The frequency with which you should empty your commode chair will depend on a few factors, such as the size of the bucket and how often the chair is being used. In general, Fred Mill recommends emptying your commode chair after each use or at least once a day if it is being used regularly.

If the commode chair is being used by someone who has a medical condition that causes frequent or heavy urination or bowel movements, it may need to be emptied more frequently to prevent overflow or spills.

It's also important to dispose of waste properly and sanitise the commode chair after each use to prevent the spread of germs and infection. To do this, use gloves and other protective equipment, remove the bucket and empty it into a toilet, and then clean the bucket and chair thoroughly with soap and water or a disinfectant solution.

It's a good idea to follow Fred Mill’s instructions for cleaning and maintenance to ensure that your commode chair is kept in good condition and is safe for use.
