Don't quote me, but I think it's 10' of feeder tube for every 1' of res elevation before problems.

Ive never had it be a problem with the 160 gph/ 9w pump i use. I actually hoped for a 1 or 2 degree rise in resevoir temps, cause it always feels chilly to me. I run drip to waste, so no recirc as well.

Maybe since you want to run a small amount of water in your cans, it may heat faster. I usually keep about 20-25 gallons in mine at a time.

In short, No, dont worry about it heating things up.

Kool. Guess all there is to do is run it and see what happens. Hopefully worse case scenario is I run air stone constantly and play with the pump and timer. I could add more liquid to res but wanna make sure a don't get any run aways before doing so.

Really appreciate all of you guy's help. I'll be sure to post back when more questions arise.

UPDATE

Everything turned out great! pH stabilized at 6.8 in reservoir. Been running an air stone and circulation pump 24/7.

In reservoir I've been running per gallon:
15 ml PBP Bloom
5 ml CalMag
1 ml Drip Clean
1/2 ml each part of Flying Skull Z7

Also, once a week I hand water to runoff with
15 ml PBP Bloom
15 ml Foxfarm Bigbloom
5 ml CalMag
5 ml Sweet
2.5 ml Hydroplex

And got some Jamaican guano and EWC underneath the drip.

I did have trouble with one plant that ran away every five days. This happened twice. And each time I replaced it with another Blumat I had already soaking. The other four plants haven't had any problems at all. Just to throw it out there, after dialing back to a clinging drop, I dialed them 1.5 arrows back and only had to adjust one open more. And I only barely moved the dial more open, maybe 3 of the grip lines on the dial, and it corrected it no problem.

Over all, THESE BLUMATS ARE DA BOMB.COM!!!!!!! Lmao!

And thanks again guys for all of your advice! Couldn't be so successful without you.

I’m not. I didn’t ever setup an elevated res to keep the pressure regulated so I kept having run aways
