I would not be comfortable with a Dive Shop that "passed" a tank on a vis after it was failed by another shop. Did you ask SC if you could look inside the tank to see why it didn't pass? Did you ask the "passing shop" if you could take a look inside the tank to see for yourself what it looks like?
All Sport Chalet VIP Inspectors are required to attend a certified training class before doing a VIP, and they are required to send tanks into their main office for a final analysis if they don't pass.
Did you verify that the VIP Inspector at the "real" dive shop was properly trained and certified? I know that not all dive shop employees that conduct VIP's are trained and certified to conduct the inspections.
