I find it disgusting to burn the flag. Yet at the same time thatís still theft and assault on his part.

I keep one at the front door, one in the hallway upstairs and the one in the kitchen is by the door. I don't want my extinguisher by the stove, because that's the most likely place for a kitchen fire and if it's big I won't be able to get to the extinguisher.

Those are for grease fires and kitchen application. Class B is for flammable liquid pool fires.

Purple K is a better agent than used in standard dry chemical extinguishers, but it comes at a cost. it can be much harder to clean up. And it is very corrosive.

Standard dry chemical is basically sodium bicarbonate. Just vacuum up the residue.

Race cars have gone to AFFF based system. Water with an additive that makes foam. Works very well for flammable liquids.
