If you’re planning on using portable toilet rental services for your site or event, then there are a few important factors you need to take into consideration before you actually get the restrooms delivered.
How many people will regularly be on site? navigate here
You need to insure that portable restrooms are available for anyone who needs to make use of them, without the units getting clogged up, whilst also ideally avoiding any overly long lines from forming as people wait to use the facilities. A good rule of thumb is that for every fifty people present there should be at least one toilet, though if your event lasts a particularly long time (more than half a day), it’s probably worth supplying one toilet for every twenty five people on site.
How often should the toilets be serviced?
The answers to this question can vary widely, depending on the type of project you need the restrooms for, how long the toilets are going to be used on site, how many people are around and how often they make use of the restrooms. Portable toilet rental units should always be serviced at least once a day, though particularly busy events such as large scale multi-day music festivals may find it prudent to have them serviced two or even three times a day. Servicing portable toilets multiple times a day can become extremely expensive, an alternative option is to provide more restroom units instead so each individual toilet will require less frequent cleaning.
What type of portable restrooms do you need?
There are a wide variety of restroom styles, from basic single stand toilet units to multi stand toilet trucks that come with heated tanks which provide running water to guests.. At small events or short term work sites, single stall units with hand sanitizer may well be enough. For large events or on sites without easy access to water, it’s a good idea to mix several kinds of different portable toilet rentals together, so that you have all necessary facilities covered without incurring excessive costs.
Will I need any extra’s beyond the units themselves?
With basic single stall portable toilet rental units most people will want to upgrade each toilet to some degree, say by adding a wash stand or using a chemical foot pump for cleaning out the toilet bowl after each visit. Also you should try to ensure there is always an adequate supply of hand sanitizer and toilet paper on site.
Will I need insurance?
Yes, when renting portable restrooms from a supplier you should make sure you have public liability insurance, as you are responsible for the safety of people using the units on your site.
