Q: How long do the balloons last?
A: The balloons will not pop unless punctured. However, over time some balloon colors (like red) may fade a little depending on the product line and climatic conditions. Typically, the lower the product line the faster certain colors may fade and the sun UV intensity is the other factor involved. We put the lifespan at 6 months because about that time the balloons tend to accumulate dirt and other outdoor grime on their surface, deteriorating the original sheen/brilliance of the balloon and we feel should be replaced. They will stay shiny as long as the surface is relatively clean.
Q: How big are the balloons?
A: BalloonBobber® Enhanced is 17" tall and 16" wide. DuraBalloons® are 18" in diameter. These measurements may vary depending on the temperature of the balloon during inflation and how much you inflate them.
Q: What do you fill the balloons with?
A: Because the balloons are supported by a fiberglass rod, no helium is required. Do not use helium as it is a very active gas and will escape thru the material over time causing a saggy look. You may use one of our air pumps.
