Portable Toilet Placement

When you need Fairfield portable toilets for an event, a construction site, a remodeling project, or any other reason, you will need to place them just right to make them accessible and operational. No one wants to use a portable toilet sitting on uneven ground, for example. When you hire professionals to come in and place the rented portable toilets, they will be able to place them in the best spot for serviceable use. However, it’s good to look around your location and have an idea where you want them so you can plan other features around them. Here are a few guidelines that professionals will use for the placement process:  

Dry And Level Locations 

The first rule you will follow is that you will want to place portable toilets on dry, level locations only. If the ground isn’t dry, the units can sink into the grass, mud, or whatever else is beneath them. And no one wants to go into a tilting portable toilet. It’s a danger no one wants to take on.  

Accessibility 

This is something you can definitely think about in advance. Where will your guests be located? If the area is small, the portable toilet can go anywhere. If things are large and spread out, you will want to strategically set up the units in locations throughout the grounds. 

 

The Right Number 

You will also want to decide how many portable toilets you will need for your location. How long will people be there? How many people? Will there be beverages served or are they allowed to be brought in? You will want to have all of that thought out so you can rent the right amount and place them in the right locations.  

Service Abilities 

You will also need to place the portable toilets so that the service trucks can get in and out to deliver them, pick them up, and service them while they are there. The portable toilets have to be places where the trucks can access them. They can’t be so remote that they can only be carried in.   

Permits 

Some events and locations take certain permits, especially for public venues. You will want to make sure you have those permits lined up before you start the rental process so you don’t find yourself in a bind later.

How Many Portable Toilets Do You Need?

When you are hosting an outdoor event without any nearby facilities, you will need to consider bringing in Santa Rosa portable toilets. But is just on enough or do you need several? You will want to think ahead with care so you don’t end up with desperate individuals in one long bathroom line. Here are some of the items to consider.  

Number Of Attendees 

How many people do you expect to attend your event? A couple of dozen? Hundreds? More? The number of people who will be at the event will help you determine how many portable toilets you need. If you’re only having 50, you could get away with one portable toilet. If you are having 1,000, you’ll need at least 5 or maybe even more.  

Event Hours 

How many hours long is the event you’re hosting? If the event is short, just a couple of hours, you won’t need as many portable toilets as you would if the event is a whole day. Increase the number of toilets the more hours the event runs.  

Service Options 

Are you serving food and beverages at the event? If so, you’ll want to ensure there are enough portable toilets and you will want more than if you are not serving anything. Even if you don’t serve drinks, if people are allowed to bring their own, you’ll need to accommodate them afterwards.  

Hand Wash Stations  

Some portable toilets come with sinks and handwashing capabilities. If you get standard portable toilets, they do not and you will want to add one handwashing station to every four portable toilets to give people the ability to clean up.  

Weekly Portable Toilets 

If you are running a jobsite and not an event, you will want to think about how many shifts are being worked on the site and with how many people. You can usually accommodate 10 workers during a 40-hour week with just one portable toilet. If you have more than that, it’s important to calculate and add more toilets to the site to meet their needs.
