18*75. Actually, as above, 18*50. Two lights per box.

Thinking harder, They are PAR-20 sockets, and no more than 50w bulbs. But when I want the room bright, its not quite bright enough, but I'm OK with that, but am unwilling to go with lower output bulbs. And no guarantee that even if I did, someone else wouldn't replace them up to the brightest possible. The circuit doesn't need additional capacity. I need two dimmers is all. The alternative plan would be to drive two dimmers off the 1 incoming circuit, and run another 2-wire cable in the attic.

I don't want the heated water blowing through a relief valve and down the drain, I want it kept in an expansion tank.
