Sure it can be done as it's done in most fish stores. As a matter of fact, you might go to one or more of your LFS's, tell them your setting up a multi-tank fish room and ask them to show/explain their system.
Note: I'm thinking that most often their tanks have drilled overflows which will likely not be possible for your aquariums so you may need a different type of overflow (just thinking)
Regardless of exact details, there is some pretty serious plumbing involved, but if you are up to the task, it will likely be more cost effective than treating each tank individually. Also, while on the subject, consider well insulating the room and heating the room to 76F or so rather than have heaters for each tank. OR, if you use a reservoir/sump system, slightly higher than normal room temp, with heaters in the system to make up the difference.
