A SELECT ball will last for a very long time if these instructions are followed.
Straighten the ball out as best as possible.
Shake the ball so that the bladder is hanging loosely and vertically beneath the valve hole.
Allow 1 - 2 drops of SELECT valve oil to drip into the valve hole. Remember to oil the ball regularly so that the valve doesn’t dry out.
Pump the ball up with a SELECT pump. It is important that the bladder is in the vertical position as shown here. Always remember to use the needle.
Use a SELECT pressure gauge to check ifthe ball has the recommended pressure (see recommendation on the ball).
Clean the ball with a brush and tepid water. Dry the ball with a cloth. Place the ball in a ventilated room with a temperature of 59 - 68 °F.
