VIVOSUN AP-15 First Impressions

The dial never turns off.

The added tubing and manifold make this an even better value. I keep the pump and air valves in the box to lessen the noise. This one is far better than I anticipated! It could easily run a small fish room. For a solid working, quiet pump, this is about as good as it gets. The pressure isn't as great as I hoped. The current from the bubble wand is softer but its still a current.

VIVOSUN AP-15 Final Thoughts

Now close to the glass.

The stone is very heavy, so it is easy to position and stays put where you want it. If that is true-then no wonder this is pretty quiet! This one is far better than I anticipated! The pump is so powerful that it pushed off the connection tube several times. I have two of these running in my kitchen and my living room is right next to it. If that is true-then no wonder this is pretty quiet! But if it's in another room, it’s not bad at all.
