Water Fire Extinguishers - More Information

Water Fire Extinguishers

What are water fire extinguishers?

Water fire extinguishers are for use on Class A fires, involving solid combustibles such as wood, paper and textiles. They can be identified by their white label stating 'Water', and are available in 3ltr, 6ltr and 9ltr sizes. They are a popular piece of fire safety equipment commonly found in offices, homes and other low-risk environments.

How do water fire extinguishers work?

Burning materials are cooled when the spray or jet of pressurised water, stopping the fire and preventing re-ignition.  The water not only cools the fuel but extinguishes the flames of the fire.

Some water fire extinguishers have additives that make the water lose its natural surface tension so it can better soak into the burning materials, meaning they can be more effective for their size than a water-only extinguisher. 

What are the benefits of using water fire extinguishers?

Water fire extinguishers have an excellent ability to penetrate into the core of burning materials to cool and extinguish them. They are low toxicity and suitable for use near both children and vulnerable adults and are more environmentally friendly than other types of extinguishers. Water fire extinguishers are comparatively cheap, and simple to refill.
