Q: Can I take it to El Salvador by plane

submitted by Leonor - 6 years ago
  • A: yeah you can for sure

    submitted byabc123 - 6 years ago
  • A: Although the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) does not specify helium tanks, it refers to campers' propane tanks, et al., as follows: "Empty propane or gas cylinders are allowed in checked or carry-on bags as long as our officers can see inside." In other words, you would have to remove the valve and regulator/inflator, which, of course, would mean that the helium would escape! So, the answer would seem to be, "You cannot take this or any other kind of closed cylinder on board."

    submitted byskaizun - 6 years ago
  • A: Probably too late for the original poster, but hopefully this is useful to future inquiries. Helium is a non-flammable compressed gas, and as such is categorized as a Division 2.2 hazardous material in the United States and Division 2.2 dangerous good in El Salvador. Such articles can be offered as cargo on aircraft, but cannot be brought on board by passengers nor offered in checked baggage. There are certain exceptions (see 49 CFR 175.10) but helium for balloons is not among those exceptions.

    submitted byHazmat Lawyer - 4 years ago
  • A: You should probably contact the airlines with this question.

Q: How many 12" balloon can the 8.9 cu ft helium kit can fill? I have about 60 12" balloon.

submitted by davida - 4 years ago
  • A: Today I was able to fill 20 of the 50 12" balloons I have

    submitted byMeowgirl - 4 years ago
  • A: Hello, and thank you for your question. Our standard tank is designed to fill 30 nine-inch balloons, or 16 eleven-inch or mylar balloons. Our Jumbo tank is designed to fill 50, nine-inch balloons or 27, eleven-inch or mylar balloons. If you have any additional questions, please contact us at: BalloonTime@WothingtonIndustries.com or via Facebook Messenger. Thank you.

Q: Is this tank refillable? IF I run out of helium, am I able to refill the tank?

submitted by Cheryl - 6 years ago
  • A: No it’s not refillable. After you ran out of helium all you can do is to recycle it. (What a waste. I know)

    submitted byHfdallas - 6 years ago
  • A: No it is not refillable

    submitted byBs917 - 6 years ago

Q: Where can it be disposed of as it is a gas ? as I believe it cant be thrown into the rubbish?

submitted by New Parent - 7 years ago
  • A: The instructions say to remove all air from the tank, first, using the nozzle as if you were blowing up additional balloons (I suggest you do this in a well-ventilated area, as direct exposure to helium is considered a potential health threat), then, punch a hole in the unit where specified (it's a ring near the top of the unit), then circle the punctured rink with a permanent marker and write the word "EMPTY" above it. You may NOT be able to dispose of it through your regular trash/recyclable pick-ups, so you may be forced to bring it to a local metal recycler/salvager/junk yard, who MAY pay you for whatever the metal (steel) is worth. Or call your local trash/recycle yard to see if they'll accept a delivery (n.b., some will accept such for free, but some may charge you for the privilege).

    submitted byskaizun - 6 years ago
  • A: There are instructions on how to recycle it. There’s a spot to puncture a hole with a hammer and screwdriver then you use a permanent marker to indicate that it’s been emptied. It’s not that difficult.

    submitted bymjl411 - 6 years ago

Q: Is ther air mixed with the helium?

submitted by Mirandco24 - 7 years ago
  • A: No I don't believe so

    submitted byAmeljoog - 7 years ago
  • A: Yes, the tank says (in Spanish) that it is a mix of air and not less than 80% helium.

    submitted bynetnuevo - 7 years ago

Q: Does the tank have an expiration date if I bought a few of them, one for summer 2024 and a couple now? Do they expire if not opened at all? Thanks

submitted by new chromebook user - 5 months ago
  • A: Hello, and thank you for your comment. If there is still helium in your Balloon Time tank, you can store it safely for your next event with these steps. • Close the green valve tightly. If you don’t have a tight seal, it may leak helium over time. • Please keep out of the reach of children. We can easily be reached at: BalloonTime@WorthingtonIndustries.com. if you have any additional questions. Thank you.

Q: How many 34" number balloons can this helium tank fill?

submitted by SaraS - 1 year ago
  • A: Hello, the Standard tank can fill up to two 36" number balloons. However, other factors may alter 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. If you need further assistance, please email us directly at BalloonTime@WorthingtonIndustries.com. Thank you.

This is such a great value and alternative when doing your own balloons. So many less places to get balloons for parties and events. Loved that I could save money on doing it on my own. Blew up about 16 balloons and two mylar balloons. Couldve blew up way more regular balloons though if I didn’t have those Mylars.

Love these for the price. Sometimes I do wish they lasted a little longer or had a bigger capacity, but compared to the price of other helium tanks this is wonderful to do a kids bday on your own, etc. and was equivalent when you buy this with balloons to paying for a party store to blow up the balloons for you, so I love this option!

What a waste of money. Most of the balloons just layed on the ground. I could have blown them up by mouth and the end result would have been about the same with the exception that I would have saved $33. I'm disappointed that Target even sells this product. I should have trusted the many bad reviews.

Worked great for us. I was able to fill 6 32 " foil balloons, one 40" foil baloon and a few small rubber balloons that came with this kit. The foil balloons are still pretty good, it's been 3 days already, the rubber ones deflated some time during the night on the first day, so I'm not sure about exact hours, but at least 8 hours they were flying!

Andrea - 29 days ago, Verified purchaser
Super disappointed in the life of the balloon once inflated. Most people can’t wait until the start time of the party to fill balloons, as there are a million other things to do. However, if you fill them with this helium any sooner, they’ll all be on the ground by the time of your event. Super disappointing to have to scramble at the last minute for plan b.

It works for a small amount of balloons. But I'd recommend only doing the day of. It seems to not keep past a day, the next day 90% of the balloons we aired up were on the ground. With how expensive it is to have a local place air up specific balloons you buy, this is an affordable and easy way to go.

I paid attention to past reviews that mentioned the helium not lasting and waited until about 30 minutes before my party to inflate the balloons. The balloons stayed inflated for the duration (4 hrs) and I only noticed one falling toward the end. I would say I ended up with about 15 latex balloons from this. It did exactly what I needed it to so I can’t complain. But I would definitely temper your expectations.

Worked great for us. Used it in a pinch for a kids birthday party and glad we gave it a shot. Inflated 6 big foul balloons and maybe a dozen smaller latex balloons before we ran out of air. The foils are still floating two days later, the latex ones lost their loft after a few hours, but lasted through the party. Overall, worked great!r
