This depends on how much debris and material normally collects on your pool surface. The Solar-Breeze is equipped with a clear window on the top of the unit that allows you to see when the collection tray is full and needs to be emptied.

The debris collection area of the Solar-Breeze has approximately twice the capacity of a standard skimmer basket. As a result, if you normally clean out your skimmer basket once a week, then you would need to empty the Solar-Breeze once every two weeks.
