No sir. This system uses an inexpensive pump to deliver a pre mixed nutrient solution to buckets and then drains back to the tank. I have my tank sized to refill once a week. This is a better pic of a 4 bucket setup without an obstructed view. Perlite is the grow medium with a 5 gallon paint strainer bag to keep things from getting into the drain lines. A reserve of nutrient stays in the bottom of the bucket between timed pump cycles.Looks like you still need add water everyday?
