I like to run the first five or six gallons of hot water from the chiller into an old aluminum pot with about a scoop of Oxyclean in it. When I've pumped the wort into the fermentation vessel, I put the chiller into the oxy pot and recirculate while I take care of the carboy and clean up. Then I pump the oxy water into the boil kettle to clean it, and pump that into the toilet with the hose through a window. About every other brew, I take some BKF to the kettle, and pump the rinse water into the toilet. Minimal lifting, which is good for my old bones. A bit of clean water goes through the hoses and pump head so it's ready for the next time.
