A big part of planning any outdoor event is taking necessary steps to ensure that every guest can feel comfortable. If the event will be a lengthy one, such as an outdoor wedding followed by a reception or an all-day family reunion, finding ways to provide bathroom facilities is one of the most important factors in guest comfort. If you are planning a big outdoor event for the first time, portable toilet rentals are the way to go. If you are unsure of what factors you need to focus on in order to ensure that your guests will be able to relax and enjoy themselves, here are four helpful tips that focus on portable toilets.
Understand the basic makeup of your guest list
It's a well-known fact that men and women differ in their restroom use, as do children versus adults. By having a good idea of the ages and sexes of your guests, you will be able to more closely tailor the number of restrooms you will need when ordering them.
Consider the food or refreshments that will be served
Foods that are typically difficult or messy to eat in an outdoor setting, such as barbecue, will likely increase your guest's desire to visit the restroom and wash up.
Likewise, serving drinks such as alcohol and caffeinated beverages can increase the need for guests to urinate, especially if these beverages are offered throughout the event. When planning your outdoor event, taking a good look at the menu is a good way to get a more accurate number when ordering both portable toilets and hand washing facilities.
Consider where you will need to locate the portable toilets
Another factor that you will need to consider before renting portable toilets for your outdoor event is where you will locate them. Because convenient access will be important to your guest's comfort, you should consider placing them within a brief walking distance of the activities.
Decide how, or if, you wish to add privacy
You can help conceal their presence from view and help your guests enjoy more privacy when accessing them by erecting an attractive temporary fence or display in front of the portable toilet area. If your event is a formal one, such as a wedding, putting up some panels of inexpensive lattice interwoven with greenery is an effective foil. More rustic events, such as family reunions, might utilize stacks of baled hay or straw for a more casual flair.

Hi there, I am Wes Nelson. When I lived in my first home, I discovered the plumbing connected directly to a septic system on the land. The septic system consisted of a tank, lines and leach field that processed the waste. I had to quickly learn how the septic system worked to keep it in good shape. I had to pay close attention to the substances I sent down the drains or flushed down the toilet. I did not want to disrupt the colonies of bacteria hard at work processing the waste products. On this site, I would like to help others keep their septic system in good working order by sharing the information I discovered. Please visit again soon.
