- Baptistry water filter and skimmer filters floating debris from the baptistry pool
- Removeable, user cleanable cartridge
- Keeps baptistry water clear by filtering debris, particles, hair, etc.off the surface of the water
- Use in conjunction with appropriate chemicals to keep water sanitized
- For larger built-in baptistries
- The skimmer would work on any of the full size baptistries with steps going in and out. It works in line with your heater. You cut a hole in the baptistry wall and mount the skimmer box. The water level should be about half way up the box opening. AS water is sucked in to the box it drags surface debris with it into the filter. Floating debris will be on top of the water inside the skimmer box and you will need to scoop it out of the box with a hand skimmer or by hand.
Placement of this filter is up to the church's discretion. It can be plumbed inline on the suction or the return side. If placed on the suction side, it filters the water before it gets to the heater, which would generally be expected to lenghten the life of the heater. Note however, that if the filter becomes blocked because of improper maintenance of other conditions, it could significantly reduce water flow to the heater, possibly causing the heater to overheat and burn out.
Make sure to inspect and clean the filter regularly.
Portable and Small Baptistries: The -610 skimmer is really not needed on a smaller baptistry such as a portable . Sskimmers remove surface debris that is floating on top of the water... You can do the same thing with a handheld pool skimmer periodically.
Also, if you are wanting to use the heater and or skimmer while you are baptizing this is not recommended for safety reasons unless all of the electrical connections and heater are placed at least 5ft laterally from the pool (double check the distance with your local permitting authority)
