Learning About Septic Services

Welcome to my site. My name is Jorge. The septic company sent a notice to my home recently about pumping out the tank. After living in my home for a few years, it was time to service the septic tank to keep it in good condition for years afterward. I watched in awe as the septic truck cleared the tank and restored the function of the system. I will use this site to discuss the process of servicing the septic tank. I will also talk about repairs commonly performed on the septic components. I hope you will visit often to learn more.

Don't Make These Mistakes When Renting Portable Restrooms

Rose Austin

Renting portable restrooms seems like it would be pretty straightforward. And in most regards, it really is. You call a rental company, make plans, wait for the restrooms to be dropped off, and pay for them. The rental company comes to pick the restrooms up again after you're finished with them. Keep the following tips in mind, and things will likely go off without a hitch.

Mistake: Confusing portable restrooms with porta potties

The terms "portable restroom" and "porta potty" are similar, but they actually refer to different things. A porta potty, also known as a portable toilet, is just a toilet in a plastic enclosure. Most do not flush or have any running water, although some models may have a pumpable handwashing station. A portable restroom, on the other hand, is like an actual bathroom that can be dropped off at your location. It will likely have several toilets, electricity, sinks, running water, and so forth. Make sure you're clear on whether you truly want a portable restroom or portable toilets before you call to place your rental order.

Mistake: Not reserving enough restrooms

You usually pay a certain rental price per restroom, so it makes sense that you would not want to rent more restrooms than you really need. But failing to rent enough restrooms can be a mistake, too. Without enough restrooms, your guests may be waiting in line for far too long. This could cause them to miss whatever event is going on, and it will almost certainly make them frustrated. The best way to approach this is to tell the rental company how many people you're expecting and ask them to recommend the right number of bathrooms to suit your needs. They'll know how many you should rent based on past customers' experiences.

Mistake: Not making room for the restroom trailer

When the rental company arrives to drop off your restrooms, they will need to have a wide path to access. Make sure you clear enough space for them to get through. If you're not sure whether there will be enough room in a certain area or not, you can call the company and ask how much clearance they need. Measure the space you have, see how it compares, and move things as needed. You don't want to be left hustling to move things when the rental company is already there.

Avoid these mistakes, and you should have a smoother experience renting restrooms. For more information about portable restroom rentals, reach out to a local service.
