From going to work to picking up the kids and managing schedules, stress is a defacto part of modern living. Therefore, it is important for both the mental and physical health of individuals to take the necessary time to relax and de-stress whenever possible.
One way of doing this is with the use of a hot tub but the realistic fact is that often people don’t have the time or money to invest in a built in hot tub. For that reason, the rise of the inflatable hot tub has occurred in many locations. By providing the healing aspect of a hot tub with the portability and convenience of an inflatable, now everyone can enjoy a home hot tub.
Inflatable Over Built In
The main difference, besides the obvious, between a built in hot tub and an inflatable tub is convenience. However, it is not just the convenience of having a tub available. A built in tub requires a high degree of maintenance to make the tub safe for use.
As a matter of fact, built in hot tubs, while well know for their healing aspects, also have a reputation of being detrimental to your health from bacterial growth. Something that takes a lot of attention to detail in a built in hot tub to prevent.
Whereas, in a inflatable hot tub, the very fact that you remove the water and take it down, allowing it to dry fully, removes some of that issue with bacterial growth.
Additionally, while you still have to treat the water in an inflatable, you don’t have the expense of constantly having to check and treat the water while you are not using it because it is emptied and dry. As opposed to a built in tub that still requires water treatment, even if you are not using it.
