The "pink" would be in there for the same amount of time leaching into the plastic (yes it does) Flushing and re-filling would do NOTHING to slow that down, neither does sanitizing.
I have read that flushing with vinegar when de-winterizing reduces the flavor/odor left behind by the pink....haven't confirmed that yet, it would surprise me,as I doubt it would get it out of the plastic. Once in the plastic it's in there.
If you use pink, get used to it. I use bottled water for drinking/cooking.
