Portable toilets play a vital role in outdoor events and construction sites, offering convenience to users and ensuring a sanitary environment. For optimal performance of portable units, it’s essential to follow some simple guidelines. Our service technicians have shared their valuable insights to help you make the most of your portable toilet rental. Here are some tips to keep in mind:

**1.  “Don’t Block the Unit”**

One of the most critical aspects of maintaining a portable toilet is accessibility. Ensure that the unit is placed in a location where it’s easily reachable for both users and service technicians. Avoid blocking the unit with vehicles or other obstacles or placing it farther then 10ft from a road or hard surface.

**2.  “Give Me 5 Minutes”**

When our service technician arrives to service your portable toilet, it’s essential to allow them the time and space they need to do their job efficiently. Most service calls take only a few minutes, so a little patience goes a long way. Grant them the five minutes required to ensure the unit remains clean, fresh, and fully functional.

**3. “No Debris in the Tank”**

Portable toilets are designed to handle specific waste materials, human waste and toilet paper. Do not dispose of waste such as paper towels, diapers, or trash, in the unit. Preventing debris from entering the tank will help maintain proper functionality.

**4. “Keep the Unit Graffiti-Free”**

Respect for the facilities is crucial in maintaining a clean and pleasant environment. Avoid vandalizing or defacing the portable toilet with graffiti or any other form of damage. This not only ensures a more comfortable experience for users but also reflects positively on your event or site.

**5. “Plan for Your Service Day”**

To ensure a seamless experience with your portable toilet, consider the following:

Accessibility is Key: Ensure that your portable toilet is easily accessible. Be certain that it is not obstructed by any obstacles. If your unit requires a lock, make sure Mr. John has access, either through an unlocked unit or by providing keys or a combination code.

Location Updates: If you have relocated the portable toilet to a different spot, it’s important to inform the Mr. John team promptly. Providing accurate location information is vital for our technicians to locate and service the unit efficiently.

**6. “More Service, the Better: No One Likes a Full Toilet” (User and Service Technician)**

A full portable toilet can lead to unpleasant experiences for users and service technicians alike. To maintain hygiene and comfort, schedule more frequent servicing if your unit is heavily used. It’s always better to err on the side of caution to avoid any inconvenience.

In conclusion, following these tips from our experienced service technicians will help ensure that your portable toilet remains in excellent condition, providing a clean and convenient experience for users. Remember that maintaining these units is a collective effort between users and service providers, and your cooperation makes a significant difference. If you have any questions or need further guidance, don’t hesitate to reach out to Mr. John for assistance. Together, we can make portable toilets a reliable and comfortable solution for everyone.
