    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

    How many units are needed for my event? Proper planning is the key to successful events and mass gatherings. Studies indicate that adequate restroom facilities have a significant impact on attendance and profitability. Since visual effects make the greatest impression on attendees, special considerations should be given to quantity, placement, and service. Because users of the portable restroom facilities determine the quality of service based on real and perceived conditions, the specials event coordinator will want nice, clean, high-quality units that are in good repair with vent screens and door locks. Proper service will maintain the condition of the units with regards to the level of waste, the availability of tissue and clean interior. Even if the event is not large enough for pumping service, general housecleaning can make a significant impact on the event.
