Question about Bally Total Fitness Exercise Ball

1 Answer

I'm using a compressor with a nozzle that fits into the valve hole of my Bally ball pretty tightly. It won't inflate , even when I use about 80 lb. of pressure. Do I need a special attachment?

    You need to remove the plug and then fill with a v shaped attachment. I use the one on my compressor.

HOW DO I GET THE PLUG OUT OF A BALLY BALL


Just pull it out with your fingernails, or carefully use something, like maybe a plastic fork (tines up) to work it loose. Be careful not to puncture the ball. Just curious, did you inflate the ball, or someone else?

Therapure spa does not stay inflated


1st ck to see that your inflation valves are staying closed , this is a safety feature , that prevents over inflation and over rowdy behavior while inside tub
valves have a lock over cap that should be tightly closed

If this is good , start at bottom and work your way all over skin of tub with a wet paper towel with a bit of soap on it , bubbles will appear at hole(s) yes there can be more than one
common sites to really look at for holes are (entire bottom, top edge where one enters tub frequently, around hose fittings
) holes can be patched with std pool patches or use kit that came with tub

How should I pick a bowling ball?


You should use a ball that weighs around 1/10 of your body weight. If you weigh 90 lbs., pick an 9 lb. ball. Try to put your fingers in the ball holes, your thumb should go all the way into the ball for a good fit. The fingers and thumb should touch all the way around the holes without being tight.

My compressor will not hold pressure


Hey, David,
The first thing I'd look at is the check valve. That's the last fitting in the air line going into the tank. Brass. Take it out and take it apart. You should find a little stopper attached to a spring. Make sure the stopper is directly on top of the hole. reassemble and try. If no joy, probably the pressure valve.

Good luck!

I HAVE A DAYTON 3VE49 TURN IT ON FAN RUNS GETS SPARK BUT IT SEEMS TO NOT BE GETTING FUEL I HAVE TO BLOW AIR THRU THE FAN PUMP HOSE TO FORCE THE FUEL TO THE SPARK I CHECKED THE LINES CLEAR THE PROP INSIDE...


Check the fuel lines and the nozzle. Make sure there are no leaks from the air/fuel lines at the nozzle fittings or air pump. The air pressure from the pump is no where near what you forced to the nozzle with an air compressor. You can push fuel past a plugged nozzle to get it to fire with your compressor, but the air pump can not even if it's new. Check the lines for leaks with soapy water. take off the nozzle and clean it to be sure it isn't plugged. Dont loose the spring inside to nozzle. Check the pressure at the pump testing port. You can buy a gage as descibed below at an ATV dealer. use a valve stem with 1/4 threaded end and a shrader valve at the other to adapt this for testing. Extra low pressure pencil-type gauge registers 1-20 psi in 1/2 lb. units. Do not use a standard tire gage, They are not accurate at low pressures.


Good Luck

How do you inflate a Bicycle tire with the small portable pump? the air is coming from the needle to inflate balls and not from the nozzle. It is a Schwinn small portable bicycle pump.


Usually, the needle used to inflate balls is an attachment to the pump. Is there a lever near the fitting the needle comes out of? Moving the lever 90 degrees from its current position should allow you to pull the needle attachment out. The hole the needle came out of is where the valve stem from your tire goes to pump the tire up. Jam the stem in the hole, crank the lever back to lock it in and pump away. Unlock the lever to release the stem when the tire's inflated and you're golden.

Instructions for a Schwinn Airdriver 1100 pump. How do you use it??? With the metal lever up or down? I can't get it to work either way!


The switchbladenozzles web site is down, but here is the content from the trouble shooting page circa 2008 from archive.org:

(SCHWINN BIKE) PUMP
• Using the SWITHCBLADE pump nozzle (both 5-in-1 and 4-in-1):
EXPLAINING THE INTERNAL SWITCHING MECHANISM
To get best results from your SWITCHBLADE equipped pump, it is helpful to understand how the automatic switching
mechanism works. The internal switch (changing the air from flowing to the hole for bike tires to the needle for
sport balls) senses back pressure from the object you are trying to inflate. When you insert the needle into the
ball, (or put the nozzle on a bike tire valve) the back pressure inside the ball (or tire) flows into the nozzle
and pushes the switching mechanism to shut off the outlet you are not using.

PROBLEM: Air is escaping through the wrong outlet
NOTE: In the case of a new pump/nozzle OR a pump/nozzle that has not been used for a long time, it is possible
excess lubricant used in the manufacturing process and/or dirt have caused the switch to stick in place.
Don NOT attempt to block the outlet you are not using. Common sense tells you to do this, but in fact it will
only create back pressure in the channel you do not want to use and actually further block air from being
directed to the correct outlet.
FIRST SOLUTION
After making sure your nozzle is firmly attached to the tire valve (or in the case of a sport ball, the needle
is firmly and completely inserted into the ball) give three to five quick firm strokes of the pump. Doing this
should create enough back pressure in the nozzle to free up the mechanism and activate the switch.
SECOND SOLUTION
In certain circumstances, the two most common of which are a brand new bicycle inner tube (note: many new inner
tubes actually have NEGATIVE pressure inside, as they have had the air sucked out of them at the factory to make
it easier to put the tube inside the packaging) or a totally flat sport ball, rapid firm pumping may not be
enough to activate the switch. In these cases do the following:
SPORT BALL:
Insert needle is firmly and completely into the ball.
Give the ball a hard squeeze (this will force air up the needle and trigger the internal switch).

Bought a newwprosport fitness ball from Target. no instructions


You just use a pump with a pointy nozzle, even an air compressor with the tip for inflating rafts and inflatables. You should fill it with enough air so that it is firm when you sit on it, but it should still have about 2" of give. (knee's @ a 90 degree angle when sitting on the ball). Hope this helps!
