Default Fire extinguishers.

I am selecting fire extinguisher, my old Halon one has low pressure and is too big, so I want to get a new one and mount it at the sliding door under the potoman. The easiest mount to attach to the 8020 aluminum framing will be this https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...=ATVPDKIKX0DER.

I selected either this small 1.4 lbs https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...=ATVPDKIKX0DER or a larger one 2.5 lbs will fit under the place under the cassette toilet. Amerex Halguard has small and large unit at similar prices.

Comments are welcome.

Just a personal bias but I prefer Halon 1211 which is still available. It saved my butt last year and I was able to get it refilled. I just bought three new 1211 extinguishers. Can't remember from whom but I bet Amerex has them.

Can you educate on the advantages of Halon extinguishers. All I have are the old style dry chemical ones.

Fire off a dry chemical extinguisher and you are left with an extreme corrosive mess to clean up ASAP. I don't know if the Halon substitute extinguishers work as well as Halon 1211 but I know Halon 1211 works very, very well so I stick with it.

In the second post someone from the Corvette forum claims Halotron has about of the efficiency of Halon. Halon is no longer manufactured due to ozone hole restriction. I found 2.5 lbs. Amerex on Amazon for over $200 with seems as a good bracket.

New type of fire extinguisher, many benefits. Only downside is not refillable because once activated, it runs till it is out.

It is interesting product made in Italy, see the link, it leaves some residue of potassium salt. Potassium nitrate with some other chemical is used to produce and propel the flame suppressant. It is warrantied for 3 years only. Sicurezza

I will go with either Halon or Halon replacements such as Halotron or Haliguard. CO2 extinguishers are also good but too big. Amerex used to sold 2.5 lbs. unit but it is no longer available.

As I was looking for fire extinguishers a few minutes ago I smelled something burning like cables, insulation, something electrical. My first thought was did Google marketing is going so far to discharge smoke to keep me looking? Checked PC, power supplies, smell was only in this room not outside or the rest of the house. Finely eureka, it was the small fluorescent bulb in the ceiling fixture.
