What Are Water Fire Extinguishers Used for?

Water extinguishers can be used on Class A fires only. These are fires involving combustible materials such as paper, wood, fabric, textiles and some plastics. As these are materials commonly found in just about all domestic and commercial settings, you’re likely to have a need for this type of extinguisher in most homes and businesses.

Water extinguishers should never be used on other types of fire, especially kitchen fires and fires involving electrical equipment.

Water Extinguishers FAQs

In which areas does Scutum South East provide water extinguishers?

Our water extinguishers are available to businesses operating in and around London, Surrey and the wider South East England area.

What are water extinguishers used for?

Water extinguishers should only be used on Class A fires involving combustible solids like paper, wood and fabrics.

Does Scutum South East offer free consultations for water extinguishers?

Yes – you can get free advice from our experts either over the phone or by arranging a free site visit from one of our experienced engineers.

Do water extinguishers need to be serviced/maintained?

Under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, all water extinguishers should be checked by a qualified person – such as one of our BAFE-registered engineers – at least once a year, with an extended service every five years.

How quickly can Scutum South East deliver fire extinguishers?

We believe that once a fire risk and the need for a particular fire extinguisher have been identified, it’s essential that the means for tackling any fire be made available as quickly as possible. We aim to deliver within 2-5 days of you placing your order.

Are water extinguishers available to hire?

If you have a one-off event or project that needs a particular fire extinguisher, you don’t necessarily want to buy one outright or get tied into a long contract – that’s why we make all our extinguishers available for long or short-term hire.

Is Scutum South East accredited for fire extinguisher installation?

We’re accredited for all the fire safety services we provide, including the installation of water extinguishers. You can discover more about our accreditations by clicking here.

Do you also offer fire extinguisher disposal?

Yes – all fire extinguishers have a limited lifespan and need to be disposed of properly when they are no longer usable. Scutum South East can ensure safe and legal disposal of all your expired and old fire extinguishers.

What is the colour code for a water fire extinguisher?

Although all extinguishers have a red body, most water fire extinguishers have a red label as well, although some have a white label with red lettering.

How long do water extinguishers last?

You should get up to 12 years of use out of a water fire extinguisher, as long as it doesn’t get damaged or corroded in that time. Make sure that your extinguisher is regularly inspected and serviced by a trained engineer to ensure that it is still in good working order.
