Balloon Weight for 5 Helium Balloons

Hi there,


How much should a balloon weight weigh if i wanted to tie 5 balloons to it?

ANSWER

Hello!

I am assuming you are planning to make a centerpiece with helium filled 11" latex balloons, correct?

According to the helium chart published by Qualatex, an 11" latex balloon has a lifting capacity of 10 g (0.35 oz). Multiply this by 5, and you get a lifting capacity of 50 g (1.75 oz).

That means your weight needs to weigh more than 50 g. A weight made of a sand-filled balloon would work perfectly fine for your centerpiece.

Or you could use any of these ready-made balloon weights being sold at Amazon.
