Several AS; help needed. will buy BEER!!! #4 Pool fill valv

This is a self test script for my pool fill valve.

Measure zero flow then some flow while open. 3. Are lines tight? See if flow stops once dead space in lines are full. If continued water flow, either lines have a leak or the pool is filling. 4. Is the valve is closing correctly? Observe for any flow following valve closure."
