Default Beachball blowing, how much time do you need?
Hello, I have a question to all of you who already have inflated a beachball by mouth. What size was the beachball, and how many minutes did you blow until the beachball was fully inflated?

regualr sizes like 20-24" only take a short wihlea: aprox. 3-5 Minutes. Depending on the valve size. Some have these stupid smal valves that create a lot of backpreassure..

Large beachball, well under 5 mins. I have good lung capacity , can do most inflatables in little time. Sometimes as a good as a pump.

Things like 48 inch balls I could blow up by mouth in about ten to fifteen minutes depending on the size of the pinch valve, or how they'd cut the safety non return flap inside it. These days though I'll use either a hand pump, or an electric inflator. Keeps all sorts of crap, bacteria and mildew from out of the item...... plus all my inflatables I've got these days are huge items.... I love the 'giantess' side of the scene where you can totally sink down into something. Forget mouth inflating these, even electric mains inflators have their work cut out inflating these in one go..... I've prematurely burnt out about three Intex brand mains inflators over the years as they don't like continual running for periods of half an hour or more!

Large inflatables are extremely enjoyable, but smaller inflatables have their place in fun as well.
