Renting a Sanitation Trailer

Consider renting restroom trailers if you want to provide your guests with a more luxurious restroom experience than standard portable toilets. They feature stalls with flushable toilets, sinks, running water, and air conditioning. For more information, click the link provided to proceed.

They are also ADA-compliant and feature exterior ramps, lower vanities, and grip bars for guests with limited mobility. These features can make your guests feel more comfortable and welcome at your event.

Sanitation trailers have become a popular option for events and settings where permanent restroom and shower facilities aren’t available. They feature a self-contained water system that can be connected to a spigot or garden hose to supply fresh, non-potable water to the restrooms or showers. These systems can also be pumped out as needed to ensure that the toilets and showers remain clean and sanitary.

If a standard restroom trailer is being used on a site that requires a pumper truck to access the waste tank, the spigot or hose should be located close enough to the trailer for easy access by the truck driver. Each restroom trailer holds a specific amount of waste, and when the tank is full, it must be pumped out.

Unlike traditional port-a-potties, which expose waste to the elements and rely on chemical solutions to deodorize or break down the waste, the VIP To Go restroom trailer is fully flushable with hot/cold running sinks. This makes the experience much more like using a bathroom in your home. The blue water in the restroom trailer isn’t dyed; it’s a chemical solution that neutralizes odors, keeps everything sanitary, and breaks down waste.

The water system in a restroom trailer is also equipped with a faucet for washing hands, and the bathroom will be supplied with soap, paper towels and toilet tissue as part of the rental fee. To help guests feel at home, we can even add a headmist time-released air freshener to each unit.

Once the restroom trailer is set up, checking the water and waste tanks regularly throughout your event is important. You should also sanitize all surfaces and plumbing fixtures with commercial-grade disinfectants. In addition, you should restock the paper towel dispensers and toilet paper rolls as needed.

Unlike traditional port-a-potties which expose the waste to the open air, restroom trailers have flushable toilets, hot/cold running water, sinks, and air conditioning. This design makes guests feel more like they’re using bathrooms at a club than the great outdoors. This upscale experience is a welcome upgrade for everyone attending your event. But with these luxury upgrades comes extra responsibilities that must be completed before, during and after the rental period.

One of the biggest tasks of renting a restroom trailer is making sure that all wastewater tanks are pumped out properly and in between rentals. This includes the grey and black water tanks as well as the freshwater tank. If not done correctly, this can lead to odors and unpleasantness within the toilets.

After the trailer has been set up and is leveled, blocked off, and hosed in, it’s time to start pumping out the waste tanks. This is referred to as “evacuating”. To do this, open the drain valves in each toilet’s basement and connect the pump vacuum hose to the dump valve on the front hitch end of the restroom trailer. Once evacuating is complete, close the dump valve, remove the hose and raise the trailer to its towing height.

Once the waste is removed from the restroom, it’s time to refill the tank with clean, fresh water. This will ensure that all toilets are ready for use again after the next pump out. Before refilling, the toilets should be wiped down and treated with blue deodorizing packets. A rate of 1 packet per stall for Regal trailers and 2 for Presidential trailers should be used.

Many things can go wrong with restroom trailers, but the most common problem is insufficient electricity to power the unit. These units require a lot of electricity to run the lights, water pumps, and air conditioning. If the restroom trailer has heaters for winter, those will also require a large amount of electrical power. To avoid problems, the bathroom trailer should be located as close to a utility hookup as possible.

If the restroom trailer is not parked near a power or water spigot, then it will need to be supplied with these services through a generator. This can add to the overall cost of the rental. To ensure that the restroom trailer has sufficient power to operate properly, it should be provided with two independent 20-amp electrical circuits. These should be dedicated to the restroom trailer and kept from other electrical appliances on-site.

It is important to have a vehicle that can tow the restroom trailer to its location. In some cases, the restroom trailer company will provide a tow truck with the rental. If you are renting the restroom trailer yourself, then you will need a vehicle that can pull it and a tow dolly.

Restroom trailers are a great option for events that do not have traditional restroom facilities available on-site. These facilities are also helpful for work sites that need to accommodate a lot of people at once. They provide guests with a comfortable place to use the toilet, showers, and sinks. In addition, they are a much safer and cleaner alternative to standard portable toilets. Unlike portable toilets, restroom trailers have plenty of room for guests to move around and help their children.

The plumbing in restroom trailers operates much like a home bathroom, using a conventional system that flushes waste into a holding tank and then refills with fresh water. A garden hose is connected to the city water line, typically below the mechanical room in the center of the trailer, and a standard 3/4″ spigot allows for easy access.

Most trailers have an on-board freshwater tank, and when the restroom is in use, the water pump is turned on and draws from this tank to supply toilets and hand washing sinks. The tanks require periodic draining to prevent build-up and to ensure that odors don’t become a problem.

If a freshwater tank needs to be drained, the first step is to turn off the water pump in the mechanical room and then remove the valve cover at the bottom of the freshwater tank to allow all pressurized water to flow out at once. Then, the anode rod must be removed, and the drain plugs should be closed. It’s also important to bypass the water heater, which can cause serious problems if antifreeze accidentally enters the system.

While most restroom trailers are used for events, there is a growing market for long-term rentals to construction job sites and contracting sites. These units are often more expensive than portable restrooms, but they come with a host of comfort and luxury features that can make a big difference in the satisfaction of employees and customers. For example, they can be equipped with heat and air conditioning, and have a more attractive interior design with tile flooring and granite countertops. They can even feature motion-activated faucets, which are more hygienic than regular faucets.

A restroom trailer is an ideal solution for a number of events, especially those where permanent toilet facilities aren’t available. A portable bathroom trailer provides guests with the same comfort and convenience as a traditional restroom, including flushing toilets, sinks, and air conditioning or heating systems depending on the chosen model. The self-contained units are fully equipped with water tanks, waste storage tanks, interior lighting, ventilation systems, and sanitizing amenities.

During the rental period, it’s important to maintain the restroom trailer’s cleanliness and functionality. Proper cleaning supplies and a maintenance schedule can help ensure that the unit stays fresh, pleasant, and clean for every guest who uses it. In addition, emptying the waste and grey water tanks regularly can prevent them from overflowing, leaving unpleasant odors behind.

Another essential maintenance step is winterizing the restroom trailer before storing it for the winter. This process involves draining the toilets, showers, and sinks, as well as adding antifreeze to all of the plumbing lines. This will prevent the lines from freezing and causing serious damage to your restroom trailer.

It’s also important to make sure that the restroom trailer is placed in a location that’s accessible for both our drivers and your guests. The ideal location is within a few miles of your venue, so it’s easy for our drivers to get there and back between rentals. In addition, it’s important to make sure that the site is level to allow for proper drainage.
