Whats the best thing to do with the airlock when you are going to dump trub or yeast through the bottom valve in a conical? How do you avoid drawing in the airlock liquid or air into the fermenter.

I'm not sure if something like this would help or not...

I leave the valve open during primary ferment, the trub drops into collection naturally. when i'm confident my Primary fermentation is complete i just shut the valve and remove the collection container.
