I have the same filter. I have only had it for about 5 months. I change the white pads about ever 2 months (depends on how stocked your tank is) and the blue pad about ever 4-5 months.

I read that you should changed 50% of the EHFISUBSTRAT every 9 months? Im not sure why it has to be changed? every 2-3 months i take one bin of the EHFISUBSTRAT and dump it in a bucket of tank water and move it around to clean it, works great. Then after 2 more months i clean the other 50%.

The EHFIMECH never has to be changed, but i rinse that in tank water too every so often.
