Do I Really Need More than One Porta Potty?

Planning Porta Potty Rentals At Your Event

If you have an upcoming event, it’s imperative to start planning early on. Knowing exactly the food you want to serve, the quantities needed, music selection, location, and seating requirements are all necessary early on. If you’ve already made the decision to have a porta potty rental on site, it’s a pretty wise decision as your guests will surely appreciate it and use the facility. However, just how many porta potty rentals do you need? Is it really necessary to have more than one? Here are a few questions to ask yourself to find out.

How Many Patrons Will Attend the Event?

First, consider how many attendants will be present. As you can naturally assume guests sitting down at a dinner function will sip on their drinks often, you’d still be amazed at how much a person can drink at a social gathering. Consuming so many drinks means frequent trips to the porta potty. You don’t want your guests waiting for a long time in lengthy lines. They want to relieve themselves as soon as possible.

How Long Is the Event?

For events lasting longer than two hours, it’s definitely important to have numerous porta potty rentals on site. Having a few quality restrooms makes guests feel comfortable compared to using a standard blue porta potty.

Will There Be a Lot of Women Present?

If you are expecting many women, having numerous porta potty rentals is essential. Women use the restroom often, they also want to fix their hair and makeup while inside. Don’s Jon’s has luxury porta potty rentals complemented with gorgeously designed vanities.

Are Kids Attending The Event?

Having children at the event also dictates the number of porta potty rentals you need. For one, family restrooms are a popular choice since they have spacious seating areas for children to rest up. They also come with baby changing stations, making it easy for parents to change their children. The entire family can stay together in a family restroom.

You do want to have a separate porta potty rental from your family suite as well. Not everyone wants to use the restroom facility with an uncomfortable child just next door. Also, some conversations may not be appropriate for little ears to hear.

Don’s Johns staff are great at helping you plan and organize for your event needs. Contact us today at 888-331-6323, so we can walk you through arranging the correct number of porta potty rentals.

Portable Toilet Rental on the Moon?

While reading our daily news, we found out that there is in fact, a portable toilet sitting on the moon.

YES… REALLY! 😉

NASA recently released new images of the Moon, clearly showing a porta potty left by the famous astronauts, Buzz Aldroun and Neil Armstrong during their historic mission in 1969.  The recent picture from NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO), can be seen below:

We wonder if NASA made their own porta potty, or whether they bought a porta john for sale? If it were a portable toilet rental, that would be one expensive bill!  Now we’re sure that they didn’t have a luxury restroom trailer rental available back then, but If they did we’re sure they would have went with one of America’s Best Restroom Trailer rentals around and they may have even rented Restroom trailers in DC!

An Urban Legend is circulating around that a 5 year old company named Don’s Johns may or may not have played a hand in this special outdoor event when it came to the use of portable johns on the moon.  Rumor also has it that Don’s Johns wanted to service the area shortly after the astronauts left, but decided to leave it as a piece of human history.

Did Don’s Johns really provide the portable toilet that went to the moon?  I suppose that secret lies within the spirit of our founders, Thelma and Don Rainwater…

We may not have been on the moon, but if you’re looking for a portable toilet rental, restroom trailer rental, porta john for sale to be at your outdoor event, Don’s Johns is here to serve you where and when you need it. With the right selection and all the portable restroom rentals you could ever want, you can’t go wrong when it comes to one of Don’s Johns.  Call us today at 888-331-6323 or email sales@donsjohns.com for your portable toilet rental needs.

Keep Your Customers Happy, Even During Business Remodeling

remodeling

Don’s Johns has been servicing the greater Washington, DC area for 50 years. As you may think of us as just a provider of portable restrooms for construction crews, concerts, weddings, and other special events, we also are here for our local businesses, even during remodeling.

If you’re working on a simple or complete remodeling project, you still have a business to run; you can’t just close your doors. Don’s Johns understands your pains of trying to keep happy customers, even during your business remodeling season. Here are three ways partnering with us helps you keep your customers happy during such a hectic and unorganized time.

Leaves the Impression Your Employees Practice Sanitary Habits

In most establishments, there are employee restrooms and separate customer restrooms. However, sometimes a place of business only has one. Your customers are going to notice the lack of restrooms for your staff, be it a food establishment or general retail store. Good hygiene and sanitary practices are expected nowadays. With germ spreading on the rise, a customer can’t help but notice and wonder if your employees are washing their hands throughout the day.

