I know I promised to really fire the discussion about stiffening felt in my next post so I am digressing slightly, don’t count this as a post just a little diversion until tomorrow! I want to ask the question ….. how long does it take to inflate a yoga ball with a foot pump????? This morning I have tried to inflate my new ball with Cathy’s foot pump, tried being to opperative word because after about 10 minutes of huffing and puffing only the tiniest smidgen of air seemed to have entered the blooming thing while I myself was all puffed out from the effort of trying to get it inflated! Later I will try to inflate Cathy’s ball (bought my own in Aldi yesterday) in case hers is any easier but to be honest if this is as easy as it gets it would be days before I could finish a vessel using one as a shaper. Any thoughts???
Sorry, can’t help you with this one, but I sure had a big laugh about your post…I hope for you someone else can advise you on this 🙂
I would find someone with a little compressor to inflate it. if someone has one of the blow up beds they often come with a little electric air pump. failing that find a kid to use the foot pump.
in case you are still struggling:
hope this helps!
I’m not sure about where you live but gas stations in the US have air compressors to fill up tires. That would work – just need to be careful and not get too much air.
I use a hand pump (posh version of what you pump balloons up with) and it hardly takes any time, are you sure it doesn’t have a “slow” puncture…that is faster than the speed you can get the air into the ball lol!!
Hmmmm….Bought mine used at a garage sale…Already inflated… Guess it really was a bargain!!! Hope by now you’ve conquered that contrary ball and are well on your way to making the Guinness Book of World Records largest felt vessel:-)
I have an electrical one, bought in a campingstore….. To inflate our kidsswimming pool in summer .
A foothpump takes me too much time:) ……..
