Default the fill and drain method

In these hydro systems using the fill and drain method...how many times should it fill and drain in a 24 hr period and how long should it be full and empty?

Long enough to wet the roots every 15 or 20 minutes during the light period. You don't need to water during the dark period even though some growers do.
