I see a pile of nifty computer renderings online. I really enjoy the way they can orthographically convey a message.
I myself have no computer skills. I can sure rock an hb number two !

I often try to expand my imagination, and solve problems. Here is a sketch of a redundant water circuit.

The gimmick in this one appears in the centre. This is essentially an aquarium sump idea. The top draw tubes maintain water levels at all times in every bucket ,save the final Reservoir.

It allows you to almost run out of water ( in the res) without compromising water levels( in the stations).

Is this one of the designs I've seen you running before and or currently?

Similarly.
Currently, no drop.

Res and stations bottom level.
Station height determined by draw tube.
Near the end of flower I yionk out that elbow on the right hand side and drop the water level by six inches.

Same principal as above. The middle res is a ' settling sump' This was an aquaponic drawing.
Station water level determined by overflow stem height. Pump can run dry without affecting water level.
Pump stays primed, with Zero flowback on power down.
I prefer a one bulk head system. I built one on the same premise.
Common horizontally stacked gravity drain to res on right.

Individual venturi's feeding buckets. The is an 'up' 90 in there. Stand pipes lived in each station and determined water level in each bucket.
You can see the high waterline is consistent.
I kicked out the elbows and dropped the water line, for the last couple weeks of flower.

Threads are tef-taped and slip joints are waxed with Dr. Zogs, and squeezed with a bar clamp. Anytime you want to add a station, just T-off the pressure supply and mallet the ABS apart, in order to t- into the drain.
These buckets could sit all at different heights, and still maintain consistent station water level height.
I was building these for under $35 per station.
I can run 12 stations on 180 watts - total - done.
I was running hard with a total of 4 gallons per station in the whole circuit
Hyper oxygen, zero maintenance,
No consumables, no heat, no air pumps , no bottlenecks. Depending on where I ran the plumbing; I could heat or cool the water. Water tended to run below tent temp, in my configuration.
My Iwaki pump cannot be heard over my mag ballasts. 24/7 bong rip is the loudest noise in the garden.
Pop off a lid and move to flower.
I really had fun developing and playing with this baby, it is simple , top quality, infinitely flexible in shape, readily reconfigurable in size, and I still have not seen one more inexpensive, or more bullet proof.

Ha, i draw everything i build , i thought i was just weird.