Help ease your customer’s mind and let them know that you have a clean restroom facility on site for your staff to use. This is also a great way to show the contractor and their crew you are looking out for their best interests as well. Don’s John’s restrooms each have hot and cold running water and ample amounts of soap. You’ll also find having a few hand sanitizers in your restaurant establishment for employees to use once they’ve left the restroom is comforting as well.

Don’t Lose Customers Because of a Lack of Restroom Facility

When your customers come out to shop and browse, they want to do so comfortably. However, having children with them could cut their trip short, if you are renovating the store and restroom area. Your customers may need to change their babies. Toddlers alert parents right then and there they have to use the restroom, not a moment sooner. Once your customer leaves your place of business, this opens the door for them to visit your competitor, with a clean restroom waiting for their use. The possibility of them walking back to pick up that item they were eyeing is drastically reduced.

Get the Portable Option to Meet the Needs of Your Customers

Make sure your customer needs are being met. Don’s Johns has a variety of standard portable restroom solutions as well as luxury restroom trailers that are ADA compliant. Each trailer is stocked with antibacterial soap to use with hot and cold running water, which is perfect to prevent the spread of germs during the cold season. The cool winter air prevents most from wanting to use a standard portable unit outdoors. However, our restroom trailers are a climate-controlled environment, for those side-walk sale shoppers to relieve themselves in comfort.

You can count on Don’s Johns to provide the portable restroom facilities your organization needs. We have plenty on hand and available for you to use for as long as you need.

How to Choose Between a Restroom Trailer and a Portable Toilet for Your Event

How to Choose Between a Restroom Trailer and a Portable Toilet for Your Event

You may have already read about how many porta potty’s you should have for your event in our Porta Potty Event Planning Guide. However, how do you determine which is best for your event: a restroom trailer versus a portable restroom? Let’s examine the benefits of both and other considerations to factor into your decision.

restroom trailer

Benefits of Restroom Trailers

A restroom trailer is one large unit which contains a few to many individual restroom stalls. You can rent a basic trailer to one of our most presidential functioning trailers. Trailers offer more space for your guests than an individual portable toilet unit does. Restroom trailers are a climate controlled environment.

Each Don’s Johns trailer come with dual audio sound systems and television screens to keep up with the outdoor engagements. You’ll also have large Corian or granite countertops, hardwood flooring, recessed lighting, hot and cold running water, and other beautiful amenities included. Restroom trailers are an excellent investment for large, formal events.

portable-restroom

Benefits of Portable Restroom

A portable restroom is a single unit meant for one person to use at a time. They also offer complete privacy, something individuals at certain gathers may appreciate more. If you are having a standard event or are budget conscious, portable toilets are a good way to go. You may also upgrade to Don’s Johns VIP Flushing Toilet with Sink.

How Long Will the Event Be For?

The first thing you want to consider is how long your event will be for. A one or two-day event is perfect for portable toilets. However, if you will be hosting an event for a few days, restroom trailers are an excellent choice. They have large holding tanks that do not need to be frequently changed.

Where is the Event Located and What Type of Guests Will Be Present?

Make sure to arrive at your event location and find out where you can set up your portable restroom or trailer units. That may determine which you can have on-site.

You’ll also want to factor in which your guest will appreciate more. An entire wedding party would not appreciate trying to squeeze into a single portable restroom to help each other dress for an outdoor wedding.

What are the Weather Expectations?

In addition to considering where your event will be, what is the weather expected to be like? If you are hosting an event outdoors, and there is a chance of rain, your guest will appreciate having a restroom trailer to retreat into. Guests can refresh themselves and hang out until the downpour is over if needed. If it’s extremely hot outside, you and your guests will appreciate being able to retreat to a burst of cool air.

What is Your Event’s Budget?

Don’s Johns has a variety of restroom trailers and portable restrooms. We have standard porta potty restrooms and you can upscale to our Luxury Presidential Restroom Trailer. You can be as fancy as you want. There is a unit for everyone though that can accommodate your needs and budget.

As you can see, there are a number of factors that affect your decision to rent a restroom trailer or a portable restroom. Contact our friendly representatives at 888-331-6323 today so we can find a unit to match your needs.

