Hi. Thanks for asking your question! I will try and help you out.
If there is water in the bottom of the filter, it will be a dark color. You should not have to drain much. Maybe a pint or so. If you do not see a dark color come out. You may not have any water in the filter.
Please reply back if you need more help or have more questions. I am happy to assist.
