OK, the third pump, a new one, will go into the DIY 5 gallon bucket.
I checked the Irrigation Hub and it works fine. I used a 7 inch long 3/4 inch plastic tube to attach the pump to the Hub. That is a customized fit for my 5 gallon bucket. After I tested it and put it in the bucket, I saw 7 inches was too long, so I cut it back to 4 inches.
The KIT comes with what you need to attach the pump to the hub.
If you buy the kit, the hub and pump come matched up and already fit together.
If you DIY, you will need to rig up something between the pump and hub, and I think using the clear plastic tubes work best. Certainly cheap and easy enough.
ALL water pumps come with several attachements just for this purpose.
I had used a 7 inch piece of clear plastic in those pics to connect the pump to the hub, but when I tried it in the bucket, it was too tall, so I went back and cut it down to 4 inches.

I've been lurking in the shadows for around 2 months now and have read practically all of your DWC and CFL threads. I'm close to 2 weeks into 12/12 right now, but unfortunately no flowers/preflowers, but my babies have been quite abused moving interstate, transplanting etc! Having seen some of your past work (and knowing my luck) I guess we'll be harvesting at around the same time so I'm subscribing for sure!
Btw thanks for all the effort you put in helping out the DWC/CFL community (especially the noobs)!

What is with the Water Pumps and Irrigation Hubs?
One word, BUBBLEPONICS!
I could copy and paste a bunch of technical info here but I'm trying to keep it simple. Earlier, I explained the different Hydroponic systems, and this is about Bubbleponics, the very most efficient fastest growing hydroponic system available. The word BUBBPLEPONICS is actually registered and owned by a friend of mine that owns Stealth Hydroponics.
Simply, it is a system of pumping oxygen enriched and nutrient enriched water to each root base, even when there is no root base and the seed is first germinating and starting its first single root. It is not a stream or strong flow of water, that would drown the sprout. It is just a trickle of a lot of air and a little water, rich in nutrients. As the water is trickled onto the base of the sprout, the roots are fed and then they follow the trickle of water as it falls into the bottom of the tank and re-circulated. The airstones provide a lot of oxygen to the water and the water pump then pumps that oxygen and water to each sprout.
The water pump also moves and stirs the water, and we all know stirring water is cooler and more oxyegenated as it is moved.
I could go on and on, explaining, but the real explanation is in witnessing the rapid growth, especially the first 3 or 4 weeks. I actually have to raise my lights an inch higher every day due to the rapid growth, the first 4 weeks.
To believe it, you will have to see it.
I started 3 seeds in soil the same day, to make a comparison, as you see in the pics.
Those first 3 weeks is when the feeding tubes really make a difference.
I started seeds in the soil and in the Bubbleponics system at the same time in these pics. See any difference?
BTW, never bring soil near the Hydro system. I should have never done that. There is a danger of bugs and bug eggs in the soil getting to the baby plants.

Hmmmmm. The ones in the tub look much bigger & very healthy, except that
runt. Remember if it caught up to the others? I love hydro!
