Reduce Restroom Lines [A Guide To Decrease Guest Frustration]

The last thing attendees want to do is stand in line for the bathroom. At the same time, planning an event that will meet guest needs can be complicated. Even the bathroom situation may present a challenge. Read on to find ways to Reduce Restroom Lines at your next event. 

If you are planning an event, the key is to pay close attention to the guest experience. Portable toilet rentals are a significant part of the experience that your guests have at your event. Read on to learn more about the steps you can take to improve guest experience with portable toilets.

Increase Your Portable Toilet Order To Reduce Restroom Lines

One of the best things you can do about reducing restroom lines is to discuss the perfect number of toilets with us in your planning phase.  

You might also consider investing in higher quality bathrooms. For example, you might invest in a restroom trailer or solar restroom trailer rather than on individual porta potties.

The number of toilets you need also depends on the type of event, specifically if there are times when most people will be trying to use a bathroom at the same time. For instance, you might have a sudden influx of restroom-goers during a concert after the openers play but not if you are renting toilets for an arts and crafts fair.

Additionally, you need to increase your bathroom presence if your event is drink-centered. If you have a beer or wine festival, you may need more toilets than if you are hosting a craft fair.

Place Toilets Efficiently To Reduce Restroom Lines

Placement of your portable toilets is critical to Reduce Restroom Lines. Your guests do not want to drink and eat near the porta potty. As such, you want to ensure they are centrally located and accessible.

One way to reduce the impact of long lines is to put your toilets away from crowds. You might also consider arranging them in a U-shape rather than in one line facing attendees. The U-shape encourages lines in which the first person can see the available toilets when people exit.

Next, create a natural line for your guests to Reduce Restroom Lines. You might use ropes to guide the course of the line to ensure it wraps around effectively without getting into the event space.

Placing toilets throughout the area is beneficial if your event is quite large. For example, you want to place toilets throughout a race to ensure guests have easy access to toilets. Signage is also helpful to prevent guests from getting lost.

Understand Guest Needs To Reduce Restroom Lines

Are you thinking about separating portable toilets by gender? Some event coordinators have good reason to do so, especially because ordering the right number of restrooms can be a challenge.

For example, women tend to spend more time in the toilet. If you want to keep your lines generally equal for men and women, you may want to supply more toilets for the women.
