Everything You Need to Know before Renting a Porta Potty

by James Smith Business

Most of us have used a portable restroom before at some point in our lives. Whether you’ve heard it referred to as such, or as a porta-potty, port-o-John, Johnny on the Spot or something entirely different, we’re all familiar with the concept of the convenient, temporary, outdoor toilet.


For those planning an outdoor event, securing the proper number of these facilities is crucial. Without safe, clean restroom facilities, your guests can become uncomfortable, may leave your event or may face health and safety concerns. If you’re not sure what goes into planning for proper restroom setup or how to go about securing the facilities you’ll need, check out this brief, helpful guide to renting your first portable toilets:

When and Where?


Renting from a local provider is a good idea. If you need a porta-potty in Clovis, you’ll want to consult a Clovis-area dealer in these types of rentals. They will likely be able to offer you the best price, seasonal specials, and even specific discounts based on the type of event and the duration of your rental.


When you rent will be determined by when your event is, but keep in mind that longer rentals are often cheaper than those of a shorter duration. This is because the highest cost to the company themselves is providing transportation and waste disposal, so the longer you rent, the less you’ll pay per day.


How Many?


How many units will you need for your Clovis area porta-potty rental? Consider this as rule of thumb:


For every fifty guests and single hour, rent one restroom unit. Use simple multiplication from there. (100 guests, 2 hours, two restroom units.) For every twenty units rented for a public venue, add at least one handicap-accessible unit. For events where alcohol is served, increase your number by 20%. Provide one handwashing station for every four restroom units, or a minimum of one per event.

When in doubt, always opt for more rather than less. You can really never have too many bathrooms!


What Style of Restroom?


For every type of event, there is a different style of a portable restroom. Some of the most popular are large, multi-user trailers – sometimes with installed lighting, mirrors and more – for large or elegant events, or single-user stalls for those where offering privacy is more important than exquisite amenities. No matter what you need, you are bound to find it when you consult your local provider of porta-potty rentals!


Final Thoughts


Whatever you choose to do for your next outdoor event, be sure to keep your guests – and your own – health, safety and comfort in mind. Make this your priority, and your event is bound to be a success!
