As 2019 continues to go by, thoughts of New Year’s Resolutions may have begun to slip away from our priority list. The gym is no longer as crowded as it was in January and that weekly routine you’ve been trying to stick to may be slipping through the cracks. Experts say that it’s around this time of year that most people forget about those resolutions and slip back into old habits.

This is your reminder to get back on track! Slowly incorporate that new routine back into your week, start reorganizing the house, get back to the gym, and do whatever you promised yourself you’d do. We believe in you!

For those who had a fitness goal, perhaps the gym isn’t for you. Think back to your childhood. Kids aren’t lifting weights at the gym to stay in shape. They’re playing the sports they love. Perhaps this is a solution for adults as well.

The Birmingham Football Club is one of those organizations that provides a sporting activity for adults. This team conditions together, practices, and plays games against other club teams. They get the exercise they need to stay in shape the fun way. They recently had a need for a shower trailer rental, and we were more than happy to assist.

Here was the problem they faced: the club spends hours on the field getting in shape and ready for their scrimmages and games. At the end of these practices, they need a way to get refreshed. Showers are provided, but not quite enough to service the entire football team. We knew a shower trailer rental could help.

A SHOWER TRAILER RENTAL SOLUTION

For Birmingham Football Club, ensuring that their players are happy, healthy, and have access to the amenities they need is top priority. They realized that players needed more showers than were available and needed a quick and easy solution. A brick and mortar expansion was too costly, and not really necessary considering the length of their football season. They realized that a shower trailer rental was the perfect solution for their long term temporary need, and that’s when we got the call.

As they described their need for a shower trailer rental that would service a moderate to high volume of users, we came up with a list of solutions for them. After reviewing the choices we had to offer, they chose the 8 Station Shower Trailer Rental, Classic Series.

The Classic Series is compact yet comfortable environment measuring 24 feet. The clean, fresh exterior and aluminum steps and rails greet guests and ensure that they have safe and easy access. Each entry way is fitted with ample lighting for additional safety upon entering, no matter what time day or night.

The interior is fitted with non-skid rubber flooring to ensure that guests can shower safely without worrying about slipping. Eight private showers await each visitor, and curtains ensure plenty of privacy during use. Sinks and mirrors are also provided in this shower trailer rental for other bathroom needs like brushing teeth and fixing hair.

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 Classic Series Shower Trailer Rental is equipped for high volume use, easily providing each user with a positive shower experience.

Given the shower trailer rental’s easy portability, we were able to transport it to the Birmingham Football Club’s location quickly and efficiently. The shower trailer rental was quickly installed and ready for use. The rental is being used for six months during the club’s active season, allowing them to save money long term while still providing an upscale solution for their players.

THE SMARTER RESTROOMS APP

In February of 2017, we launched the Smarter Restrooms App, and this tool has helped our many partners to more effectively run their shower trailer business. The app, which can be downloaded and used on any smartphone, tablet, or laptop, makes the overall management of restroom fleets convenient and more time effective.

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

  1. Receive Timely Notifications

Each shower trailer rental 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 your shower trailer 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 restroom or shower trailer rental 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 rent or own a shower trailer 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, you can ensure that restroom visitors have a top-notch experience with less manual labor. We’ve made it easy so that your business can provide the best service possible easily, allowing you to grow and prosper.

WINTERIZE YOUR SHOWER TRAILER

For those who experience extreme weather conditions, we know how hard it can get to maintain your shower trailer rental. 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 shower trailer stays 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
