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.

3 Things To Know About Renting A Porta Potty

Rose Austin

You've probably seen portable toilets at sporting events, festivals, and construction sites, but they have other uses as well. You can rent a porta potty for a pool party, wedding, office picnic, and any other occasion where people gather and need access to restrooms.

You may even need to rent one for your home when your sewer system is being replaced and your toilets will be out of service for several days. This is what you should know before renting a porta potty.

1. Several Styles Are Available

The basic potty that you commonly see is a popular choice since it's the most affordable and it contains everything you need. However, if the event you're hosting is upscale, you might want a more luxurious toilet that has more space and better amenities. Describe your event to the porta potty rental company and they can offer advice about the right style for your guests.

Their suggestion could be based on whether the potty needs lights and electricity, running water, and space for parents with children. You may also need help choosing the number of toilets to rent. One might be enough, but if your event will last for hours and you'll serve alcohol, you may need multiple toilets. The rental company has the experience needed to accurately gauge how many toilets you'll need and what kind they should be.

2. A Flat Area Is Needed For The Toilet

Make sure the area you want your toilet to be set up is appropriate. The ground has to be flat so the toilet won't tip over. Also, the service truck has to have easy access to the area so the toilet can be set up and then picked up when you're finished with it. When you call for your porta potty rental, you might want to ask how much clearance is needed if the truck will need to pass through a gate or between buildings.

3. The Toilets Will Be Serviced If Needed

If you just need your toilet for an event that lasts a day or two, it probably won't need to be serviced. The rental company makes sure the toilet is stocked with enough toilet paper and hand sanitizer to last for your rental period.

If you're renting a porta potty for the long term, the rental company will check it on an established schedule to empty the toilet and restock the supplies. You shouldn't need to worry about cleaning the toilet or providing supplies for it as this is included in the rental price.
