Jungle Jumps Offers Inflatable Inspection Tips

Pacoima, CA, May 24, 2012 --(PR.com)-- Maintaining high quality, trouble-free equipment is a critical aspect to your inflatable business. Inspection regulations for inflatable equipment vary from state to state. Many states require large inflatable equipment be inspected and certified on a yearly, or more frequent, basis. A certified inspector of the state will generally perform these inspections.

The following are key areas of your equipment to inspect periodically yourself, which will ensure that the inflatable is functioning properly, reducing risk of injury or damage to the equipment.

· Check each anchor point to ensure that it is snug. Look for worn or cut straps and missing D rings.
· Inspect the blower tubes and retaining strap and buckle to ensure they are in good condition and the blower tube connection is tight.
· Make sure the blower flaps fall freely. The blower should have no exposed wire or loose bolts or screws. Also make sure the mesh guards over the air inlet and outlet are secure and intact.
· When inflated, the walls should be firm and upright. The bed pressure should provide firm footing.
· Check all surfaces of the inflatable for debris, tears, holes and stressed seams. Be sure to inspect the Velcro flaps and deflation zippers.
· Make sure there are no tears in the netting.

If you do detect a problem or malfunction with the equipment at any time take action immediately. Equipment that is not functioning properly should never be used. The risk of an accident is too great. The best solution for this is to provide comparable equipment from your inventory prior to the event. Regular inspections, before and after events, will keep most problems from arising.
