How Long Can You Use a Porta Potty?
It is almost that time of the year when you keep your eyes peeled for those first green shoots of the season. Perhaps you have already started planning a bunch of backyard parties at your Hamilton home, from spring through summer. For outdoor events where you host over 20 people, bathroom demand will exceed availability, even if your guests use the bathrooms in your home. Renting a porta potty is a convenient option that will benefit you and your guests.
So how many times can you use a porta potty? Do you worry that a porta potty may start smelling or overflowing, or may not be sanitary enough for your guests? Can a porta potty last through the entire line-up of events you have, all weekend long or perhaps even for a few weeks?
Rent the Right Number of Porta Potties
Once you have decided to rent portable bathrooms for your Hamilton events, it is important to assess the optimum number of units to rent. Usually this depends on a combination of the number of people invited, and the length of your events. Here is a reference chart. A regular porta potty can hold up to 60 gallons (227 litres) of waste. Typically, for a 1 – 4 hour long event, with up to 50 people, a single porta potty should be sufficient.
Ensure Porta Potty Maintenance
After you have rented the right number of porta potties, it is important to ensure their upkeep and maintenance.
- Don’t stress about the cleanup: You may have enough cleaning to do after your events and parties, but you won’t need to worry about the porta potties. Your portable bathroom provider will offer a maintenance service along with the rental. Their service teams will pump, clean, sanitize, and restock the portable bathrooms, leaving them ready for your next event.
- Do some basic DIY maintenance: Be a caring host and keep an eye out on your porta potties. At times, depending on the usage and length of rental, some basic attention may be required before the servicing team comes in. If such an occasion arises, simply deodorize the porta potty, and re-stock toilet paper and tissues to ensure your guests are not inconvenienced.
Rent a Portable Bathroom for Your Hamilton Events
Be prepared for plenty of compliments for being a thoughtful host at your upcoming parties and events. Rent a portable bathroom and provide your guests a sanitary and convenient porta potty experience, rather than having them rush in and out of your private bathrooms.
As a host, you will find the portable bathrooms to be economical and hassle-free. Pitton Plumbing can help determine the right number of portable bathrooms that cater to your needs, guest count, and budget. Book your portable bathrooms early before the seasonal rush begins!
