Baptistry Heaters

Baptistry Heaters by Church Outlet

Purchasing a baptistry heater can seem like a daunting task but we are here to help clear up the confusion! If you have spent much time looking around the internet for baptistry heaters you have seen websites and blogs that try to discredit one another and make their heater appear more than it really is. This blog post will not do that. We are going to just state the facts so that you can make an informed decision.

All of our heaters are manufactured by HydroQuip of Corona, CA. HydroQuip started in the Spa Heater
BES 6000 Baptistry Heater
business more than 30 years ago and eventually made it's way into the baptismal heater market. Built on quality, safety and durability you won't find a better circulation heater. The BES 6000 series baptismal heater is available in both a 5.5kw (BES 6000) and an 11kw (BES 6005). Optional accessories such as auto fill, auto drain, and the BAPside remote (which allows for remote operation up to 25 feet away from the heater unit) are available. A 3/4 horsepower pump pulls the water from the baptistry and pushes it through the heating element then back into the baptismal for an efficient heating process. No need to worry about rust, the pump has no metal parts and the heating element is protected in a stainless steel housing.

So when you are searching the internet for your new or replacement baptistry heater keep these things in mind.
  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 heating element made of stainless steel?
  4. Is the heater thermostatically controlled?
  5. Does the heater offer a control panel that is plug-n-play and allow for add-on accessories?
  6. Does the baptistry heater have Visual Diagnostics so that you can know if something is wrong?
The other thing to keep in mind is that there are many different names for baptistry heaters on the market (PBH by Piedmont Fiberglass, EQAS by Fiberglass Specialties and CR series by ChurchRite) all of which are manufactured by HydroQuip and are private labeled for these companies. Church Outlet has decided to offer the baptismal heaters under the HydroQuip name so that you know what you are getting. If you go to buy a new car (Ford, Chevrolet, Dodge, etc.) no matter which one you are loyal to you want to know that you are buying the factory name.
