My dear, do you haul that great big beautiful tree in and out every time you want to water it? You're not only a good plant person, but a strong one. Professionals use the double-potting method, in which the plant in its grow pot is placed inside a waterproof container. I'll give you a link to a video talking more about it at the end of this post. You water enough to leave a runoff in the liner, the depth of the runoff depending on size of the plant and the amount of light. The objective is to give your plant sufficient water until the next visit ( 1 to 3 weeks), at which time the water in the liner should be gone and the soil moisture level be low enough for the plant to be watered again.
The other professional method is to use self-watering containers. There are several on the market. There are good things and bad things about them, maybe another time we can discuss more.
Here's the video about potting methods.

@Ficus Wrangler, thanks for this, I will check it out. This plant is double potted, it is in a plastic pot that fits in the ceramic pot, but I think the ceramic pot drains also, so I may need to think about that, maybe next time I can line the ceramic pot with plastic and set the plastic pot inside. The ceramic pot is a cherished gift that I love in this room. Any tips on ficus pruning and shaping?
