How do you Rent a Porta Potty?
Figuring out the exact number of porta potties to rent for your gathering or construction site doesn't have to be a difficult process. Here are three simple tips that will help you decide how many portable restrooms will suit your needs:
-The size of the crowd attending — assign one restroom per fifty guests
-How long your event/project is running – adjust accordingly depending on whether it’s hours, days, weeks or months
-Amount of alcohol being consumed - remember this factor as an increase in imbibing means more loo visits!

The style or type of unit that you need is also affected by the type of event. You wouldn't necessarily use the same porta potty at a construction site as you would at a wedding or upscale event.

However, for upscale events, a restroom trailer may be a better option, considering the atmosphere of the event and the type of guests that will be attending.
