In application, irrigation water or nutrient solution from the outlet hole diffuse, so that seedbed water level slowly rise and reach the appropriate height (known as high tide). Seedbed drowned about 2-3 cm depth, after crop roots are fully absorbed, about 10-15 minutes, due to capillary action, the nutrient solution rises to the surface of the medium in the  pot. At this time, open the water return port, drain the nutrient solution, and return to nutrient solution pool (called the ebb tide).
