Tips For Placing Portable Potties In The Right Locations

Posted on

Do you have an event that you are preparing for? One of the things you must keep at the forefront of your thoughts is how your guests are going to use the restroom when necessary. You can get just about everything right when it comes to your event but if you don't have proper bathroom facilities, people will get agitated fast.

An easy way to solve this problem is to rent portable toilets. If you're wondering exactly where you should place your porta potties to make sure it's convenient for your guests, here are some tips to assist you.

Measure Everywhere

When deciding on locations for your portable toilets you must select the areas carefully. You must measure each location to make sure that you will have enough room for the number of porta potties and the style that you want to place in that location.

Make sure that you are placing your porta potties in strategic locations around your event. Porta potties should neither be too far away from the main activities nor too close to them either.

Check that the Ground Is Solid

The best thing you can do is to make sure that you find somewhere that has solid grounding. Check the ground to make sure that it is not soft or uneven. If you set porta potties on bad soil, they could either sink or tip over, and this could be catastrophic.

Delivery and Cleaning

As mentioned before you should make sure that the portable toilets are enough distance away from where a lot of crowds will be. If there are any odors from the porta potty, you want to make sure that the crowd is not privy to it. With that being said, you need to select a location that is easily accessible for delivery and cleaning of the portable toilets, as well, so choose wisely.

Consider Security 

If your event will take place at night, make sure that you place porta potties in well-lit areas. This will ensure that your guests can go to the bathroom safely without feeling uncomfortable.

Renting portable toilets is one of the most practical solutions for large events. However, as you can see there are a few things you need to take into consideration when selecting locations for these toilets. Once you keep the things discussed here at the forefront of your mind, you should have suitable bathroom arrangements for your guests.
