In a DWC, the air pump runs 24/7. The net pots are just barely submerged in the water and only until you have good root growth out the bottoms of the net pots and then the water level is dropped. I change the water every 7-10 days, depending on how much the girls are drinking up.

I started with 1 room, i had a 4, 5 gallon RDWC set up i put togther. i had the pump and Air stones run 24 X 7...

I have since added a Veg. room and am running 5, 5 gallon buckets in there currently.. And I have a 4 inch round airstone in each bucket, and a Pair of Huge air pumps...

After adding the veg. rooom and the single buckets. I can tell you that i personally like the RDWC i built. Only 1 res. to check, Not 5... (what a pain in the Tush) lol..

I run a perpetual harvest and have different strains in different stages of growth in my flowering room at all times. I raise or lower the buckets to keep an even canopy. I also often mix nute solutions of different strengths for different strains. Individual buckets (or maybe 2 of the same strain in a 10 gal tote) is really the only way for me to go with the way I grow. Each set up is individual and needs to suit the grower's style.

If I put 2 plants in a tote (I personally never put 4 in one tote), they are the same strain from the same mother and are smaller growing strains. I use other buckets and milk crates to raise buckets and totes that need to be raised to maintain an even canopy.
