|What is conditioner?
Conditioner is an algaecide. The conditioner stabilizes the quality of the water so there is no risk of algae or bacteria growth inside the mattress. We recommend you add a 4 oz bottle of conditioner every six months. You can also purchase the conditioner in 8oz bottles which then treat the bed for 1 full year.
Since the waterbed is heated it gradually creates a bacteria buildup inside the mattress which is easily eliminated by pouring in one bottle of 8oz conditioner once a year. Additionally the waterbed conditioner treats the inside of the mattress preventing the bacteria from attatching to the inside of the mattress. It also prevents any smell that can develop from untreated water.
In summation, if you own a waterbed you should consider spending 10 dollars per year to properly treat your bed with waterbed conditioner which extends the life of your waterbed mattress and keeps the water fresh and clean.
