Do i need to drain all water ?
if so after draining can i leave the tubes on?

If i dont need draining, i just can unscrew the part that has springs right?

if you arnt worried about any leaking from handeling the tubes/ water block, just leave the loop together and reseat it, i dont see why there would be a problem

Just check the hoses and make sure they are still on securely. As sometimes once you move the block they will slip off one side a little. Other then that you should be fine.

kinks aren't permanent so don't worry. btw if ur afraid of having one side of tubing slip off the barb when ur moving the block around a lot i'd suggest buying some worm hose clamps.

Or compression fittings for the win.

but really do it and don't worry just check the barbs to make sure the tubing is fully flush with it. Then you will be off and running.
