How often do you break down your kegs to clean them?

Between batches I have been cleaning with PBW and flushing through a couple times with the PBW solution and then clean water. But how often should I pull the dip tubes and valves off to clean them more thoroughly?

Thanks.

i've used mine for over a year now, i just make sure i send sanitizer through the whole setup everytime i clean em...haven't noticed any problems yet. i think the big thing is just making sure you clean/sanitize em before anything has time to set up shop in there....weeks on end without cleaning and you'll prolly have to rip em down and rebuild with all the nasties hiding in there.

I break them down between batches. Luckily I have enough kegs to keep on tap and cleaning at the same time.
