What string can I use to secure helium balloons in pool?

by Katia Lopez
(Miami, Florida, USA)

I would like to decorate my pool with floating balloons but not sure what the best materials to use? Please assist me in finding the right sting/cable/stick to use. Thank you in advance.


Hi Katia,

I would use either curling ribbon or - if you want to give the illusion that the balloons are kept in place by an "invisible" force - clear fishing line.

Have you also seen my page about which balloon anchors you can tie your helium balloons to?

And here are some pointers about the best types of balloons to use in a pool, or generally for outdoor decorations.

Good luck with your pool decoration! Would love to see a photo.
