I went to a Church of Christ as a kid that had a full-immersion pool (was never baptized, never bought into it, personally). It was behind the altar area, accessible from a back room, and the theater of them dimming the lights in the auditorium and swiftly pulling back the curtain to a well-lit baptismal was fairly impressive for a church that didn't do much of the dramatic (no instrumental music, for instance).

Anyway, there were stories of people being baptized in swimming pools and bathtubs and the like. Usually the story involved a person hearing the good news about how they could be saved and wanting to be baptized right away, or a person in some far-flung land where that was the only option.
