FAQ - Frequently
1. Are these

portable baptistries and occasionally other
models. It takes about 3 weeks to manufacture a
baptistry, plus a few days for shipping. If you
are in a urgent need, we can expedite the
manufacturing of your order for a 25% surcharge.
This will get your baptistry made in 5 business
days and shipped on the first available truck.

Accessories are normally in stock.
2. What are the
baptistries made of?

of polyester strands of shot or blown
fiberglass, sprayed onto a baptistry pattern,
then rolled to make them watertight. Some

warranty on your baptistries?

warranted for 10 years against structural

after each use or the warranty will be voided.
