The Mattress Cooler Classic is a complete, all-in-one mattress cooling system designed to improve sleep quality.
The Mattress Cooler Classic works by chilling water and circulating it throughout the cooling mattress topper. This chilled water removes body heat trapped in the sleep envelope, cooling your body to your desired sleeping temp. Once the water has absorbed this body heat, it is returned to the drip tray, where it gently drips down into the evaporation membrane and is rechilled before being pumped back through the cooling pad again.
The Mattress Cooler Classic was designed for easy setup. Setup can be done within 5-10 minutes.
This evaporative cooling system requires about 1 quart of water per night, depending on fan speed and relative humidity. This will need to be filled on a nightly basis.
The system must be drained every two weeks to prevent dust accumulation in the water tank, which can foul the evaporation pad and lead to microbial growth. To drain the unit, pull out the small black rubber drain plug in the bottom right corner of the unit. This is best done in a tub or sink. You can add up to 1/8 tsp of laundry bleach to the water to reduce the risk of growth in the system. However, do not add more than that amount of bleach, it can damage the system overtime and shorten its lifespan.
Tip #1: Ideally, your water cooler should be placed on a surface slightly higher than the pad, such as on a nightstand. If your water cooler is placed lower than the cooling pad and you are having issues with the water overflowing, we recommend to first try running it with less water in the tank instead of topping it off every night. The internal tank is about 2.5 quarts, but most will only use a quart a night. The trick is to have enough water in the tank to make it through the night, while leaving enough room in the tank for the water in the pad to flow back without overtopping the internal tank. The second option is to just leave the unit on but change the fan cycle to D4 when you wake up. This will disable the fan instead of turning off the whole unit. This will minimize water and electricity usage while keeping the pump running, and preventing backflow from the pad to the tank.
Tip #2: Cooling pads are wear items and will generally need to be replaced every 4-6 months. Over time, weak spots can develop in areas that receive repetitive folding or rubbing. Under the pressure of the water pump, these weak spots can turn into micro leaks that create small weak spots in the pad. Your first replacement is included in the box, and additional pads are available on Amazon.
