I am nearly done with MLT and i wanted to do a test run with just water to see how much water is left. My MLT is a 50 qt igloo legend. i had 1 1/4 qt of water left at the end of the drain.would this be ok and how much do you have left?how will this much water left effect my eff% when i do my 1st AG run?
i would post pic's but i cant seem to resize them small enough.
Thanks Les

It will effect your efficiency a bit, can you tilt your cooler on its side to aid in draining? If not then I wouldn't worry too much about it, I usually have about a quart left as well.

if the MLT lay's flat, it will leave bout 2-1/4 qt's and if i tilt it 1" it will leave the 1-1/4 qt's. i was just wondering how much other's have left and if its less i would like to see there MLT. i'll try and get my pic's down to the right size so i can post.

Thanks Les
