Question Tips for a noob to Hydroton?

What do you wish you knew before using Hydroton?

The perlite in my hempy buckets has seen better days, so I decided to try swapping them over to clay pebbles.
The plan is to have a fabric pot as a liner inside the 3.5gal bucket with hydroton filled from bottom to the top.
Here's what I'll be using...
I was wondering if you guys could give me some tips on using the stuff? I've never been around it or have an experience other than to know to wash it thoroughly.

Any advice would be appreciated.

You could also end up with water perchment having the clay balls at the bottom of pot or bag , there’s a way to avoid this by sitting your plants up on one side of the pot so water drains through the balls and dose not perch itself just below your other growing medium . Regards OD .
