Default nutrient cycle times

Hi Ron
I have a question about nutrient cycle times. When pumping the solution into the bottles (grorox), and
the solution get to the top of the cups, do I shut off the pump and let it drain, or let it run for x amout
of time?

Yes that is all it takes to water but some members can't buy a cycle timer because of the cost so they
use a low cost timer that has to run for 30 minutes. That is what the overflow pipe is for so the pump
can run for 30 minutes without the water flowing over the cups. But by no means does it have to
water that long.
