What's wrong with this picture?

Notice the copper tubing curling from 6 o'clock counter clockwise up to about 11 o'clock? It doesn't go anywhere. That's because someone removed the mechanical leak detector, which was probably in slow flow and irritating the customers. In our training we warn folks not to do this. In fact we learned last year about a $15,000 fine from a state UST agency to a UST operator who did just that.

What’s Wrong Shear Test Port

What's wrong with this picture?

Notice the ball valves on the metal stems to the right of each shear valve. They're not supposed to be there. A lazy tester installed them to avoid the trouble to connecting to the test port to test the lines. If the dispenser was hit and the stems were also damaged the shear valve wouldn't work and a spill would happen regardless.
