Moon Portable Restrooms is proud to have so many different models for different events and needs available for those in the Kentucky area, especially our flushable portable toilets and upscale restroom trailers with running water or showers!
When people think of portable restrooms, oftentimes, the only thing that comes to mind is a standard port-a-potty, baking in the sun without anything except the flies, a lock, a toilet, and – if you’re lucky – a roll of thin, one-ply toilet paper. With Moon standard portable toilets, you’ll get an experience better than that because we practice proper maintenance and sanitation, but standard units still aren’t the most exciting portable toilets out there no matter how well-kept they are.
Our flushable portable toilet units are a different story! These premium portable toilets offer larger floor space, a handwashing station, and the flushing mechanism that makes this upgrade worth the investment. The sanitary hands-free flushing foot pump is all you need to flush unsightly evidence of waste away and give off the impression that you’re business is your business. It has a capacity for up to 150 flushes, too, so you likely won’t need any more of them than you would a standard port-a-potty!
While flushable portable toilets seem like a great idea, how exactly do they work? And how do they manage to keep enough water to flush 150 times before they run out?
How a Moon Flushable Portable Restroom Works
Flushable Portable toilets are usually made of 4-5 core components:
- A Toilet Seat
- A Holding Tank
- A Flushing Mechanism
- A Pressure System
- An Optional Additional Storage Tank
It’s difficult to believe that one flushable portable restroom could hold enough water for 150 flushes, but it all depends on how much water is being used to flush!
Unlike traditional residential toilets that require plumbing to bring waste and wastewater out via pipes to the sewer system, flushable portable toilets do not reply on the sewer system as they’re being used. Instead, since all waste is contained in a hidden holding tank directly underneath the toilet that is equipped with chemicals to eliminate odors, break all solid waste down (including toilet paper, which is why it’s usually so thin), and kill germs, gravity does a bulk of the work! The flushing mechanism simply facilitates the movement and guides all leftover matter down as well for a clean toilet every time from either a separate tank of clean water or using diluted deodorizing chemicals from the holding tank.
After approximately 150 flushes, the holding tank must be emptied and refilled with water to flush, which we’ll take care of! Additional holding tanks are available, and we’ll be happy to consult with you to figure out the best course of action on how many flushable units you’ll need for your event.
