I'm new to this and wondering why I need to install a bell siphon vs installing a drain on the side of my grow box. It's my understanding that point of the bell siphon is to continually drain and flood the system, but why is that an advantage over keeping the water the same height?

Siphoned Flood & Drain offers better oxygenation of the water, root zone, and bacteria colony.

There are pros and cons for both.
Many people have gotten by fine using either one. Wouldn't stress about it. Fun thing to play with if you have time. Results vary, that's what makes this hobby interesting.
