Special Instructions:

Do not pressurize any extinguisher that shows signs of mechanical damage,
corrosion, or which has reduced pressure without being discharged.  In such
cases, release pressure and perform hydrostatic test.  (See FPFIREEXHYDROT).

Items to Check & Initial Completion:

1.___ Remove any obstructions to visibility and easy accessibility.
2.___ Inspect shell for dents, broken hanger attachments or hangers, corrosion
      at seams, damaged threads, and legible operating instructions.
3.___ Check for broken seals, bent, damaged, or missing pins, or any other signs
      that extinguisher has been used or tampered with.  Regardless of gauge
      readings, if seal or tamper device is broken, release pressure (without
      discharging extinguishing agent) and check for proper level of
      extinguishing agent.  Repressurize extinguisher and check for leaks.
4.___ Tap gauge to see if it is jammed or immovable.  Read gauge.  If not in
      operating range, check for leaks and repressurize.  Inspect gauge casing
      and crystal for damage.

      obstructions in nozzle or hose.
