Baptistry Repair Services
Over the years, many churches find that their
baptistry begins to give issues and problems.
These baptistries may be made from fiberglass,
steel, concrete, or even other materials.
None of these materials is 100% foolproof as a
building material, as they all have weaknesses.
buildings shift and settle, concrete can develop
cracks which can allow water to penetrate.
Steel tends to rust over time and weaken.
Fiberglass, unless properly maintained, can have
its own issues.
One of the most common issues seen with a
fiberglass baptistry is when a congregation
leaves the water in for a long period of time.
Unlike an acrylic hot tub, a fiberglass
baptistry is not designed for this. During
manufacturing, a special finish sealer can be
added to help with this problem, but it usually
adds about 25% to the cost of a fiberglass tub
so most churches do not order it. This can
cause blistering of the surface, cracks and
other problems. For more info,

blisters, can cut out bad areas, grind, refill,
sand, and re-epoxy the areas without removing
the baptistry, and we can offer a custom color
match to your existing church pool.

Another common problems is found when the
baptistry is improperly installed, or when the
floor area or support area settles, causing the
baptistry to not be fully supported. When
filled with water (and people walk in it) it can
easily crack causing issues. We offer a
foam injection service that fills those voids
and provides support to areas where the support
has previously failed.
Other issues commonly seen are cracks in the
walls of your baptistry, including stress
cracks, delamination, flexing bottoms, and
fading of the fiberglass. These can often be
addressed by replacing the support system,
reinforcing the fiberglass, finding and fixing
the cause. When you need touch up
paint, our epoxy paint systems will hold
up under water.
These cracks, blisters and other issues can be
resolved by our expert team.
Contact us with your issue, send photos and
a good description. We can have a
technician talk with you on the telephone, and
arrangements can be made to have someone come to
the church for an estimate. There is
usually a modest charge for these estimates
since our technicians travel the US to meet with
churches. However, a plan to repair your
baptistry will be presented with pricing
included, to remedy your situation. In
most cases, your baptistry can be restored to a
like-new, usable condition without removing it.
After your telephone or in-person consultation,
if you decide you want to replace the baptistry,
we offer models from most of the major
manufacturers in the eastern, central or western
US. See the list at the top right for
