Walmart states on their site you are able to return the empty tank to them....I checked the balloontime website and it says you can also leave it out with your recycle bin to be picked up and recycled. I have done it both ways without a problem.

Yes, but the larger the balloon the more helium that is required to fill it. The product decription shows it will inflate 50 9-inch and 27 11-inch balloons. It should fill approximately 15-20 12-inch balloons.

answer 5
yes they will... the number of balloons you can inflate depends on the size you choose to create - larger sizes yield fewer filled balloons

answer 2
I have used the tank to re-fill mylar balloons that I've had for a few years and it has worked well. They stay inflated about as long as when they were new. I would guess that how many times they can be refilled would depend on the condition of the balloon itself.

No. This is a hazardous gas-- you will have to go through a company which handles these kinds of gases. I know the hospital that I work for uses a company called AirGas, and NexAIR. Hope this helps.

I did not see a refill valve on the tank I bought, so I would say most likely a one time use. Unless there is a way to fill it through the black rubber fill spout...

Absolutely NOT. There is a instructables hack on how to DIY it, but no H2 person would dare refill it. It is disposable by design.

Depends on the size you inflate your balloons? The less helium you use, the more balloons you can inflate.

answer 2
You can fill about 50, give or take, regular 9" helium quality balloons. The bigger the balloon, the less balloons you will get. Also, try not to overfill as this will also reduce the quantity you get.
