Good quality

Thankfully we haven't needed to use our fire extinguishers but I can say they came in excellent condition & fully ready to work. The shipping was timely & I had no issues. I highly recommend this source for fire extinguishers.

Great reviews

I gratefully havent had to use any of the 4 exitinguishers to date. Previous extinguishers, not rechargeable worked very well so trust the name and product! Thank you for a peace of mind development!

Fire Extinguisher Order Review

We were very pleased with the personal service we received by ordering fire extinguishers by phone. As a business, we needed to have the extinguishers billed before the end of the year to comply with our budget and they were so friendly and made sure it happened. The service showing the tracking information was really appreciated and help us plan for the delivery and subsequent storage when they arrived. Would definately order from this site again.

Site was easy to use and the product was as described. The only point of improvmenet I can make is to improve shipping time and shipping comunication by providing tracking notifications.

I had this extinguisher under my kitchen sink for over 25 years, but it worked when I needed it. Wendesday night it saved my life, most of my property and the lifes and property of everyone in a 16 unit apartment building, when my oxygen machine went up in flames and engulfed my bed! It would have been a very different story if I had not had this extinguisher. Ill be replacing it with a larger one simply because I do keep oxygen in my apartment. I was lucky this one was large enough to put out the fire before it made it to the tank, and I dont feel like pushing my luck.

What is the difference between a rechargeable and non-rechargeable fire extinguisher?
It is important to understand the difference between rechargeable fire extinguishers and non-rechargeable fire extinguishers. Non-rechargeable fire extinguishers are intended for one time use only. If you use your non-rechargeable fire extinguisher even once, you must replace it. It will not be effective in fighting a fire. Never test a fire extinguisher by using it. Once used, it will gradually lose pressure and will not be fully charged for use in an emergency. Rechargeable fire extinguishers are intended to be recharged once they are used, or when it loses pressure over time. Once a year or according to your local fire codes, rechargeable fire extinguishers in business or commercial applications should be serviced by a certified fire equipment dealer, in accordance with the service manual and as identified on the fire extinguisher label. If it is discharged, a rechargeable fire extinguisher must be refilled by a certified fire equipment dealer regardless of how much of the contents were used.
The gauge on my unused fire extinguisher is in the red. What should I do?
If a fire extinguisher pressure gauge shows that the charge is in the red zone, a disposable fire extinguisher should be replaced. If it is a First Alert disposable fire extinguisher that is still under warranty, contact Consumer Affairs at 1-800-323-9005 for warranty service. Please note that you must completely empty the unit before shipping, turn the extinguisher upside down and the agent will run out. Since the unit is no longer pressurized, no shipping precautions are necessary. If any of your rechargeable fire extinguishers show a pressure gauge reading in the red, they should be taken to a local fire extinguisher service business to be recharged and serviced if necessary. If it is a First Alert rechargeable fire extinguisher that is still under warranty, contact Consumer Affairs at 1-800-323-9005. Please Note: If you trigger-test a First Alert fire extinguisher, your warranty will be void.
What is a fire extinguisher life expectancy?
Non-rechargeable fire extinguishers generally have a 6 year life expectancy. Keep in mind life expectancy depends on a number of factors. A fire extinguisher should be tested weekly according to the user's manual. As long as the pointer is in the green area or the pin indicator pops back up when pushed, the extinguisher is properly pressurized and ready to use.
My fire extinguisher appears to be almost empty. Will it still work?
For rechargeable fire extinguishers, as long as the needle is in the green, the fire extinguisher is fully pressurized. If you have discharged a non-rechargeable fire extinguisher, it is recommended that you replace the unit.
What do I do if the pin does not pop back up on my unused fire extinguisher?
If you have an unused disposable fire extinguisher and the pin does not pop back up, the unit should be replaced. If it is a First Alert Fire Extinguisher and it is still under warranty, contact Consumer Affairs at 1-800-323-9005 for warranty service. Please note: if you have trigger-test your First Alert disposable fire extinguisher, your warranty will be void.
