Question about Garden
I would start with a new cartridge first to ensure that it is not clogged up or defective..
If you still get the leak after that then check that you are within the operating tolerance for water pressure.
It does sound like a build up of pressure somewhere in the line or it may be that one of the seals is simply damaged or has a build up that is preventing it from doing its job.
Most of these devices are simple to tear down and re-build to check for problems and quite often it is a simple fix. The time between leaks may be of interest if you have a pump or similar operating on a similar time scale as that would maybe indicate the pump was over working and the pressure from the pump may be a little high.
Most of these circuits have test points to be able to fit a guage for basic tests and these guages are not all that expensive. Simple rule of thumb for a meter if to check the specs and find the highest pressure and buy a guage that is at least 1.2 as much as that. So for a max of 100 PSI a 150 PSI guage.
Apart from that filter double check any other filtration devices that may be in the water circuit and if they have back-flush capability perform that too to ensure larger debris is not getting through.
