Ideally all bounce houses that you purchase will last for a very long time, making it easy to build your reputation and your business. Unfortunately, however, things happen that we don’t anticipate, and when bad things happen to your inflatables you’ll need to figure out what you should do. You’ll need to discern if the situation is fixable, and if so if it’s something that you can repair, or if you should shed your losses and purchase a new inflatable from a bounce house manufacturer.
Types of Problems
The inflatable pump is one of the key elements in this business and is something that you need if you have any chance of getting your bounce houses inflated before a party is over. Almost all bounce house manufacturer send a pump with each of their inflatables, but they are not indestructible, and occasionally something will happen that will cause the pump to stop working. When this happens you have two choices: repair the pump or purchase a new one. In the case of a pump, many times it is a good idea to simply cut your losses and purchase a new one, as a pump is extremely important and having one die on you in the middle of your setup. You should be able to find a new pump for your inflatables from the bounce house manufacturer that you originally purchased your jump house from. It is often not a good idea to purchase a second hand pump, or one from another manufacturer, as you want to make sure that your inflatables work perfectly with your new pump.
The Bounce House
Of course the bounce house is also extremely important for your business, and having a functioning one is vital. One problem you may run into is that your bounce house may wind up with a hole in it. This can happen even if you are extremely careful about what you allow on your bounce house. If this occurs, you have two options as well: repair it or junk it. Many times you will find that a bounce house manufacturer will actually sell a repair kit that can help to get your bounce house fixed in a very short amount of time. Whether you opt to use this kit depends on how large the hole is, and where it is located. A large hole right in the middle of the house, for instance, may not be something that you want to repair yourself, yet a smaller hole near the back of the bounce house may be easily repaired.
