But How Many Portable Restrooms Do I Really Need?
When you’re planning an event, restroom considerations are always important. However, it’s not really a topic most people want to have a conversation about. We get it – talking about toilets isn’t anyone’s favorite conversation. It has to be done, though, especially when you’re planning an event with a large number of people. At some point, they’re all going to need a restroom, and they’re not going to want to have to wait in a long line. Restrooms can make or break someone’s event experience. You know – you’ve probably been to a concert or outdoor reception where you missed a good part of the event because you were standing in line in front of the portable toilets. It’s annoying, and not fun.
So we’re here to help you make your event a success and give you some answers so you can avoid having to talk about toilets with family and friends while you try to figure out the restroom needs of your event
How Many People and For How Long?
When determining how many portable restrooms you need, there are a few factors we recommend you consider: the number of people attending, the length of the event, and whether or not alcohol is being served.
For up to 100 guests, you should be set with three portable units, even for an event that lasts all day. For over 100 people, the number of units needed to maintain that crowd starts to climb higher and faster as the events lengthen. A wedding reception with 200 people is probably good with 4 units, though you might want to consider 5 if alcohol is being served. A concert that lasts 3 hours, has alcohol, and has 5,000 guests would probably need 35 portable units. Generally, you should increase the number of portable toilets needed by 13% if alcohol is being served.
