Why trust a third party that may be screwing the test up? Jezz, is there no honesty anymore? Most testers (including myself) would have never faked a test, but it's happened. I know how to read a test report, and that's the only way I'd sub it out: approve the test before the sub is paid, and turn him in to the State if I found a fraudulent test. Believe me, getting a backflow ticket is not an easy gig; only fools cheat, and their ticket (and their plumber's license, if applicable) should be pulled, forever. Backflow rant over.
