I was baptized in a creek near my childhood country church in the mid-60's. They installed a baptistry in the mid 90's. Churches use the resources at hand.

Full immersion is the process described as performed by Jesus in the Bible. Baptists think it's appropriate to follow that example. That said, my minister has sprinkled a couple of people who were not in a physical condition to be taken into the water. He got advice from his friend the Methodist minister!

Baptism is meant to be a sign to the world that one is a believer and may be a requirement to be a member of some churches.
