    I think it varies depending on how long you leave your machine on each day, something to do with hardening of the rubber?

    Gday CK,
    in addtion to Bloops reply, it also depends on how you look after it (I assume youre referring to the group gasket). If you dont clean it after every use ie with the blind portafilter wiggle or using a damp cloth or brush, youll be grinding ground up coffee into the gasket every time you turn the portafilter handle. Imagine tiny rocks being forced into the gasket material :(.
    Apart from that, I dont think there is a standardised change gasket every x interval as there are too many factors impacting on its life span.
    If your routine is down pat, and nothing else changes, and suddenly your portafilter is leaking around the gasket area, its most likely time to change it.
    Hope that helps.
