It's a copper tube. I drilled the hole in my keggle a little over 3 inches from the bottom, and the pick up tube is 8" x 3", so it's about 1/2" off the bottom of the keg, and almost exactly in the middle of the keg. It leaves very little behind when I'm done draining.
I could have continued to drain more in this picture, but it was all hop sludge.
