the replacement date and needs replacing. Time to go to the store and snag a replacement for the one in the kitchen.
The kitchen extinguisher will go below and replace or augment the other one in the basement as a spare. It still 'gauges' correctly and is probably useful. The liklihood of needing one in the basement is a lot lower than needing one in the kitchen.
I'll replace the unit in the basemsnt, but the one from the kitchen will still be available under the heading, 'if all else fails'.
The fire extinguisher is in the same category as the duty firearm. It is simply there and available in case it is needed.
Hopefully they will never be needed but they are there in case they are, much like car insurance. You buy it hoping you never need it.