4 Reasons Don’s Johns is Excellent to Have in Case of Emergencies

4 Reasons Don’s Johns is Excellent to Have in Case of Emergencies

24 Hours a Day ● 7 Days a Week ● 365 Days a Year
Don’s Johns knowledgeable and trained staff is available anytime day or night to provide emergency portable restrooms, restroom trailers, shower trailers, and pumping services. Call us at 888-331-6323, extension 701 for immediate service.
———————————————————————————————————-

Don’s Johns certainly does not thrive in emergency situations. After all, we are residents of the greater DC area also. However, when disasters strike, we are here to help you through any situation. Let Don’s Johns keep you in a clean and proper state. The following four reasons are why Don’s Johns is excellent to have in case of any emergencies.

The Main Water Line Breaks

Some emergencies seem small, but they are a trying time to live and work through. If a water line break in a residential area, hundreds of people are left with no hygienic option of bathing, sanitizing their utensils for eating, or eliminating waste. Don’s Johns has portable restrooms and sinks. For example, the DJ2000L Luxury Restroom Trailer  is equipped with a 300 gallon waste capacity, of which Don’s Johns staff will keep changing it regularly. Each portable sink provides clean, hot and cold running water, which can be used for cooking and cleaning.

First Response Teams Need Access

In situations where first response teams are necessary, they too need clean restrooms to keep going through the long days and nights. Our DJ Shower Trailer restrooms are energy efficient, come with an 800 gallon shower capacity, attached dressing areas, and are temperature regulated. So no matter if they are responding to a local flood, train wreck, fire, or there for a major catastrophe, they have a sanitized environment to break way to for just even a moment.

Prevents Business Interruption

Should a fire occur in the building or neighborhood, it could take many businesses down. As you may have a backup generator for electricity, what about clean water and restrooms? Our DJ5000L Luxury Restroom Trailer is the solution to preventing your business from shutting down. It provides a way for employers to keep employees on site, maintaining proper hygiene and able to use a clean toilet.

Don’s Johns is a Proud Member of the PSAI

The Portable Sanitation Association International (PSAI) is the largest trade association in the industry, which sets the bar for companies that offer Portable restroom facilities and accessories. They ensure that anyone can get sanitized restrooms in a disastrous situation. So, Don’s Johns makes sure we adhere to their regulatory requirements. We do this by providing clean services such as portable restrooms, hand washing stations, hand wipe and foam wipe stations, hand sanitizers, and hot and cold water portable sinks.

Although Don’s Johns is available 24/7, you can always plan ahead. You can purchase a used portable toilet from us and store away just in case. Contact Don’s Johns at 888-331-6323 today, to inquire about a plan to keep you and your family safe should a disaster strike.

6 Things You Must Look for in Renting Your Portable Restroom

porta-potty-rental

In hosting your event, you may already understand the importance of renting portable restrooms. So, be it a flea market, concert, wedding, or family reunion, keeping your guests happy and comfortable is a number one rule. There is a variety of portable restrooms to provide your guests. However, you should be aware of the following six things to look for when renting.

1. Provide adequate water for your guests.

Some events may require to have a supply of drinking water. Make sure you have a sink with hot and cold running water for events where children can get messy. Free standing portable sinks spaced out throughout the park is ideal.

2. Select a company that keeps the restroom stocked.

A properly stocked portable restroom is ideal to keeping guests happy. The restroom should have plenty of toilet paper, paper towels, and soap.

3. Verify the products and services the portable restroom supplier provides.

There is some product standards such as toilet paper. However, you can supply other essential items to your even attended from one portable restroom provider. Ask if they have hand washing stations, hand sanitizers, hand foam stations, restroom wraps, or even valet services.

4. Ensure there is proper odor control.

To separate your portable restroom from any standard unattended restroom at the park, it should smell the part. Having air fresheners inside will help, but it starts with an excellent interior restroom system that does not recirculate the water.

5. For large events, provide at least one luxury restroom trailer and ADA accessible trailer.

In most cases, having an ADA accessible trailer or luxury trailer is a respectable gesture. In other cases, it’s mandatory to have. You can accommodate all types of guests by having a luxury ADA accessible trailer.

6. Have the proper sized holding tank.

The holding tank should fit directly under the trailer. They are meant to act as an above ground storage solution. The fewer trailers you have available and more event attendees, keeping an extra on site is a good idea. Your restroom attendee can easily swap this out for you.

Remember, pricing is not everything. Ask your service portable restroom provider if they supply the above six as a standard service. If not, you could be looking at paying for the essential items you should have. Contact Don’s Johns at 888-331-6323 so a specialist can direct you towards the proper products you need for your event.
