I am thinking of replacing my SS braid with a copper manifold. One foreseeable problem though: unlike some coolers, where the spigot seems to reside in trough below the bottom of the cooler, the spigot in my cooler is about 1 inch above the base of the cooler.
If I rest the manifold on the bottom then it seems whatever liquid rests below the spigot won't be collected. On the other hand, if I build a riser for the manifold, whatever liquid pools below it won't be collected.
Maybe I am overthinking this and it isn't a problem, but has anyone dealt with this?
