So I guess you want to run water threw it? If your not using the compressor. It would work and should be silent. Just don't expect them to be able to dump huge amounts of heat.

It could work. passive possibly, it wont be great for the temps. You would need to have a way to get your tubs to connect onto it with out them leaking though. There will also be a lot of pressure as they have small tubs.

Oh, well in that case, yes, that's completely plausible.
