Proper sanitation is one of the most fundamental requirements for quality human life. Portable toilets are useful in several different situations. If you are convening a large outdoor event like a festival or concert; there must be sufficient portable toilets for all the attendees. Construction sites should also have portable toilets, especially if the indoor planning has not yet been done. One can rent portable toilets; however, if you intend to regularly use them for extended periods of time, it's advisable to purchase new or used portable toilets. They come in a wide variety of configurations and prices; so whatever personal requirements you have, you are guaranteed to find the right fit.
The first thing you need to figure out before buying or renting portable toilets is the number of people with require access to them. As a general rule of thumb, there has to be a single portable toilet for every 50 to 100 individuals. If the event goes beyond three hours, there should be an additional toilet for every 50 to 100 individuals. You can seek advice from the vendor on the number you should get.
The next thing you should determine is the type of toilets you will require.
Cold wash Vs. Standard
These are probably the most common types of portable toilets. They are widely used during events and on most construction sites.
Hot wash portable toilets have the same dimensions as their standard counterparts. However, these toilets can offer running hot water and have a larger wash basin for full forearm submission. They typically require a connection to an electrical supply.
As the name would suggest, these portable toilets are specifically designed for people on wheelchairs. They typically have the same features as standard toilets plus added attributes like low-level toilets, non-slip flooring and grab rails; all engineered to ensure ease of use for occupants. There should be at least one wheelchair accessible portable toilet at any event.
These are portable toilets used where a mains sewer connection is available. They are ideal for construction sites where the project is expected to last long.
Once you have established the core requirements you can look into extra amenities for the portable toilets like hand-sanitiser dispensers and air fresheners.
