Flushing hydroponic tomatoes?

I have 2 Black Zebra Tomato plants, 1 black Cherry Tomato plant, and 2 Sungold Cherry Tomato plants. They are all in DWC buckets. My question is: How do you go about flushing them? I understand how it works with a plant that you harvest one time and then chop it down, but how does it work when you are dealing with a plant that continually produces fruit?

I am using Botanicare nutes. Do I just flush using something like sweet or clearex for 2-3 days and then harvest and then return to regularly scheduled nute-ing until the next round is ready?

Thanks
Tommy

Any thoughts on this or should I take this over to the hydro forum?

Yup, hydro forum would be better. Those of us who just grow tomatoes in the ground don't even understand the language you talk... :)

Hahaha. I Understand. When I first started reading about hydro I was so overwhelmed. Once I starte a system, I realized it was so incredibly simple though.
