 Solving a Problem

A few weeks ago, my husband and I met with a general contractor. We talked with this professional about building an addition onto our small home. At this time, he informed us about a problem with our septic tank. We learned we would have to relocate a couple of septic lines before construction could begin on our home. Are you considering building an addition onto your house or business? Before you get too far along in this complex process, think about consulting with someone from a reputable septic service in your area. An expert from a septic service can inform you if your current septic tank will be large enough to accommodate the addition. On this blog, I hope you will discover the most common tasks performed by septic services. Enjoy!

When Renting A Portable Toilet May Be Your Best Option

Debra Chapman

Renting a portable toilet or porta potty for situations that require restrooms but the infrastructure is not available is often one of the best solutions you have. The porta potty rental service you are working with can help you select the right one for your situation and get it set up.

Camps and Cabins

If you have a piece of land, you camp on or a cabin that does not have plumbing in it but is accessible by truck, a porta potty rental could be a good fit. Not all parcels of land have the option to put an outhouse in or install septic services, but if the porta potty rental company can get a truck onto your site, they can drop the unit off for you.

Most porta potty rental companies also provide service for the unit while it is on the property, so you don't need to deal with emptying it or disposing of the waste when the portable toilet is full.

If you have a camp with multiple cabins or campsites, renting several units for the season and having them serviced regularly can be a good solution and keep your campers happy in most cases. 

Job Sites

A commonplace to see porta-potty rentals is on a construction site. In many cases, the site does not have plumbing that is working yet, so providing a place for workers to use during their shift is critical. The porta potty rental company can place several toilets for you and keep them clean, so people are comfortable using them. 

In some situations, you may need three or four portable toilets on the site, especially if you have a large crew working around the clock on a major project. The frequency of cleaning is something you will have to negotiate with the rental company, but in most situations, once or twice a week is enough to keep the portable toilets clean and ready for use. 

Public Outdoor Events

Outdoor events can often present a challenge when it comes to providing bathroom services. If the even is something like a street fair or an event that is in a public place but does not have public restrooms nearby, contracting porta potty rentals and having them set up strategically around the event is sometimes the most practical solution. 

If you are renting portable toilets for an event like this, make sure to include a few handicap-accessible toilets for people that need more room or will need to access the toilet but are in a wheelchair. These handicapped accessible units are readily available but ask the porta potty rental company about them early in the process because most companies have limited quantities of accessible units.
