Generally if you are thinking about just cooking fries and you doing $10-15K a week, you need to change about once a week, making sure you are filtering every night.  Any more than $15k a week you will need to replace the oil at least twice a week.  

Again watch for the symptoms mentioned in the Kinnek Knowledge team's response.  
The oil turns 'bad' when it is dark, smells bad, or is contributing a bitter, strange taste.   The oil may also starting burning, and give off smoke; another indicator is that you won't be able to see warming element at the bottom of the fry vat.

The frequency with which you should change out your fryer oil really depends on how often you're using the fryer per day, and what type of fryer oil you're using.

Most food service establishments replace the fryer oil at minimum once per day, but you may not need to adopt that kind of schedule.  One way of determining a schedule is to work the fryer and carefully observe how long it takes for the oil to turn 'bad'.  The oil turns 'bad' when it is dark, smells bad, or is contributing a bitter, strange taste.  If you notice that the oil is contributing negatively to your food, then it's perfectly reasonable (and you should!) to replace it immediately before using the fryer any further.

Good luck!
