When planning a street fair, a concert in a park, or any other type of outdoor event, you will need to arrange for porta potty rentals in Southern California. Your event attendees will need access to toilets, and when the venues are outdoors there is no other way to provide this necessity. The number of toilets you need will depend on many factors, including:
The Number of Guests You Expect
The number of guests is the most critical factor to consider when you are deciding how many porta potty rentals you need. As a very general guideline, for a four-hour event you should plan on having one portable toilet rental for every 150 to 200 guests to avoid long lines. Thus, for example, if you are expecting five thousand people at your event, you should plan on renting between 25 and 30 porta potties.
The Duration of Your Event
The longer your event runs, the more toilets you need. For an 8-hour event, you'll need to rent more toilets than you would for a 4-hour event with the same number of guests. However, you don't need to double the amount of toilets. Instead, rent one toilet for every 125 to 150 guests. For an eight-hour event with five thousand attendees, this means you'll need between 30 and 40 portable toilets.
The Types of Beverages Served
If you will be serving alcoholic beverages at your event, then you will need to increase the number of toilets you rent. Consuming alcohol generally causes people to need to urinate more frequently. To figure out how much alcohol you can expect your guests to consume on average, consult data from similar past events, and increase your toilet-to-guest ratio again as needed.
You will also need to arrange for hand wash station rental so that guests can wash their hands after using the toilets.
