Default Bottom watering

I start my seedlings in 3" square pots, and have accumulated various trays to hold a dozen or more pots which fit under my grow lights.

I have always watered from the top because I cannot figure out how to bottom water without the threat of perhaps over-watering and then having to remove all the pots from the tray to drain it.

The problem with this is that it is a right royal pain to have to raise and lower the grow lights every day.

I recently bought some sturdy 10/20 trays from Lowes which should fit, and I'd love to learn how to bottom water.

Any suggestions gratefully received.
