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.
