I do the same thing. Except: leaving it in the drain postion and after I have removed the vac tube, I put my thumb over the end of the hose while the water is running, let a good vacuum build, then release. This forces the water through. I do this as I walk to the faucet lifting the hose. Then I remove it, coil it up and stuff it into my bucket. (I waste water as it is doing this, I don't want to waste electricity, too, by using a pump. If it gets bad, I guess I'll figure something out then. This is a new hose that is tinted and I haven't had a problem so far, obviously. My last one years ago was clear and never had a problem. (I don't know if the color would contribute as less light gets in)

Fish are people, too!
My tank is clean but my house is dirty.
