Default Hydrostatic Body Fat Testing

I was at my chiropractors office last week and they had some flyers on the counter regarding a mobile hydrostatic body fat testing service for July 1st.

I figured what heck, so I signed up and it was only $49 bux. I've been really wanting to know my exact body fat percentage and have only been using the online calculators and as of today (6/17/10) I'm at 14.9% BF and I just turned 43.

I really wish I had done this when I was still a fat basterd back in March '09- that's when I started my journey and I weighed around 212-215lbs.
*EDIT* I just went back to when I started keeping track (3/30/09) and plugged in the numbers and here's where I started at:
Body Mass Index: 30.8 kg/m2
Waist-to-Height ratio: 0.64
Percent Body Fat: 32.5%
Lean Body Mass: 140.4 lb

WOW! 32.5% Body fat compared to today's 14.9%


So has anybody out there done this test? Sounds pretty simple and quick.
I've also been training for my first 5k run on July 3rd, and it's gonna be interesting to see what my percentage will be by the 1st.
