Model 10 Immersion Heater
The ChurchRite® #10 Immersion Heater is a baptistry water heater specifically designed for small baptistries or for portable baptistries. The heater is quiet, durable and very cost effective. There is no setup or assembly required, you simply remove from the packaging, lay it down into the baptistry tank and plug it in and the unit does the rest for you. This immersion heater will heat 150 gallons of water to about 100° F. Completely automatic and portable, the heater includes a 60” power cord, a preset thermostat that engages at 85 degrees and cuts off at 105 degrees, and a stainless steel mounting bracket for easy placement. Designed for easy and safe use, the Teflon heating element will not burn out and the outer surface never overheats.
(Some exclusions apply. See Shipping for more details)
33”L x 2¾ ”W x 60” Cord Length
For optimal heating, a baptistry cover is strongly recommended during the heating process. We offer custom sized, insultated spa-style baptistry covers. Learn more by clicking here
Below are instructions for using the Model 10 Immersion Heater in your baptistry
The first step is to fill your baptistry, take the heater to the baptistry and immerse the heater in the baptistry water. The heater thermostat on the power cord must be submerged in the water and the heater must lay in a horizontal position at the floor of the baptistry.
Plug in the baptistry power cord to an outlet that is protected from water and is capable of handling 15 amps. Keep in mind the heater will not turn on unless the overall room temperature is 70 degrees (F) or lower.
Start the water heating process at least 24 hours before the baptismal service. Heater must be unplugged while baptistry is in use. It is important not to overload your breakers: The 1KW heater is rated at 15 amps, one heater per 120V. The 2KW is rated at 16 amps. You must use an outlet rated at the heater load. It is okay to temporarily hold the active/hot heater from the cable but do not touch the heater while hot.
Things to check if the built-in GFCI light is not on when plugged in:
- 1. No power – check your breaker panels circuit breakers to ensure they are on.
- 2. The GFCI plug or outlet may have become wet.
- 3. Water may be in the heating element, meaning the heater must be replaced. Please refer to Warranty for return information (returns other than factory defects are subject to a 25% restocking charge).
