Portable toilets are ideal solutions for outdoor events like street fairs, weddings, and concerts. Yet, anyone who hasn’t rented one before may have some questions. If you’re planning for an upcoming event, take a moment to review the most commonly asked questions with answers provided by Johnny’s A-1 Sanitation, a porta-potty rental service in Middletown, OH.
5 Common Questions About Portable Toilets
What Are My Rental Options?
There are many types of units to accommodate a wide range of needs. For events, both standard (non-flushing) and flushing units are available. For extended needs, long-term and heavy-duty construction units are available and can be serviced regularly.
How Many Will I Need?
The duration of your event and anticipated number of guests will dictate the number of portable toilets you’ll need. Generally, you should aim to have one unit for every 50 people at events lasting one to four hours, and two for the same number of attendees for events running five or more hours.
What’s Included in the Unit?
The units provided by Johnny’s A-1 Sanitation are equipped with hand sanitizer, mirrors, and two rolls of toilet paper. In flush models, fresh water, sinks, soap, paper towels, and a trash can are also provided.
Are They Wheelchair Accessible?
Larger handicap units are also available for rent to accommodate guests with wheelchairs. These units measure 91” x 62” x 62,” versus the standard event units which are 88” x 44” x 48” in size. It’s a good idea to rent at least one handicap unit to ensure any attendees with mobility challenges can use the facilities comfortably.
Where Should They Be Placed?
Portable toilets can be placed virtually anywhere outdoors, as long as there is a sturdy, level surface. You should avoid any obstacles such as low-hanging tree branches or fences. Ideally, there should also be ample space for lines to form.
