Not sure why but-

The delivery time was very slow. I’m sure this is somewhat out of your control but it distracted from my overall experience just the same.

Backflow Supply

Thanks for the review James. Yes it did take 5 business days for the gauge to get to you using UPS. That is the standard delivery time from Salt Lake City, UT to your location for ground delivery. But your comment has made me wonder if during check out the webs store shows the amount of time to ship, and if not is there a way we can include that so customers are not frustrated by delivery time. Worthwhile for me to check into that so I do appreciate the comment. Reviews are only as good as the honesty behind them.

On line purchase

I found this to be a very efficient process. The kit came complete and exactly when it was scheduled to be at my shop. Very good experience!

Needs to be calibrated

Good price but it did not come calibrated so I had to send it off and pay more money. In the end it cost me more.

Backflow Supply

Tim- The test kits do come calibrated from Mid-West, generally no more than 7-10 days old. The certificate and all other paperwork that Mid-West puts in the case are under the foam in the top of the case. Sorry you paid an extra price for calibration.
