Most of it depends on the load in your tank and the type of filter.

I usually do the back flush every 2 - 3 months and a tear-down every 6 months. I have never really noticed a slow in the water flow in the Eheims even after 6 months, so I just use the above schedule with good results.

I'm curious if the Eheim Pro II's flow indicator actually helps indicate whether or not it's time to clean your filter?
Good question.... I forget to even check mine since the hoses are turned toward the wall, and it's under a stand so it isn't easily visible. I'll have to remember to check it next time it's cleaning time.
