How To Tell if You Need a Fire Extinguisher Replacement

While owning an appropriate number of extinguishers is highly beneficial, the primary concern we encounter with our patrons is whether they will continue to serve five, 10, or even 20 years down the line. Much like many products, it can be difficult to tell when you need replacements! When a fire occurs, you need to know that your fire safety tools will meet your needs.

Luckily, it’s not as difficult as it seems. There are some hard and fast rules that necessitate replacement, including:

  • Exterior damage to the extinguisher. If the handle, hose, or nozzle show signs of damage, replace your extinguisher right away.
  • Missing components. There should be a sealed locking pin on your extinguisher, and if it’s missing, you need to have the unit replaced immediately.
  • Bad gauge readings. Many fire extinguisher types feature a PSI gauge that will indicate if your unit is charged appropriately, lacking pressure, or missing a charge. Pay attention to this gauge: If it’s not in the green, it’s time to replace.
  • Missing inspection instructions. All fire extinguishers come with a standardized inspection sticker that determines the time periods in which yours should be checked by a professional. Without this, it is nearly impossible to properly assess the age and usability of your extinguisher.

Industry-Leading Fire Extinguisher Service

Many standards will teach you that a rechargeable extinguisher should be recharged and serviced roughly every six years; and that a non-rechargeable one should be swapped out every 12 or so. But the truth of the matter is that there is no solid time frame for replacements.

The best and only way to determine absolutely whether your extinguishers are usable is to have them professionally inspected routinely. We would recommend at least an annual inspection to guarantee your extinguishers are able to perform adequately in a time of crisis.

Our fire safety team at Unifour Fire & Safety services the Southeast in fire extinguisher replacement, inspection, sales, recharge, and repair. Contact us online or give us a call at 866-511-5540.

Invest in a Rechargeable Fire Extinguisher

Many (if not most) types of extinguishers are available for a recharge as opposed to a replacement. Wondering which would meet your needs best? A few factors play into this decision, including:

  • The cost of recharge or replacement for your extinguisher
  • The size of your fire extinguisher
  • The type of fire extinguisher
  • How many spent units you currently possess

It can be a lot to consider, right? Don’t worry! Our experts can provide all of the knowledge needed to assist you in choosing the option that suits your needs best. We offer both excellent replacement and recharge services, and we can guarantee your needs will always be the deciding factor in our efforts.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does a fire extinguisher last before it needs to be replaced?

Disposable fire extinguishers should be replaced once every 12 to 20 years, while rechargeable devices should be recharged every six years.

Every extinguisher type has its unique life span, which varies according to your manufacturer and how much regular maintenance you’ve had for your fire extinguishers. You’ll also need new equipment if your hose or nozzle has been damaged.

Are fire extinguishers reusable once they’ve been partially used?

Your extinguishers should be replaced or recharged as soon as they’ve been used. Even if your extinguishing agent is 80% full, your equipment will have degassed, rendering it unusable. As its pressure declines, its efficacy diminishes, opening you up to fire hazards.

Can I buy my own fire extinguisher replacement at a store?

While buying certain fire extinguishers at hardware stores is possible, most buyers aren’t familiar with the NFPA requirements for placement, extinguisher types, and sizes.

If the fire extinguishers you buy are not compliant with OSHA’s regulations, you will be charged a fine per extinguisher.

Do I need to replace my fire extinguisher if I drop it?

You’ll need new equipment if your extinguisher shell is cracked or your handles have become unstable. A fall can also expose the delicate part of the shell, which could lead to rust.

It’s important to check your pressure gauge every month and after a fall. Extinguishers rely on pressure. If it diminishes, you can lose functionality, so it’s best to request a repair or inspection if your extinguisher has been dropped.
