    Just a short survey on how often chess players change their mattresses? I’ve had my first double Ikea one for 30 years but do use a topper.

    I have had my Carpe Diem bed for 16 years and it is still good.

    You might be better asking draught players, as there is no mating involved.

    Water beds are very comfortable, especially they say for tall people. I loved mine.

    This was many years ago before I lived single. We were recommended to get the waterbed in time for a holiday or a few days off work because it could be tricky getting used to. But it was really nice right away. Have these beds gone out of fashion?

    The general advice is to change your mattress every 7 to 8 years.

    (The reason is a little 'creepy' so I won't supply it).

    Good that you use a topper.

    As my castle contains 84 bedrooms, I tend to just circulate the rooms I sleep in.
