Of all the things you have to worry about when it comes to owning a bounce house rental business, the last thing you may think about worrying about is the blower cord. One of the most essential parts in setting up a bounce house is having a functional blower, and because these blowers are so powerful and constantly running while the bounce houses in use, it’s necessary to have the blower hooked up to running electrical circuit be entire time you’re using it.
This, however, can actually become a problem. In order to have the blower hooked up to a power outlet that the entire time the bounce houses being used, you will need to make sure that you have a very long extension cord. Generally the moonbounce manufacturer does not send the blower with an actual long extension cord, but it’s fairly easy to find an affordable one at your local hardware store. But once you have your extension cord you find that you run into another problem – how to keep people from tripping over the cord.
Some people are not accident prone and all, and yet then there are those who are constantly getting into accidents no matter where they happen to be. Eventually you’re going to come across one of these types of people during the time you own your rental business, and because the cord is likely to be stretched for fairly long distance, it’s very likely that they may trip over it. There are, however, a few things you can do to help make sure that no one trips over the cord for your bounce house.
You should first know that no moonbounce manufacturer will recommend that you put the extra cord underneath the bounce house. To work properly about housemates have a flat surface. What, then, do you do with the extra length of cord? Try curling it up near the edge of the bounce house, and if you can play something over it, such as the box with a cutout for the cord. You may also want to get some staples that you can put in the ground so that you can staple down the amount of cord that goes from the blower to the outlet. This will completely eliminate the possibility of someone tripping over the cord, but it will drastically reduce the chance.
