Here’s a fun fact: the fear of public toilets and porta potties is called paruresis or portaphobia!

As the wise Parvathy once said, “We only fear what we don’t understand,” and porta potties aren’t exactly a popular topic for conversation. People have many questions about these portable restroom boxes!

If you’ve ever been told to watch your “potty mouth” at the dinner table, you’ve come to the right place! 

We’ve got the answers to all of your porta potty rental questions. 

When Do I Need a Porta Potty Rental?

Anytime your guests or employees are separated from indoor facilities for over an hour, you should consider renting a porta potty. Restroom access is a basic necessity for outdoor events and a right for workers. It’s much better to have one and not need it than to need it and not have one!

Are Porta Potties Clean?

Yes, porta potties are as sanitary as an ordinary restroom. Because we know you’re curious, the blue potty liquid is a biocide that kills germs and eliminates odors on contact! Porta potties are always pumped and cleaned between rentals, so they’ll arrive at your even fresh and ready to go.

At some large events, like music festivals, potties are bound to become a little messy. As with any restroom, some light cleaning may be necessary throughout the duration of your event or project. FusionSite’s porta potty rentals come with our 10-point cleaning service and maintenance included!

What Happens to the Waste?

When the porta potty tanks become full, or your event ends, our maintenance crew will pump the tanks and clean the porta potties. We will then transport the waste to a nearby treatment plant. Portable toilets are surprisingly very eco-friendly because they don’t require water to flush!

Which Porta Potty Is Right for Me?

Gone are the days of one-size-fits-all portable toilet rentals. Modern porta potties come in all shapes and sizes with varying amenities! 

Standard porta potties have all the necessities for an event or construction site. These units include dome light ceilings, locking doors, grated flooring, and a seated toilet. 

FusionSite also offers special toilets and handicap-accessible units for large events. These porta potties are slightly larger and include all of the features of a standard porta potty. Some units may also include a standing urinal. 

Luxury restroom trailers are our most posh potty option. These restroom trailers are perfect for special events like weddings and corporate events. Luxury restroom trailers are similar to standard bathrooms, with flushing toilets, air conditioning, and handwashing stations. 

How Many Porta Potties Will I Need?

In general, you should plan to have at least one standard porta potty per 50 people per five hours. For example, a 10-hour event with 200 people should have at least eight porta potties!

When in doubt, it’s better to avoid any potty catastrophes! Talk to your FusionSite expert about the size and scope of your event. We’re happy to help you determine the number of porta potty rentals you’ll need.
