only applicable when there is a probe used in each tank and the siphon is
broken during testing.
Tests only portion of tank containing product.
As product level is lowered, leak rate in a leaking tank decreases (due to
lower head pressure).
Consistent testing at low levels could allow a leak to remain
EPA leak detection regulations require testing of the portion of the tank
