Plan A Successful Event
- How many attendees?
- How many hours is your event?
- How long is each attendee expected to stay?
- Are you serving food and beverage, beer or wine?
Having the right number of portable restrooms at your event is an important component in keeping your guests happy. Having a sufficient number will avoid having long lines and unsanitary conditions. Under normal conditions most people will use sanitation facilities once every four hours.
The number of units required in the chart below are based upon our standard Portable unit (approximately 200 uses per unit), at an event with a 50/50 mix of men & women and no extra service provided. If you choose our flushable portable units; you will need to order more toilets, due to a smaller capacity.
You should plan for more units if food and beverages (especially alcohol) are being served or you expect a higher proportion of female attendees, both of these factors cause a higher frequency of use in the restrooms. For larger functions divide your units up so there are twice as many for women as for men.
The following chart was designed to inform you of sanitary guidelines you should apply to your event. This chart assumes a maximum acceptable waiting line of 10 people, in order to prevent people from waiting in line; additional portable toilets may be required.
