Fire Extinguishers: Refill or Replace?

Fire extinguishers are your first line of defense if a fire breaks out at your Michigan business. They can often stop the fire at the source, as long as the fire is spotted in time. But to do so, you need to be confident that your fire extinguishers are fully charged and ready for action. That means refilling or replacing every fire extinguisher after it has been used.

Do you have fire extinguishers that need to be recharged? Call Fire Pros today at (800) 968-2871 or contact us online to schedule fire extinguisher recharging services in Ann Arbor, Grand Rapids, or the Detroit metro area.

Should I Refill or Replace My Fire Extinguishers?

Most commercial fire extinguishers have a service life of 12 years or so. If your fire extinguishers are less than 12 years old and the cylinders appear to be in good condition, recharging them may be a cost-effective option. For smaller home or automotive fire extinguishers, the story may be different. They are often manufactured to lesser standards, allowing for a lower price point. These are typically not worth the trouble or expense to refill. If you are unsure about the prospects of refilling a fire extinguisher, talk to our team at Fire Pros. We can look at the fire extinguisher and determine if it will be worth the cost.

When to Replace a Fire Extinguisher

A non-working fire extinguisher is useless in a fire, and it could lead to problems if you waste too long trying to get it to work during an emergency. Any old or damaged fire extinguishers should be replaced immediately so that you know all your fire extinguishers are working properly and ready for an emergency. You should consider replacing a fire extinguisher when:

  • The fire extinguisher is over 12 years old
  • Its cylinder shows evidence of corrosion, leaks, cracks, or damage
  • The gauge is missing or not working
  • The pin is missing or broken
  • The inspection tag is missing or illegible
  • The handle is loose, wobbly, or damaged
  • The hose or nozzle is damaged, clogged, or ripped

At Fire Pros, we can provide new fire extinguishers, as well as recharge services. If a fire extinguisher is losing charge over time, it can be a sign of a leak and should be replaced.

What If the Fire Extinguisher Is Only Partially Used?

A partially charged fire extinguisher may not be reliable in a fire. Even if only a small amount of the suppressant chemical was used, the remaining pressure may not be enough to successfully put out a fire. Have the fire extinguisher either recharged or replaced according to its age and condition.

Not a happy customer




Review of Fire Pros, LLC

Not real happy. When I ordered the inspection, I asked for 2 strobe lights to be moved. Jason wasn’t planning/prepared to do that. I was hoping to save money by having the inspection and strobes moved at the same time. Not Jason’s fault, but somebody dropped the ball.

After the technician showed up, completed the inspection of the galley fire suppression system and extinguishers but didn't show up with extra fire extinguishers to complete the hydrostatic inspection of the fire extinguishers that needed to be tested. waiting to hear back from company to find out when the technician will show up and complete the rest of the inspection.
