Fire Extinguisher Recharging Services
A key element of maintaining your fire extinguishers operational and dependable is always keeping them charged effectively at high pressure. Over time, even an unused fire extinguisher will likely lose some of its charge; to counteract this inevitable process, you'll need a professional to recharge them.
In a similar way, a fire extinguisher that has been discharged will certainly need to be recharged before you can use it again since the needed pressure for proper usage is lost even if not much of the suppression agent was used. This is the reason why you can not test a fire extinguisher for training or testing purposes without making it temporarily unusable.
