Q: how do i recycle the tank when empty!? we bought one last year and it was great until it was time to dispose of the tank. sad face.

submitted by gailmom - 7 years ago
  • A: We took ours to the county recycling center

    submitted byKP - 7 years ago
  • A: I followed directions I found on YouTube which showed me how to use a screwdriver and hammer to open the hole at the top of the tank to release all of the helium entirely. Then you use a permanent marker to circle the opened hole and write "empty" next to it and then I just put it in my regular recycle bins which get picked up bi-weekly.

submitted by Chick - 11 months ago
  • A: Chick, thank you for reaching out. A jumbo tank will inflate 4, 36" foil balloons. A jumbo tank should be sufficient to inflate 2 40" balloons. If you have any other questions please feel free to reach out at BalloonTime@WTHG.com.

Q: how many 41 inch foil balloons will the jumbo tank fill? thanks.

submitted by jdv - 2 years ago
  • A: Hello and thank you for your question. The Jumbo Helium tank should fill around 27 18" foil balloons. However, please keep in mind there are a number of factors that determine the total amount of balloons inflated, such as using balloons other than those supplied in a kit or using larger balloons. In addition, always ensure you have a good seal between the nozzle and balloon neck so no helium escapes while inflating, and tightly close the valve when storing your tank to prevent helium leakage.

Q: Hi, I am throwing a gender reveal for my cousin I need to fill at least 50 9 in balloons and one 36-in balloon plus three normal foil balloons will it be enough helium to fill all these balloons

submitted by Kat__ - 3 years ago
  • A: Hello, and thank you for your question. For the amount of balloons that need to be inflated, we would recommend one Jumbo tank for the 50, 9-inch balloons and an additional Jumbo tank for the 36-inch balloon and the other Mylar balloons. If you have any additional questions, please email us at BalloonTime@WorthingtonIndustries.com. Thank you.

Q: How long will the helium take last unopened?

submitted by TMD - 3 years ago
  • A: Hello, and thank you for your question. If your tank is stored in a room-temperature area, your unopened tank should last until you break the seal and open it up to a year. If you have any additional questions, please email us at BalloonTime@WorthingtonIndustries.com. Thank you.

Q: I have 1x 40" foil, 10x 3.2g latex balloons, 2x 8" foil stars balloons and 30x 18" transparent balloons. is the smaller tank recommended or do i need this larger tank of helium?

submitted by Dalene - 3 years ago
  • A: Hi Dalene, thanks for your question. For the large amount of balloons you are inflating, we would advise two of the Jumbo tanks. The large volume of balloons you have will require more helium tank the standard tank or even one jumbo tank. If you have additional questions, please email us at BalloonTime@WorthingtonIndustries.com. Thank you.

TLS92107 - 21 days ago, Verified purchaser
I wish I’d listened to the negative reviews. We bought two of these. Complete waste of so much money. The mechanics of the tank work great, it’s super safe and easy to use the valve. But the quality of the helium is so abysmal that it will barely float a 12” double stuffed balloon. Two tanks worth of helium couldn’t float a balloon arch. We used the helium two hours in advance of a party. The helium gas is of woefully poor quality. The helium-filled balloons barely floated above the floor. Barely lasted two hours before they were completely on the floor. We had to tie the balloons to a tent to get them to stay in the air and they still drooped down.

Helium Tank Change?

3 out of 5 stars
Anonymous - 1 month ago, Verified purchaser
I purchased two tanks last year and the balloons lasted for like two or three days floating. The foil balloons were somewhat afloat for weeks on end. The helium in the tank purchased this year could not float a single foil balloon—fully inflated, I had to tape them to the wall. Regular balloons sank within hours. What’s going on—is there a lower helium percentage in tanks now? The tank did fill around the number of regular balloons advertised. My party looked great, just wished that the foil balloons floated better, and that all the balloons floated longer. For all the time spent creating a balloon arch, it would have been nice to enjoy such efforts longer. Buy extra tape in case your spectacular foil balloons are also float-less.

The balloons don't stay floating long at all. Not even the 5-7 hours it's saying. We didn't make the balloons big and were not able to blow up many before the tank died.

Was worried after reading reviews, but this worked as advertised. Filled 53 balloons (using the latex ones that came with the kit) - only 1 popped while filling. Did not stay floating long (box said 5-7 hours, which was accurate) but worked well for the science experiment we used them for. Did not try with foil balloons, but box said those would last 2-3 days.

Mixed review ~ my first tank did exactly what I'd hoped. Filled a couple bags of helium balloons the night before my daughter's birthday and they stayed up for a few days. We used it occasionally after that too and I lost count of the number of balloons it filled. The second tank I bought worked well initially too, except for confetti balloons ~ it wasn't "light" enough to make those float. Now, over a year later, the few balloons I just filled emptied the tank and didn't rise at all. I went online to see about recycling or refilling and found all these negative reviews. I'm pleased and will try again hoping I keep getting good tanks. Would be five stars if it were 25% off the current price.
