How Many Porta Potties Should You Rent?

February 19, 2021

When you are organizing an event, one thing that you want to make sure of is that you have everything that your guests are going to need. This means that it’s essential that you have an RSVP list. This gives you an accurate count for food, drinks, and other, more essential items, including how many porta potties you will need.

Whether you think about it or not, an outdoor event or party needs essential facilities, and without the right amount, you could be looking at a disaster in no time!

Choosing The Amount For Rental Events

When you’re having a party in a spot where bathrooms aren’t readily available, like someplace outside, you want to make sure that you have enough porta-potties for your guests to use when the need arises.

That’s why having a final count for your party is so essential. Do you rent one, two, three? Or maybe even more? You won’t know how many you will need until you have a final count.

Additionally, if you’re looking to add even more convenience, and have separate men’s and women’s facilities, be sure to break down your RSVP list even further!

Not Enough Porta-Potties = A Disaster Waiting to Happen

What can happen if you don’t have enough porta-potties? Think about your house. How many bathrooms do you have in your house? A lot of houses have at least two, but there are plenty that only has one bathroom. Now think about how crazy it is when multiple people need to use the bathroom at the same time. Now multiply that by the number of people coming to your event.

This can lead to:

  • Stains
  • Accidents
  • Overflows
  • Flooding
  • General discomfort

The last thing you want is for your guests to have a bad time. By anticipating all their needs, you can ensure a successful event.

Hand Cleaning Stations & Your People to Potty Ratio

There are a variety of factors that you want to consider when you are choosing how many porta-potties you need to have.

  • Will there be alcohol? It’s a good idea to add at least 20% more porta-potties
  • How many people will be there?
  • Will children be attending?
  • Will there be more men or more women?
  • Will there be many pregnant women?
  • Will there be many disabled people?
  • How long will the event last?

These things above are going to help you figure out how many porta-potties you’re going to need. If there are going to be a lot of children or women at the party, chances are that you will need more. Alcohol is also going to affect how often people use the porta-potties.

It’s also important that everyone is able to use at least one porta-potty comfortably and cleanliness is essential. You want to have at least one hand cleaning station for every four porta-potties. You also need to have at least one handicap accessible porta-potty.
