A lot of people assume that they can not use a portable restroom in the winter. They think that it isn’t possible due to the cold weather making the unit freeze. This is one of a few misconceptions that arise in the sanitation industry. Check out this guide for answers to common questions we tend to receive once the temperature begins to drop.
Can I use a portable restroom during the winter?
You can most definitely rent a portable restroom during the cold winter months. We have the infrastructure and proven processes to prepare your special event or job site for freezing temperatures. Cold weather will not stop you from enjoying portable sanitation.
How do you prevent a portable restroom from freezing?
We have several proven processes to prevent your portable restroom from freezing. We fill the tanks of our restrooms with a methanol mixture that will prevent water and waste from freezing. Our urinals are salted to prevent moisture from freezing as well. We recommend including portable restroom electric space heaters to your rental order to help keep your guests or employees warm.
Can I rent a luxury restroom trailer during the winter?
Some of our luxury restroom trailers are available for rent for cold weather outdoor use by using our Winter Packages that includes access to extra 110V – 20 AMP electrical circuits, Premier 170 heater, skirting, & heated hoses.
Our On Site Suite, Commercial Prestige, Versa, Comfort Station, and Prestige are all compatible with our Winter Package. Please contact us for more details.
Can I rent a luxury shower trailer during the winter?
Unfortunately, luxury shower trailers can’t be used outdoors during the winter. There’s too much running water in showers to be able to separate our methanol mixture that prevents freezing from potable water that is safe to bathe with. Consider placing the shower trailer indoors if you have access to indoor space.
How can I keep the ground from freezing or thaw frozen ground?
We have a wide selection of ground thawing units that can prevent the ground from freezing or thaw freezing ground. We recommend including ground thaw blankets to your rental order to maximize the efficiency of the heaters. This equipment can also be used to cure concrete during the winter as well.
