Biasi Riva Plus 24kW Combi Boiler
great boiler for the price
this boiler is easy to install for any competent engineer. could have done with a built in filling loop. cant comment on performance and reliability yet its only been in a week. time will tell.

biasi Rival 24kw
I fitted 7 of these boilers in a block of flats, they were specced and supplied by the landlord based, I'm assuming on price. The boilers go on the wall easy enough and the wiring is straightforward, however the blow off is impossible to fit without shortening the preformed pipework, as it fouls the return pipe. The Flue is seemingly made from wet cardboard and does not fit together very well. Two of the supplied boilers had parts missing as did one flue section, given the next day delivery as they are not carried as stock, a costly delay was caused on more than one occasion. These boilers do not seem very well made and I can't see them lasting much past the two year warranty. Still I may get to fit something decent like a valiant pro 24 when they do break. On a plus point plumbfix couldn't have been more help full and I highly recommend them.

First and last biasi
I find it hard to believe this boiler was tested at factory as when the boiler was pressurised the expansion vessel nut was leaking which was caused by two washers instead of one, not much fun trying to get to once boiler was on wall.
Then once fired up the pump was not running after testing all electrical connections i had found it to be jammed and was given a helping hand with a slotted screwdriver.
The prv pipe seems like it was an after thought as it is just in the way especially when soldering and trying not to melt condence which i had to remove first.
Maybe i just got unlucky but i would say spend few more on something else.
Also note top review is about different model.

Biasi Advance Plus 25kW Combi
great boiler, based on the long standing Biasi M110 now no longer available. Uses a similar heat exchanger.
Supplied with a jig for the boiler isolation valves, dont use it. makes fitting the preformed pipes a lot of agro and is for esthetic purposes only. good control panel, electronic water pressure read out.
bigger KW versions available, almost as quiet as a vaillant combi.
2 more going in by xmas 2012.
