It Pays to Plan - Outdoor Event Planning for Porta Potty Rental
May 28th, 2018
Planning an outdoor event for both large and small crowds deserves much thought and effort. Whether you are planning a festival, marathon, wedding or backyard BBQ, it pays to plan for the proper number of portable restrooms. Studies have shown that providing ample restroom facilities significantly impacts event attendance and profitability. Here are a few things to consider when planning your next porta potty rental for outdoor events.
Number of guests
Determining the number of guests you expect to attend is crucial for planning. You can estimate event attendance from ticket sales, previous year attendance, and or/attendance from similar events. Be sure to include all event staff , vendors, and security that will use restroom facilities along with guests. For VIP guests needing a more exclusive restroom option, consider luxury restroom trailers or all-inclusive units.
Length of event
The duration of the event also plays an important role in planning your porta potty rental. On average, event attendees will use restroom facilities every four hours. For events which last longer than four hours, additional units should be planned. Additional units should also be considered for peak hours where everyone may need to use the restroom at the same time such as intermissions and breaks.
Food and Beverage Consumption
Food and beverage consumption will increase usage of the restroom facilities. Therefore, you will need to increase the number of portable restrooms you include in your rental by ten to twenty percent. You should also plan to add hand hygiene equipment such as hand wash stations or sanitizer to ensure guests stay clean and germ free. We recommend one hand wash station for every ten portable toilets.
Placement is another important factor that can affect the success of your event. Restrooms should be dispersed in proximity to users and in high traffic areas such as entrances, exits, and food and beverage stands. Ideal placement for your rental will be on a dry, flat terrain that is accessible by a service truck. For public events that require ADA portable toilets, the units must be placed where they are easily accessible to those with physical limitations.
