Fees are collected from Testers to bid on jobs. The price that the Tester is charged is shown before bidding on a job. The prices will vary and slide depending on the size and scale of the job.

IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO PRINT OR SAVE A COPY OF EACH BIDDING TRANSACTION AND RETAIN IT FOR YOUR RECORDS. If we make an error on your bill, you must tell us within 120 days after the error first appears on your bill. We will then promptly investigate the charge. If you do not tell us within that time, you release us from all liability and claims of loss resulting from the error and we will not be required to correct the error or provide a refund. If Verifiedbackflow.com has identified a billing error, we will correct that error within 90 days.
