Factors to Consider When Selecting Portable Toilets

Tommy Franklin

You need to hire portable toilets for the workers who will be renovating your home in order to reduce the inconveniences that may be caused when those contractors have to use the facilities inside your home. This article discusses some of the things you should have in mind as you select portable toilets for this purpose.

The Dimensions

Portable toilets come in varying dimensions. You should select toilets that are wide and high enough to offer an adequate level of comfort for the people who will be using them. For instance, a portable toilet that isn't high enough may cause discomfort that may reduce the productivity of the people working on your project. If possible, try using the toilet so that you can confirm its comfort level before you pay for it. 

Waste Tank Capacity

You should also compare different portable toilets in terms of the capacity of their waste tanks. Hire a toilet with the largest waste tank available. This will save you from the costs associated with having to empty that tank frequently. For instance, a 10-litre waste tank will need to be emptied more frequently than a 20-litre tank. This will increase your expenditure on disposal fees and fuel to drive the tank to an approved disposal location.

Waste Level Indicator

Can you imagine the inconveniences of having to open the lid on the waste tank regularly in order to assess how full that tank is? That is what you may have to go through if you rent a portable toilet that doesn't have a waste level indicator or observation window. Only consider portable toilets that have a waste level indicator. This will make it easier for you to know when it is time to empty the tank. Some portable toilets also feature an alarm system that can warn you when the tank is about to fill up.

Additional Features

Portable toilet design has come a long way since the pioneer models hit the market. It is now possible to find portable toilets with several extra features, such as toilet paper holders and dispensers of hand disinfectants. Explore the range of extra features available so that you can select the toilets with the features that are most suited to the work being done on your property. For instance, a portable toilet with a shower area is ideal if workers will be painting your home.

Remember to find the most appropriate location for the portable toilets that you hire. For instance, avoid putting the toilets where workers will have to spend more than 10 minutes moving to and from the portable toilets because that wasted time will add up.
