What are Portable Toilets?

Modern portable toilets were first conceived during World War II.  The owners of the shipyards in Long Beach, New Jersey, realized that the employees were losing a lot of valuable work time in the long trek from the ships back to the docks to answer nature’s call. They decided to construct small, portable cubicles that were made with wood or metal and contained a small holding tank. As a result, workers were happier and more productive, and this invention marked the start of the portable toilet industry.

Here are a few facts about portable toilets that may surprise you:

  • Toilet paper hasn’t always been available. Mass production of toilet paper didn’t start until the late 1800s
  • The blue liquid in a portable toilet is blue for a reason. The dye is used to cover the other ‘stuff’ in the tank.
  • Portable toilets conserve water. It’s estimated that portable toilets save about 45 billion gallons each year.

The Widest Variety of Portable Toilets

There are several types of modern portable toilets, each designed for the specific needs of the customer. At Fenceline Rentals, Ltd. we have all of these toilets in stock and ready to deliver to your job site or event venue.

  • Standard blue toilets-These are the ones you’ll see most often. Each one contains a toilet, a urinal, toilet paper, and hand sanitizer.
  • Executive hard sided toilets-These are more upscale and are comfortable even in the winter. They’re very sturdy and have a poly tank and base. They come with a 1250-watt force air baseboard heater with a thermostat. These bathrooms also feature a light, deadbolt locking system, and coat hook.
  • Insulated toilets- These offer an economical solution for heated bathrooms at your worksite. They have a forced air heater to keep the unit at a comfortable temperature in even the coldest weather. These units include an insulated cover that helps to keep the interior warm.
  • Wheelchair-accessible toilets-These units are designed to accommodate individuals who use wheelchairs. The wider doorways and ground-level floor access make this unit easy to access. The unit also features smooth handrails inside, and the door is self-closing.
  • High rise toilets-These are designed specifically for use at high-rise construction sites. These units are much smaller and lighter, making them easy to lift by crane or elevator into higher portions of the building construction, and they’re narrow enough to fit through doorways and onto elevators.

We’ve all seen portable toilets at construction sites, but here are a few other uses of portable toilets:

  • Movie Sets
  • Natural Disasters
  • Special Events
  • Road Races
  • Campgrounds
  • Weddings
  • Private Parties
  • Parades

Renting or purchasing portable toilets offers many benefits to you and your workers:

  • Customization-The number of portable toilets and their configuration at a job site or event is totally flexible and can be updated quickly as the customer’s needs change
  • Eco friendly-As stated earlier, portable toilets use far less water than regular flush toilets.
  • Sanitary-The use of portable toilets offers a flexible way to comply with CCOHS standards for Jobsite sanitation.
  • Safety & Efficiency-Providing portable washrooms is an excellent way to increase productivity, safety, and efficiency, as well as keep workers happy and comfortable.

Winters in Canada are among some of the harshest in the world!  In Alberta, it is common to experience temperatures that average -14 degrees Celsius and an average snowfall of 6.86 cm a month.  If you are working outdoors, these temperatures can prove to be problematic.  It is important to prepare yourself as well as your worksite for the cold weather. Portable toilets are a must for many jobsites.  Being proactive and putting in the work of preparation is key, so, let’s talk about some tips for winterizing your portable toilets.

Winterization Of Portable Toilets

Natural Solutions

Mother Nature can become a beast and present harsh winter conditions.  Instead of only focusing on fighting the weather, though, consider ways that you can use the benefits of nature in order to create solutions for the location of your outdoor portable toilet.  How can nature, or at least the outdoors, provide solutions?

Sun

Solar energy is an amazing resource! Try placing the portable toilet in direct sunlight in order to harness the warmth it can provide. If there is no location that can accommodate the crucial need for heat, you might consider a portable heater in the area where the outdoor portable toilet is located. It is important to be certain that these are turned off daily for safety purposes. Having set hours for a heater to be on/ off can create a routine that provides the necessary safety precautions for your environment.

Shelter

Use a structure- fence or building or even bushes- to create a barrier and decrease wind exposure which can quickly cause temperatures to drop even further. If there is no available structure, you may consider temporarily moving the portable toilet to a temporary indoor location, such as into a garage or shed.

Snow

As snow falls, it may begin to surround the base of the portable toilet. Be sure to clear snow from around the area in order to protect the temperature of the liquids and chemicals inside of the toilet. The addition of sandbags around the exterior base can also create a barrier of insulation that can assist in the prevention of freezing the toilet’s liquid.

 

Treatments

Just as in warmer seasons, your portable toilets will still need to be serviced to maintain healthy and sanitary conditions.  In order to keep the toilets more equipped for the winter season, there are several options, dependent upon the temperature and availability.

Salty Brine

Just as with roads and being able to drive safely during wintery conditions, salt can be used in portable toilets. Salt reduces the freezing point for liquids.  Adding a salty mixture to the liquid can help prevent solidification of the liquids up to (or down to) a certain point.

Antifreeze

Antifreeze can be mixed in with the deodorizing water that is placed in the tank. It works to keep the water liquid and unfrozen in colder climates. All the antifreeze products and other chemicals must be acceptable for disposal at local wastewater facilities.

Chloride Pellet Mix

One of the most effective ways to winterize an outdoor portable toilet is to add a chloride pellet into the toilet bowl solution.  These pellets are able to act as insulation and can withstand temperatures as low as -31 degrees Celsius. While effective, the chloride pellet mix has a one-week lifespan, so be sure that you have requested services accordingly.

Preparing for outdoor events can be exciting!  Whether you are planning for a special occasion or for the excitement and promise of a construction site, including outdoor toilets in your plan is essential to the success of your event or project!

