Over the years, many churches have asked us if a
cover was available for the fiberglass
baptistry, steel baptistery or

but we now are offering covers similar to covers
found on spas or hot tubs, but for use on church
Baptistries are normally heated before use.
Water comes from the ground at 54 degrees F and
is too cold to enter. Hypothermia will set in
within a few moments if one is not careful.
The use of a
heater will enable the water temperature to
get to 94 or 95 degrees where it will be quite
comfy (remember your body temperature is 98-99
degrees). Since there is usually not a top on
the baptistry, however, the heater will tend to
run continually causing your electric meter to
run on and on. It also will shorten the
lifespan of heaters if they run continuously.
In addition the moisture produced can be harmful
to your instruments or furniture.

an advantage to some. They are made with a
high density 6" foam with aluminum channels which
is glued into the foam for added strength. Also
includes a Permaliner vapor barrier. Steam
stopper seams prevent moisture vapor leaks.
Features a non-tapered 6" thick top
with double stitching for the best quality. They
run about double the price of standard covers. Each
section weighs about 15-20 pounds. Call for a quote.
