Where to place the inflatable whirlpool?
Body massage, relief for the spirit
What is a jacuzzi? Simply put, a spacious and comfortable bathtub with a full body water massage. The action of air bubbles released into the water by special jets has a beneficial effect on the body, promotes relaxation and facilitates muscle relaxation during times of stress and fatigue. Such a bath is especially recommended for people with low blood pressure, because it improves blood circulation, but hydromassage is also recommended for patients during rehabilitation after injuries, people with recurrent muscle and joint pain or overweight. Relief for the body means better well-being - practically everyone feels better after using the whirlpool.
Can a whirlpool be stored indoors?
Yes, you can set up such a jacuzzi inside, but we don't recommend it. First of all, it is absolutely necessary to ensure that the floor is strong enough to support not only the bathtub, which in itself is not too heavy (it weighs several tens of kilos and it can be confusing). In addition, there is a much higher weight of water - at least a few hundred kilograms, which usually exceeds half a ton after the tank is filled (INTEX or Bestway inflatable whirlpools available on the market can hold up to about 800 liters of water). Let's not forget the weight of the users themselves, of whom there may be several at a time - four to six adults can fit in a typical whirlpool. We usually do not know the load-bearing capacity of building elements, so if we do not intend to pay for expertise, it is better to install a whirlpool on the lowest available floor. Not only because of its weight - but also because of the risk of overflowing and spilling water. On the upper floor, it penetrates the ceiling, causing leaks and gradually weakening the floor, and the weight of a full tub can damage the structure. Therefore, if the scene of the devastation of the house or apartment is not your childhood dream, we do not strongly recommend this idea.
Watch out for the neighborhood!
However, if we're already putting the hot tub indoors, make sure there are no exposed electrical outlets nearby, just in case of water leaks and splashes. The same goes for valuables - they should be as far away from the bathtub as possible. And that may not be enough, because the hot water in the bath generates a lot of steam, which condensed in a small space can damage the furniture or upholstery.
Sounds can be another inconvenience. The pump that fills the pumped whirlpool can be quite loud, as can the nozzles that inject bubbles into the water during bathing. In other conditions, it is not difficult to tolerate these sounds, but in a small enclosed room, they can be amplified by reverberations reflected from the walls, which disturbs the relaxation of users and their neighbors.
Long Jacuzzi season
So it will be much better - if we have such an opportunity to find a place to set up a hot tub outside, in the garden in the yard or on the holiday plot. And it doesn't have to worry about our country's capricious aura - it's just this device that makes us independent of the changing weather. The whirlpools from INTEX or Bestway are equipped with water heaters as standard, thanks to which the hydromassage bath is a great pleasure even on cold days. Most models have the ability to set the desired water temperature, for example in the range of 20 to 40 degrees C, and heat it up quickly. The material from which the walls of the inflatable whirlpools are made is also resistant to external conditions and provides excellent insulation. The season in the hot tub can therefore be much longer than in a regular garden pool.
It is worth considering in advance that the whirlpool should be located in a place where it will not be far into the heated room, so that it does not cool down when you run long distances in a wet swimsuit and you do not catch a cold. However, depending on your preferences, it may be a good idea to place it at a slightly remote point if you do not want to feel the envious or curious glances of your neighbors - it can be like a garden pavilion for this purpose. When considering the location of the inflatable baths, we will also take into account other factors such as the distance from the water source into which we will fill the bath and where we can drain it later, or from the energy source for the aeration and filter pump (preferably professionally connected by an electrician) . As with other pools, a reasonable distance from trees and shrubs should be kept in mind so that the tub is not constantly littered with leaves, flowers or pollen and the ground is well leveled, level and firm.
Ease of transport
What, on the other hand, is the advantage of inflatable whirlpools over others is a factor that you would have to think about in this slightly complicated puzzle, namely right. Permanently installed whirlpools require additional access for heavy equipment, trucks or cranes to supply whirlpool components and building materials, inflatable whirlpools can carry two people. You do not need an access road or demolition of the environment - just take the package to the selected place, remove the assembled tank and other accessories (depending on the model, the package can weigh 40 - 70 kg). Then fill the tub with air until it reaches the desired shape, set it in the perfect position and install other equipment. There is no need for complicated operations, heavy pallet technology or construction work required by a team of people. Nevertheless, we recommend that you choose your place more carefully so that you do not have to disassemble your whirlpool soon, but on the contrary, you will enjoy a long and undisturbed relaxation at any time.
