Your Guide to Porta Potty Rentals
How Many People Are Expected?
The number of porta potties you need is a function of how many people you expect to attend the event and how long it will last. For events hosting 500 guests, two portable restroom rentals should be adequate. However, for every additional 500 guests, you should plan on adding another unit.
How Long Will the Event Last?
For events lasting an hour or two, the number of porta potties can be calculated by considering only the size of the crowd. However, for longer events, you will need to increase the number of facilities to handle increased demand. Add another porta potty per 500 guests for each hour or two the event will last. This should be sufficient, even if food and nonalcoholic beverages are served.
The consumption of alcohol is likely to increase demand for facilities, so if you plan to serve alcohol to your guests, make an appropriate adjustment. Also, consider reserving more if you anticipate high female turnout or if your guests will be involved in strenuous activities that might make them hydrate frequently. Finally, discuss the availability of toilets for people with disabilities with your rental facility.
