Plywood?

Answer: Yes, every wood framed or hardside waterbed includes the supporting floor or solid base. We call this part of the bed, the decking. However the decking is usually not made of plywood. Many stores like STL Beds choose to no longer use plywood due to bowing and warping issues, a problem the waterbed industry dealt with years ago.

Where to buy Water Bed Decking

For those people like Jan who are looking to buy a complete waterbed it is important to know that most companies selling waterbeds and waterbed decking use at least 7/16 inch thick (OSB) Oriental Strand Board. The same stuff used for roofing. For those of you not looking for a complete waterbed, you can buy the waterbed deck or decking by itself, we recommend your local hardware store, Home Depot, or Lowes. It is quite cheap there and can be purchased for under $20.00. It need only to be cut to size.
