How Many Porta Potties Do You Really Need?

From large events to lengthy construction projects, your staff and guests are going to need a place to comfortably use the restroom. Porta potty rentals are an affordable option, but ordering too many could bust your budget, and too few could leave you with disgruntled guests.

Hitting the sweet spot with a portable restroom rental is essential. Here are some ways you can examine just exactly how many porta potties you need for your plans.

What is the Length and Crowd Expectancy of Your Event?

The length of your event matters when it comes to the number of portable restrooms you’ll need onsite. Essentially, the longer your event, the more units you’ll need as time moves on and more and more people find they need to use the restroom.

Upping up your numbers is especially crucial if you are running an event that is both long and crowded. Fortunately, there is a way to calculate your needs based on the information you have available surrounding your event.

The experts at Texas Johns will be able to help you accurately estimate the number of porta potties you’ll need based on event details. Some examples of estimations could be:

  • 250 guest wedding for 4 hours = 3 porta potties
  • 4,000 guest concert for 3 hours = 30 units

The numbers are variable, but one of our team members will be able to help you select the perfect amount of units plus amenities like hand-washing stations for your event.

Are Permanent Restrooms Onsite?

This is also a detail you’ll need to take into account. If you are operating your event in a public space like a park or venue with available restrooms, then you may be renting out less units than a calculation would estimate. 

However, before you make a definitive decision on whether or not to reduce the number of portable toilets, it’s always best to check with your venue operator to ensure the permanent restrooms will be available on the date of your event.

How Many Handicap Accessible Restrooms Necessary?

The Americans with Disabilities Act has had a profound impact on the portable restroom industry and how rentals are handled. When planning your event, it’s important to keep in mind that there should be a minimum of one handicap-accessible restroom on the premises, and one for every 20 additional non-handicap units rented.
