Besides pissing of neighbors and becoming wildly popular with those who have non-adjoining units, are there any structural concerns with having a 9' table on the second floor of an apartment?

probably not, if your concerned put a machinist level on the table on walk around the table and see if the bubble moves. If it doesn't move than your fine.

Might be a good idea to check with whoever you rent from since you can't assume there are no structural issues.

Agreed. Back when they were still popular, I remember apartments that wouldn't let you have a waterbed on the second floor.

Was it because of weight or the amount of water that could get loose?:smile:

If the 9 footer weighs approximately 1000 lbs then the weight would average around 25 lbs per square foot.

Weight. Water is heavy! For some reason I'm thinking I remember 2500 lbs for a filled king sized waterbed. I could be wrong though. It's been so long since I've had one, and I never tried to lift it. LOL
