Baptistry circulation heaters should be used with all walk in baptistries wherever possible in order to obtain the fastest and most efficient heating. Available in 3kw, 6kw and 11.5 kw heating capacities. Larger baptistries over 1000 gallons will benefit from the use of a 11.5kw unit while smaller baptistries can be efficiently heated with the 6kw unit. We would not recommend the 3kw unit except for dry-minister and other, smaller baptistries.

See our Water Heating Chart to help pick the right heater for your baptistry pool

If you are in need of a replacement heater or pump, we sell them individually below but for new installations or if you are replacing and older unit, we recommend that you purchase a complete package which includes the heater, pump and pump kit(fittings).

ALL BAPTISTRY HEATERS MUST BE PLUGGED OR WIRED INTO A GFI PROTECTED OUTLET OR CIRCUIT- Our EQUAS models come with GFI protection built in.

When Installing baptistry heaters, do not install electrical components underneath plumbing joints. In case of a leak, you do not want water dripping into the electronics.
 

Baptistry Circulation Heater Questions and Answers 

Q. Can the pump be used separately to fill up a baptistery and then turn heater on.


You generally would not want to use the pump to fill the baptistry. The heater and pump should be on a separate loop from the fill and drain lines. The best way to fill a baptistry is like a bathtub with a simple handle and tub spout or wall port. You can also use an auto-fill device to fill the baptistry.. The auto-fill is an electrically operated solenoid valve which attaches to your existing water supply line.Some auto-fills are integrated into the control panel for the heater, but they are actually not part of the heating process and the pump is not used by the auto-fill.
 
You can see our various circulation heaters here https://www.churchproducts.com/baptistry-circulation-heaters.html
 
 

Q. We plan on leaving water in our double entry baptistry all the time. What size heater should we get?

We would generally recommend this one https://www.churchproducts.com/Equas_Baptistry_heater_AS-5X.htm or the fully-auto version here https://www.churchproducts.com/eqas-baptistery-heater-55kw-h-5.html
 
The fully auto version has an auto-drain and auto-fill so you do not need a separate manual drain or overflow as they are included. The 5.5kw size is sufficient since you will be leaving water in the baptistry all the time...The church can set the timer to come on when needed so you don't have to worry about the time it takes to heat, as much as you would without a timer. The timer can be used to cycle the water to help keep it from getting get "stale" and also to turn the heater on so the water will be ready to use Sunday morning.
 
For denominations that are required to have the water ready to go 24/7, such as Christian Church or Church of Christ, then the timer is good as you can set it to cycle the water regularly and the thermostat will keep the water at a constant temperature. You may also want to consider the 11kw version, as it heats up faster than the 5.5kw and will give them a little more flexibility if they do not want to keep the water heated all the time.

Q. Our church baptistry heater is not working, what do we do?

If your heater is a ChurchRite or HydroQuip 6000 series, here are the suggested troubleshooting steps:

TROUBLESHOOTING a ChurchRite Baptistry Heater

Equipment system will not operate:

1. Make sure the Power Air Switch is turned “ON”
2. Check if the Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter breaker is tripped. If tripped, attempt to reset the GCFI. If the GFCI trips repeatedly, contact a service technician to correct the problem.
3. Check the main circuit breaker panel. If the circuit breaker has tripped reset the breaker. If the circuit breaker trips repeatedly, contact a service technician to correct the problem.
4. For cord connected units check the receptacle.
5. Make sure the high-limit has not tripped. Push to reset.

Pump will run but there is no water flow:

1. Make sure system is installed below water level.
2. Make sure all valves are in the open position.
3. Make sure that the filter is clean.
4. Check the suction fittings to make sure that they are not clogged with debris.
5. Check the water level and make sure it is above the heater return and at the proper level for operation.
6. Check the pump for trapped air. With the pump off, loosen the outlet union and allow all air to escape. Re-tighten union, apply power to system and when there is water flowing to the return fitting the system should be heating if required. You may need to use a sponge to collect the water from this operation.

Pump runs and there is water flow but no heat:

1. Turn the thermostat to a higher temperature setting. Do not expect to feel hot water coming from the jets.
2. Check to see if the high limit switch reset button, located on the front of the control box, has popped outward. If so, reset by pressing inward.
3. Check to make sure that all the valves are open and that there is full flow. Limited water flow may not activate the pressure switch to allow the heater to come on.
4. Pressure switch may not be activated. Please refer to heater pressure adjustments for proper operation.
5. Heater ON light lit, but no heat. Contact your local technician for service.
6. Insufficient back pressure: Close return valve partially to increase pressure and allow heater to operate.

The water will not maintain the proper temperature:

1. A thermal cover may be required to maintain the water temperature.
2. Turn the thermostat to a higher setting.

Too much water flow / noisy pump:
1. Close discharge valve partially to reduce water flow.
3. Close discharge valve partially to reduce pump noise.

 

TROUBLESHOOTING a Little Giant Cannister Style Baptistry Circulation Heater 

Also applies to ChurchRite and most other cannister style church baptistry heaters
  • Verify the panel breaker is not tripped (usually a good idea to flip it over and back as sometimes they can be tripped but not appear so)
  • Verify the GFCI is reset (either at the outlet, box or panel)
 
  • Is the light on the control box on?
    • If not, turn the dial to highest setting..10 and see if it comes on. If the light does not come on, the next step is to call an electrician and have them check if the unit is receiving power. If it is receiving power, but the light is not on, then you probably have a control box issue. 
    • If the light is on and the pump is circulating water but the water is not warm, your element is probably burnt up or if it is old, covered in mineral deposits.
    • SOLUTION to either problem above: You can either replace the whole heater assembly or if your cannister is is in good shape, you can buy a new element which includes the control box.
 
  • If the light is on, is your pump running? (can you hear it?)
    • If your pump is not making any sound (they operate quietly so if the church is not quiet, it may be hard to hear the pump) or otherwise operating, have an electrician determine if it is getting power.
 
  • If you can hear your pump and the heater light is on, put your hand over the water outlet in the baptistry and verify you can feel a flow of water (it will not be strong)
    • Does the water feel warm? If so, give it time, it can take 12hours or longer to heat a really a large baptistry.
    • If the water is no warmer than the tap temperature, you may need to replace the element.
