Diy Flood And Drain Question

436
63
So for all you diyers out there I'm sure you've seen the idea of using those cement mixing tubs as a table and a tote as resevoir. well the issue is these aren't that big even the largest one can fit maybe 4 or 5 6 inch nets pots. and wouldn't really be able to grow large plants for lack of support. anyways, I wanna do 2 of these 21 gallon cement mixing tubs side by side in a 4x4 area but my issue is running 1 or 2 27 gallon res? is there anyway to run a set of fitting per each tray and only one resevoir? because I believe to flood the 2 trays 27 gallons would be more than enough? and 27 gallons per tray would be overkill?

thoughts?

so it goes like this
pump
tubing/pvc
splitter/y
tubing/pvc on each side of splitter
shut off valve on each side which is connected to the fill valve

on the drain side
drain valve
tubing on each side to a y back to the res

Make a drain in each tub with PVC run each one into a 90° PVC elbow two more straight pieces of PVC from each elbow into a PVC T- fitting. 2 tubs now has 1 drain.
