I was using the old (attach to your Spigot) type siphon connection.. Way to slow and since it uses water to draw from the bed it wastes water..Any Suggestions ?? I am looking for something to pump the water to my sink drain from the Mattress..

There should be a hose that came with the bed for siphoning. If not, go get one and suck on it. /sarc

Ther's no finer way to start the morning than with a steaming cup of liquid assole.

A pump isn't needed to drain a water bed. Any long hose will do. The only stipulation is that the drain end is lower than the originating source. The sink will not do unless it is downstairs from the bed. Gravity does the work once the drain end is low enough from the source.
A water bed can be drained outside through a window or door. Slow drain means your hose is small.

Correct but the sink is a little higher and I do not have a Floor drain...So it will have to be an electric pump
