Actually $124 - you get a dollar off if you like them on facebook, twitter, or google. Plus they have free shipping

They say the price is half of ADA, but the mini violet set is something like $95, and the ADA set is something like $100.

The pictures I could find compare VIV to Do!Aqua. Would be nice to see them next to ADA.

I do see VIV spreading across USA retailers, and that is a good thing.

Those "ADA" pipes in that link are still the Do!Aqua just saying. Thanks for trying though, have to look close and you can see the Do!Aqua logo on the pipes that are translate labeled ADA

I agree, it's not that much different, at least to do! Aqua. (And correction, they are $92 and $106, respectively and without shipping)

And based on their pictures, they looked like ADA/do pipes that failed quality control but are still usable and effective.

I am an online retailer who is selling ViV pipes. As a sponsor here, we look to provided TPT members the best possible price. Their is never any hurt in showing a competing offer and asking what kind of additional discount may be available....

My point is that we cannot compare VIV to Do!Aqua but say that they are a fraction of ADA cost. Apples to apples.
