depends on the medium.  for my netpots that are suspended over the table with root masses laying inside, i flood for 30min every 2 hours.  things like coco and rockwool will want less flood cycles than something like hydroton or my netpot setup.

:confused: 1 min isnt enough to fill a table significantly, and 5 min isnt enough for a table to drain fully.  where are you getting those numbers?  you using a 1000gph pump with a 2x2 table? lol

396gph, and all of that would be depending on how many plant sites and how your big your reservoir is..., how deep your  planting containers, more of a 4 x4, pot for pennies style..... hehe k.i.s.s keeping it simple my friend

396gph..... assuming it didnt lose any flow due to lift height to the table (even though it would)  means 1 minute on pumps 6.6 gallons. 


6.6 gallons is .88 cubic feet which spread over a 4x4 foot area would be about .66 inches deep.  and that 6.6 gallons should drain in less than 5 minutes.  how does filling your table to less than 1 inch of water every 5 minutes work? 

not to mention using 1min on 5min off would either require a $90 recycling timer, or some crafty DIY electronics.
