How to Use Air Mattress Pumps


An air mattress, otherwise known as an air bed, is a portable, inflatable bed. Air mattresses are designed to be filled with air using an air mattress pump when your want to use the bed. There are two basic types of air mattress pumps: automatic and manual pumps. An automatic pump uses either battery or electrical power to inflate the mattress. A manual pump uses either hands or feet to manually inflate the mattress

  • Remove the air stopper from the valve on the air mattress.

  • Attach the appropriate adapter to the end of the mattress pump. The appropriate adapter will fit snugly against the mattress's valve.

  • Insert the adapter into the valve on the mattress.

  • Insert or connect the batteries to an electronic air pump. Alternatively, some pumps use an power adapter to connect to an electrical outlet. If you are using a manual pump, skip this step.

  • Start pumping. If you are using an electronic air pump, you will flip a power switch. If you are using a manual air pump, you will start pumping using either your hands or your feet.

  • Continue pumping until the bed has the appropriate amount of air. There is no correct level of air for an air mattress. If you prefer a softer mattress, you will want to use less air. If you prefer a harder mattress, you will want to use more air.
