Question can paintball bunkers stay inflated overnight?

I am trying to save time on Sundays so I am just wondering if I blew up my field around 5 Saturday would the bunkers be plenty inflated still around 12 on Sunday? It is a private field for my team so we are trying to save time. And as a side note to some of you field owners, how many scuba tanks do you think I should use if we have about 12 guys playing? Just a rough estimate if you can based on your experience. Thanks for you help everyone.

When my field was new I would leave it up over night and had little problems, but after time and normal wear and tear on the field, the bungee cords will break down, so one night a sudden wind storm came through and blow them away and the next morning my team and I had to go on a bunker finding mission, 8 of them blow over a half mile away over a barb wire fence across a corn field over a pond and got caught in some woods and every one got holes in them. It wasn't a fun way to start practice. Now we drop bunkers every night. We have 4 leaf bowers now and it takes us less then 20 minutes to blow up an entire xball field, it's worth it for us to take them down every night .

We run 2 bulk tanks with a 10 CFM compressor and never run out of air with over 30 people filling.

Hope that may help
Love
Brad
