Does this need Recharging?
When extinguishers are recharged, a tag or label must be attached to each extinguisher that indicates the month and year recharging was performed and the name of the person or company performing the service [see NFPA 10(98), Section 4-5.5].
In addition, each extinguisher that has undergone maintenance that includes an internal examination or has been recharged is required to have a “Verification of Service” collar installed around the neck of the extinguisher [see NFPA 10(98), Section 4-4.4.2]. The exception to this rule is carbon dioxide extinguishers that have been recharged without removal of the valve assembly.
The “Verification of Service” collar, usually made of plastic, serves as visual proof that the extinguisher was disassembled and maintenance performed. It must be of a type that cannot be removed without the removal of the valve assembly and must include the month and year the service was performed.

Does this need Hydrostatic Testing?
What type of cylinder?
High-pressure cylinders (e.g. carbon dioxide) that pass the hydrostatic test must be stamped with the tester’s identification number and the month and year of the test.
Low-pressure cylinders (e.g. dry chemical, wet chemical, pressurized water) that pass the hydrostatic test must:
- have the test information recorded on a metallic label, or similar durable material, affixed to each extinguisher that indicates the month and year the test was performed,
- the test pressure used
- the initials or name of the person performing the service
- the name of the company they represent [see NFPA 10(98), Section 5-6.4].
At certain intervals, fire extinguishers are required to be pressure tested using water or some other noncompressible fluid to help prevent unwanted failure or rupture of the cylinder [see NFPA 10(98), Chapter 5]. This is called hydrostatic testing and includes both an internal and external examination of the cylinder. Because this testing requires special training and equipment, it needs to be performed by an approved extinguisher servicing company.
The exception to the rule for hydrostatic testing is non-rechargeable stored pressure extinguishers (e.g. dry chemical extinguishers), which are required to be removed from service 12 years from the date of manufacture.
