Personally tho I wouldn't recommend it as if that gauge is for your output pressure, you'll have no way of knowing when the extinguisher is getting low or is actually empty.
I would highly recommend a dual gauge valve, one that shows internal bottle pressure and your output pressure. Not only so you can see when it's ready for a top up but also for your own safety.
I would consider to be the least you should get;
There may well be other cheaper ones, I don't know all the of the available brands/types, but in my opinion this is entry level, it shows bottle and output pressure and you can attach a flow valve.
Take the flow valve into account when looking, you can get them with one already on or you can buy it separately, either way you need both.
There's a list/map of places which do refills here http://www.ukaps.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=4612 let me know in that thread if you find anything out of date.Aqua sobriquet said:This has probably been asked before but there are a lot of pages to scan so can I ask, what do you do when the extinguisher is empty? Can it be refilled easily/cheaply?
