Andorras BSS runs out shortly so we need to get her re-tested, all the work is done (touch wood) with the exception of the Fire extinguishers which need testing and re certifying, does anyone know a local company that does this?

Hi Dave

It might be cheaper, and easier, in the long run to buy new ones, i got mine off of Ebay for litle cost (£25 for a 1kg extinguisher and fire blanket, including the price of delivery) but if you wanted to re-charge them try your local fire station to see if they have any recomendations.

Thanks Glen that's what I initially thought but I'm told that if the seals are intact they can just be re-certified which is much cheaper.

This seems to come up regularly, it all depends on whether they are due a major service or not.  A regular test only costs a couple of quid.  If you want to be green then an exchange serviced unit is far more eco-friendly.  I am proposing to arrange a servicing session at the end of the season if anyone is interested.  For more details PM me.  Regular tests are a good idea because they can get gummed up even if holding their pressure.

A reputable extinguisher manufactured in 2007 will not require to be refilled until 2012 but ought to be checked every two years.  Forget about BSS the real question is do you have vital safety equipment that works?
