Instructions for Filling Large Diameter Latex Balloons

Please read and follow all instructions before starting the filling process.

STEP #1: Be sure to wear eye/face protection. Handle balloon with care. Clean hands of dirt and remove sharp objects from inflation area.

STEP #2: Make sure to have 2 people for operation. 1st person holds neck of balloon over regulator. 2nd person holds body of balloon. As 1st person starts to release air at a slow speed, 2nd person assures that air is going into body of balloon, not the neck or too close to wall of balloon. Very Important; air releasing from regulator is at very high speed, release as slow as possible. Releasing air too fast or too close to neck or wall of the balloon will cause pin-holes or weak spots. Air must be directed into body of balloon held by 2nd person.

STEP #3: Fill balloon until desired size is reached. CAUTION!! OVER INFLATION WILL CAUSE BALLOON TO BURST!!

Jumbo latex balloons are machine made. Once in a while, a defective balloon will get through the quality control process. It is best to test balloon before filling completely.

We suggest a few guidelines to prolong the life of your balloon:

  • DO NOT fly balloon in windy conditions or bad weather
  • DO NOT fly balloon near buildings or other objects that could pop the balloon
  • DO NOT, NOT Allow the balloon maneuvering area, even a small breeze will cause it to sway
  • DO NOT leave the balloon out overnight
  • DO NOT inflate indoors

Possible reasons your balloon burst/exploded:

  • The balloon was over inflated and too tight, leaving no room for expansion
  • Weather is too hot or too humid
  • Vandalism, including being shot
  • The balloon came into contact with a bird or other sharp object

Defective balloons must be brought to the attention of your supplier immediately.
