I asked why he didn’t test the outlet with the GFCI tester plug and he really didn’t answer the question. I cannot think of a reason why the tester plug cannot be use since you can plug external items into the outlet and the outlet should respond if needed.
Can anyone think of a reason why he would make that statement?
