Fire Extinguisher Types

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!
