I looking for opinions on how often to flood my grow beds. I have a 7' long by 2' wide by 1' deep gravel grow bed and I am set up right now to fill in 18 1/2 min. and drain in 5 min. That's about 3 times an hour. To much??? To little??? What kind of cycle times are others using?

how often does the water of your ft "turn over"?

I guess I don't understand what you're asking. I have a 100 gallon FT and the water to my grow bed is flowing at 1 gallon a min. That equates to about 18 1/2 gallons per cycle. So if you're asking how long does it take to go through 100 gallons then about 1hr. and 40min. to cycle the full 100 gallons.
