Spring is here, which means many events are moving outdoors for guests to enjoy pleasant weather while creating a new memory with family and friends.
Perhaps you’re planning one of these 25 most popular events in the Greater Houston area and you need to rent portable toilets for the outdoor events on your schedule.
It’s a good idea to consider how many portable restrooms you need for the event to maintain the comfort of guests in attendance.
Even the most seasoned event planner needs a refresher on how to determine the right number of portable toilets for outdoor events, especially if your recent events have taken place indoors.
How to Calculate the Ideal Number of Portable Restrooms
There are key variables to consider when determining your selection of portable toilets. Consider the most important variables:
- How many guests are you planning to serve?
- How long will the event last?
- Is there an indoors facility adjacent to the outdoors area?
- What is the size of the venue or area?
- Is the event mostly for men, women, or a mix?
- Do you have special requests, such as ADA compliant portable restrooms?
The answers to these questions will help you start the process of calculating the ideal number of portable toilets for the outdoors event. Then, you can narrow down to a reasonable estimate of how many portable toilets you will need.
