As long as it is still clean you don't need to change it.

Most of the Watercooling companies say 6months to a year, but then again you are suposed to change your oil every 3k miles. It's just sort of a guideline type thing.

if it's clean....leave it. Top it up a bit if it needs it...maybe add some anti algae or coolant...whatever you like.

I'd say clean it if it gets a bit dirty. Over time, add a bit fluid to it. I suppose you have a T line before your pump.
