Well, close enough is NOT good enough, especially in the case of a BF, and if you or anyone else thinks it is, then you deserve to be sued. Further, WTF are you doing burying a new check before
you test it.
A properly installed
check should take just as long to pull and replace as any other BF, be it above or below ground.
