What's the difference between Michigan Bubble Ball's TPU vs PVC?

When purchasing your walk on water balls you need to consider several aspects including:

  • Company reputation
  • Price
  • Turn-around time
  • After sale service
  • Adhesive techniques used
  • Material thickness
  • Type of material

There are many businesses that would offer you products that are sub-standard. It's very important for you to understand the difference between the two main material types that you are likely to be offered; PVC and TPU. There are many aspects other than price that should contribute to your decision.
