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, ten, or even twenty years down the line. Much like many products, it can be difficult to tell when you need replacements! When a fire occurs you absolutely need to know without a doubt 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 and 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.
Fire Extinguisher Servicing
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 twelve 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.
Fire Extinguisher Recharging
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.
