I would bench test it if you are worried about leaks. Hook it up and run it with the pump you intend to use. Let it run for a day or so. If it dosen't leak install it and put that puppy to work !

If possible, you might want to change those 90degree elbow hose barbs to 45 degree elbow hose barbs or straight hose barbs, because 90degree elbows kill your flowrate and add back-pressure.

well i hooked it up for like 4 hrs today at work and after about 3 hrs the hose's started leaking at the waterblock, is it because of the 90degree barbs?? do they just unscrew??
