Portable Restrooms for the Quinault Nation

As a leading provider of portable restrooms, we have the privilege of working with a wide variety of organizations and businesses. All over the US, there are organizations of all kinds that exist to protect and preserve the many cultures that our country is home to. It’s truly one of the most amazing things about America - everywhere you go, you’ll meet different people with different backgrounds and a story about their families’ journey toward the American dream.We recently got to work with one of these amazing cultural groups. The Quinault Nation is a Native American group made of many tribes. Learn a little about them:“We are among the small number of Americans who can walk the same beaches, paddle the same waters, and hunt the same lands our ancestors did centuries ago. The Quinault Indian Nation (QIN) consists of the Quinault and Queets tribes and descendants of five other coastal tribes: Quileute, Hoh, Chehalis, Chinook, and Cowlitz .Our ancestors lived on a major physical and cultural dividing line. Beaches to the south are wide and sandy, while to the north, they are rugged and cliff-lined. We shared in the cultures of the people to the south as well as those to the north.Living in family groups in long houses up and down the river, we were sustained by the land and by trade with neighboring tribes. Superb salmon runs, abundant sea mammals, wildlife, and forests provided substantial material and spiritual wealth to our ancestors.A great store of knowledge about plants and their uses helped provide for our people. The western redcedar, the “tree of life,” provided logs for canoes, bark for clothing, split boards for houses, and more. We are the Canoe People , the people of the cedar tree.We remember our past while employing modern principles in a marriage that will bring hope and promise to our people now and in the future.”When the leaders of this native group came to us needing portable restrooms, we were happy to assist them. We introduced them to our new Affordable Advantage Series, a perfect solution for their needs.Portable Restrooms from the Affordable Advantage CollectionThe Affordable Advantage collection is a series designed and manufactured exclusively by Portable Restroom Trailers. We are excited to offer elegant, modern, and well-designed portable restrooms that save our clients money without sacrificing a great bathroom experience.Compact yet mighty, the Affordable Advantage portable restroom trailers come in two or three station floor plans. Each unit comes with a men’s and women’s suite, ensuring that everyone who uses this bathroom enjoys a peaceful and private experience.

In addition to the flushing toilet, the men’s suite also comes equipped with an auto-flush urinal.This collection of classic portable restrooms is being sold at the industry’s lowest price point, making it an affordable option for any business.

This portable restroom, measuring 16 feet with a 125 gallon fresh water tank and 500 gallon waste tank, is compact but mighty. It can service up to 350 visitors before requiring maintenance, which allows the group’s members to use the restroom comfortably and whenever they need it.Better Operations with the Smarter Restrooms AppAs we continue to partner with new businesses, we want to highlight the value of purchasing portable restrooms with the Smarter Restrooms App feature. Read ahead to discover three key upgrades that the app provides. Receive Timely NotificationsEach portable bathroom trailer unit comes with water saving flushable toilets, running water from sinks, and sometimes, showers and other amenities. This means that fresh water tank and waste tank levels require careful monitoring.No need to do this math on your own any longer! The Smarter Restroom App sends the fleet managers alert notifications when waste and freshwater tank levels are 2⁄3 full or empty, causing the unit to be out of service shortly. This is sure to boost productivity, allowing your team to have easy access to the information they need to keep restroom rentals operating smoothly. All-In-One Control SystemNothing is more important than the experience of your guests. We want to ensure that every user has a comfortable experience in a climate-controlled unit with all the amenities of a brick-and-mortar restroom. This is an easy achievement with the app’s system operations control feature.The app detects and controls shore power, interior climate temperatures, and up-to-date weather conditions, giving units winter protection from freezing temperatures and keeping things cool when hot. This ensures that restroom fleet managers stay updated from a remote location - they’ll know what changes are needed to the unit and when, which allows for a consistently pleasant restroom experience for guests.The app also allows for geometric locating, allowing managers to see the exact locations of all portable bathroom trailers at all times. Offsite Unit ManagementThe most tasking part of operating a portable bathroom trailer fleet is basic management. Making the trip back and forth to one or many units takes up valuable time, which can lower efficient customer service. The app addresses this issue as well.Managers have capabilities to remotely control lights, air conditioning, heating, water heaters, and trailer power. This means managers can operate more restroom trailers off-site, expand their operations, and provide superior service.Overall, the Smarter Restrooms App was developed to allow businesses who use or own restroom rentals to manage them more effectively. The app allows the management team to get more done in less time, makes fleet operations easier in general, and saves valuable employee time. Now, with the app, portable bathroom trailer renters and owners can ensure that restroom visitors have a top-notch experience with less manual labor. WE CAN HELP YOU WITH Portable Restrooms We are always happy to leave a customer satisfied.

For those who experience extreme weather conditions, we know how hard it can get to maintain your restroom trailer. Maintenance issues are bound to arise: what if your water freezes? What if the hose gets clogged by ice? How do you keep your restroom guests comfortable during use?These are all thoughts we’ve had when thinking about how to continue to improve our product. We want you to have the highest quality experience possible after your purchase. When it comes to cold weather, note these tips to ensure your restroom trailers stay functioning and keep that high quality for long periods of time. PROTECT YOUR WATER SUPPLYWrap heat tape around a ¾” garden hose. Use duct tape to hold it in place, about every 12 inches.Put foam tube insulation around the hose and heat tape. Leave the plugs and power lights uncovered.Run duct tape down the insulation, leaving the connecting ends, plugs and power lights uncovered. If you cover them, you will not be able to connect the water or power. Leave test lights and power lights uncovered (for testing and to be sure the hose remains working).CREATE A BOXPlace two 1500-watt electric heaters under the unit. Be sure you have sufficient power!Build a 2×2 or 2×4 wood frame to fit underneath each side of the unit. This is going to box the bottom of the outside of the unit.Fill any gaps with insulationCut ½” plywood to fit frame for each side. Be sure to consider stairs when cutting your wood. Stairs should be out and in place before measuring.Measure and cut out a 6”x6” square to cover the drain access. Attach this with hinges so you can access the drain when needed. This will protect drain valve from freezing.Eliminate gaps and holes on the tongue side of the unit with R-13 (or greater) insulation.Staple insulation inside the wood boxCut a piece of insulation in half and lay it on the ground where the box will be placed. This eliminates gaps between the wood and the ground.AFTER PLYWOOD IS ATTACHEDFill any small gaps on the top and bottom of the box with insulationStaple bubble wrap around the outside of the wood unit.
