Portable Showers for Saint Francis Challenge
PRT has always been a company that believes in giving back to the community. Over the years, we have had the privilege of partnering with a variety of organizations that have a huge impact on their neighborhoods, towns, cities, and states. When we rent or sell a restroom trailer or portable showers, it is not just about business - it is about supporting those who have an idea that can contribute to the greater good.
We recently partnered with Saint Francis Challenge, an organization that has made momentous progress in the fight against homelessness. Read a little bit about their mission:
“Since SFHC was founded in 2015, we have worked towards our mission to end the crisis conditions of street homelessness by:
- Providing direct services at encampments (including portapotties, trash removal, mobile sleeping cabins, linkage to service providers, etc.)
- Organizing with local, regional, and state-level stakeholders to develop actionable solutions, including currently/formerly unsheltered residents, impacted neighbors, service/advocacy organizations, and government officials; and
- Developing and piloting Safe Organized Spaces for activating underutilized public/private land with community-integrated transitional villages.
- Advocating for SOS transitional village pilots in San Francisco and throughout California;
- Updating the SOS policy and operations toolkit for California cities experiencing a shelter shortage crisis
- Seeking partnerships with funders to fund SOS pilots in San Francisco and throughout California;
- Building upon our local, statewide, & national network of advocates, service providers, policy experts, and government officials;
- Gathering signatures and conducting outreach for the SOS petition. “
When the organization reached out to us needing portable showers for a local encampment, we were eager to assist them as quickly as we could.
Progress with Portable Showers
This organization needed portable showers that were very budget friendly, private, and easy to use. The unit would service small to medium crowds and provide showers for those who need them most. Many of us go through our daily routine without appreciating the true privilege of access to showers, so when thinking about a solution for St. Francis Challenge, we wanted something that would make this community feel cared for.
After some consideration, we suggested the 3 Station Shower Trailer, Affordable Advantage Series. The Affordable Advantage Series was designed to boast modern, upscale design without breaking the bank. We are excited to offer elegant, modern, and well-designed portable restrooms that save our clients money without sacrificing a great bathroom experience.
The clean, fresh exterior and aluminum steps and rails greet guests and ensure that they have safe and easy access. The interior is fitted with non-skid rubber flooring to ensure that guests can shower safely without worrying about slipping. The unit is equipped with three private suites, each housing a shower and sink for individual use.
The entire unit is insulated to ensure that the interior temperature stays comfortable despite outside weather conditions. It also comes with air conditioning and heat strips, which help keep the temperature that much more comfortable. With a tankless hot water system and showers that are very user friendly, the Affordable Advantage portable showers are equipped for low to medium volume use, easily providing each user with a positive shower experience.
This collection of classic restroom trailers and portable showers is being sold at the industry’s lowest price point, making it an affordable option for any business or organization. No need to stress about budget or sacrificing a positive restroom experience. Shop this limited collection today!
Better Operations with the Smarter Restrooms App
As we continue to partner with new businesses, we want to highlight the value of purchasing portable showers and restrooms with the Smarter Restrooms App feature. Read ahead to discover three key upgrades that the app provides.
- 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 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 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 bathroom trailers at all times.
- 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 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.

The Restroom Trailers Cleaning Process
Many companies are becoming more and more interested in restroom trailers and portable showers as rentals at this time. With our inventory going in and out of the warehouse constantly, we want to ensure that the portable bathrooms we send out are clean and safe for use.
We recently partnered with Green Home Solutions, an EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) registered cleaning service that specializes in bacteria disinfection. Learn about their company and cleaning process and order your restroom rentals with the confidence that the portable bathrooms coming your way are sanitized and ready for immediate use.
The Green Home Solutions Process
The Green Home Solutions product, called Oceanic, killed 570 pathogen in under 10 minutes when tested by the EPA. It has successfully treated COVID-19 as well and is now the product used to disinfect our portable bathrooms.
We are proud to partner with a small, locally-owned business that prioritizes effective disinfection without harsh chemicals. Learn a little bit about them:
“Russ Weldon founded Green Home Solutions and serves as the Chief Cultural Officer and Visionary of our indoor air quality company. With an entrepreneurial drive, Russ has been starting successful businesses since his teens. After selling his 450-store franchise in 2012, he was looking for a new opportunity. Green Home Solutions grew out of his desire to provide products that keep homes free from mold.
As Green Home Solutions grew, he realized this business was more than just a way to help other entrepreneurs achieve their dream of business ownership. It gave him a chance to have a positive impact on the planet today and for generations to come.
At Green Home Solutions, we don’t believe that fixing these problems means you have to introduce harsh chemicals into the environment or to your family, pets and home. We don’t use harsh chemicals. The health and safety of your family is always our goal. The products we use in our services are selected with that in mind.”
When we hired Green Home Solutions, they told us about their cleaning process. This is what you can expect every portable bathroom in our rental inventory to go through before shipping.
- The Green Home team sets up personal protection equipment (PPE) and cleaning supplies
- The team puts on PPE prior to entering the portable bathrooms, including full mask, suit and gloves.
- Confirm that all people are out of the service area and ensure that no one enters while the trailer is being serviced.
- Once everyone is out of the service area, the team begins to wipe down all touch surfaces & high contact surfaces with GHS “Beyond Green All-Purpose Cleaner” including door, doorknobs, handles, seats, and sinks.
- Remove, contain and dispose of all cleaning materials (rags, towels, cloths).
- Spray all surfaces and contents with Oceanic via the Fogmaster sprayer.
- Allow a minimum of 2 hours after treatment prior to re-entry. Note – reentry time can be reduced with ventilation of the area after required dwell time.
This hospital-grade technique ensures that all bacteria are removed from the restroom trailers. After finishing the process, the rentals are ready for our clients. Rest assured, any portable bathrooms coming from us will be processed by the Green Home Solutions team and will not contribute to the spread of COVID-19.
Sanitized Restroom Trailers and Portable Showers
With all of our restroom trailers going through this sanitation process, we are continuing business as usual to make sure that all essential businesses have the restrooms they need. We confirm that we do not get essential workers sick thanks to Green Home Solutions and we will continue to partner with them throughout the foreseeable future.
