Portable toilets are usually a convenience for people attending an outdoor event. Concerts typically have one portable toilet per 60 fans however when alcoholic beverages are served it is recommended to increase these by about 13%. Many people consider these units a last resort, however over the years portable toilets and restroom trailers have become more convenient, nice and popular. They are convenient, save approximately 45 billion gallons of water per year and offer a portable solution for a very normal need.
When considering a portable toilet or restroom trailers for your guests, there are a few things you should consider before making your decision. Read below to see important considerations before making your choice.
Cleaning of restroom trailers is similar to cleaning of a regular restroom. The one thing you want to keep in mind is that restroom trailer rentals see much more traffic compared to a normal restroom. For this reason extra maintenance may be required of your restroom trailer rental. Disinfectant spray can be used on most hard surfaces. Sinks and portable toilets can be cleaned and wiped down with disinfectant spray. Floors can be cleaned with water and disinfectant spray. Always ensure that soap and towels are available for patrons to wash their hands. Portable toilet rentals have gotten a bad reputation for being full of germs, but with a little work your restroom trailers can be clean, fresh and welcoming.
One must remember that restroom trailers are portable, meaning they get transported from one place to another depending on their needs. This means that the plumbing lines outside can get weak from the wear and tear of being transported. There is nothing worse than a leaky line leaking sewage because of a loose hose. Thorough inspection of all fittings and hoses should occur with each trip and as needed for as long as the trailers are in place.
Restroom trailers are typically larger than normal portable toilets. This means that much more care should be taken when considering where to place them. They should have adequate room not only to be placed but for patrons to comfortably be able to enter and exit the trailer. The area needs to be flat and relatively dry in order for them to be placed securely. Making sure the placement is correct ensures safety of those using the units as well as the entire unit itself.
Remembering these facts will not only help you make the right choice when it comes to portable toilets, but also help keep them in optimum shape during use. These units offer convenience when no other restrooms are available, therefore you want to make them as enjoyable as can be. Consider carefully, and use care and caution when setting up and cleaning, and your patrons are sure to enjoy their experience as much as can be expected, and appreciate the fact that there are units available for use.
