What to Consider When Renting Construction Porta Johns

You have a lot of pieces to pull together when it comes to your construction project, the least of all is worry about where your workers will be able to do their business. Before you rent just any porta potty and call it a day though, consider these three important things:

Jobsite Type

Whether it’s roadside construction, new home construction, high-rise construction, or anything in between, you need a portable restroom solution that will serve your specific needs. Most companies will just rent standard portable toilet units, but there are a lot of options to serve the specific needs of your jobsite. Sure, a regular porta potty has a non-slip floor, mounted hand sanitizer pump, and hefty 65-gallon tank that’s useful for a variety of jobsites, but there are other options as well. For instance, ADA compliant units have much more spacious interiors for jobsites where workers will be wearing bulkier protective gear and need more room to move around. Then there are restroom trailers, which provide climate controlled usage for workers that are doing their jobs in very high or very low temperatures. These trailers also provide full sinks with hot and cold water for more sanitary usage in places where having clean hands is absolutely a necessity. Furthermore, they can be used more efficiently because each trailer has multiple stalls for simultaneous usage by workers.

Placement Location

Depending on where you need portable toilets located, you may have to rent a specific model to best serve your needs. Portable toilets with crane racks allow bathrooms to be lofted to higher floors for more efficient use by people that are working off the ground. These are specifically designed for safe lifting and placement on building construction sites. Roller units are another option for high rise jobs because they can be transported in construction elevators and moved to wherever work is being performed. Both of these specialized construction porta potties are offered by portable toilet suppliers to fit the unique needs of construction areas.

Necessary Capacity

If you have a lot of people to plan for, you might need to rent extra units. Alternatively though, you could rent holding tanks for use with your existing units to increase capacity. Each tank holds 250 gallons of refuse, allowing you to get extra use out of each unit between servicing. This is particularly helpful for jobsites that are more remote, making them harder to service.
