I don't have that much experience . But heres my opinion, take it with a grain of salt. I can see shaking the filter in tank water and reusing it once, especially with 3 filters. At some point that filter should be changed. Use judgment as to when to replace it. I think the important thing is dont change them all at the same time for the bacterias sake.
