Fire Extinguisher Recharge or Replacement
Is it better to recharge or replace fire extinguishers? When you need fire extinguisher repair services, the answer often comes down to choosing one or the other. If you’ve recently used a fire extinguisher or have reason to believe that your existing extinguishers aren’t effective or fully charged, you will want to elect repair services by having it inspected to be recharged or replaced.
Can I Reuse My Fire Extinguisher?
If you have recently had to put out a fire and used your fire extinguisher to do it, you may be wondering if you can use it again for future events. Most fire extinguishers, such as those used for cooking fires, flammable liquids, or electronic blazes are reusable, however, you should never assume yours are without first scheduling a proper inspection.
While some fire extinguishers are reusable and can be recharged, others require replacement after use. Rather than be repaired, disposable fire extinguishers are best to be replaced immediately following their use. A plastic indicator on the handle is a common sign your fire extinguisher is disposable.
When Do I Need to Replace My Fire Extinguisher?
According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), non-rechargeable fire extinguishers must be removed from service, discarded, and replaced at least every 12 years, if not at a sooner expiration date designated by the manufacturer.
