As you plan your next large event, you’re checking all the boxes. There’s plenty of room for people to spread out, food, entertainment, and drinks! But, the human body can only hold 2 cups of urine before you risk organ damage! To keep your guests comfortable, you should make sure they have somewhere to relieve themselves. If you’re considering renting a portable toilet, there are a few things you should know first. Keep reading to learn everything you need to know before you finish the plans for your next outdoor event!

How Much Do They Cost?

Like many products, the price you pay depends on the amenities you want. For most standard portable stall units, the price ranges from $50 to $150.

If you want to upgrade to a more VIP toilet experience, there are other pricier options to consider. A luxury restroom trailer comes equipped with air conditioning, bright lighting, beautiful laminate floors, vanity mirrors, hand washing sinks, and even paper towels!

To get a better deal, ask the rental company if they offer reduced pricing if you order several stalls for the same event. Sometimes they’ll give you a break on the price per unit if you agree to rent a certain number of units.

How Many Portable Stalls Do You Need?

When deciding how many stalls to rent, consider how many guests you expect as well as the length of the event. Also, if food and drink are a major focus of your event, consider adding an extra stall or two to keep the bathroom lines short.

The rental company can help calculate how many stalls you need. But, for a group of fewer than 200 people and for 5 hours or less, you can get away with 2-3 units.

How Do You Clean a Portable Toilet?

Some people have the misconception that portable bathrooms aren’t sanitary. But, nothing is farther from the truth! Did you know that the cutting board in your kitchen could have up to 200 times more bacteria than a toilet seat!

Like any public use restroom, you’ll want to make sure each stall is clean and ready to go at the beginning and end of the day at least. You may even want to hire an attendant to keep consumables stocked and stalls tidy.

If your event lasts more than a couple of days, you’ll also want the rental company to come back and empty the waste tanks. Not sure if the tanks will need cleaning before the end of your event? Ask about units with larger capacity tanks!

You Worry About the Event Planning, We’ve Got the Bathrooms Covered

If you pick the right company, human waste management at your outdoor event is a breeze! Sit back, relax, and enjoy a breath of fresh air!

Once you know a bit more about portable stall toilets, rest assured that they are not dirty and scary as the myth insinuates. Besides, the last thing you want is your guests to leave looking for a bathroom, or worse, relieving themselves outdoors near your event!
