Heavy duty: well made.

Received in good condition. Well packaged. Appears to be well constructed. Have not used the extinguisher so cannot comment on performance.

This fire extinguisher saved my landlords building from a cigarette-started fire. It was a six-year old extinguisher, and worked just as planned.

Good buy!

I purchased this product from a local Family-owned hardware store. It appears to be very durable, and costs less then its similar rivals. I may update this post if I ever must recharge it or use it on a fire. This is not the only first alert product I have purchased, and I am very satisfied with the company.

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.
