nice one... im going to sound stupid now isit 1 stat per tub?
nope this is a heated room with an oscillating fan to prevent temperature stratification so one stat does the lot with very little variation from top to bottom,these stacks only 5 foot high so the diff is just a degree or two which bearing in mind each box is 4X2X1feet is nothing to quibble over,and it works just fine.
none of this would apply in an unheated room or anywhere subject to draughts.
