Seasonal Packages Prepare Restroom Rental Fleets for Winter

The coldest season of the year is almost here! How prepared are you for the chilly weather and freezing temperatures? Can your restroom rental business weather the storm that is coming? As one of the leading providers of restroom rental solutions, we recognize that climate control plays a significant role in creating the ultimate restroom experience. Hence, we factor in seasonal changes when creating our wide range of add-ons and unique upgrade packages that are well-suited to different trailers. Over the years, we have worked with businesses interested in upgrading their restrooms during the cold seasons by providing them with befitting restroom solutions. Nonetheless, we look beyond the present, as we believe in building long-term partnerships with every company we service. As a fleet owner looking to run your restroom rentals business during the colder seasons, you need all the help you can get to handle what is coming. Below are some of our heating packages and upgrades that will guarantee the comfort of your restroom users during winter. THREE-SEASON HEAT PACKAGE The Three Season Heat Package is a perfect fit for businesses that plan to use their units during mild winters. This package is designed to withstand temperatures as low as -30 degrees. Therefore, it can handle little frost. It equips restroom rental fleet owners with a waste tank de-icing system that ensures contents do not freeze up even when there is potential exposure to temperatures below the freezing point. This assures you that your critical tank will remain in tip-top condition and continue to run without being affected by extreme temperatures. Additionally, restroom rental operators can be sure of their unit’s ability to provide a warm atmosphere for guests visiting the restroom, thanks to the presence of the 750-watt heater. This powerful heater is included in each suite to maintain a comfortable temperature for restroom users. The Three Season Heat Package also includes an upgrade to your entire unit. Upgrades like installing insulated walls and ceilings will help keep the cold air out while trapping the warm air. These changes will increase the heater's efficiency in keeping the climate favorable. Finally, the 2 - 30 amp marine-style power cord upgrade in this package works together with other add-ons and upgrades to ensure that your restroom rental works perfectly even at temperatures as low as - 30 degrees. With this upgrade, you can get your unit ready for winter in no time! FOUR-SEASON HEAT PACKAGE During extreme climates, more upgrades are needed to withstand harsh weather conditions. In this case, upgrades that are effective at a -30 degree minimum limit might be of little help, as it is beyond their capacity. Hence, the need for an ideal solution. This is why we have put together a package built to withstand temperatures as low as -20 degrees. Introducing the Four Season Heat Package for restroom rental fleet owners. This package includes most features in the Three Season Heat Package, such as the de-icing system, insulated walls, ceilings, and 2 - 30 amp marine-style power chord. However, it comes with a few game-changing features designed to handle the extreme cold season. Four Season Heat Package offers an improvement on the 750-watt heater, thanks to the installation of the 40k BTU ducted furnace. The furnace provides much-needed heat to the restrooms, making the internal temperature more comfortable for users. Furthermore, this package has two 30 lb LP tanks mounted at the front, secured by an insulated LP cover. In order to increase the efficiency of this system,  your restroom will be protected from the outside cold by creating a foil-wrapped exterior before adding the metal finish. We also included underfloor spray insulation. This addition working in tandem with the other features ensures that your unit is completely insulated from top to bottom, locking in the heat and kicking out the cold. WINTER-READY RESTROOM RENTAL OPTIONS These packages are customized to ensure that your restroom rental business remains in operation regardless of the extreme winter weather conditions. Therefore, you won’t have to lose sleep over how to make your customers comfortable when winter arrives. With these winter upgrades, you can effectively keep the heat in and the cold out in your restrooms and stay in business. Now, you can guarantee user comfort and satisfaction whenever you get restroom rental orders from construction companies, event planners, employers, or others during the cold season.

