    Hi Guy's great forum, Can you help?

    I'm in the process of redoing my house and need to replace my radiant combi boiler

    My requirements are -

    4 bedroom house
    2 Bathrooms, one with a wetroom (6 bodyjets and rain shower head)
    Plus the usual extras - CH, Kitchen with Dishwasher/washing machine, downstairs toilet etc

    I think I have narrowed it down to the Atmos 24/80+ or the WB 550cdi. My question is in your opinions what would be best for me - cost is a factor but the WB is only slightly cheaper.

    I live in SW-London so if I were to go for the Atmos would I be able to get a decent plumber to install / service etc also what sort of cost would it be for the install for wither of these?

    Thanks in advance.

    Dre

    Out of the 2 choices you have posted about I would go for Atmos. Never fitted one, but anything must be better than WB over hyped rubbish :rolleyes: (yes I know I personally hate WB :mad: )

    If you want a real quality boiler look at the ATAG.

    The Atmos is poorly represented over here and is a niche product.

    The Highflow range is well established and we have had zero problems with the condensers.

    So my vote would be the 550CDi. Or the more expensive and interesting ACV Heatmaster 35TC.

    Go with the Bosch, or thought about that new vaillant, is it the 931?
