How Often Should Portable Restrooms Be Emptied This Summer?

Whether you are planning on renting a portable restroom for a family event, or are thinking
about buying one, learning how to maintain it is extremely crucial. And when it comes to
maintaining a portable restroom, knowing when and how to get it cleaned is one of the most
essential aspects.

Emptying Portable Restrooms Stalls

It is important to understand that there isn’t a specific timetable that determines when you
have to get your portable restrooms cleaned. There are various factors that determine how
often portable restrooms need to be emptied, including the purpose they are being used for,
the time frame they’ve been actively used for, and the number of people that are using them.
The weather also plays an important part, which a lot of people fail to take into account.

Emptying a Rented Portable Restroom

After a portable restroom is rented, the portable restroom company should come in at least
once a week to empty the tanks and ensure that the levels in the toilet. They also make sure
that there aren’t any unpleasant smells coming from it. Depending on the condition of the
portable restroom, they are also likely to pump the sewage and add the proper chemicals to
the bowl so it runs smoothly.

Emptying a Purchased Portable Restroom

On the other hand, if you purchase a portable restroom stall, you will have to be proactive
about scheduling the servicing of the portable restroom. The portable restroom company will
help you determine a suitable schedule for you according to your event and other
requirements. However, if you feel that the portable restroom is becoming too full or going
through extreme weather conditions before the next scheduled maintenance, it would be a
good idea to contact your company to pay a visit. Waiting too long can make your experience
with the portable restroom undesirable and make the cleanup more difficult for the company.

Ultimately, the portable restroom is a toilet filled with raw sewage. If you delay the cleanup, it
can cause unruly smells and allow bacteria to thrive, which can then spread disease. Therefore,
it is crucial to keep it clean at all times.
