vacuum hose

We have a lot of dust here. Even though I keep the pool covered, some dust inevitably gets in and it settles to the bottom where the skimmer can't help. Is it is acceptable to leave the vacuum hose on the bottom while pump is running to keep the bottom a little clearer? I know I have to vacuum properly to get all the corners, but I'm talking in between times. What do you think?

Should be fine if you attach a vacuum head to weigh it down, but what you gain in the bottom clearing you will lose in skimming action.
