Ok so this is my first time growing in a bubble hydro system. I have a HUGE purp plant that was doing spectacular and had huge sticky buds already into the 3rd week of flowering about 2 days ago i looked in the bucket to check on the ph and i noticed the water looked stagnant. Then later on in the day the leaves started drooping. i was thinking it was either over watering, nute burn, or some kind of disease.
I quickly emptied the stagnant water and found that my aerator was busted and not sending bubbles to all the roots so i went out and bought a new one hooked it up, put some fresh water in there and left it over night.
In the morning i noticed there was some light brown slime on the roots which i carefully cleaned off in a few different buckets of water. once it was cleaned off and put in fresh water the plant still didnt look any better so i started doing some research and in looked like the the same symptoms as a plant that was drowning/over watered so i emptied out the water again and let it sit damp for the day.
The first couple of hours it looked like a lot of the smaller leaves were starting to perk up. I was getting hopeful that this would fix the problem but as more time went by the plant started looking worse again and all the leaves were once again drooping. i put 2 more gallons of water with light nutrients (afraid it might still be a nutrient overdose) so only part of the roots were submerged in the water and the aerator directly underneath the root bunch.
When i got up this morning the leaves didn't just look droopy they are looking wilted and sad. Thinking it may be some disease i added some H2O2 but after that i've exhausted all the solutions i can read about if this doesn't work i fear for the worst.
If the leaves are starting to wilt but the stems still feel strong does that mean my baby's finished? what can i do?
Down here are some before and after photo's two of the whole plant and two of the buds

First if you are afraid of a nute burn stop them all together, don't do a light dose. The plant will survive without fertilizer.
It's hard to say from the pictures what it could be. But as you mentioned slime around the roots, I'd check for root-rot or another root disease that may be causing the plant to shut down.
First off, when it comes to flushing your medium, a light nutrient solution will do you far more good than plain water. Flushing with a light nutrient solution actually pulls more salt build up off of the soil than plain water would. But it would be best to flush with something like Clearex.
If your suspecting rootrot then you need to use something like Physan 20.
