The fire extinguisher wasn’t ready this morning - however a couple of things…
Talking with the staff there (if I understood correctly) that a fire extinguisher 6 to 12 old can get a re-cert by checking the pressure. After 12 years old they need to empty it an do a hydro type test.
I took our old house one in and it wasn’t worth checking as for $15 more I got a brand new one.
Basically if it’s old we are better to buy new.
So for $56.00 +tax we can get a new 5.5lb ABC refillable, advantage brand and they will put the tags on it to show when it was new and therefore get a re-cert when necessary.
I tool the liberty of buying one for VHS - which I will donate.
Since they charge $5.25 to dispose of old extinguishers we need to decide if we just keep the old ones around as extras and have a number of new or re-certs in the space to meet code/insurance or whatever.
