Im building a wort chiller and I wanted to know if when you place it in the boil to sanitize it do you remove the plastic pipes for running colder water through? Or does it not matter?

If you meant the lines that bring the water to/from the chiller, no, they stay attached.

just built your wort chiller so they are far enough away from the edge of the pot. If they were to touch the pot for a prolonged time I could see them melting depending on the material.

If you did it right, the tubing never touches the pot.
