Water in tubes

I recently purchased a used Zodiac MK II Type 2234. It's in pretty good shape other than a couple handles have pulled off and it came with all the original equipment. The only real set back is when i got home and in my heated shop i found out there was water in the tubes, previously ice because it was stored outside. Is there anything I can do to drain it without poking a hole in it then patching?

I wonder if it would be possible to remove the valve and insert a small pipe and suck it out with a pump?
