Instructions, Safety Information, Frequently Asked Questions & Tips
Helium Tank Operation
Once you have your tank, transport it safely by making sure your vehicle is well ventilated and the tank is secured. When you’re ready to start filling balloons open the pocket and grab the regulator. If you have a safety cap, unscrew it by turning it counter-clockwise. Screw the regulator tightly into the valve by turning it clockwise. Hand-tight is fine, do not use a wrench to tighten as it will damage the regulator. Turn the tank on by turning the valve counter-clockwise. To inflate the balloon, fit the balloon opening around the black tip and tilt in any direction. The balloon will fill quickly so tilt it gently at first. Do not tilt the nozzle too hard or you may break it. When finished inflating all of your balloons make sure to turn off your tank by turning the valve clockwise. To get the tank ready for transport again, simply close the valve by turning it clockwise. Release the pressure by tilting the nozzle as if you were filling a balloon. Then unscrew the regulator by turning it counter-clockwise. Place the regulator back in the pouch, and screw the safety cap on clockwise if you have one.
Helium is an inert, non-toxic, non-flammable, gas. Despite this, it is still pressurized and can still be dangerous if misused or if proper safety practices are ignored. We’ve displayed here what we believe to be the most important safety information to ensure your event happens safely. Failure to adhere to these standards renders Helium2Rent free of liability for whatever may happen.
DO NOT INHALE HELIUM
Although helium is non-toxic it can still act as an asphyxiant if inhaled by displacing the oxygen in your lungs. Your brain cannot receive oxygen if your lungs are filled with helium.
RELEASING IS LITTERING
When released, balloons will pop at a certain altitude then fall to the ground and trees as litter. Latex balloons are biodegradable but only after many months. During this time animals may ingest them and choke or they may clog drainage waterways. Please dispose of balloons properly by popping them and throwing them away.
DO NOT RELEASE BALLOONS NEAR POWERLINES
Balloons may come loose and fly into electrical lines. Balloons that contact power lines can cause a short circuit which can lead to power outages or explosions. This is especially true with mylar balloons.
TANK WON’T GO BOOM BUT CAN GO PWOOOSH
Don’t break the valve unless you want a torpedo
VENTILATION IS KEY
Helium Tanks can leak and fill a room with gas, which may asphyxiate anyone who may enter or be present in the room.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I make my balloons last longer?
Where should I inflate my balloons at?
Away from powerlines and in a well ventilated area, preferably under a low ceiling so you may grab balloons incase they get away during tieing.
How long does it take to inflate 50 Balloons?
IDK a while, make an assembly line with a few people
