Calculating Portable Toilet Needs

When hosting an outdoor wedding, a festival, or have people working at the works site, you may be asking yourself, “how many portable toilet rentals do I need?” It is crucial that you are properly calculating portable toilet needs.

If you are planning an outdoor event, then the bathroom situation and sanitation should top the list. 

The general thumb rule is that you will need portable toilet rentals for any temporary outdoor event and even house parties where the indoor facilities may not be enough.

Renting portable toilets will make a difference in how long people will stay and focus on your event. If you are renting for a work site like a construction site, it will help your employees focus more on the project at hand. But how do you calculate portable toilet need?

Casa Grande Rent A Can is here to guide you on planning for your portable toilet needs that will make for your event.

How many guests do you anticipate? 

When estimating the number of portable toilets you need, it is crucial to know the number of attendees to your event. You will need to consider renting enough mobile toilet units to avoid people making long queues to use the bathroom. The rental company will recommend the right package and quote, depending on the size of your occasion. According to industry standards, you should rent one portable restroom for every 30 people attending. However, that can change depending on other factors like the weather condition of the day. 

Additionally, knowing the number of females attending the event can help. The number of porta potties will significantly increase if you have more females than males attending the event. We can help you come up with a portable toilet rental estimate.

Are you serving food and drinks during the event?

Another factor that is crucial when calculating portable toilet needs is if you will be serving foods and drinks. On average, a person will visit the bathroom every four hours. If you offer food and beverages, you should expect people to use the bathroom more frequently. You may even need to consider having handwashing stations to make your visitors more comfortable. Order more portable restrooms so that your guests can enjoy the food and refreshments without worrying about using the bathroom.

Consider the duration of your event.

The duration of outdoor activities vary. Some may last a few hours, a day, a week, or even an entire month. Camping events, for example, will last several days and may need proper sanitation services throughout the period. Know the period of your event, and you will know how to budget for and get the right number of portable toilet units. Remember, the event duration and the number of attendees go hand in hand. With our mobile toilet rental experience here at Casa Grande, we can help you customize toilet rentals to match your needs.

Do you need ADA compliant toilet rentals?

ADA compliant portable restrooms are unique temporary toilet rentals that offer more room and comfort for disabled persons. Having these mobile toilet units is a plus to your event and shows that you care for all persons. When budgeting to rent a porta potties, consider ordering one ADA compliant porta potty unit for every twenty restrooms. No matter your occasion’s size, it is courteous to consider persons with disabilities and get them a service that accommodates their needs. The cost of renting ADA compliant portable toilets may differ due to the unique features. You can also consider restrooms with changing stations if you anticipate having mothers with toddlers attend the event. Also, you can add children’s portable toilets to your list of sanitation needs.
