so back to the original question, for the sake of saving money, is there a false bottom that will fit my rubbermaid 10 gallon and also work equally well on my domed sanke in the near future? the only thing i can think of is a domed false bottom for a flat cooler will have much more dead space in a oppositely domed sanke.
Yes, I have the 12" false bottom for my Igloo cooler, and it fits my sanke MLT as well. It's a little small, but it covers the convex bottom of the sanke.

I have it turned into a bottom draining MLT now, so there is no diptube, but it could have a diptube.

It's the 12" false bottom (bought from Northern Brewer, I think, but it could have been morebeer.com) for the round Igloo 10 gallon cooler.

I have the 10" FB as well, for the 5 gallon cooler that I never used. It's WAY too small, though!

This is the FB on the bottom-draining keg MLT that is build "upside down" so to speak. The keg was turned over, and the bottom cut off instead of the top, and the original top left in place. I have a tri-clover fitting on the old sanke connection for draining.
