Very good recommendation. It was not necessary since we had this done after we got the car recently because the fluid was very dark. The Fluid was very clear at the time we did the brake job so, perhaps next time, however, yes this is something that needs to be done normally when doing a brake job as Hydraulic fluid certainly attracts water molecules.
