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.
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’. With the the steps inside the pool with an open area beneath, this can be useful if you want to tuck away the pump and heater. Also, the Jordan lends itself to additional finishes such as tiling effect. A small Jordan pool is a single piece baptistry that can be carried and moved.
The same techniques we use to repair a baptistry can also be used to build a baptistry in-situ. If you have a concrete pit, we can insulate and reline it and it will last for decades. The insulation will make it cheaper to heat. There are other options for building in situ, and even self-build, DIY baptistries, so get in touch to discuss this.
A fibreglass baptistry tank has many advantages over a concrete and tile pit.
- 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.
- Where our pre-formed GRP pools shows their superiority over concrete & tile 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.
- 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.
- Where you have a leaking concrete baptistry, we have the expertise to reline them.
Please call David on 0345 230 1381 if you have any queries or simply want to explore the options. We are happy to provide you with information and drawings, and such things as plumbing, drainage and installation are best considered early in the project. We are happy to give whatever advice we can. To help, I’ve put together a down-loadable PDF sheet to give A few salient points of designing and building a baptistry – For Architects.
The layout of your pool can be customized in so many ways: steps, colours, lights, drainage options, tiling effects…
