Each service includes a new certification.
Important! Bottle service and recertification is a service and not an exchange. For an efficient process you need to provide your contact info and plan ahead for Ground shipping times (to/from) as well as the actual service and processing time. Turnaround times are dependent on the time of year (longer at the start of racing season). Some bottles and systems require very specific service work that adds processing time (ex: bottles must be pressurized for X time to check for leaks). Plan the schedule ahead or have a second bottle per system that you can swap in.
Routine: flush and discard the old fluid, check all parts for wear and age issues, refill with fresh AFFF fluid, pressurize, and relabel. Includes certification.
Refill (after discharge): check all parts for wear and age issues, refill with fresh AFFF fluid, pressurize, and relabel. Includes certification. Some additional costs may be required if the system has been triggered.
Lifeline ABF foam fire bottle service and certification is required for Lifeline fire systems every two years, or whenever they have been triggered (discharged). We provide factory-trained recharging services to ensure the utmost safety and performance of your car's Lifeline fire-suppression system.
Lifeline ABF suppressant is a non-toxic, ozone-friendly suppressant, but it will dry and harden with age. This service is highly recommended and required if you want your fire system to be there when you need it. Service and recertification every two years is critical!
- Please DO NOT fire the system if it has not already been fired
- Bottles that are 10 years of age or older cannot be serviced
- Bottles that are 6 years from their last service date (or original fill date) cannot be serviced
