- Monthly Inspections. The NFPA requires inspection of your extinguisher every month. During this check our technician will visually inspect the unit, clean, check pull pin as well as provide documentation of the inspection.
- Annual Maintenance. An inspection of each of your extinguishers is often required by NFPA or the local AHJ. Depending on your jurisdiction and the type of unit the inspection may need to be performed by a licensed professional.
- Internal Maintenance and hydrostatic testing. Stored pressure ABC extinguishers are very common, and they often require internal maintenance every 6 years and hydrostatic testing every 12 years. Other types of extinguishers may vary in their internal examination and testing intervals.
