Compact 5′ Round

BaptistryUK round poolThe 5′ Round: very quick to set up and plenty insulation, so it’s perfect if you’re hiring a space for your event.  It is ideal if, because of Covid-19, you want to empty and refill between baptising each candidate.  The insulation means that you probably won’t need a heater if you have a hot water supply via a combi-boiler supply.

The 5′ Round is made for customers using a hired space. It’s fast and easy to put up, robust, insulated and still big enough to baptise an adult with attendants.  The candidate kneels and is lowered sideways.  It was also designed for young people and those who are less mobile, as the sides are lower than our usual pools and are covered with foam.

You get the full reassurance that, in over a decade of regular use, we’ve never seen a leak thanks to the strong double liner. And, because of the great insulation, you may not need a heater at all, as long as you have access to hot mains water.
