Balloon Weight and Lift Chart

The amount helium balloons can lift is staggering. So grounding them with the correct weight is important. 
This information is only for guidance and there are additional things to take into consideration before selecting the weight you are going to use. Such as weather conditions, draughts or mechanical fans. also consider anything being added or attached to the balloon such as confetti or money ropes. Remember more you add, the heavier the balloon, the smaller the lift.
