I want to build a party room. I already got a room in the basement
that is not used so that will be the room. But what I want to do is
make the room air tight. Then I want to find a way to remove all the
air in the room so I can fill it with helium. The goal is to make the
room filled with helium so when we have parties everyone will talk
like donald duck from the helium. I know getting the helium in the
room is no problem since I can open several tanks inside the room to
fill it, sfter everyone is in there. But what is the best way to make
it airtight and remove the regular air so that it's 100% helium?
Would a high power shop vac remove enough air?
A shop vac won't work, you'll need a high power
laboratory vacuum pump. I would suggest that you
stay inside the room as it is being pupped down
so you can check for leaks. Have a roll of duct
tape handy for sealing any leaks you may find.

Just put a dye made from a mixture of 50% chlorine laundry bleach, and
50% ammonia floor cleaner in the helium. It will shine bright under a
blacklight. When the shining cloud reaches the vent, close the vent.
