    If it's warm enough outside that you don't need a jacket, replace it every 2-3 days or however often it gets dirty. During the winter, you can leave it for up to 5 days if they aren't kicking dirt into it. A good rule is to look at the water; if you wouldn't take a sip of it, it needs to be cleaned.
