I ask this because raising a big enough res is a logistical problem. Is using a 10L res per carrot raised about level to pot going to give enough head pressure?. 5L may be better as to fit in higher between pots (but 1foot height is probably max).
I can also have a res on floor pumping water to the furthest elevated res and then connect all the elevated res's in a chain with hosing so that the closest res will finally drop the over flow back into floor res. I would use a very small pump and have it running continually as to keep all the smaller res's mixing.
The water level in the res needs to be at least 3 ft above the top of the carrot to work right, per the instructions.Mine work at 30". Dunno how much lower would work. Otherwise you need a pressure pump & accumulator.
