Add hours? Uh no. Put the out put at the back and siphon from the front.
It may take a bit longer but the tank is never less than a bucket from
being full; the problem with leaving 20% of the water in there
only is that all the plants flop over and sometimes get bent
permanentnly, albeit slightly.

With two pytings of course it's all just automatic. Hook them
up, let them go and you can chnage 100% of water per hour.
