3 Tips for Portable Toilet Renters

January 22, 2016

Top 3 Portable Toilet Rental Tips

There are a number of events for which you may want to rent a portable toilet in Taylor. A road race, a family event in a park that doesn’t have restroom facilities or a wedding or anniversary party on your acreage. However, renting a portable toilet isn’t as easy as just having a porta potty dropped off. Here are three important tips to follow when renting a portable toilet.

Taylor, TX Portable Toilet TipsMake sure you have enough

Portable toilets can be expensive, costing at least a couple hundred dollars a day or more depending on the size and style of the unit. So you may be tempted to skip on the number of porta potties. But that would be a bad idea. Not having enough portable restroom facilities for your guests can lead to long lines, angry, uncomfortable people and facilities that get overwhelmed with waste. Make sure you rent enough portable toilets to handle the number of guests you are going to have. A good rule of thumb to follow is one portable toilet for every 50 people, although if the event is more than four hours, then you should cut that ratio in half.

Match the type of toilet to the event

Portable toilets come in a variety of styles, from your basic brightly colored, single-stall chemical toilet, to trailers with flushable toilets, running water and private stalls. You should make sure to choose the right one. If you are hosting a concert or road race, simple porta potties are OK. However, if you have a more formal event, such as a wedding, it’s a good idea to provide nicer facilities, such as a trailer with flushing toilets and running water.

Make sure you are following the law

Before renting a portable toilet, make sure there are no laws against it. If you want to put porta potties in a public space to augment the facilities available because you are having a big event, you should check with the local municipality to ensure it is allowed and to see whether you need a permit. Even if you are putting the toilet facilities on private land, you should still check to make sure it is allowed. Some cities and towns have regulations regarding the placement and duration of portable toilets.
