Yes and yes...

I did harvest a few tomatoes but had to clean the pipes and trim a few roots  to be able to get the water to flow through 4" pipes.

It depends how long you grow them. I've had 10' plants clog 6" PVC and the root mass was as hard as a rock.

If had to do it over again I wouldn't. It was too much trouble trying to get water to flow through. I did use a 10" pvc pipe and that seemed to work well.
