They require service every 6 years for anyone other than residential applications. Generally, any ABC extinguisher 5 pounds and under is cheaper to buy new than to have serviced.

A dry chemical extinguisher should be turned over to loosen the powder once a year. If your current extinguisher still shows good pressure and the powder moves freely when turned upside down it will most likely work when needed. They're very simple devices; just a valve stem and a nozzle. You must service an extinguisher after any discharge, they won't hold pressure once the powder fouls the valve stem.

Local fire extinguisher and fire protection inspection companies can recharge your extinguisher if needed. Monoammonium phosphate must be recycled and should not be discarded into a landfill.

2 is one and one is none, so for $10 why not get a fresh one to keep on another floor?

Edit: the above is for NY state, outside the jurisdiction of NYC

Relegate it to the least likely point of ignition and use the new ones first. If you have to dump 2.5-5 pounds of powder on your fire you should have left by then.

You can turn the extinguisher upside down and shake it a bit. You'll feel the powder shifting. If its loose it'll still work when called upon. Moisture and Monoammonium phosphate don't mix. It cakes and will clog. Extinguishers are charged with nitrogen which has no moisture content. If you want to get rid of it call a local extinguisher company and ask if you can drop it off. We would take them and service them and inspect them, then sell them to local companies for forklifts and other special hazards (2.5lb extinguishers are not allowed in commercial applications here, except for special hazards like forklifts)

Also, dry chemical extinguishers produced before 1984 are no longer considered safe and are removed from service when discovered.

Some fire stations will refill for free, so it's worth asking. At the very least, might be cheaper.



I know some are marked specifically for auto, but I think this one should be fine because of its rating.

The link seems to redirect to the Ace homepage. I can't find the specific fire extinguisher. Do you have another link?

Hmm, that's weird. Worked for me. But try it now.

If it doesn't, just search for item #87892 or "first alert fire extinguisher". You can also find it by going to the main page and clicking on the ad for "October Savings".

Added screenshot of ad. Might be able to PM at Lowe's, but you might need to load up or print off the full ad to get the $9.99 price.

Thanks OP. Picked up two of these - my local Ace has them apparently... I have a pretty old extinguisher in the kitchen and it says it's "ok" or "good" on the meter (green) but you never know... would suck if there were a kitchen fire and I pull the pin and the thing fizzes out. Plus, aren't you supposed to have extinguishers checked every several years and rotate through them accordingly?

Also, I thought that it's generally not recommended to recharge/refill extinguishers -- is that different with extinguishers that are branded as "rechargable"? And where do you go to recharge them? The local fire station?

EDIT: I think what I heard was that if you're going to recharge you might as well just buy a new extinguisher because it may cost the same or more to recharge.


Dang, printing out and PMing to Lowes/HD is a great idea - I have GCs to burn up at both places. Ah well... I think it's OK to give my neighborhood Ace my business every now and then lol
