How to fill railing footing to drain water?

I want to scrape and paint my railing, but figured I better fix the drainage issue first.

Ideas to fill the footing so it drains?

Once its dry, put in some self levelling sealant, such as Loctite PL S20.

When dry, scrape and paint it. After the paint is dry, apply painters tape in a square and use a polyurethane caulk, fill the hole and create a little mountain (taper) up the post. Now get some plastic post base covers and install them to make it look pretty
