Did you know the portable toilet industry began in the 1940s in the shipyards of Long Beach, California? At the time, laborers working on the ships had to travel back to the dock each time they had to use the restroom. A shipbuilder who recognized this wasted effort asked the company in charge of the permanent toilets on the docks if they could make a toilet which could be temporarily put on the ship closer to the workers. Out of necessity, the portable toilet was born! Since its inception, the portable toilet has spread to the construction industry to revolutionize restroom use as we know it today on nearly every job site. For those in charge of portable toilets on the construction site, there are plenty of things to consider. First, the number of restrooms needed on a construction site is determined by the number of employees on the job. As a general rule, you should have one portable potty for every 10 workers. For every 10 additional workers, add another toilet. If there are 20 people on the construction site, there should be two port-a-potties. If there are 40 workers on site, there should be four portable toilets. For more on portable toilet rentals, refer to the infographic. FULL POST

Ever since the portable toilet was invented in the 1940s, using restrooms for remote sites and events has changed forever. What started as a necessity for construction sites has become a staple at large events around the world. If planning an event, it is imperative to know how many port-a-potties you will need to accommodate your guests. Under normal conditions, most people will use sanitation facilities once every four hours. Add the consumption of food, drink, and alcohol and this will increase the need for portable toilets by 30-40%. As a rule of thumb, the number of restrooms needed at an event is usually determined by the total number of hours the event will be open coupled with how many people will be in attendance. Variables to also consider include the amount of physical activity present at the event itself and what the weather will be like. The more active attendees are, the more apt they will be to use a restroom. Rainy weather has been found to trigger people to use the bathroom more frequently not only from a psychological standpoint, but out of a desire to dry off and freshen up. The chart below can help determine how many portable toilets you may need for your next event. By measuring the hours of the event and the number of people in attendance, this will greatly assist in ensuring you are not short a portable toilet when you need one.
