well to start with you dont need to rewash the carbon as its sitting in water all the time just when yo first put it in... once a month is fin but if you feel a need to increase your water quality or to water polish if you will i have read a great deal about using chemi-pure and it seems to work very well for about 6 months at a time..... i have not tried it my self mind you but i read a ton about random things like that LOL
