I change mine yearly and keep the spares. I've yet to see one so bad that I trashed it. I do it more as a PM move than having the impeller go south at the worst possible time.

Some folks pull the plate off a couple times a year for a look-see but I don't think you can get a good look at the impeller condition that way, and by the time you get it out you might as well replace it.

I've yet to replace the cam though.
