Hydroponic Strawberries - Any Experience

I’ve always thought there is so much empty space in a greenhouse and came across these Bato Strawberry buckets that sit on pipes hung from chains or cables. Great idea and I have been thinking about trying to find a way to grow overhead down the center of the greenhouse. These buckets could be the answer.

While I understand hydroponics, I have no experience and wonder if it worth all the trouble to maintain PH and PPM? I’m not concerned about the costs, as its a hobby as I could be buying scratch tickets or cans of Shlitz instead. For those that have experimented or are currently growing hydroponically, have you found the yields, time, effort and costs worth it?
