Here is a link that might be useful: The Bucket system
I have a system similar to this; a Dutch pot system. Mine has the drainage tube extending to the center of the bucket. There is an upside down elbow at that center point, which helps drain the pot.
Is your drain tube at the center of the bucket in order to keep the nutrient level just below the net pot?
My system has media rather than a net pot. The downward flow of the nutrient along drain lines combined with the downward elbow creates a siphon effect which drains the lower 1 1/2-2" of the pot. I put the inner elbow about Â¼ " from the bottom of the pot Â if it is flush with the bottom it will seal & not drain. The purpose is to keep the roots from being constantly wet & to recycle the bottom nutrient. I had problems with some salts accumulation, & intermittently draining the area helped. It may not be necessary with this system, but I found it helpful with mine.
A graphic of how I placed my elbow is in the net pot FAQ:
