HELIUM BOTTLE HIRE
How long will latex balloons stay in the air?
This depends on the volume & quality of the balloon and the air temperate. As a guide the average is 8 – 12 hrs at normal room temperature for a 28cm latex balloon filled 28cm from top to bottom. Latex Balloons can also be sealed with a product called Ultra Hi-Float that can make them last at least a further 3-4 days if handled correctly. We sell this product for $27.00 in a dispenser & will do approximately 100 28cm balloons. See "Balloon Accessories"
Steps to Inflating Helium Balloons
Place balloon over the end of the nozzle and hold securely
Tilt nozzle in a forward direction for gas to flow
Release nozzle when balloon reaches 28cm from neck to top
Tie a knot at the neck or attach a balloon clip.
If using a balloon clip, give the neck a short twist between thumb & forefinger, stretch the neck, then insert into the first slot then into the second slot and continue around at least three times.
