Summer is now right around the corner, and with nicer weather comes the inevitable travel plans. Whether you plan to venture to a neighboring town or state, or venture across the ocean to explore a new country, travel plans are always something to look forward to.

What makes a town or city memorable? What makes us want to add it to our must-see list? There are many things that inspire us to venture, like history, culture, food, and interesting people. What also leaves a lasting impression on our opinion of a new place, occasionally just on a subconscious level, is cleanliness. Most iconic cities make it a point to keep their streets clean, and when we visit those places that don’t, there is a level of negativity left on our impression. One of the best ways for cities to solve their dirty problem is by providing public restrooms with a portable bathroom trailer rental.

Why would restrooms make a difference, you ask? Public restrooms encourage people to relieve themselves in a more humane way, especially those who are homeless or displaced. We know, it’s not a glamorous topic, but it is an important one. Read below to see why providing public restrooms became a priority for the city of Seat Pleasant. Owning a portable restroom trailer has changed how their city hosts events and community gatherings.

A CITY READY TO WELCOME TOURISM

 

Like most small cities in America, Seat Pleasant is compact but mighty. 4,721 residents strong, the city’s motto is, “A Smart City of Excellence.” They were proud to be named the world’s first authentic small smart city in 2017. Here’s why Seat Pleasant is proud to be a smart city:

“There isn’t a single, or universally acknowledged definition of a Smart City. However, at Seat Pleasant, we believe Smart Cities are the future of innovation because Smart Cities have the potential to solve fundamental human problems and challenges including social injustice, inequality, poverty, and sustainability to name a few.

We believe Connectivity across all domains is the key to becoming an authentic Smart City. Connectivity is accomplished by utilizing a “shared services hub” (i.e an operational Smart City platform) that aggregates data from disparate sources and Internet of Things (IoT) sensors so that data is shared effortlessly across the entire City, and the insights from that data are leveraged for empirical, data-driven decision making. As a result, a true Smart City will facilitate collaboration both internally amongst governmental departments and externally with residents and businesses.

In addition, Smart Cities are about achieving a more perfect union, where City Governments and City Residents are Connected. A City whose Government, Businesses, and Residents are in sync is one best equipped to deliver the services people need and want.”

A smart city like Seat Pleasant knew that in order to continue to elevate the experience of their residents and visitors, offering an upscale restroom option at community gatherings and events was an absolute must. We were excited when they came to us for a portable restroom trailer.

A PORTABLE RESTROOM TRAILER SOLUTION

As city and event planners got together and thought about a restroom solution, they reached out to us for some options. We were more than happy to assist.

They needed a portable restroom trailer that could handle a large volume of users. The restroom needed to be an obvious upgrade from porta potties, so elegance and design was important. As we discussed these needs with the city, we realized that the 10 Station Calypso Series was the ideal fit for them.

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 no matter what time, day or night, that the restrooms are used.

Each of our portable restroom trailer options has a scratch proof and dent proof layer protecting the exterior to ensure that top quality and presentation is maintained. This protects the trailer from serious damage and ensures that it elevates the event experience. We aim to make sure that our units add to the elegance and ambiance no matter how they are used.

As visitors enter the portable restroom trailer, they find a clean design and comfortable interior. 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.

This portable bathroom trailer also comes with the option to add on the Smarter Restrooms App. As we continue to partner with new businesses, we want to highlight the value of renting and purchasing portable bathroom trailer units 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 portable bathroom trailer units 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 restroom 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 can ensure that restroom visitors have a top-notch experience with less manual labor.

Overall, this portable restroom trailer option was an ideal solution for the city of Seat Pleasan. Of the many portable restroom trailer units that we showed them, they favored this trailer because it was efficient, equipped with all the amenities of a home restroom, and designed with thought. They knew that this restroom solution would be long-term and didn’t want to sacrifice quality to save money.

Luckily, with our portable restroom trailer units, we were able to supply a perfect restroom solution that was affordable and captured the ambiance that the city 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 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 the city of Seat Pleasant, the perfect fit that balances the two comes with an elegant portable restroom trailer option.
