Test Period Minimum of 1 hour. 
Test data are acquired and recorded manually for level measurement and by system's computer for temperature measurement. 
Leak rate is calculated from last 1 hour of test period data. 
There must be no dispensing or delivery during test.
Temperature Average for product is determined by a minimum of 10 thermistors.
Groundwater Groundwater presence must be determined to a depth of 5 feet below grade in tank excavation backfill.
