Our company, Portable Restroom Trailers, has made it no secret that employee wellness and care is at the top of our priority list. We have learned over the years that a happy worker makes a successful company and have seen many of our partners succeed with the same mindset.

Companies like Google go the extra mile with napping pods, daily meals, and a campus that makes employees feel like they’re at their home away from home. Many have followed in this tech companies footsteps, providing company trips, team building fun, and so much more. Companies are starting to realize that there is value in giving their employees time away from the office to enjoy life outside of the workplace. Shining light on work-life balance has made many big companies more successful and increase employee retention.

At Portable Restroom Trailers, we not only value our own employees, but love partnering with companies who understand the value of taking care of their staff. It may not mean napping pods in the office, but little things like providing a comfortable work environment help with employee retention.

One company that has realized the value of employee care is Amports. They recently decided to upgrade their employee restrooms. We all take the bathroom for granted since it is a basic part of everyday life, but having access to an elegant restroom with all the amenities adds a little joy to a mundane task.

As construction began, they realized that they would need a restroom solution for employees. They didn’t want to sacrifice when it came to an elegant restroom environment and knew that a brick-and-mortar temporary solution was too costly. We were happy to assist them.

When one of their US locations needed portable restroom trailers, they knew who to call.

A SOLUTION WITH PORTABLE RESTROOM TRAILERS

As we began the conversation with Amports and realized their needs, we were quick to draw up a list of potential portable restroom trailers that would meet their needs. They needed a trailer that could handle a moderate amount of use, was elegant but not overly decorate, and that was easy and quick to set up and use right away.

Considering the volume of use and their need for a temporary restroom solution, we suggested several portable restroom trailers and settled on two 3 Station Portable Restroom Trailers, Comfort Series. These units, measuring 16 feet with a 125 gallon fresh water tank and 500 gallon waste tank, are compact but mighty. They can service up to 350 visitors each before requiring maintenance, which allows the company’s employees to use the restroom comfortably and whenever they need it.

To ensure safe entry, the porch to each of these portable restroom trailers’ entry doors are equipped with ample lighting for easy access no matter what time, day or night. The entry ways have two sturdy aluminum steps and railing for additional safety.

On this Comfort Series portable restroom trailer, guests will find three private bathrooms: two for women and one for men. All restrooms are designed with style in mind, showcasing earth tone interiors with modern flooring and color coordinated surfaces. They also include water saving flushable toilets, a sink vanity with a shatterproof mirror, hand dryer, and paper towels.

The men’s suites of these portable restroom trailers are versatile with a toilet and urinal option.To ensure the entire unit maintains a comfortable climate, air conditioning and heat strips are installed and able to adjust the temperature so that outdoor weather does not affect the interior’s experience. As an added measure, insulated walls and ceiling surround the entire unit, further aiding in keeping the interior temperature just right.

As we continue to partner with new businesses, we want to highlight the value of purchasing portable restroom trailers with the Smarter Restrooms App feature. Read ahead to discover three key upgrades that the app provides.

  1. Receive Timely Notifications

Each portable restroom 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 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 can ensure that restroom visitors have a top-notch experience with less manual labor.

WINTERIZE YOUR RESTROOM TRAILER

For those who experience extreme weather conditions, we know how hard it can get to maintain your portable restroom trailers. Maintenance issues are bound to arise: what if your water freezes? What if the hose gets clogged by ice? How do I keep my 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 keeps that high quality for long periods of time.

Protect Your Water Supply

  1. Wrap heat tape around a ¾” garden hose. Use duct tape to hold it in place, about every 12 inches.
  2. Put foam tube insulation around the hose and heat tape. Leave the plugs and power lights uncovered.
  3. 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 Box

  1. Place two 1500-watt electric heaters under the unit. Be sure you have sufficient power!
  2. 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.
  3. Fill any gaps with insulation
  4. Cut 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Eliminate gaps and holes on the tongue side of the unit with R-13 (or greater) insulation.
  7. Staple insulation inside the wood box
  8. Cut 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 Attached

  1. Fill any small gaps on the top and bottom of the box with insulation
  2. Staple bubble wrap around the outside of the wood unit. This closes of gaps and keeps cold air out and heat in.
  3. Use electrical tape to cover plug connections that will remain outside.

For Units Not Used in Winter

Eliminate the use of power and water until the unit is ready to be used again.

  1. Drain water from all the lines.
  2. Add non-toxic RV “Pink Water System” antifreeze
  3. Unplug
