Please allow a minimum space of 20' by 20' on grass or pavement for standard bounce houses The area needs to be flat, dry, and clear of all debris and sharp objects (rocks, sticks, broken glass, pet droppings) before the unit can be set in place An inflatable set-up on grass is always best. Also, remember that all bounce houses have different heights from 15' to 20' - check the dimensions of each inflatable in its item description on our web page If unsure about space needs, check with us. Please do not run sprinklers or mow lawn the same day in the set-up area. Grass clippings in the bounce houses and grass stains are difficult to clean. We recommend that if you need to mow your lawn, please do so a minimum of three(3) days in advance. Water on the inflatables requires an additional set-up fee for cleaning and drying after the event. *Note* if you have frequent problems with rust in your water supply, we cannot setup inflatables to be used with water attachments. Rust can cause staining that can be very difficult to remove compared to the typical grass and dirt clean up associated with typical use of an inflatable unit.
All of our bounce houses, combo units, interactive units, and slides require a continuous air supply and will require an electrical outlet (a normal 110 volt home power source) within 100 feet of the inflatable air blower. We recommend a dedicated 20-amp circuit breaker to run the blower that maintains air inflation of the bounce house. This means that if the circuit being used has several outlets on it, and something else is plugged into it, you run the risk of "tripping" the breaker, causing a power loss. If an inflatable is over 90 feet from a needed electrical outlet, then a generator will be necessary. Blue River Bouncers has a generator available to rent if the need arises.
