Three Things To Know About Renting Portable Toilets

Posted on: 31 January 2018

When you are responsible for organizing a large event, it will be necessary to make sure that there is an appropriate number of restrooms for your guests to use. If you will be hosting the event outdoors, this will require you to invest in toilet rentals for the duration of your event. Unfortunately, you may feel some sense of stress or be at a higher risk of making oversights if you lack some basic information about these rentals.

Will The Toilets Need Water Or Power Connections?

You may assume that you will need to provide a water or power connection for the portable toilets, but this is not necessary if you opt for fairly basic units. However, there are high-end rental toilets that may contain interior lighting, running water and other comforts. These units will require power and water connections. Yet, you may be able to meet these needs by opting to for a unit that is equipped with solar panels and you can use a portable water tank to provide the toilet with a source of water.

What If You Will Need The Toilets For Multiple Days?

In some situations, you may need to have the toilets for multiple days. Over this time, it will be necessary for their storage tanks to be emptied and the unit resupplied with toilet paper or other amenities. Most of these services will be able to provide ongoing maintenance services for toilets that will be rented for several days. This will ensure that the storage tank avoids becoming overly filled, but you will still be responsible for ensuring that the toilets are kept clean.

Should You Insure The Toilets Against The Risk Of Damage?

Unfortunately, you may find that some of the people attending your event are rather destructive. This can lead them to damage the toilets. Typically, it will be the responsibility of the person renting the toilet to pay for any repairs that will be required to these units. However, many of these rental services will offer the option to bundle an insurance policy with the rental so that you can be protected against these potential costs.

When renting a portable toilet, you will want to have at least a basic understanding of what will be involved with this rental. Otherwise, you may find that it is more difficult and confusing than is necessary. After realizing that some of these toiles may need water and power connections, the need to have the storage tanks of the toilets emptied regularly and the benefits of bundling an insurance policy, your experience renting these devices should be a smooth and stress-free process.
