simple way to convert a ebb table to a DTW table

I've always done dtw with as little run off/waste as possible. The idea behind drain to waste is basic.
You want to water just a little at a time. To where after your done and the roots are wet, there's maybe a 1-2TBS of run off. Then you let it dry and feed again.
This method is best when you use clay pebbles. The more you can dry out and feed is the key here. When doing a proper drain to waste system, there is less waste than any other system.
Just my 2 cents.

I gave a real generic statement above and I don't want to hijack anyone's thread. If anyone wants me to go into better detail, drop me a PM.

Not much information on how to build ebb n flow systems.. this is the closest I've came to a good source.

I wanted to setup an automated feeding/watering system for 36 clones in a 4x4. Can anyone give me any advice?
