  • Close the cylinder valve after each use and when cylinder is empty. Remove the regulator and replace the cylinder protective cap before transporting any helium cylinders.
  • Never use any balloon regulator, cylinder or valve fitting that is damaged, leaking or malfunctioning. Have the product repaired or replaced immediately.
  • Do not allow anyone to breathe helium from cylinders or filled balloons.
  • Do not open the cylinder valve before attaching a balloon regulator on the cylinder valve.
  • Do not allow children or any unauthorized people to handle cylinders or use balloon filling equipment. 


Safety Warning:

All helium tank cylinders need to be secured; this is the renter's responsibility. Helium is a not-toxic, non-flammable gas, however it is dangerous to breathe in the gas from the cylinder, or even from an inflated balloon. We recommend that you transport the helium tank cylinder in the trunk of your car. If you must transport it in the passenger compartment, make sure it is secured and you have at least one window open at all times. NEVER TRANSPORT WITH THE GAUGE ATTACHED!

*Note: only in certain circumstances are customers permitted to transport our tanks in automobiles.
