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: 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
  • A: The box is a lie!! This tank is 80% air and 20% helium. The balloons float for less than 30 minutes or never float at all! Complete trash!!

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

submitted by davida - 5 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 - 7 years ago
  • A: No it is not refillable

    submitted byBs917 - 7 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 - 7 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 - 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 - 8 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 review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a great party product. Super easy to use, I was able to inflate a TON of balloons, and easy to get rid of once finished. The price is okay, it’s a little higher than I’d like to pay for pretty much use for one event, buts it’s still ultimately cheaper than going to a store to inflate a bunch of balloons! One thing to note it does say on the package as well, if you’re inflating big foil balloons you’re def not going to have a lot of helium left over for other balloons! Overall I’d probably buy again for another event!

Disappointing! I wouldn't recommend this product. The helium only lasted around 30 minutes in the balloons that actually floated, while the rest were duds and immediately sank to the ground. I suggest going to Party City or another place where you can find better-quality balloon bouquets. These tanks used to work 13 years ago, but they've been a complete waste lately. Darn, I wish I'd taken pics or videos of the balloons I filled from this “air” tank!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have to admit that I am very concerned about using this as the box that it was received in was fairly well beat up and appears to have been opened. Also, I did not realize that the tank would not be refillable, so this seems incredibly wasteful. I would not recommend and definitely would not purchase for myself.

AJ - 8 days ago, Verified purchaser
Second time I’ve purchased a tank and target and second time the valve seemed to be broken. Balloons would not inflate and sounded as if nothing was coming out of the valve anyways. Of course target would not return because it was “used”. Yes, I turned the thing 3-5 times to fully open. Didn’t matter. It was as if the tank was already empty.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I don’t know what I was expecting but I was hoping for a little more lasting power from the helium. I blew up some balloons the morning of my son’s birthday party (about 2 hours prior to start of party) and by the time the party ended, most of the balloons were no longer floating. Only a couple Mylar balloons lasted the whole time. It may be that I used the wrong balloons. I didn’t blow up solely the balloons that came with the tank. Some balloons immediately had no float. Some I thought would be okay. They floated at the beginning at least, but only lasted 3-4 hours. I was a bit disappointed but I guess any balloon is better than nothing for the kids so there was fun to be had regardless.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I recently used the Balloon Time Helium Kit for my mom's 50th birthday party, and it was extremely easy to use. The kit comes with a portable helium tank, colorful balloons, and curling ribbons. The best part? It was super fast to get all the balloons blown up and hung up for the party. Just twist the nozzle, and you’re inflating balloons. The tank is lightweight and recyclable (yay!), so no need to worry about refills. The balloons included are great quality and pretty colors, perfect for a party. The only downside is the environmental impact since the tank is single-use. But I'm glad the tank is recyclable and for the convenience and fun factor, it was definitely worth it for the party. It definitely made decorating a breeze and helped make her celebration extra special/festive!

Did not seem like it had enough helium in the tank. Supposedly has enough to inflate up to 15 mylar or 30 x 9” - I had 5 mylar (3 of which would not float) and tried a 9” which would not inflate entirely. Great concept, but total rip off!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This Helium tank kit by Balloon Time is so awesome! What a great way to save money on expensive balloon bouquets from a retail store. It is advertised that it can blow up 30 balloons. The tank was definitely hard to open but I used a wash cloth and slowly twisted it open. It definitely took some muscle power to get it to twist open the fist time. Once the valve is open all you do is attach the balloon to the nosle and press down on the black nosle. You will hear and see the helium is coming out and filling the balloon. It works so slick! The kit came with a bag of latex balloons and a roll of white ribbon. I would definitely get it again and recommend it to friends and family!

The Balloon Time 9.5" Medium Helium Kit

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Balloon Time 9.5" Medium Helium Kit is convenient and easy to use, perfect for small parties. It includes a helium tank, balloons, and ribbon. The tank is simple to operate, but it's not refillable, so it's a one-time-use product. The balloons don't stay afloat for long, so inflate them close to your event time. Overall, it's a handy kit but has a limited float time and single-use limitation.
