Betta Barrack help

I'm designing a barrack system using 2L soda bottles. I was going to cut the bottom off of the bottle and put a dripper in the cap and feed water to it with a dripper as well. After getting it all planned out I realized that if the pump failed the containers would still drain. I've decided to have the bottles right side up instead and do an overflow with airline instead. How would I keep that siphon even if the water level drops below the overflow?

Seems over complicated and problematic to keep running that way. I would put them in or over a sump and just cut overflow slots at the desired water level. This way you could put a heater and bio filter in the sump area. If the power or pump fails then the water will not go below the slots.
