Firebottle - buy new vs recertify


Recommended Posts



I our Lifeline Zero 2000 firebottle needs a recertification.


Recertification costs $115 + shipping + hassle

New one costs $240 with shipping to my door.


So for about less than $100 extra I get a brand new bottle instead of a reused old one.


Is it this expensive to recertify them? (This is with lifeline)

The bottles are good for 10 years before they require further testing. Assume you swap it out then and you get 10 years of use and require 4 recertifications (every 2 years). You'd save ~$400 over an 10 year period.


Yes, that is about the going rate for recertification on them.

Yeah it’s a pain to box well and send them in, and I believe they have to be emptied for you to ship.  I sent mine for recertification last year, and the place said “eh it’s supposed to be depressurized but we get a lot that are still full…”

is there a recycling process for the bottles? i'm in similar boat, but prefer to recycle whenever possible. think my bottle is steel so should be doable....but is there a service to recycle?


You empty it in Franks garage and then you throw it in the dumpster.
