It shouldn't get that hot, but I would get something to brace it in the space between the tubs so that it isn't touching anything that will melt or potentially catch fire.

1) Scorpios are the most highly sexed of all the signs of the zodiac.
2) Scorpios are prone to excesses: booze, drugs, sex, bad puns, etc.
They usually exploit the weaknesses of others, who fall victim to
their capacity for total lust & sexual abberation.
3) Scorpios possess great intellectual curiosity & creative talent. They
think they are rebels & are arrogant, proud, conceited, and worth every
penny of it.

What do you bring to the table?

In cheaper plastic tubs it can melt the plastic as they stay on until water reaches the preset temp which can take quite a few hours and if they're in direct contact it could pose a problem. So do the SMART thing and just simply put it in a tall glass on it's side or lay a piece of plate glass in the bottom first which also works, cheap insurance is smart insurance! :wink: GL and be safe.
