Children across the nation are officially back in school, gaining the early education, social skills, and tools that they’ll need to succeed as successful adults. We must all take time to visit our children’s teachers and thank them for their hard work, for the work of an educator is some of the most important in our country. Ensuring teachers are equipped and supported throughout the school year should be high priority on everyone’s list. 

We often get to work on school campuses by providing portable bathrooms for rent. Many schools must follow strict budgets to ensure each student has what they need, and this includes facilities management. For many schools, restroom access is high priority. Young students are still learning to listen to their bodies, and restroom use is often urgent. There is also such a large volume of students on campuses that large bathrooms are a necessity.

It is also crucial to have a restroom option for the adults on campus. Children tend to be, in all honesty, messy! As adults, we prefer a tidier restroom experience, and it also provides an added safety measure to have the adult restroom separate from the kids. Providing a restroom option on campus for adults definitely comes with its perks.

Many times, brick-and-mortar restrooms can’t handle the large volume of students, and a restroom expansion is simply out of the budget. That’s why we are always willing to work with schools and their budgets to provide portable bathrooms for rent.

We recently visited Richmond School District in Virginia to help them solve their restroom problems. Here’s how we worked together to provide ideal portable bathrooms for rent for their campuses.

A DISTRICT WITH A PURPOSE

Like many teachers and leaders in the education industry, Richmond School District aims to provide students with an education that sets them up for a successful future. This district has implemented many programs to ensure that this happens - read a little bit of their story:

“Richmond Public Schools will prepare our students to become successful, contributing members of society through innovative and compassionate learning communities.

The district serves nearly 24,000 students, representing the region’s diverse socioeconomic mix. Richmond Public Schools (RPS) is comprised of 25 elementary schools, including one charter school, seven middle schools, five comprehensive high schools and three specialty schools. U. S. News and World Report ranked Richmond Community and Open high schools among the state’s top public high schools. And, Franklin Military Academy stands as the nation’s first public military school. 

The district also operates two regional Governor’s School programs. Gifted and talented students are served by SPACE (Special Program for Academic and Creative Excellence) at the elementary and middle school levels, and by advanced placement and dual enrollment courses at the high school level. Academically advanced students may also earn the prestigious International Baccalaureate (IB) diploma at Thomas Jefferson High School or apply to attend the Maggie L. Walker Governor’s School for Government and International Studies and the Appomattox Governor’s School for the Arts and Technology.”

Their list of offerings and programs is quite impressive. When they reached out to us and shared their need for restroom solutions on some of their bustling campuses, we were excited to help.

A RESTROOM SOLUTION WITH PORTABLE BATHROOMS FOR RENT

Every time we sit down with a new client, we review their needs and find the ideal match for them. For Richmond School District, they needed portable bathrooms for rent that could handle a large volume of users, had high-quality durability, and was within their budget. After carefully reviewing options, we agreed on the 10 Station Calypso Series.

This 24-foot portable restroom trailer is equipped for high-volume use with an 865-gallon waste tank and 200-gallon fresh water tank. Visitors are greeted by a clean and fresh exterior that is built with aluminum steps and handrails for safe and convenient access. The entryway to each suite has ample lighting above the door for added safety and easy entry during anytime, day or night.

As visitors enter this portable bathroom for rent, they find an interior design scheme that is simple yet elegant. It makes this restroom choice ideal for both students and teachers, as well as visiting parents. The men’s suite includes 2 privacy stalls and 3 urinals, while the women’s suite includes 5 privacy stalls.

Each stall of the women’s suite has a flushable china toilet that flushes with the step of a pedal. The suite is equipped with a double sink vanity, shatterproof mirror, and a paper towel dispenser for a full and upscale restroom experience. The men’s suite also has flushable toilets in each privacy stall, and urinals are given some added privacy with walls separating each one. Two sink vanities and shatterproof mirrors finish out the men’s suite, with a paper towel dispenser for hand drying.

The entire unit also features air conditioning and heat strips in order to maintain a comfortable interior temperature no matter what outside weather may be like. These strips can easily increase or decrease the temperature of the unit when necessary, ensuring that guests have a comfortable experience.

As we continue to partner with new businesses, we want to highlight the value of renting and purchasing restroom trailers with the Smarter Restrooms App feature. This app has changed the game when it comes to restroom fleet management, making the job that much easier. Read ahead to discover three key upgrades that the app provides.

  1. Receive Timely Notifications

Each of our restroom trailers 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 will 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 portable restroom trailers operating smoothly.

  1. All-In-One Control System

Nothing 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 restroom trailers at all times.

  1. Offsite Unit Management

The 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 portable restroom trailers 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 restroom trailers owners and renters can ensure that restroom visitors have a top-notch experience with less manual labor. 

The 10 Station Calypso Series was an ideal solution for Richmond School District. Of the many portable bathrooms for rent that we were able to show them, they favored this trailer because it was efficient, equipped with all the amenities of a home restroom, capable of easily handling a large volume of users, and designed with thought. They knew that this restroom solution would be long-term and didn’t want to sacrifice quality to save money, even though staying within budget was a priority. 

Luckily, with a portable bathrooms for rent, we were able to supply a perfect restroom solution that was affordable and captured the ambiance that their company desired. As we look forward to helping other companies and organizations in the future, we want to spread the word that anyone looking for a short- or long-term restroom option can find a solution with us. No need to sacrifice quality, and no need to break the bank on another high-end option. Like with Richmond School District, the perfect fit that balances the two comes with portable bathrooms for rent.

We were happy to introduce the school district to a style of restroom trailers that they didn’t know existed. Many businesses still think that porta potties are the only portable bathroom options available, and our company is eager to change that opinion. We know that using the restroom is an inevitable part of the day, and all businesses want to provide both staff and guests with an option that fits their brand. Using portable bathrooms for rent for any of your temporary restroom needs guarantees that the elegance and ambiance throughout your establishment is upheld in the restroom as well.
