Tennis balls are made with an internal pressure of 14 PSI, and packaged in a pressurized can. Pressure is released when you open the can and pressure in the ball escapes through it's porous rubber. Hitting the ball during play forces the internal pressure to escape even more. Balls lose new bounce quickly after you open the can.

Tennis Ball Saver surrounds the balls with 14 PSI pressure during storage. This stops the natural leakage from balls. Also if stored for about 4-8 weeks, it will force pressure back into the balls giving them new ball bounce. To test balls, drop them from 100" To be good they should bounce over 53".

If you're tired of throwing away tennis balls after one use because they're dead, then you definitely need to get a tennis ball saver. The tennis ball saver keeps balls pressurized, just like the can, so they won't go flat as quickly. Plus, it's almost the same size as a tennis ball can, so it will fit right into your bag.

Don't throw good balls away for lack of bounce. Keep them fresh in a Tennis Ball Saver.

      Really prolongs ball life especially when you only have a set or two on a can. Can save balls for up to three weeks with really good bounce.

          Comments about Gexco Enterprises Tennis Ball Saver:

          The product is pretty self explanatory. Insert the balls, screw the top until it reaches 14 psi marker, nothing to it after that. But after 2 weeks the balls came out the same soft balls they were going in. What I noticed is that as I screw it down, I can feel the pressure building up as I near the 14 psi marker and so I put more umph in twisting. But once it gets past the 12 psi marker, I hear a hissing sound. Twisting becomes easier. That sound is the sound of the pressure finding a gap in the seal. I inspected the seal, no nicks, and grease or oil, whatever is on that seal is still good. I intend to buy another one just to see if what I have now is defective. To make use of it, I twist it down enough to where I don't hear the hissing sound which is just before 12 psi.

              works with modifications

                Comments about Gexco Enterprises Tennis Ball Saver:

                Here are the pros. The ball saver is strong and holds air pressure of 14 psi which is the pressure in a can of tennis balls. But my purpose was to keep a can of balls with only one set on them at original pressure.

                Here are the cons. The ball saver does NOT keep the pressure at 14 psi nor restore original tennis can pressure.

                I modified the ball saver by drilling a hole in the top and putting in an automobile valve stem and pumping the pressure up to 30-40 psi. This restored the pressure to the balls.

                So, sure, buy the product. But modify it to make it work properly.

                  Would this work for raquetballs?

                    A:

                    Racquetballs are no longer pressurized, so the tennis ball saver wouldn't work with the balls.

                    A:

                    The Tennis ball saver can be opened by twisting with some pressure. The grooves should twist to align before lifting.

                • Q:

                  Does it return the pressure back into old tennis balls that have already gone flat?

                    Over time, this unit can force air pressure back into flat tennis balls and repressurize them, but this process usually takes about a month.

                    All you have to do is put the tennis balls inside and screw on the lid.

                  • A:

                    The way this tennis ball saver works is you squeeze the top and bottom together. When you do this, the o-ring compresses the air inside to 14 psi.