All the logistics can become a bit overwhelming, so let us help! Here are 5 essential steps to keeping your portable toilets clean!

  1. Be prepared for the number of people at your worksite or event.
  2. Keep your portable toilet serviced
  3. Maintain a sufficient supply of hygiene products.
  4. Deodorize!
  5. Be prepared for the weather!

Portable Toilets Rental in Edmonton

Be prepared for the number of people at your worksite or event!

Order enough units! Knowing the number of people needing to access as well as the duration of guests’ stay is critical to the success of the unit.  They typical rule for the accommodations is that, for 4 hours, you need 1 portable toilet per 50 individuals. If there is food and/ or alcohol at the event, this number may need to increase slightly.  Additionally, more portable toilets are needed if there are significantly more women than men and the total should increase by 10%-20%. If the portable toilets are being used for a work site, a good number is one toilet per 10 workers.

Keep your portable toilet serviced.

Bad smells in a portable toilet are a direct indication of the lack of cleanliness, health, and safety. Depending on the usage, a portable toilet should be cleaned once a week. A unit should be completely pumped and the hose should be all of the ways at the bottom and to the side in order to prevent debris from being sucked and clogged in the hose. When a portable toilet is cleaned, the septic tank is refilled with an additive that breaks down and cleans the waste.  When cleaning, the door to the unit should be kept open, allowing the odors and air to circulate. Fresh air is also important to provide between cleanings. Cleaning surfaces (floors and other surfaces) with warm, soapy water with, perhaps, a pressure water gun removes the most germs. Routine cleaning and maintenance ensure the health, safety, and integrity of the toilet. The waste can be hazardous if not disposed of carefully and properly.  Therefore, waste management should be performed by a certified and regulated company for the best maintenance and safety of the toilets.

Maintain a sufficient supply of hygiene products.

Don’t leave your frequenters guessing!  Supply your units and help those in need fully supplied with resources of hygiene products. Handwashing stations, soap, paper towels, hand sanitizer, toilet paper, and disinfectant wipes are all fundamental in keeping portable toilets fully functioning. When your toilets are supplied and clear expectations are set, it is easier for those using it to fall in line and help with the basics.

Deodorize!

Cleaning portable toilets and keeping them supplied are important, but don’t forget that having products to control odors is also helpful.  Most professionals rely on products with the deepest blue colors in them to control and mask odors and sights. These products should contain 4 main components: biocides, dyes, fragrances, and surfactants. Just like you, showering and scrubbing are crucial but deodorant is key for the in-between times!

Be prepared for the weather.

Everyone knows that portable toilets get a bad rap for having foul odors!  This doesn’t have to be the case, though, if chemistry and some knowledge are involved in preparations! During the warmer seasons of the year, a portable toilet’s temperature can far exceed that of the outdoors. This is an excellent condition for growing bacteria. The right balance of chemicals can substantially reduce the unpleasant odors that are created. Likewise, in the extreme cold, the chemicals in the septic tank can freeze, creating unique and smelly challenges.  Adding a salty brine will reduce the freezing point and allow the chemicals to perform more effectively.

Portable toilets are a wonderful asset to an outdoor event.  But, let’s face it, they can provide either a positive or not-so-positive experience depending on their conditions.  As with most things in life, preparation is key!

When planning for an outdoor event, all the elements as well as traffic flow and the number of attendees should be carefully considered.  The weather conditions alone can have a huge impact on the cleanliness and functionality of your portable toilets, particularly during festivals and races or other athletic events when guests are coming and going through potentially muddy areas. Windy conditions can also cause your portable toilets to become unsafe.

Don’t become bogged down with the weight of these decisions! We at FenceLine Rentals Ltd. have some suggestions for keeping your portable toilets clean and fully functional! Let’s explore ways that you can be ready to create the most positive portable t­­­­­­­­­­oilet experience possible for your guests!

Management of your Portable Toilets

Hard surfaces and flat spaces, such as parking lots, provide stability and mess-free areas that can reduce mud from being tracked in and causing slippery and dirty conditions.  Additionally, it may be more possible to place portable toilets near a building or fence, which would provide a natural wind barrier and can prevent it from being blown over.

We realize that, while parking lots are ideal, they are not always convenient or available. If it is necessary to place portable toilets on the grass, gravel, or dirt area, there are a few other options as well.  Portable toilets may be covered to block rain and strong winds, staked for security, or may use a special step platform with a rubber mat to prevent mud from entering the toilet cubical by allowing it to drain through the mat.

Knowing the number of people needing to access as well as the duration of guests’ stay is critical to the success of the unit.  The typical rule for the accommodations is that, for 4 hours, you need 1 portable toilet per 50 individuals. If there is food and/ or alcohol at the event, this number may need to increase slightly.  Additionally, more portable toilets are needed if there are significantly more women than men and the total should increase by 10%-20%.

If the portable toilets are being used for a work site, a good number is one toilet per 10 workers.

No matter the location or duration, preparing the space and knowing the number of people you will be serving is vital to the ease and success at which your portable toilets may be accessed and used.

Essentials for Maintenance

Bad smells in a portable toilet are a direct indication of the lack of cleanliness, health, and safety. Depending on the usage, a portable toilet should be cleaned once a week. A unit should be completely pumped, and the hose should be all of the ways at the bottom and to the side in order to prevent debris from being sucked and clogged in the hose.

The waste can be hazardous if not disposed of carefully and properly.  Therefore, waste management should be performed by a certified and regulated company for the best maintenance and safety of the toilets.

Facts about Portable Toilets

  • Flushable toilets were invented in 1596 but were not used until 1851.  Portable toilets were not invented until the 1940s!
  • Portable toilets are actually safer than flushing toilets because flushing allows germs to become airborne, thus spreading diseases into the air.
