You could collect your losses and place them in a bucket to get an idea of the volume of lost liquid. This should include what is in your pump and hoses, and what is in the bottom of your kettle that you are unable to siphon or drain out.
Once you have the figure for your lost volume of wort, you can enter this figure into your Kettle Profile. There is a field called Dead Space. You could enter the total volume there and it should calculate how much is lost to dead space and adjust your beginning volumes needed to get to your target ending volume.
I hope that this helps.
