If you are planning an event without access to indoor facilities, or if the numbers of indoor facilities are too small for your estimated attendance, you should consider renting portable toilets for your event.
In Edmonton, P-Cann offers porta potty rentals to both residential and commercial clients that are guaranteed to always be clean on arrival, and after your event we can handle the septic waste removal for you. Porta potties are the perfect public restroom for locations where permanent restrooms are impractical or unavailable so long as they can be placed on a level surface.
To maintain sanitation and cleanliness at your event, P-Cann porta potties contain a chemical toilet that is filled with disinfectant instead of water. They also come with hand sanitizer and, of course, toilet paper. We also offer handicap units with wheel-chair access, stand-alone hand-wash sinks with paper towels and soap and heated/insulated units for the colder times of the year – but just how many do you need?
Under normal conditions most people will use restrooms once every four hours. Adding in the consumption of food, liquids, and alcoholic beverages will increase usage by 30-40 percent. 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 along with how many people will be in attendance. Each unit provides for up to 200 uses.
Variables to consider include the amount of physical activity at the event – more active attendees are more apt to use a restroom; and the weather – rain 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. For any event that will include guests you do not know, you should be prepared to accommodate guests with physical disabilities in the form of accessible portable toilets.
In construction, or other job sites, the number of restrooms needed is determined by the number of employees on the job. As a general rule, you should have one portable potty for every 10 workers.
P-Cann is one of Edmonton’s longest-running, independently-owned portable toilet and site supply companies. In addition to providing portable toilets and washstands to your event or job site, we can also provide fencing to establish a secure area for your construction site or special event and portable trailers to create the perfect mobile office at an affordable cost. You can rent or purchase storage containers to keep your tools and equipment safe, and we have 10-yard to 40-yard roll-off bins to handle projects of all sizes. When you are done, or on a schedule for longer project, septic waste pumping will be done quickly with powerful vacuum truck units.
For over 20 years, the secret to our longevity has always been to listen to the needs of our customers.
