Helium Tanks

160_F_9055441_lYPqsI2uiunVLp4mywz02mEogkoInZ5PInflate your own balloons for those special events by renting a helium tank from us.  We have all different sizes of helium tanks available to suit your event.  Everything from super-small, small, medium, large and x-large helium tanks are available to rent.

We provide 100% helium for our helium tanks.  Other companies may use other gases to dilute the helium (up to 23% in additives).  Using pure helium from us means that your balloons will float and last longer.

  • Delivery only offered on X-Large Helium Tanks.
  • Applicable taxes not included in above pricing (GST/PST).

  • Quantity indicated is approximate. Number of balloons inflated is determined by the user as we have no control over how big you inflate your balloons or the quality of balloons used (breakage is common with inferior quality balloons).
  • All helium tank rentals require credit card number, photo id – driver’s license number, current address and telephone number(s) are required for security purposes. Payments can be made with cash.
  • See attached Helium Tank Agreement for further details.
  • Weekly & Monthly helium tank rentals available. Please contact us for more information.
  • Please Note: – When inflating balloons, the general rule for untreated balloons is to inflate them on the day of the event.  Untreated balloons will only look good on the day of the event itself.  Left overnight, they will decrease in size and will most likely not float properly the next day.    If you want your balloons to last overnight,  we strongly recommend  treating your balloons with Hi-Float.

Warning and Safety – Helium Tank Cylinders/Helium Usage


  • do not allow anyone to inhale helium gas for any reason.
    Inhaling helium gas is highly dangerous and
    may cause death with any type of use.
  • do not allow anyone to breathe helium from filled balloons.
  • do not open the cylinder valve before attaching a balloon regulator on the cylinder valve.
  • do not allow children or unauthorized people to handle tank cylinders or use balloon filling equipment at any time.
  • never leave a helium tank cylinder unattended in a public area.

If you have a faulty balloon regulator, a damaged cylinder, or the valve fitting is damaged, leaking or malfunctioning – discontinue use immediately. Advise a Balloonatics Designs Inc. team member when returning the helium tank cylinder that there is damage so we can ensure repairs are made immediately.

Ensure the helium tank cylinder is not dropped, tipped over, dragged on the ground or rolled on its side. Safety first at all times.

We are not responsible for the float time of any balloons with any helium tank rental.

If you have any questions, issues or concerns, please call us to discuss.
