I have gone through two airbeds in over two and half years. Is this normal? I honestly don’t know how often they are used unless the guest leaves it laying out. Many guests are polite and put it back in the bag.
I replaced the initial airbed last September. And I doubt many people have used it. Often times I will suggest the huge couch in the basement for them to sleep on.
Sometimes the real little ones may sleep in the beds with the parents. I wish I could throw out a number of how many times I would guess it has been used…but I can’t. If I had to guess, I would say only one set of guests a month would use it at max. And that may only be for a few days.
Maybe those of you who have an airbed as a main bed…you could tell me how long yours lasted. This last one was Aerobed brand, and the current guest said it deflated half way down after about an hour and then she filled it back. Later she woke up and it was really deflated again. I am testing it now and did the bubble test and don’t see any…but it is deflating just like she said. The valve is shut properly.
So I am wondering if guests using the airbed are just having their kids jump all over it and it is stretching it too much. Another set of guests said the first airbed had a leak but they had wild hellions running and screaming all over the place. Even if it was not their doing…in my mind I still blamed them…lol.
The current guest group is 3 adults - 2 adult daughters and a mother - so definitely no wild kids jumping up and down. I am going to guess the leak problem was a previous guest who did not say anything. That means it only got a few uses sinces Sept. Thoughts??
