Use the tables below to calculate your hire & carriage fee. For example, a standard nonagon hire with heater and carriage would be £305 (the £150 bond could be sent as a separate cheque if there is time). All hire prices already include VAT.
Or use the booking form at the foot of this page and we will do the workings out and email you the completed paperwork and pro-forma invoice.

The hire is for all necessary equipment: a baptistry; heater (if ordered); pipe for filling and emptying; tap adaptors; an electric pump for emptying; insulating cover; basepads to protect floor and liner, and a step for in the water (additional steps may be available if requested). Full instructions are also enclosed. The only thing you may want to supply yourself is a hosepipe; our piping can be used to fill but is designed primarily for emptying the baptistry.
To keep delivery at a price you the consumer would tolerate, we use a parcel service carrier who will deal with such large parcels. They do not give a time of delivery nor can they ring in advance to forewarn you (which is a nuisance!). The address for delivery and collection needs to be staffed 9-5 on the days of delivery and collection. If this is not possible, consider using a home or work address. Our full terms can be found here Terms and Conditions of Hire.
*Delivery options: We normally send the baptistries in a combination of card board boxes for the panels, and plastic crates for the kit. However, sometimes a pallet service is more appropriate, but we will discuss this with you where it is appropriate. Customers local to our depot in Mid-Wales may wish to use a ‘man-and-a-van’ service or to collect and return in person, this can save a lot of faff for both sides. Please contact us to discuss this: 0345 230 1381 or via the contact sheet below.
Cut-off point for despatches: for any weekend hire, the cut-off will be noon the previous Tuesday for pools, and noon the previous Wednesday for any smaller items such as heaters. Items can be sent but cannot be guaranteed to arrive in time. For heaters, there is the option of them being sent by Royal Mail for a higher delivery charge.
We have held prices steady since 2008, only raising them slightly when VAT had to be applied. However, our costs have continued to rise and have increased significantly in the last 12 months forcing us to review our pricing as above. The price rises will hit our regular customers hardest and so we have worked hard on a lease scheme to enable regular baptistry users to have their own baptistry for a small weekly rental, without the faff and expense of regular shipping, etc.
Please contact us to ask about leasing a baptistry as this will work out as a better rate: on the 5 year lease, as soon as you use the pool for the third time in the year, you’ve saved money!
