BRS Chloramine Monster and Bacterial Growth

I'm wondering if anyone who uses the Bulk Reef Supply Chloramine Monster (BRS Reverse Osmosis Chloramines Monster - Bulk Reef Supply) or a similar long lasting carbon filter has any issues with bacterial growth in the filter.

With my projected water use one of these filters would last me 5+ years and would be way cheaper to run than small 10" filters that need to be changed way more often. However I'm concerned about bacterial growth since the filter would be changed so rarely.

I was thinking of possibly yearly disinfecting the housing and air drying the carbon filter for a few days. Drying out completely should kill most bacteria I believe.
