I’ve had my pouch for about 3+ years. I don’t drink nearly enough water so my consistency is very think. It’s like toothpaste without irrigating. When I stay hydrated or drink certain juices, it is more like pancake batter consistency. I empty my pouch every 5-7 hours. The timing is typically driven by when/what I eat. I empty before every meal so I’ll have room for the next one. I empty when I wake up and before I go to bed - including naps.
