When must I replace my fire extinguisher?

Home fire extinguishers are usually not serviceable. 

Replace home fire extinguishers:

  • When they are 10 years old
  • If you have used the extinguisher (extinguishers can be used only ONE TIME) 
  • When the arrow in the gauge is no longer in the “green” or indicates “empty”
  • if there is damage showing to any part of the extinguisher; cylinder, gauge, hose, or handle
