Everything You Need to Know About Portable Toilet Hire

Over the past few years, the events industry has seen exponential growth, whether it be a festival, a corporate function, or a private event.

As the industry has grown, so have the needs of the event goers, as well as the list of items required for the event. One such factor that cannot be forgotten, nor left for last minute, is the hygiene factors of the event. Did you know that it is a safety regulation to have a specific number of portable toilets available for a certain amount of event goers? This is both for the convenience of the event goer, as well as the maintenance of the portable toilet.

Most toilet hire companies in Cape Town will provide you with the number of toilets needed for a specific number of guests. This is to ensure that the cisterns do not become clogged, nor over-filled. Even though portable toilets have gone through several improvements and changes over the years, in terms of their design and functionality, there is still only so much waste they can take.

The type of event you host will determine the type of portable toilet you require. They now come in a variety of models, add-ons, and sizes, making them far more comfortable and functional. There are several different factors to consider when choosing these types of toilets, some of which will be discussed below.

The number of people that will be attending the event: As previously stated, you need to take the number of event goers into account when deciding what types of portable toilets you want to hire, as well as the number of toilets you plan on hiring. There should be a proportional number of toilets to the number of attendees.

The type of event you are hosting: While the number of people attending is of vital importance, the type of event you are hosting is the first consideration you need to take into account. If you are hiring toilets for a construction site, a wedding, a corporate event, a concert, or any other public event, you need to decide which type of toilet would be best for your attendees.

The layout of the location where the event will be held: This is important, as the size of the land will also determine the number of toilets you require. It is recommended that you place them in visible spots, as well as spread them throughout the location to ensure added convenience.

The features of the different portable toilets: Finally, you need to determine what types of features you require in the portable toilet. For example, do you require mirrors and lighting? If it is a ‘fancy’ event, you may also need to opt for a VIP toilet rather than a simply flush toilet. Another vital feature to consider is whether you will require a portable toilet that is accessible for the disabled.

There you have it – everything you need to know about hiring the right types of toilets.
