Fire Extinguishers

How often should I replace my fire extinguisher?

I have a fire extinguisher about 3 years old. What should I do? Thanks.

Most home style fire extinguishers are not serviceable or refillable. Some are but most are not. In my area to have a fire extinguisher serviced runs around $20 each. As you know, you can go down to your local wally-mart and purchase a new for around the same cost.

If you are in question about the integrity of your safety equipment, it's better of to replace it. The new unit should have an expiration date indicated on the box or extinguisher. Make a note of it life expectancy with a black Sharpe on the bottom and then replace it as needed.
