Building a “Fallponic” RDWC system

So, I’ve watched the videos on YouTube from Gary at PA Hydroponics, on how he builds his systems.
I am basically going to replicate it, except I’m going to be using 27 gal black totes with black lids for grow sites and for the reservoir.
In theory I want 5 plants in my 4x8 tent.
But in my little bit of experience, I can fill it with 3 large plants. So I may just stick with 3 plants.
It will be fed with an 1110gph active aqua pump, through 3/4” pvc, dumping into the grow containers via waterfalls.
A 50w air pump will supply air to a 2x4” airstone in each container as well. Including the res.
I have 3” bulkheads and 3” pvc for the returns.
I have a 1/2hp chiller, which will be circulating the water from the reservoir with an 800gph pump.
I’ll be using Peters professional 5-11-26 nutrients, following the jacks 321 schedule from the time they have a couple nodes, until harvest.
With the addition of mkp at the start of flower.
And potassium silicate after training.
I plan on using hydroguard even though I’ll be using the chiller.
I’ll post pictures of the build once I get around to actually putting it all together. Hopefully some of you guys will have some tips for me. And maybe someone else might actually learn something Lol
