Not too much otherwise you’ll need to use the extinguisher
marlej23_11/09/2019 22:20

I would not reccomend use of any extinguisher at home :).


What would you recommend letting the house burn down?

Not recommended for indoor use? Damn, was gonna order for kitchen


I seem to remember that powder extinguishers are very, very messy and so if you used it on a small fire you'd be cleaning up for hours which is why it's not recommended for internal use? Probably best to go for a CO2 extinguisher for the kitchen I should think or just get a fire blanket :/

Where does it say they're made in the UK? It looks identical to the ANAF extinguishers they used to sell in Aldi/Lidl, so it's probably made it Italy and rebranded:

Imagine all that cleaning after. Much easier to just claim insurance :).

You're at it
Heh funny enough I ordered a 5KG CO2 extinguisher for £36 from these guys on Tuesday which arrived yesterday.

Oh and don't use CO2 on kitchen fires (I'm assuming by "kitchen" that you mean hot oils) get a fire blanket.
Cold.

The Kidde KS1KG is only £1.79 more. A much better deal.

"What did you do after the fire started?"

Try putting water on an oil or electrical fire. This should answer your question.

It’s a “letting the house burn down” to a clean up ratio.....?

Thanks for a generic link to an amazon basket. Unfortunately, it's no use to anyone!
used a powder extinguisher once at home - never again. School boy error.

Yes it stopped the dishwasher fire but the powder went to every room in the house.
The CO2 one is probably best for kitchens for electrical fires. It can put a fire out in a PC etc without affecting the electronics.
"British Standard does not allow powder extinguishers in offices and living accommodations any longer.

The clean up after applying a powder extinguisher is also very difficult and the powder causes damage to soft furnishing, carpets and computer drives etc"

Also very bad if you inhale the powder!

Good deal, but this is NOT the type of fire extinguisher for home or office use
Was right type for 30 years but now is not.
Ok good to know.
British Standards are recommended code of practices only, but yes, under BS5306-8:2012 it suggests that powder extinguishers should not be provided for indoor risks unless basically its the best extinguisher for the task and has been properly assessed. Say for a gas boiler or such like. The reason is not purely for the mess (although they are incredibly messy) but also because they can quickly fill a confined space so that you can't see what you're doing. (It's also a bit grim to breathe in.) Is a bit corrosive too and will attack electrical circuit boards.
I'm in the fire extinguisher business and wouldn't recommend one of these plastic valved extinguishers. Spend a bit more and get one with a metal valve assembly. For reference, in my hallway (outside the kitchen) I have a 2 litre Foam and a 2kg CO2 extinguisher (out of sight behind the door). In the kitchen I have a fire blanket. Hope that helps.

Hi was that one reduced it sounds a good price,was it from Amazon or the company direct?I would like one that size
Best overall fire extinguisher for household including kitchen is water mist extinguisher.

Sorry It was a "refill" through their eBay. It's £40 normally however I didn't need the hose or horn.

Hi thanks,I shall have a look
Did you have time to negotiate payment from Facebook before the Fire Brigade put it out?
great price!
Powder is really only used on electrical fires - it's INCREDIBLY messy indoors! It doesn't reduce heat so a fire could reignite.

Do you have a link , as that is crazy cheap for a 5kg even just a refill . Do u need to return your old one on a refill or is it just lacking the horn and hose ? Iam using on a fish tank so have no use for the horn or hose , Thanks in advance
