Taking Care Of Plumbing Problems

Coping with plumbing problems is never easy, which is one of the reasons I started focusing more and more on working with a professional. I started paying more and more attention to the things that I wasn't great at, and it occurred to me that without the right training and the proper supplies, I could cause permanent damage to my plumbing system. I started going through and taking care of plumbing problems with the help of a professional plumber, and it was incredible to see how much of a difference the expert made.

Planning An Outdoor Event? What To Consider With Providing Portable Toilets

Are you planning an outdoor event for a large number of people, but one of the problems is that there is no plumbing in sight? If so, porta-potties can be the answer to your problem with a lack of plumbing. However, it is not as simple as getting some portable toilets to your event site.

Holding Tank

There are two ways that you can handle the waste that is created in the portable toilet. Basic models collect the waste in an open tank beneath the toilet seat, while more advanced models have a separate holding tank that the waste is deposited into. Once the waste goes into a toilet, a foot pedal is used to deposit it into a holding tank.

The need for one unit over the other depends on what kind of event you are having. For instance, if you have an outdoor wedding at a beach with no local bathrooms, you will definitely want to upgrade to a flushable unit for the sake of your guests.


Guests to your event will need some place to wash their hands afterwards, and with no plumbing, the water needs to come from somewhere. The most basic portable toilet will be pretty bare bones with no sink in it, but you can upgrade to units that have a sink, mirror, and built-in soap dispenser.

If you are looking to save money, you can always stick to the basic model and supplement the portable toilets with a portable sink. These units have a huge water reserve tank and will provide a single place for everyone to wash their hands, even those people that do not want to wait in line to use the bathroom. Consider going to with a portable sink if you have an outdoor food event where you know people are going to want to wash their hands before and after they eat.

Special Amenities

Do not forget that you will need special amenities for your guests, such as handicap portable toilets and baby changing stations. Thankfully, you do not need to have all the toilets equipped with these amenities but can just get a couple for those guests that need it. It's even possible to get a portable toilet that is big enough to accommodate handicap access and baby changing in a single unit.

Not sure of your specific needs for portable toilets? Contact a local rental company for more information.
