Should You Refill or Replace Your Fire Extinguisher?
The fire extinguishers you get from Bizzy Fire Control are designed to last a long time up to 12 years or more especially when you have us come out and inspect them once a year. What this means is that as long as the fire extinguisher shell stays in good shape (i.e. not cracked or dented), you will be able to recharge your fire extinguisher as many times as you need to.
That said, fire extinguisher replacement isn’t a bad idea either—especially for smaller fire extinguishers. If you’re not sure whether you should have fire extinguisher repair or fire extinguisher replacement, just call Bizzy Fire Control! We can inspect the used fire extinguishers and recommend fire extinguisher repair or fire extinguisher replacement.
Remember that you should call us any time you use any amount of extinguishant—even just a tiny bit. Releasing just a little bit of extinguishant could result in your fire extinguisher being unable to protect you the next time around.
Note: the above only applies to fire extinguishers that have been used. If you haven’t touched your fire extinguisher in a while and it’s slowly losing its charge, call Bizzy Fire Control to inspect it—you may have a leak or a small crack in the shell which would automatically require full-on fire extinguisher replacement.
When Does an Extinguisher Need to Be Replaced?
Obviously, you want to have your fire extinguisher recharged or replaced every time you use it. But when else should you replace your fire extinguishers?
A fire extinguisher should be replaced any time its charge has been compromised. This means fire extinguisher replacement if:
The hose or nozzle is cracked, ripped or clogged
Pin on the handle is broken or missing
Handle is wobbly
Inspection tag is missing
Shell is cracked or damaged
If you have fire extinguishers in your building that have been used recently and have lost some of their charge, call Bizzy Fire Control! We can come take a look at your fire extinguisher and help you decide whether you need fire extinguisher recharge or fire extinguisher replacement. And if your fire extinguisher is damaged or malfunctioning in any way, we can replace it straight away!

How Long Is a Fire Extinguisher Good For?
Portable fire extinguishers can last anywhere from five to 15 years with appropriate care. If you want to know how old your fire extinguishers are, check the tag on each fire extinguisher for dates and the manufacturer’s instructions. You should have the gauge checked on your fire extinguisher checked once a month to ensure it is properly charged. If you find out that your fire extinguisher is not full or is old, you might need a fire extinguisher refill at our Johannesburg or Nelspruit offices.
Can a Fire Extinguisher Expire?
Fire extinguishers will expire over time. You may notice your fire extinguisher is expired if the neck on the extinguisher has weakened, which allows compressed gas to escape. Getting a fire extinguisher refill for your business is your only option if your extinguisher has leaked over the years. Unfortunately, fire extinguishers like this will have lost most of their pressure and will not work well. This is why it is especially important to schedule regular fire extinguisher inspections and recharge services!

Buying a fire extinguisher for your Johannesburg, Nelspruit, or Pretoria, home or office is an important step toward protecting yourself from fire. At Bizzy Fire Control we want to provide you with the most effective fire extinguishers available. Before you buy a fire extinguisher, it is important that you do your research so you can determine the best type of extinguisher for your building.
Fire Extinguisher Classes
you buy a fire extinguisher, make sure you know which types of fire it is
designed to extinguish. It is important to first recognize the four classes of
A – ordinary combustibles (wood, cloth, paper, plastic, etc.)
B – flammable liquids (oil, gasoline, etc.)
C – electrical fires
D – flammable metals (sodium, titanium, magnesium, etc.)
extinguishers usually have big letters on the side that indicate the class of
fire they are designed for. It is imperative that you choose the right type of
extinguisher—for instance, you would never want to use a class A-only fire
extinguisher (usually filled with water) on a class C electrical fire. In
general, most business owners throughout Johannesburg, Nelspruit, and Pretoria,
choose ABC fire extinguishers, which are suited to put out most fires that
normally occur in a building.
Fire Extinguisher Sizing
size of the fire extinguisher that you will need is dependent on the hazard
class of your building. Fire extinguishers come in various sizes and the most
common are 2.5, 5, and 9 Kilograms. Our extinguisher technicians will evaluate
your building layout and occupancy and recommend the most effective
extinguisher for your building or equipment.
are many technical aspects to consider when purchasing an extinguisher that the
average layperson will not be able to consider without a lot of research. Our
technicians are trained to assess your building and select the proper
extinguisher for your specific application.
Purchasing a Fire Extinguisher
ABC Fire Extinguishers – ABC dry chemical fire extinguishers, also called multi-purpose fire extinguishers, use a dry chemical. Commonly purchased in office buildings, they are appropriate for the most common types of fire, including wood, paper, and plastic fires, as well as flammable liquid and electrical fires.
Purple K Fire Extinguishers – Often purchased for use by oil, gas, chemical, and utility companies, Purple K dry chemical fire extinguishers use a purple-colored dry chemical that is electrically nonconductive and is extremely effective against class B flammable liquid fires and class C electrical fires.
CO2 Fire Extinguishers – Using a cloud of white carbon dioxide “snow,” CO2 fire extinguishers remove heat and quickly smother class B and C fires without any messy residue. CO2 fire extinguishers quickly cool down flames and can reach and exterminate even hidden flames. CO2 fire extinguishers can be used safely on all electrical and electronic equipment with no risk of electric shock to the extinguisher operator or damage to devices. They are not recommended for use against class A fires, as the speed of the discharge is likely to cause flaming materials to blow away, potentially spreading the flames.
Kitchen Class Fire Extinguishers – Designed to supplement a kitchen fire suppression system, K-Guard kitchen-class fire extinguishers contain the unique liquid fire suppressant and are designed to knock down flames, cool down grease and form a vapor securing blanket to prevent further fire outbreaks. K-Guard kitchen-class fire extinguishers are usually purchased for food-service establishments such as restaurants, convenience stores, food courts, and cafeterias.
Clean Agent Fire Extinguishers – Clean agent fire extinguishers contain DuPont FE-36, a chemical that is clean, electrically nonconductive, environmentally friendly, low in toxicity, and highly effective against Class A, B and C fires. Non-magnetic fire extinguisher models designed for MRI rooms and operating rooms are available. Clean Agent fire extinguishers are often purchased to protect computer and data storage centers, control rooms, laboratories, and hospitals.
