Pump Frequency

Hi AllJust put together a simple flood and drain system with one grow bed above my 33 gallon tank. I am trying to figure out how frequent should I start and stop my submersible pump over a day (24hours). Currently, I am running my pump for 1/2 an hour with a 3 hours interval to reduce noise and electricity consumption.

Please tell us something else about yourself.
Retired with plenty of time on hand. Formerly worked in IT. Very keen in gardening but lack the room to have a serious garden. Aquaponics appeals to me because I can start small and expands. Also like the idea of learning self sustainability for peace of mind. Started learning about Aquaponic about 2 months ago. Setup a very simple flood and drain system (see picture) and looking to learn as much as possible before building a proper system.
