Default 5 HW tanks

I have to pipe in 5 domestic HW storage tanks with 1 large boiler. Can anyone help me with a piping diagram? I know how to balance even number of tanks but odd number is causing me a problem.
Any recommendations?
I’ve been a commercial plumber with almost 40 years service experience and never had to design a system like this

Thanks for the help everyone

You post a very weak intro at the same time as asking a complicated question. This question has been asked many times....

I have PM'ed him. He has been instructed to go start an intro thread. I included the link previously.

Next post without an intro it's ban time.
