7 FAQ’s About Porta Potty Rentals

7 FAQ’s About Porta Potty Rentals for Residential Use

At Don’s Johns, we’re ready to make things easy for you. Here are the top seven frequently asked questions our customers ask regarding our residential porta potty rentals

How long does it take to set up a porta potty at my home?

Porta potty rentals don’t take long to set up at all. We can have your unit delivered by the end of the business day should you experience any electrical or plumbing emergencies. They come fully equipped with hot and cold running water, paper towels, soap, and toilet tissue.

What are the rental period requirements for a porta potty and additional accessories?

You can rent a porta potty and accessories from Don’s Johns for one day through several months. Once we discuss your needs and usage, we’ll draw up a contract, including scheduled cleanings for you. If you’re unsure at the moment how long you need it for, simply call us later to discuss extending the porta potty rental period.

Is each porta potty clean upon arrival?

We believe in clean and sanitized units. That’s what sets us apart from the rest. Each unit you receive will be just as close to new as can be. Once we receive each porta potty back from a customer, we give it a thorough steam cleaning process, remove all old material, and replace it with fresh materials such as toilet paper and paper towels.

Where does the porta potty need to be set up at?

As long as you have a flat surface our service crew can access, such as a driveway, we can meet your setup needs. The only proximity requirement that we have is for extended rentals. Then, please have a place prepared within 25 feet of the street so our service crew can take proper maintenance when necessary.

Who is responsible for cleaning the porta potty and how often should it be cleaned?

Our technicians will be out to clean your unit per the setup schedule. If you have it just one day, of course, that’s not necessary. However, for an extended contract, your holding tank needs to be swapped out, and we’ll happily clean and sanitize the inside as well. If you ever find you are utilizing it more than originally expected, we can arrange for an additional service call and adjust pricing from there.

How many porta potty’s do I need?

We want your event to run smoothly. That’s why our representatives are trained and knowledgeable. We’ll go through a selection of questions with you to have the appropriate number of porta potty’s on hand, so your event is comfortable for all. If you need it for a construction crew, we ensure you are OSHA compliant.

Are there strong odors in the porta potty?

You never have to worry about strong odors with our porta potty rentals. Each comes sanitized and deodorized and works for an extended period. It’s truly a refreshing change to your standard porta potty.

Contact Don’s Johns today to set up your porta potty rental today: 877-9-TOILET. We are helpful and friendly and waiting to service you.

If You’re Camping With a Bunch of Friends, Don’t Forget the Porta John

It’s exciting to meet up with friends and all go out for a much needed weekend excursion. Camping is something that can be done year round. However, not everyone is well adapted to handle the outdoors when it comes to camping and using the restroom. And, just like a normal local park, nobody wants to even walk by a standard porta john. With that said, you may not have even considered renting a Porta John for the duration of your camping trip. Don’s Johns has many options available that can satisfy even the most prestige campers.

Which Type of Porta John is Right for Your Group?

First, you need to consider which Porta John is right for you. Guesstimate how many people will use it and then how often. Our toilets are flushable and have large holding tanks, so there’s no problems with odors or being filled all too quickly.

Our Premium Porta John offers hands-free flushing. It has a sink, paper towels, solar power lightening, and vanity with mirror. It’s not the cat’s meow, but hey, you’re roughing it right? What’s so nice about this Porta John is you can transport it yourself should you relocate elsewhere. We have many other standalone restrooms that may interest you as well.


We also provide Luxury Restroom Trailer’s, of which many order for their wedding and anniversary events. The Corian interiors may seem a bit much, but for someone who doesn’t’ get “roughing” it, bringing this little piece of home will be just what they need.

Of course, we have standard Porta John restroom trailers available as well. They also have beautiful interiors and marble sinks. There are three toilets in the women’s suite and two in the men’s.

Extra Long Camping Trip? Consider a Shower Trailer

Should your camping trip be of great length, you may all enjoy the trip better with our DJ Shower Trailer there by your side. It has everything you need, including an attached dressing area, heating and cooling, mirrors, and lights. The men’s and women’s suites both have three shower stalls, a toilet, and a sink. All you need to hook this up is a garden hose and 110v power connector.

Be sure to include Don’s Johns on your next outdoor adventure. We have plenty of available Porta Johns that can meet your needs and budget.



High School Sports Are in Full Effect with Don’s Johns Portable Restrooms

Portable Restrooms for High School Sporting Events

It’s that time of the year again where sports fans gather to celebrate their favorite high school teams. Don’s Johns is a family company, so we understand the importance of supporting our youth. The more wins your team has, the more visitors come out each game day. There are sure to be plenty of Gatorade, water bottles, and snacks for all. If your sports field does not have any or enough portable restrooms on site, contact Don’s Johns to help alleviate the stress.

The Fans Have a Spot to Use Adequate Portable Restrooms

You can’t help but to love it when our favorite high school teams go into overtime. The excitement of it all is an adrenaline rush. However, fans sometimes can’t wait through it all as they have been eating and drinking all day for the games. They need adequate restroom facilities with plenty of clean running water and flushing toilets. This is great to accommodate visiting teams, parents, family, and friends. We can deliver to your local high school or any other local park.

A Great Way to Send Athletes to Take a Breather at a Portable Restroom 

High school games are meant to be fun and show team spirit, however, athletes can still get hurt. Having a portable restroom is excellent to have at high school games so any injuries can be treated well, off the field.

Athletes can rest up in a roomy Luxury Restroom Trailer with Family Room. It’s complete with hot and cold running water, soap, and paper towels. These are staples in helping heal wounds. If players over heat, our restroom trailers are perfect also since they are air conditioned units. They can still be a part of the game while listening and watching on our large flat screen televisions inside.

Cheerleaders Can Get Ready to Hit the Field

You can’t expect everyone to be ready to walk on the field for a big performance without brushing up their makeup, touching up their hair, and giving a great pep talk! Cheerleaders and other cheer squad members will take pleasure in having a comfortable environment to wait or change for the screaming fans outside.

Provide Additional Sanitary Options

Don’s Johns offers other sanitary options for your sports teams as well. Players need to intake a lot of water, and our Quad Wash Station is a great standby option. We also have hand sanitizers so all sports fans can have clean hands before diving into their celebration cake!

Contact our representatives today to help coordinate your next high school event with portable restrooms. You give us an estimated number of fans, and we’ll take care of the rest. 877-9-TOILETS

Post-Sandy Portable Toilet Sighting!

Our portable toilets are famous for their comfort and convenience.  We have many fans throughout the area who share their Don’s Johns sightings.  Christine is a passionate porta potty photographer who wanted to share her latest Don’s Johns portable toilet sighting with us.

“The day of Hurricane Sandy I took a drive thru downtown Mclean to photograph the aftermath of the storm.  Like most of the DC area, there were downed trees, leaving most without power and heat.Most of the businesses in Mclean were without power, forcing many to close.  Although some business were open by the grace of a generator and a cash only existence some remained open and unscathed by the effects of Hurricane Sandy.This outdoor pumpkin patch was able to conduct “business” as usual thanks to Dons Johns.  Furthermore, I thought this picture was rather festive for the Halloween and upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

Don’s Johns, the John that keeps on giving relief to all who “pop in” for a visit.  :-)”
