Here's mine. Spin the tubing so they are on top, so if no sprayers were mounted, they would spray up.

Use PVC glue to glue all the connections to the "T" piece. DO NOT GLUE THE VALVE ON YET.

Hey Bro I have recently removed my tubing rings in my dwc that sprayed my recirculating nute water down into my bucket in small jet streams.
This was supplied to 8 buckets from a control bucket (a 45 gal) tank via a 650 gph pond pump.
I decided to use a l section of 1'2" cpvc and one red and blue jet nozzle 3" under net pot ,just above water level.
I now have my pump cycling on every other hour for 30 mins,it gives my root vine a nice shot of nutes,and they are showing signs of pleasure.
Most of them are down in the water now where the air stones are supplying lotsa oxy saturated juice.
So these are aero bubblers and I have noticed in the past 4 days my plants making a quick recovery from a prob induced by organics (thrive alive) causing slimy roots,and are now coming along much quicker than without the blasting action of the jet nozzle directly under the net pots.
I would recommned in your build type to drill a series of like 1/16" holes along the bottom of your pvc to aid in pressure relief and really keep that water aerated,it adds a really nice action.
I am convinced the biggest prob people are having with dwc alone is the water level too high and the roots are drowning.
Thus yellowing,wilting leaves and stunted growth...
I know it happened to me...with this aero addition and dropping the water level significantly 4" below pots you are gonna see these plants explode...

I have a small pump, so I'm not sure pressure relief will be necessary, but we will see.
Make the hole needed to put a PVC tubing through with a drill bit a little bit smaller than the PVC tubing. Put it through. Put the valve on, and make sure it's turned off! Put your microsprayers on. In my case, the PVC glue didn't keep the pipes glued together, but it created an effectie water seal. Go figure, it works. So you may as well be able to move your tubing around too. If you don't have your sprayers yet, face the tubing down into the water. Turn that baby on!

Picture of the valve. Just turn it on and drain the water when needed.

Put in your microsprayers. Oh yeah. Congratulations, you have yourself an aero-bubbler!
