    i have no clue, new to the leak detection site i belong to, if Lance Anderson designed it, it'll prolly work well for pools. i usually clean galvanized pipe with an excavator and a chain. Grip it and Rip it :laugh:

    I'm licensed, but rarely test anymore. I keep my CEU's current though. There are quite a few companies who only test around here and they have a good bit of work.

    I wish all the cities who enforced back-flow inspection and testing were consistent throughout.

    I'm not sure why they wouldn't. When I was testing I always gave the customer a copy of the report and put all permit numbers on the invoice along with the results of the test.

    I was mostly curious about what a tester writes up when the system uses antisyphon valves.

    Part of our regs is that you have to leave a copy of the test with the backflow at all times. We put them in sandwich bags and tape them to the backflow.

    I send a copy to the water district, city, HO on every test.

    Nothing, you don't test an AVB so you don't fill anything out.

    Yeah, they're awesome. Since you can't test them, you never really know if they're working...
