Design & Build – Baptistry Manufacture

We design and manufacture baptistries – both permanent and dismountable – and all our existing pool models can be customized.  We can also build baptistries in-situ.

We can make whatever shape and size you want (within reason!) We can either build baptistries to your own specifications, or you can describe the baptistry you want and we can make it.

Insulated baptistry tank

BaptistryUK Elim pool

We have standard designs and sizes to choose from if you want to keep costs down, or you can have a wholly bespoke pool.

We have two styles designed to be customized – pools with integral steps called ‘The Elim’, and those with a separate step unit, which is called ‘The Jordan’.   The Jordan is ideal as a compact baptistry that looks like, and acts as, church furniture such as an altar. Also, the Jordan lends itself to additional finishes such as tiling effect. 

 

A fibreglass baptistry tank has many advantages over a concrete and tile pit.

  1. It is almost always cheaper in terms of building costs.  Installation of a single-piece tank is quicker, and it isn’t always necessary to have plumbing for drains or even filling – there are a range of options to suit the needs, budget and situation of the church.
  2. Where our pre-formed GRP pools shows their superiority over concrete is in zero-maintenance.  Tiling and grouting will soon start to look grubby and we get many enquirers needing to repair or replace leaking concrete pools.
  3. We have never found a concrete pool that has been properly insulated, most have none at all.  This makes them difficult to heat as you are heating water and the surrounding concrete.  All our tanks are insulated as standard with 50mm kingspan.  Lids can be insulated too.
  4. Where you have a leaking concrete baptistry, we have the expertise to reline them.
