Re: [IP] Frequency of Site Changes



They recommend you change your site every 3 days (which I do religiously)
due to possibility of infections at the site. I only fill my resevoir for 3
days worth to make myself change it every 3 days.  I don't wanna push it and
find out later that it's infected.
