    Two 8 gallon buckets with a 27 gallon tub and another 8 gallon bucket.

    My plan was to connect the two plant buckets together and then to either the 8 gallon bucket or the 27 gal tub.

    The 8 gallon bucket as the Res and then the 27 gal for the “top off bucket”.

    Or

    I could use the 27 gal bucket as the Res

    Just let me know what you guys think. Appreciate all feedback.

  2. My advice is to simplify.
    Simpler than RDWC, and at least as effective, is a top-feed, large reservoir system, gravity-fed from an external storage reservoir.
    In particular, the GeneralHydroponics air-lift top feed system keeps reservoirs well mixed and well aerated.
    There are DIY versions of it on the internet.

    GH also sells a storage reservoir system that I use, and that can be DIYed:

    A multiple-plant, single, large reservoir is roughly equivalent to a recirculating system, because it's always well mixed.
