Bathroom Renovations 101: Running New Pipes

When I decided to add a pedestal sink and claw foot tub to my bathroom, I had no idea how much new plumbing I had to run. Since I had never run pipes before, I wasn't sure how to do it properly. I did a lot of research before I started so that I could be sure that I was doing it right. As I was researching, I knew that it would be helpful to have all of the information I found in one place. That was the inspiration for this site. I hope that the plumbing resources help you with your next home improvement project.

Getting Ready For A Big Event? How To Prepare For Your Portable Toilet Needs

When it comes to renting portable toilets, you can never be too careful. After all, sanitation mistakes can undermine the success of your entire event. The best way to avoid problems with your portable toilets is to make plans in advance. Here are some helpful tips to follow while you're planning for your sanitation needs.

Choose Placement Carefully

When you're renting portable toilets for an event, you need to make sure you get the placement right. You want the portable toilets to be close enough for your guests to get to with ease. But, you don't want them so close that they're creating an unpleasant situation for guests who might be eating. That's why it's important that you choose placement carefully. If possible, situate your portable toilets downwind from where your guests will be gathering. 

Ensure Accessibility

If you're going to be renting portable toilets for your event, consider accessibility. This is especially important when considering the mobility concerns of your guests. Rocky and rough terrain can be difficult for individuals in wheelchairs. Steep hills can also be a concern for those individuals. To avoid mobility issues, make sure your portable toilets aren't located on rough or rocky terrain. If most of your portable toilets will be located in this type of area, be sure to include additional units for your guests with mobility concerns. Those units should be placed in an area that's accessible for individuals in wheelchairs. 

Plan for Weather Changes

The weather forecast may show clear skies during your scheduled event. It's important to remember that the weather can change. If you haven't taken that into consideration when planning your portable toilets, your guests might be less-than-happy with the experience. To avoid problems with the weather, plan for unexpected changes. First, consider renting portable canopies for your portable toilets. Canopies provide protection from rain, and from direct sunlight. Second, include tie-down stakes with your portable toilet rental. Tie-down stakes will keep your portable toilets securely attached to the ground. This is especially beneficial to have during freak windstorms. 

Stop the Spread of Germs

Finally, if you're planning an event during the current pandemic, take steps to reduce germs. You don't want your event to become the focal point of a new outbreak. One way to prevent that is to include hygiene stations with your portable toilet rentals. Providing a way for your guests to wash their hands before and after using the restroom facilities will help to reduce the spread of germs.