Winterize Your Portable Restroom Trailers

Here at Portable Restroom Trailers, we take pride in supplying premium products that cater to the specific needs of our customers. We put in the work to ensure that our products maintain their high standards and stand the test of time. However, sometimes there's little to nothing we can do during production to prepare for certain situations regardless of the precautions we put in place. One such situation is preparing our restroom trailers for the forthcoming winter storms. Over time, we will likely find a lasting solution. If you have experienced the harsh weather conditions that come with winter, you will agree that maintaining your portable restroom trailer is an uphill struggle. Winter-related occurrences begin to rear their ugly heads, such as water freezing, ice-clogged hoses, and a few others. Now, the million-dollar question is: How can you prevent these occurrences and ensure that you and your guests remain comfortable in your restroom trailer during winter? This is what runs through our minds when we think of ways to improve our products and help you enjoy the ultimate experience possible after purchasing our restroom trailers. In the meantime, since winter is around the corner, it is on us to ensure we fully equip you with the information you need to winterize your investment and weather the storm. Below are a few tested and trusted tips you can apply to keep your trailers functioning and maintain their high quality for a long time — during and beyond many winter seasons. Shield Your Water Supply Roll up heat tape around a ¾ inch garden hose. Hold it in place using a piece of duct tape. Place foam tube insulation around the heat tape and hose, leaving the power lights and plugs exposed. Run duct tape down, leaving the connecting ends, plugs, and power lights exposed. You'll be unable to connect the water or power if you cover them. Also, leave the power lights and test lights exposed (for testing and ensuring the hose continues working). Maintain Interior Temperatures Set two 1500-watt electric heaters below the unit. Ensure that you have adequate power before the placement. Construct a 2×2 or 2×4 wood frame that fits under each side of the unit. The aim is to box the bottom of the outside of the unit. Fill the small gaps (if there are any) with insulation. Cut ½ inch plywood that fits the frame of each side. Ensure you consider the stairs when cutting your wood. Also, the stairs should be out and in place before measuring for accuracy. Measure and cut out 6 × 6 inches to cover the drain access. Attach this with hinges so you can access the drain when required. This will prevent the valve from freezing. Get rid of gaps and holes below the tongue side of the unit with R-13 (or greater) insulation. Staple insulation inside the wood box. Cut the R-13 insulation in half and lay it on the ground where the box will be positioned. This removes any gap between the wood and the ground, protecting your portable restroom trailers from the cold. Fill the small gaps at the bottom and top with insulation. Staple bubble wrap around the outside of the wood unit. This closes off any gaps between the boards and on the corners, keeping the cold air out and heat in. Use electrical tape to mask exposed plug connections. Won't Be Using Your Portable Restroom Trailers When Winter Comes? If you won't use your unit this winter, that is fine. Nonetheless, you still need to keep it in top shape. To achieve this, you must prevent the use of water or power until you are ready to use the unit again by taking these three simple steps: Drain water from all the lines Add non-toxic RV “Pink Water System” antifreeze to the unit Unplug your unit Apply these easy but effective tips, and you can be sure that your portable restroom trailers will remain in tip-top condition for many winters to come. Reach out to us if you have any questions about maintaining the high quality of your trailers. We'll be glad to provide you with solutions.

Luxury Portable Bathrooms Elevate Outdoor Events

Over the years, we have built an impressive inventory of restroom trailers, including luxury portable bathrooms. We have designed a trailer for every occasion, from construction sites to black tie events and everything in between.Portable Luxury Bathroom Trailers OfferWhen our owner first broke into the sanitation business, she noticed that portable bathrooms provided a very basic experience. They only contained what was absolutely necessary, did not consider the effects of outdoor temperature, and had no additional amenities that made the experience comfortable for guests. With this in mind, our company was born and created a new kind of trailer. These ranged from basic, affordable trailers for things like work projects, mid-level luxury for a more upscale need, and luxury bathroom rentals for high-end needs.Our luxury portable bathrooms have truly changed the game when it comes to outdoor events. We know how important looks can be when it comes to an event. Design is the first thing attendees will see. No matter how much money is put into an event, visual aesthetics is one of the most important aspects. With a portable bathroom, you can guarantee that attendees have an experience like no other. Get rid of that hideous row of port-a-potties! Here are three ways our luxury portable bathrooms will upgrade any outdoor event you plan in 2022. DesignIn many cases, event design is the most important factor of an event. A good event has amazing visuals that are capable of creating ambiance and inspiring an emotional reaction from attendees. Whether it’s “WOW” or “AMAZING,” that initial visual impression can make or break an event.What doesn’t give us a WOW factor is that inevitable row of port-a-potties that all guests dread having to visit. Unfortunately, it is rare to come across a port-a-potty experience that is pleasant or memorable. Whether your event is a music festival or a black-tie outdoor dinner, the restroom experience is important. Why go through the effort of creating an atmosphere when it is immediately broken by looking at a port-a-potty, let alone entering one?This thought process is what inspired our luxury portable toilet rentals. We wanted to not only create a restroom exterior that fit the ambiance of an event but wanted to take that elegant experience inside of the bathroom. Our luxury bathrooms guarantee that every detail of your event design has been looked over and approved as an elevated experience, even when doing something as mundane as using the restroom.Luxury Restroom ExperienceLet’s get real. Think about the last event you attended as a guest. Over the course of the event, how many times did you need to use a restroom? Now, as an event planner, apply that number to your guests. Considering how often the average guest will have to come in contact with the restroom, wouldn’t you prefer to offer them the best experience possible? How will many visits to a port-a-potty affect the response to your event?We think that a temporary restroom solution should offer all the amenities of a home bathroom. We’ve equipped our luxury portable bathrooms with those little things we take for granted: hot water, heat and air conditioning strips, mirrors, paper towels dispensers, blow dryers, and even interior design. We know how important these little things are, and providing them for guests will make your event stand out that much more. ExperienceAs important as event design is, we’d say that guest experience is the number one ranker of success when it comes to events. It’s why you spend time on the design, the vendors, the entertainment, and the amenities. At the end of it all, you want your guests to leave with smiles on their faces and memories to share with friends and family.This is also number one on our list in the sanitation industry. We realized that no one had really given guest experience much thought when creating the first restroom trailers. We took a great concept and upgraded it by putting ourselves in the shoes of the guest. What makes a restroom experience pleasant? By adding in the amenities that aren’t quite necessary but are very nice to have, we created our luxury portable bathrooms. We know that we can provide a restroom experience that is unique in portable options. Guests will definitely notice the extra effort and will appreciate the upgrade, elevating your overall event experience. If the smallest of tasks is elegant, the atmosphere as a whole becomes more impressive.Get Your Luxury Portable BathroomsLuxury Portable Bathroom Rentals Think a luxury portable bathroom is exactly what you need to make your 2022 outdoor events a hit?
