Daft Question time

I am not exactly new to detailing I have always kept my cars clean and polished or so I thought for the last 40+ years

Polished by hand years ago but in the last 10 years moved on to machine polishing etc

I have watched loads of videos on the tube about machine polishing
and am not too bad at it

Many say to put 4/5 pea size blobs of compound etc onto a pad and do a panel on speed whatever

I am ok with that But when you move on to the next panel and then the next etc what do you do ??

Add more compound ?
Change to new pad every panel ?
Clean / wash pad and carry on ?

At the moment I add a small amount of compound for each panel I do
and add a quick spray of water or detailing spray every now and then when I see the pad drying out
Probably not the best method I know

Any advise greatly appreciated

Sorry if it sounds like a daft question
