    Temporary or not they still need to work and be tested. Even with a air gap a rp is needed for the ignorama that throws the hose in the tank instead of using the plumbed air gap.

    a real air gap is "show over" ~ no way to connect a hose to one

    I bet in reality, they don't get tested much if at all. :dizzy:
