Porta Potty Rental

Where Do You Need It?

Porta Potty Rental Guide

Porta potties are known by several names names such as portable toilets, port-a-johns, and temporary restrooms. Porta potties are frequently used at outdoor weddings, at camping grounds, on construction sites, at county fairs, on farms and ranches, at concert venues, and other places where access to indoor plumbing is limited. Porta potties are also commonly rented for use at graduation parties, during home renovations, on movie sets, or even during disaster situations.

There are several types of porta potties to choose from. Once you choose the style of porta potty that will work best for your event, you will also need to figure out how many porta potties you need. Porta potty rental rates are determined by the type of unit, optional features, length of rental, and the rental site location. Equipmentrentalpros.com provides all of the information you need to rent a porta potty for your job site or upcoming event.

Choosing the Right Type of Porta Potty

The style of porta potty you pick depends on the intended purpose or event. A regular or standard porta potty with no accessories is probably sufficient for use on a short term work site, while a VIP-style restroom trailer would be a better choice for an outdoor wedding reception. Choose the porta potty required for your setting based on the features you desire:

Standard Porta Potty

The standard portable toilet has a locking door with an “occupied” signal, a toilet seat, a toilet paper dispenser, and ventilation in the side walls. Rentals typically come with toilet seat covers and two rolls of toilet tissue.

Deluxe Portable Restroom

The deluxe portable restroom is approximately the same size as a standard unit; however, the deluxe version also comes with a hands-free sink. The freshwater sink is operated by a foot pump and allows workers or guests to wash their hands after use of the facilities. The deluxe restroom usually comes with soap and a paper towel dispenser.

Deluxe Porta Potty with Flushing Feature

In addition to the hands-free sink that comes with the deluxe portable restroom, the deluxe porta potty with a flushing feature also has a hands-free freshwater flush toilet. This style has a small shelf, a mirror, and a coat hook as well.

High Rise Temporary Toilet

The high rise temporary toilet comes in two styles. The first is a wheeled unit with smaller measurements than a standard porta potty for mobility on a job site. The second is equipped with hooks and can be hoisted to upper levels of high-rise construction sites by a crane.

Family Porta Potty

The family porta potty is much larger than a standard unit and has a changing table, sturdy hooks for hanging a purse or diaper bag, interior lighting, and a garbage can.

Wheelchair Accessible/ADA Compliant Temporary Restroom

The ADA compliant portable restroom has a no barrier threshold, an extra wide door, and steel handrails. ADA compliant porta potties are roomy enough for a standard wheelchair to enter, make a complete turnabout, and then exit. These restrooms are equipped with the standard occupancy latch and toilet seat cover.

VIP Solar Porta Potties

VIP solar restrooms are larger than a standard porta potty and have a set up similar to a conventional bathroom. The VIP solar unit is well lit and has a hand-washing sink. Some units are climate controlled.

Trailer Restrooms

You can rent restroom trailers in several configurations. The most basic level is made with quality materials and features a men’s room with a stall and urinals, as well as a women’s room with three stalls. The restroom has a sink with running water, ambient lighting, a stereo system, and climate control features. Larger and more elaborate designs are made with premium materials and have a private stall set up as opposed to partitioned walls.

Figuring Out How Many Porta Potties You Need

If you are renting portable toilets for a construction site, farm, or other work zone, you should plan on having one porta potty available for each group of ten employees. This figure is based on an average work week. Plan to add more units if you are running two work shifts on your site.

Figuring out the number of porta potties you need to rent for a wedding, renaissance fair, concert, or other event is a bit more complicated. Not only do you need to estimate the expected number of attendees, but you must also keep in mind the length of the event and whether food and beverages will be served (as this will increase the use of facilities significantly). The following porta potty rental chart can help you determine how many portable toilets you need to rent. Additionally, you can refer to your local county public health unit for assistance in determining an exact number, as they may have specific requirements for the ratio of portable toilets to event attendees.
