The filter media or the filter completely?
I have never had to replace a filter unless I just didn't like how it worked or it broke...Most of the time if its broke all it will need is the impeller cleaned out..A filter should last for years and years...
The filter media holds in alot of your beneficial bacteria. I prefer to use sponge instead of carbon so I just rinse it a few times a month in the water I siphon out during water changes.
