Can I Use The Same Electric Air Pump?

I was just wondering if I can use the electric pump that I you to blow up my grandson's pool, to blow up balloons? I want to build a balloon arch, so I don't need the balloons to be helium.

Electric Balloon Pump

Hi Vanessa,

I haven't tried this myself, but I think it should work, as long as you can slip the balloon neck over the pump nozzle without damaging the balloon and you can easily control the air flow. You need to be able to turn off the pump once the balloon is fully inflated before it explodes! With most professional electric balloon pumps you can switch between continuous air flow or bursts of air by pushing down the valve or pressing a button.

For a once off situation, you should be fine with the pump you have. If you plan to do air filled balloon decorations more often, you should consider getting an electric balloon pump.

Ebay often has good bargains. Just search for electric balloon inflator or electric balloon pump.

Good luck with your balloon arch.
