My first cleaning resulted in an 1/8" paste / grit in a 5 gal bucket, filter was almost half full.

exactly I could probably go over a year but sometimes I just get curious
and since it's a bypass (most styles) and fluid would rather take the path of least resistance
any blockage could result in less filtration
so for 13 bucks I probably do mine 3 - 4 times a year

I also cut open the filter media and rinse it into a bucket to see whats trapped
