2 Tips For Choosing A Location On Your Construction Site For Rented Portable Toilets

While planning out a new construction site, you may be at the point where you are sorting out the details for ensuring that your workers' needs are taken care of. As part of these details, you may be planning to rent portable toilets.

However, as you survey the site, you may be having difficulty deciding where to place them once the toilets arrive. If so, besides making sure that they are easily accessible to your workers, consider the following tips while you decide on a suitable location for the toilet rentals.

1. Select an Area Where the Ground Is Flat and Solid

One thing that you need to consider when choosing an area for the portable toilets is the ground on which they will rest. Especially if the construction requires digging up and grading the soil, certain spots may have loose dirt on inclines.

When choosing a spot, ideally, the ground should be undisturbed and solid. It should be well away from any digging areas so that the toilets are not pushed or start to sink because the soil is too loose to support their weight.

Also, the toilets should be placed on ground that is as flat as possible. If you place them on an incline, you run the risk of having the units slide, especially during heavy rains. 

2. Make Sure the Spot Is Accessible to the Service Trucks

Another thing that you must consider when choosing a spot for the rental units is their accessibility by the service trucks. As part of your rental service, someone will be coming out at an agreed-upon interval to clean the toilets and restock them with such items as toilet paper.

Because of this, you need to make sure that you leave enough room for the service trucks to be able to drive up and park right next to the restrooms. Close proximity allows them to pump out the toilets while refilling with fresh water. If the units are not accessible, they will not be able to clean them properly.

Selecting an ideal spot for the toilet rentals can help keep the units stable and secure while also making them accessible to the service trucks so that the toilets can be cleaned and maintained more easily. Speak with a representative with the portable toilet rental service for any other placement requirements as well as receive guidance on where to place the units once they arrive.
