Buying a baptistry heater

If you are in the market to purchase a new baptistry heater but you don’t know where to start, we are here to help! We understand that choosing the correct baptismal heater can be a confusing task, so we want to try and make it simpler for you. Below you will find some questions you should know before you start the process of looking for a new baptistry heater.

  1. How many gallons of water does your baptistry hold?
  2. What is the size of your existing heater unit (in kilowatts)?
  3. Do you leave water in the baptistry all the time or do you fill and drain as needed?
  4. What if any are your limitations on power?
  5. Where is the existing heater located (in relation to the baptismal pool)?

Once you know the answer to to these basic questions the process of choosing the correct baptistry heater can begin. To make sure you get the best baptism heater you will want to make sure you pay close attention to the following. 

  1. Is the heater UL Listed? The entire unit not just the individual components?
  2. Does the pump have a minimum of 3/4 HP?
  3. Is the housing for the element made of stainless steel. 
  4. Is the heater thermostatically controlled?
  5. Does the baptistry heater offer a plug-n-play control panel that allows add-ons of accessories?
  6. Does the heater unit offer a Visual Diagnostics?
