    Here's mine. I have a 2 x 8 tray, a 2 x 3 - and a 4 x 8. I have a 1/2" feed line with 8" drip rings on each plant (in 10 gal smart pots) with a valve at each plant and one at the end of the line. There is a check valve at the output of each rez (water and nutes) so that they can both share the same line but won't backfill the opposite rez. For anti-syphon I just punched in a small 1/8" line just before the check valves and left it open to air. When the pump turns on, it spits water back into the rez - but before a syphon can start, it'll pull air into that line breaking the syphon.

    I have a nutrient timer set to feed 3x a day for 1 minute and a water timer set for 2 minutes, also 3x a day. I have it timed so that 1/2 hour after the water, it pushes the nutrients. This way, the roots won't be bathed in straight water for too long. DTW.jpg

    Not as advanced as some of you guys in this thread. Simple DTW setup with hydro halos, ball valves let me adjust the flow,
