Within the British Standards, all types of extinguishers, apart from carbon dioxide units, require an extended service every fifth-year anniversary. Briefly explained, each foam, water, powder, and wet chemical extinguisher, must undertake a test that empties their contents.
This ensures that a unit discharges correctly and that an internal inspection can be made. Therefore, new sealing parts are added and a new medium is used to refill these units, if compliant, they are then put back into service.
