For those churches looking for a simple, inexpensive baptism pool, we present the MINI Baptistry.
This is a no frills baptistry for folks looking for the cheapest unit they can get. It's well built, yet inexpensive.
This unit can be framed in to a pit and is perfect for installation in the ground of underneath a stage. The unit may also be used as a stand alone baptistry on the ground. Keep in mind you will need to figure out how people will get in and out. This unit does not have any interior steps.
Measuring 42" tall, the mini is the same depth as our larger, built in models. There are several ways the pastor and candidate can enter the baptistry. Each situation is different, but here are a few possibilities:
If using as a "stand alone", above ground baptistry. Some churches may elect to utilize a small step or platform on the exterior and interior. A short (12" to 18") platform or step placed on the outside will raise most candidates (who are in good health and have average mobility) high enough so they can swing a leg over the wall. If you have another platform on the inside for them to step down on , this method should work for people who are physically able to handle it.
Children can be handed over the wall by an adult to another adult in the pool.
The candidate can climb in using our optional removable ladder. The removable ladder rests on a platform (provided by the church) as well as the side wall of the baptistry. The ladder is probably the best option for most folks, but you do need a platform or a set of exterior stairs on the outside, for the top supports to rest on.
Above all, please keep safety in mind. It's always best to have a helper on hand as people aare entering and exiting the pool. Make sure the side flooring around the baptistry is covered with towels or a non-slip surface as water will drip off the candidates clothing to the floor.
Fill and drain your portable baptistry with a garden hose and sump pump. Or, if you prefer, we sell a portable circulation heater that includes a pump and hoses for easy filling, draining and heating o f the portable baptistery.
To move the baptistry, we recommend simple furniture movers, available at home improvement stores. We like the kind that are made of wood, covered with carpet and feature 4 casters. Two of these movers are all it takes to transport this baptistry. (Be sure to remove the movers before attempting to fill or use the baptistry)
