5 or less feet. IF you've gunked the block and radiator up, you have bigger issues than just cleaning. you should take out all colored liquid from loop and throw away never to see them again. Keep ONLY distilled water and a kill coil in your loop. if you want color, buy colored tubing. To clean the block, you can run hot water and 5% vinegar through it and the radiator. that should help. To fully clean the block, you'll have to take it apart

Depends. 2m is good enough. Maybe 3m.
And distilled/vinegar solution.

PT Nuke. You put in ~3 drops IIRC.

Buy more tubing than you think you'll need, it's not that expensive, and too much is WAY better than not enough.

ive heard horror stories about food coloring or any type of coloring in a water cooling loop. Colored tubing is the way to go.

I bought 10 feet my first time, and I still have about 3 feet left, even after redoing my loop three times o.O
