Typical Boots baiting, with nothing to back it up. You gotta go some to obtain a Cross-Connection Control Specialist or a Backflow Assembly Technician ticket. Coming from someone who has neither, I urge no one to listen to your dribble.

A drain is installed and the drain releases elsewhere physically lower then the rp box. So basically it has to be on a hill in order to have a below ground rp.
I can certainly see the reasoning there. I think the local rules that affect this particular pit install are based on their preferring to have the RPZ instead of the original DCVA, and knowing there are numerous pit installs that would never be upgraded to RPZs if the plumbing had to be completely reworked, and a steal-able brass assembly put within public reach.

Your diatribes fail to take account of manufacturers selling assemblies without isolation valves, which puts the lie to your strident cries that they are illegal

Gawwd, I love it when you talk dirty to me! Actually, you were partially right: it's up to an individual purveyor to set his/hers own regs in their territory, which I've always thought bull, since they're supposedly State regs. Go figure.

States can adopt regional regulations, and many of them do that.

Oh, it gets more fun than that, ANY purveyor in a water district that has their CCS on board can dictate the rules, as they choose to apply them, depending on the political heft behind them to save constituents the monetary outlay.I refused to test for a number of fiefdoms and complained to State Ecology. What results did I have? 00000000000000 I'm suprised I'm not buried next to Jimmy Hoffa.

For some perspective, what is the size of the bypass?

I am not going to lie, I would get a little nervous turning those things down in a hole. If Betty decides to pop and your down there, NOT GOOD.

We have a bunch of Meters that are that deep, and we have to go down and inspect them once a year. We usually pull out a few snakes in the process.

Yeah we always have a 2nd guy up top for these ones and we wear a breathing mask just in case.

If something broke while I was down there.. I would be done for hah- I would just have to float to the top

The bypass is 3/4"

Safety first!
The wire nut for the neutral was actually missing. I put the blue one on there just to make sure no children get shocked.

Those electrical connections are about the most stupefying pikerdom I see. It would have been so very inexpensive to add a junction box beneath the controller.
