Save up to £220 if you replace your RRS EcoFirex

Updated: Mar 10

Replace your RRS EcoFirex and save over £220 in the next 10 years.




The RRS EcoFirex plumbed-in fire extinguisher has been a popular choice in motorsport due to its price, however we have noticed the significant difficulties and costs in servicing them.


We have worked with PD Extinguishers to provide a solution – replace the cylinder with one of their systems. In 2 years, the savings will almost pay for the replacement. Over the life of the bottle you save an additional £280.

The Background

Under Motorsport UK regulations, “All extinguishers must be serviced in accordance with the manufacturers guidelines, or every 24 months, whichever is sooner”. (K3)

There is additional criteria coming in 2022 (Announced 2 years ago) which means FIA approvals will be required where a plumbed-in is mandatory. (This is already the case for new-builds)

To maintain the FIA approval, a system has to be serviced by the manufacturer (or their agent). When we originally wrote this article, the only service centre was in France.


Working with PD, we now have a swap-service where you send us your old RRS cylinder and we send you back a newly serviced PD cylinder and a replacement nozzles (Which simply replace the nozzles on the RRS system). The cost of this is £100 + vat


The cost of servicing a PD system is just £30 + VAT, this is much cheaper than most other manufacturers. As the new cylinders will last 16 years (7 services) - this means you will save around £30 every time it is serviced.

We're sorry there isn't anything more we can do - but hopefully you will see we're doing what we can by giving a financially better solution.
