I have my "rainforest" and "bog garden" automatic watering systems in full trial mode.
NOTE: these systems are still in the trial period.
So I have both water pumps (132 GPH for the bog, 264 GPH for the rainforest)hooked up to an electronic timer that is plugged into one of my ballasts. The pumps only run for 5 minutes once a day, and the soil in all the pots stays quite moist. I have a small air pump and one air stone in each resevoir (5 gallon for the bog, 27 gallon for the rainforest), as of right now the air stones run while my lights are on (16hrs a day, overkill i know).
I shot this video today of the whole system in action, remember this is still in the prototype phase. As you can see in the video there's still plants I haven't repotted into smaller square posts that still need to be hand watered.
