Helium balloons are best if one is looking for a novel way to give flowers. These are not typically given when someone is placed in the hospital, but they make great birthday presents for children. This balloon option is also more expensive than the air or Mylar ones, but it still isn’t more expensive than the flowers that come with some bouquets. It is possible to give individual flowers with helium balloons delivery, but this does limit some flower choices. If one has limited time to get the flowers before they have to be delivered, then this purchase also helps keep one from rush ordering any arrangement that isn’t pre-made or being custom made by a florist.
Choose a helium source – they vary wildly in prices
The helium balloons delivery industry uses mostly industrial helium, which is expensive because it comes largely from natural gas wells and because it needs to be separated from the other gases. But if one has access to a tank of compressed air, one can get all the helium one need.
To get into the compressed air tank, one will need a scuba tank. The scuba tank has a smaller tank on the bottom, which will fill with air. Then one will connect the scuba tank to the compressed air tank. The scuba tank will be filled with air, and one will need to pump air out from the bottom of the scuba tank. The scuba tank has a valve, which one will need to open.
To pump out air, press the valve, which will move the valve, and air will flow out. Open the valve, and start pumping. This should be very slow at first. The compressed air tank will have a pressure relief valve on the side. The pressure relief valve will open, and air will flow out.
Before one close the valve, look at the valve to make sure it is all the way open. If the valve is half-open, one will waste air. When one has pumped out the air, close the valve. Now, link the scuba tank to the helium tank. For this, one will need a nozzle, which is a cone, and the end of the nozzle will be underwater. The end of the scuba tank will go underwater. Put the nozzle at the end of the scuba tank.
Choosing the right balloon style to suit the event
There are three basic types of balloons: latex, foil, or Mylar. Each one has advantages and drawbacks.
Latex balloons are the most popular, but latex balloons are more expensive than foil or Mylar balloons. Latex balloons come in 40 or 60-inch-wide sizes, and they are sold in packages of 100. The 40-inch balloons are sold in packages of 20. Foil balloons are made from thin sheets of plastic or metal, and they are sold in packages of 20. Foil balloon packages are smaller and lighter than latex balloon packages. Mylar balloons, known as Mylar balloons, are made of light, thin plastic. They are more expensive to buy than latex balloons, but Mylar balloons are cheaper to buy than foil balloons.
Latex balloons are more flexible, but Mylar balloons are more tear-resistant. Foil balloons are stiffer and more durable than latex balloons, but they are more fragile. Latex balloons come in a wider variety of colours, but Mylar balloons come in fewer colours than latex balloons.
Latex balloons are natural, biodegradable, and recyclable. Foil balloons are not biodegradable. Latex balloons inflate more quickly, and Mylar balloons inflate more slowly. Latex balloons last longer in storage than Mylar balloons. Latex balloons last longer than foil balloons when inflated and deflated repeatedly.
