Here at XRefer we know you've probably got a lot of questions to have answered before renting a portable restroom. Here are some answers to a few of the must popular questions customers ask when renting a toilet in San Francisco:

How Many Portable Toilets Do I Need?

Short answer: 1 portable toilet serves up to 10 people for an entire day, or up to 50 people for a 1 hour event.

However, in reality this is the most important and difficult question you need to answer. It is not straightforward because you cannot calculate the number of porta potties needed based on a simple calculation, i.e. (# of people * # of hours). For example, if you need construction porta potties in San Francisco, you need to determine the average hourly number of workers and the average number of shifts per day instead. It helps to look at events and construction separately:

Calculations for construction portable toilets in San Francisco:

  1. Multiply average number of workers with average number of daily shifts and apply ratio of 1 porta potty to 10 workers. Contractors can refer here for more detail.
  2. Add 15% to account for shifts when more workers are present.

Calculations for special event portable toilets in San Francisco:

  1. Start with number of attendees multiplied by hours of the event to get your base number.
  2. Determine the ratio of men to women at the event.
  3. Add 20% to your total portable restrooms if there is a higher ratio of women to men at the event.
  4. Add an additional 40% if alcohol is to be served.

Where Can I Keep a Portable Restroom?

Most companies will let you place portable toilets in San Francisco just about anywhere you need to as long as it is safe and legal. Examples of unsafe and illegal areas are on a street, bike lane or freeway shoulder. You many need a permit to place on school or public property such as a parking lot. Here's an easy checklist if you are placing on private property or a construction site:

  1. Find flat, sturdy (i.e. no mud) surface.
  2. Give at least 30 feet for the truck to delivery the porta potty (unless you are renting a toilet trailer in San Francisco that will have more mobility).
  3. Make sure the portable toilets are placed out of high traffic areas where heavy construction equipment or forklifts will be passing regularly.

Choosing the Right San Francisco Porta Potty Company

Here at XRefer we know that you have options when it comes to choosing a porta potty rental company in San Francisco, and it's often difficult to select the one that suits your needs the best.

  • How often do you inspect your portable toilets to make sure they are in top condition?
