It has slits cut in the underside, The wort enters through the slits.

I use a false bottom...But i'd imagine the reason the slits are placed on the bottom is to deter the grains from clogging the slits.

And the heigh of the tubing would all be liquid lost so better suction effect from the bottom and better filtering as well

John Palmer says place the slots/holes either up or down. I do them down, less dead space.
