Thanks. Luckily, the climate is not an issue for me since in Florida the weather is not really an issue and draining can be done any time of the year. I tend to agree with you that if the water looks and feels good there should not be a need to go through the hassle and expense related with draining until that consition changes. I was just wondering if not draining every four months and stretching it until the water calls for it has any hidden detriments that might hurt the equipment or surface?
So for the experts out there... should water be drained and should the mineral purifier be changed on a four month cycle even if the water looks and great and tests fine?
