fire extinguisher servicing

Fire extinguishers should be serviced annually by competent person. They must also undergo an extended service every five years (except CO2) which consists of discharging the extinguisher, checking inside for corrosion, refilling, renewing or ring seals etc and re-pressurising. CO2 extinguishers are required to be overhauled every 10 years, which is quite expensive.

Extended services are much more expensive than the annual service. It is sometimes cheaper to buy new extinguishers than to have the extended service carried out.
