Best Way to Inflate the Pavillo Airbed

There are a few ways to inflate these types of air mattress. We have listed those below:

  • Using an electric pump is the fastest and easiest - BOMPOW Electric Pump
  • Using a foot or hand pump is the next best - Intex Double Quick II Hand Pump
  • Using your mouth but we don't recommend this as buyers said it makes you light headed and is painfully slow


If you already have a pump then you may be able to use that if it fits the connection on this mattress. Most pumps come with a few adapters and one of those should fit this one.

The valve opening on this mattress is about 1 cm wide but you can take it off and then its about 1.5-2 cms.
