ADA aqua soil, how long does it last?

Hello plant junkies, before I convert to ADA, how long does the aqua soil last? I hate to start over every 2 or 3 years when I use Eco Complete.

Hey, it's me, CrazyCory. I have to start fresh because I cannot get in my account.

i heard the company say 1.5 years, but that's because they want you to spend more $$$

i heard people using it 4-5 years

I have used it for 1 year and I'm ready for a new scape

Asking as an eco-complete user whose tank is about 1.5 years old, why do you have to replace it? Does it break down?

I think they usually last for a year and stop having the right amount of nutrition. I would go with ADA and then start using root tabs in the long run.
