I just acquired a Kidde disposable home fire extinguisher. It is a standard dry chemical ABC extinguisher. It is still full of agent, but it is not pressurized, and the plastic “pin” is missing. I was wondering if it would be safe at all to recharge, or if it would blow up in my face. By the way, it has a plastic valve assembly. (Standard, cheap Kidde extinguisher style!) Thank you!
What happened to it to cause a depressurization? It IS from 1996, well over the 12-year expiration.
I honestly think it should be replaced with a new extinguisher since it might not be safe to have it recharged.
with everything going on with kidde id keep it for display
Also, I was going to do it myself. I know how to.
Well, I found a few videos from reliable sources who recharged practically the same disposable . So, now I can water my plants with a fire extinguisher.
