Is there any reason i wouldnt want to do a drip system... or why i might want to do a different set up?

What an odd way to phrase this question...

Lets see, pros and cons:
+low maintenance
+improved growth rate (3/5)
+moderate to setup
-Prone to failure through clogging
-more expensive/complex than DWC
-slower growth than aeroponics

As far as hydro goes, each system will produce roughly the same amount when used correctly. It is a mixture of preference and practicality that ultimately decides which style to use.

Hmm... cause im kinda debating DWC vs Drip.  Both systems would be equally easy to set up (i work where drip systems are readily available)...

It just sucks the space i have to use.  Ima have to think this over some more... i just cant decide but this hand watering is BS...

DWC is my preference hands down.  I've used it for quite a few years and I feel it is relatively low maintenance for a hydro system.  If you do it I recommend a LARGE reservoir and a circulating system, as opposed individual bucket systems that I've seen people do.  Less nutrient swings and ph swings with a big back up of water and nutes for them all to draw off of.
