I would like to know what kind of schedule to put my spray pump on. The holes are 1/16 drilled and the pots get a good soaking. I don't want to drown the plants. The water is not a mist its more of streams spraying the pots. So far 15m on and 30m off has been working.

Hi @Newbie_Grower! Congratulations for your new setup! I would recommend to stick with your current schedule since it seems to be working great, you may want to adjust to "10min on / 10min off" once you'll be entering flowering mode, plants will need more nutrients intakes than they do now. Remember your pump will generate heat if working too often / working for too long, so avoid using it more than 10min. Hope this helps, I'll be around, keep us up-to-date and good luck with the hydro setup!

It varies from setup to setup as hardly anyone has the same amount of airflow and water flow. It’s best to experiment and see which works best for your setup. The key is to make sure the roots don’t dry out and to not overly soak them as to not let them breath. I’ve heard of people doing 15mins on 15 mins off. 30mins on 15mins off and similar variations in between. If you aren’t seeing any issues as of right now don’t mess with it. Just keep a close eye out and make sure the roots are staying moist. Hope this was helpful. Good luck on your grow!
