Wow!! Great Price
Nice
Heat Added
Great prices and thread, heat added @idontflycathay
Didn't show any in stock at my Homebase but I went for something else just checked if they had any and they did, so the stock check system isn't always right
Carbon dioxide extinguishers can be used on all types of fires.

Every house should have one. Could save lives and/or a lot of money.

"Danger
Do not use on chip or fat pan fires, as it can carry burning fat out of the container. This type of extinguisher does not cool the fire very well and you need to ensure that the fire does not start up again. Fumes from CO2 extinguishers can asphyxiate if used in confined spaces: ventilate the area as soon as the fire has been controlled."

All i know is someone has worked through all the clearance items at homebase and is going to make a fortune on eBay. I don't hate on those type of people. Yes its annoying as a society here we all want a share of the bargains but the truth is if u love a bargain you love money, and if u love money and can make a easy flip on eBay why wouldn't you

It depends how you use them.

Spraying a water based extinguisher into a chip pan fire would be far far worse. A damp towel should be used to put out chip pan fires.

In homes they are far safer than spraying liquid ones onto live electrical appliances for instance.
The first thing people would do after using the extinguisher would and should be to air the rooms / house. Call the firebrigade.

If a gas pipe or appliance is spewing out massive amounts of flames no extinguisher should be used untill tge supply is turned off.

The following makes no sense. This isnt even from a fire brigade. Its just from a shop. They are probably just insuring they don't get sued.

I was talking about an extinguisher. Not a detector.
wow - £6 for a CO alarm?

i give these away to some of my elderly customers when I know theyre going to be sat in front of a gas fire all winter as the boiler is too expensive.

will pop down tomorrow and take a look.

thanks OP

@itchyone was right to pull you up on that, you did say they could be used on all types of fire, which really isn't true, that's dangerous misinformation - free people on here take comments as gospel and might end up making a huge mistake. Nothing personal.

I did say in households. If you had to you could use a Co2 one above a chip pan fire to control it as Co2 is heavier than air.
Obviously its always how you use things.

They should be teaching this in schools. Dont know if they do.

On balance Co2 is safer than liquid based ones.

Its easy to get electricuted with them due to the amount of electrical items we have plugged in, in the average house.
I wouldn’t recommend using a CO2 on a chip pan fire in any circumstance. It has no ability to cool the fuel. It would put the flames out until you stopped applying the CO2 (which wouldn’t be long as small ones have a short duration) at which point it would just reignite.

Class F extinguishers are the best for a chip pan fire. As you rightly say - don’t spray water into an electrical fire. Use CO2. The extinguisher classification is there for a reason.

Of course the best thing to do would be to not have a fire. Don’t use a chip pan for example. The fire service simply recommend you close the door and get out and call for them. The tea towel thing is a bit old hat nowadays.
This is similar to the prices in the stores that closed down a while ago....

Please stop trying to justify yourself. The fact of the matter is that no single fire extinguisher is the correct one for every use in the home. Done. (member muted)

Good deal.
Worth noting that legislation around fire alarms has changed in Scotland. All of your alarms are now meant to be wirelessly? Linked. None of these meet that standard. Mentioned as of interest to 1/12 people in the UK

I assume you mean each alarm should be triggered by another? Which sounds ambitious. But, even in that case, surely one combined smoke and CO alarm would fit the legislation? You don't have to have more than one.

Edited to add: Though having googled it I see it's now compulsory (in Scotland) to have a CO in EVERY room "with boiler, fires, gas hob or a flue." So that's at least two of those in every house where the boiler's not in the kitchen.

It does have a limited ability to cool the fuel as CO2 is freezing cold when it comes out the nozzle. Of course it depends on the size you have.
I dont recommend they do it either but i was making a point. What i said is accurate. i also said if you had to. To get to the switch or get out the kitchen etc
I dont advise anyone to use a pot as a chip pan. Buy a deep fat fryer with a lid not just a pot and a basket.
The advise is to switch of the Electricity or Gas thats heating the pot first. Put the lid on unless it is glass as glass lids will shatter.
It goes on but it always depends what you have to use.

If you lived far away from where the fire station is and you knew your house was going to burn down unless you did something and all you had was a towel or a t shirt etc and some water. Wouldn't you use a damp towel etc to try and put it out.
You may think its old hat but even old hats can sometimes be cool.
It doesnt have to be a tea towel by the way folks and you need to watch it to make sure the fire is staying out. Never try to move the pot.

Life saver. Heat from me
I reserved three of the combi smoke alarm and carbon monoxide detector (£10.79/ea). They messed up my reservation so I got one of them, so they gave me the £25 pack with a smoke alarm and carbon monoxide detector in for £7.50. Bargainnnn
Just bought one in Homebase Dartford. Loads in there. Digital ones too for £9.60. Thanks OP
These were the KIDDE ones
