"As a general rule, once a month, should be ok!
This also depends, weather the pool is in or outside, do you have a cover,are there any trees, close by,"

"That depends on the size of the cartridge, size of pool and jhow much use its getting. Over cleaning won't hurt. If you notice a drop in flow clean it.
Small abound ground filters can need cleaning every day if pool is in constant family use over the summer. But as a minimum once a week
Bigger installed pool system filters last longer and should have a cleaning schedule avalible."
