Diesel Site Coolant Filter - Filter Change

I just did a flush, loaded up with cherry coolaid (ELC). Anyway, when should I change that first filter out?

I put about 100 miles on her with a decent load since the flush, still looking like new! I had to go back and tighten the clamps after a few heat cycles but all is good!

Thanks, Colin

I believe it's 500 miles for the first one, then 1000 miles on the second and then yearly after that.
But I'm going to change them at 500 for the first, 500 for the second, 1000 for the third and then yearly

Just ordered the same system. Here is what the site says:

Use one filter every three months for the first nine months after installation. The lack of flow into the expansion tank is an indication that your filter is plugged. Change the filter if it should plug before the 3-month interval. After the 4th filter is installed your filter should be changed once per year.

Hope that is helpful.
