RECHARGE FIRE EXTINGUISHERS IMMEDIATELY AFTER ANY USE
Fire extinguishers are under stored pressure over time valve assemblies, gaskets, seals, o-rings, collars, ring pins, chains, lock wire seals or the extinguisher cylinder will wear out, crack, leak out stored pressure contents, have failure, freeze or become damaged over time. One of the reasons why there are monthly & annual inspections for fire extinguisher service or the recharge and refill of portable, fixed or wheeled unit fire extinguishers in Tacoma, Washington.
Once the fire extinguisher has been used it should be refilled and recharged. The stored pressure and contents of extinguishing agent once used will leave residue on seals and will not seat properly after the extinguisher has been used, which causes any stored pressure to leak out of the extinguisher cylinder. If this occurs the contents of the fire extinguisher (dry chemical) may cake at the bottom, service isn't possible and the cost of replacement will be incurred over the lower cost of a refill and recharge.
