From large events to lengthy construction projects, your staff and guests are going to need a place to comfortably go to the bathroom. Porta potty rentals are one of the best options out there but ordering too many could leave your wallet feeling sad, and too few could leave you with many guests doing the universal “pee pee dance.”
Ordering the right amount of porta potties. Here are some ways you can examine just exactly how many porta potties you need for your event.
HOW LONG AND HOW MANY?
The length of your event matters when it comes to the number of porta potties you will need. The longer your event is, the more units you will need.
Increasing your number of units is crucial if you are holding an event that is both long and heavily populated. Fortunately for you, there is a way to calculate your needs based on the information you have available surrounding your event.
The experts at Pot-O-Gold will be able to help you accurately estimate the number of porta potties you’ll need based on the details of your event. Some examples of estimations could be:
250 guest event for 4 hours = 3 porta potties
4,000 guest event for 3 hours = 30 units
These numbers are just examples, but one of our amazing staff will be able to help you select the perfect amount of porta potties plus any amenities like hand-washing sinks etc. you would need.
ARE THERE BRICK AND MORTAR RESTROOMS?
If you are holding your event in a public space like a park or at a venue with available restrooms, then you wish to rent fewer porta potties and hand-washing sinks than a standard calculation would estimate.
Before you make a definitive decision on whether or not to reduce the number of units, it’s always best to check with your venue operator to ensure the permanent restrooms will be available on the date of your event.
HOW MANY HANDICAP ACCESSIBLE RESTROOMS ARE NEEDED?
The Americans with Disabilities Act has had a profound impact on the portable restroom industry and how rentals are handled. When planning your event, it’s important to keep in mind that there should be a minimum of one handicap-accessible restroom on the premises, and one for every 20 additional non-handicap units rented. We carry both standard handicap-accessible units and those that are ADA-Compliant.
