  • Changing Water Effects

    A Living Waters Baptismal has two water effects. They include the “Gushing Spring” and the “Crystal Pool”. The “Gushing Spring” requires removal of the diverter disc, and mounting shaft. If installed, they are located at the water inlet in the bottom of the white basin. To remove, simply unscrew the diverter disc and mounting shaft. After removal, store them on the access door frame.

    The “Crystal Pool” comes with a choice of solid and clear diverter discs. Install by screwing one of the diverter discs onto the mounting shaft. Then screw the assembly into the threaded mounting hole in the water inlet of the white basin. Hand tighten only.
