Helium and Hi-Float™ Information
Please note:  Correct balloon inflation and application of hi-float is necessary.  Over inflation of balloons can cut the number of balloons per tank by almost half.  Estimates only - temperature, humidity and altitude can vary float time.  Numbers are for Qualatex balloons only, lesser quality latex balloons will not offer the same float times.  Float times are applicable for inside balloon use only.  Balloon shrinkage is normal.
Please note:  Double Stuft and Designer Color Balloons float times are not inclusive in this table and float approximately 1/2 the time listed.
