His math doesnt add up either..

he says that they have a 25% failure rate, and then says that means 1 out of 8 doesnt work (which is a 12.5% failure rate)

Like SoCal says, dude has way too much time on his hands

What can I say, after twenty five years of backflow testing? That is total bullshit, and who are these weirdos that post such crap?

What I especially liked was the rant about the upstream testcock being the avenue to toppling the nation by way of terrorists forcing in toxic liquids. (as if you couldn't already do that from old-fashioned hose bibs and fire hydrants)

I liked his video of him introducing a "toxic chemical" of cherry red kool-aid via a pressurized system, into the #1 TC. Local water district should ticket his azz right away for intentionally introducing the "toxin".

An RP must have wronged him earlier in life. Maybe it cheated on him and cross connected with an AVB

Back flow assembly Mitch, you don't repair devices, you replace them.
