If you are hosting an outdoor event or conference, it is likely that you will need to rent portable toilets. But what do you know about them? This article briefly explains the different types of portable toilets and how to choose the ones which can best meet your needs.
When it comes to renting portable toilets, there are two important questions you should ask yourself.
To determine the number of portable toilets you may need, you would need to evaluate the itinerary and duration of the event. If food and drinks are served, you will also expect to see more portable toilet usage, especially in the case of beverages such as alcohol.
Similarly, portable toilet usage will be higher if the event is longer. Moreover, most people will need to use the bathroom every 3-4 hours on average. So if your event lasts longer than 6 hours, it is likely that you will need more portable toilets.
You should also consider the number and type of people attending. For example, women tend to take a slightly longer time in the toilet than men do. Children will also tend to visit the toilet more often than adults do. If you are hosting an outdoor event, it is important to note the demographic of your guests to order the right amount of portable toilets.
When deciding what kind of portable toilets you should rent, it is important to assess the setting and ambience of your event. Is it completely outdoors? You should also take into consideration the type of event you’re hosting, and for whom the event is held for.
If it is a luxury event, for example, you may want to go with a premium unit rented by a portable toilet company that offers that option. On the other hand, if your event is a regular outdoor conference, a regular portable toilet with the basic amenities should be sufficient. It is important to check that the facilities provided are suitable for your needs. This includes the flushing system, the ventilation system, the lighting and wiring, and the hand soap dispenser amongst others.
