Portable Restroom Rentals at Moon Portables

Most of us are at least a little familiar with the options when it comes to portable restrooms. Standard porta-potties are common at events, public spaces, and construction sites. However, there are some options you may not be aware of. Today on the blog, we’ll be taking a look at Moon’s full array of portable restroom rentals

Overview of Moon’s Portable Restroom Rentals

As mentioned before, portable restrooms are flexible for your needs. Whether you need a solution for construction sites, special events, weddings or a backyard party, Moon Portable Restrooms offers a complete line of specialized restroom equipment. Our units are clean, well maintained restrooms with large interior spaces that come fully equipped. Here’s a look at the specific restrooms we have available for rent. 

Standard Portable Unit

Our standard restroom has everything you expect and need from a portable restroom. It has maximum ventilation and an anti-slip floor to create a safe and comfortable environment. It also has a translucent top to let sunlight in, and comes with two toilet paper rolls. Another great feature is its size: though it’s streamlined, it actually has 17% more interior space than the average portable restroom. 

This is a lightweight, sturdy, and user-friendly restroom that is very popular with our customers. It’s often the unit they select for everything from graduations to backyard cookouts. With a 60 gallon waste tank, it is also the appropriate size for many events. 

Flushable Portable Restroom

This flushable restroom is a premium unit with an array of great features. First and foremost, it has a flushing toilet. This separates it from our standard unit. It also has a larger floor space (24% more than standard) and a hand sink, a soap dispenser, and a paper towel dispenser. Like our standard unit, it also has a translucent roof and anti-slip flooring. 

The flushable restroom unit offers just a bit more than a standard portable restroom. It’s a great option for events where children may need help from their parents in the restroom. 

Floosh Luxury Portable Restroom

The Floosh portable restroom is our luxury offering. This restroom is designed by Floosh and is available exclusively through Moon Portable Restrooms. It is the perfect restroom solution for intimate events including weddings, baby showers, graduation parties, bridal showers, and more!

Some of the luxury features in this restroom include a flushing porcelain toilet, a sink, LED lighting, touch-free faucets, and a full-length mirror. Plus, the restroom is completely solar powered. This means you won’t need electricity to keep the interior lighting on! It also has built-in exhaust fans that help keep the interior nice and cool. If you have a luxury event coming up and need an elegant solution, this is the restroom for you!

Restroom Trailers: A Versatile Option for Events

Restroom trailers are an excellent option for many types of events. Just like porta-potties, they offer convenient on-site restroom facilities. They also boast several other features that we think are worth highlighting. Today on the blog it’s all about restroom trailers!

Restroom Trailers Offer Capacity Versatility

One of the key features a restroom trailer offers is higher capacity. From the smallest two-stall trailers to the largest multi-stall trailers, these units are perfect for events of any size. With a single unit, you can easily have several restrooms available at once, meeting the needs of your particular event easily. The best part is its scalable- if you only need two restrooms, you can select a unit like the Porta Lisa. If your event requires multiple stalls, you can book something like the 28’ Flex Large Restroom Trailer. This trailer boasts 7 stalls, with 2 flex stalls that you can add to either the men’s or women’s side of the trailer to meet your needs (with a dividing partition).

AC, Showers, and More Amenities

Another great thing about restroom trailers is that you can have as many or as few amenities as you’d like. All of Moon’s trailers come with custom features like full sinks, mirrors, and flushing toilets. However, if you want to spruce things up a bit, you can go for a unit like the Comfort Elite Platinum Plus. This luxury trailer has sophisticated design elements and accents and is equipped with both air conditioning and heat. It also offers 2 women’s stalls and a full size vanity, plus three urinals and 1 stall with a full size vanity on the men’s side. Its wood grain floor, mirrors, cabinetry, subway tile, and built-in stereo add a dash of sophistication to the experience too.

You can also select a unit that provides showering facilities if that suits your needs. For instance, our 8-Stall Shower Trailer can be used as a decontamination facility, a disaster relief unit, or an emergency shower. It comes with 8 shower stalls, 2 vanity countertops with 2 sinks each, custom mirrors, and a 300 gallon fresh water tank. This unit has 2 cabins, each with 4 showers and 1 vanity countertop.

Accessibility

You can also select from a variety of accessibility-focused restroom trailers. Our Comfort Elite ADA trailer is designed to meet the needs of people with disabilities, and meet ADA standards for accessibility. This trailer comes with 3 cabins: 1 men’s, 1 women’s, and 1 ADA compliant. It also features a one-touch hydraulic lowering system that allows the trailer to smoothly and quietly lower to the ground for greater accessibility.

We also offer the Executive ADA Restroom trailer as an accessible option. This trailer has three private cabins that feature cabinetry, hardwood flooring, and wainscoting, and is fully ADA compliant. The trailer also boasts a full HVAC system, a sound system, and full vanities with a sink and mirror. Plus, the restrooms have hands-free flushing, and you can access them with lighted stairs or a ramp.

A History of the Porta-Potty

The porta-potty. Today, there are a wide range of available porta-potties on the market, from the simplest single units to large restroom trailers. How did we get here? We’re taking a look back at the history of the porta-potty in today’s blog.

The Beginning

Did you know that modern porta-potties only have roots starting in the middle of the 20th century? World War II is thought to be the time around which the modern porta-potty really started. Some bomber aircraft in the war utilized early units called Elsan chemical closets. Around the same time, the dock loading industry was using an early version of the portable restroom. Loading and unloading was made more efficient with the use of basic portable restrooms on ships for dock workers. These early designs were built with wood and metal. They lacked the sanitizing elements we know today like deodorizer and handwash.

The 1970’s

One major innovation for the modern porta-potty occurred in the 70’s- using fiberglass. Unlike wood and metal, fiberglass is light, easy to clean, and very simple to transport. It does have a few downsides though- it’s relatively fragile and holds odors.

Another innovation solved this issue- using polyethylene. This is a type of plastic that remains in common use today, and is likely what the porta-potties you have seen are constructed with. Polyethylene is even lighter and more durable than fiberglass. It wasn’t just the material that was an innovation. These units are in pieces as well, making it easy to transport the restrooms and switch out broken parts. All of these innovations meant longer-lasting, more transportable porta-potties.

The Porta-Potty Today

Today, porta-potty design has continued to evolve to meet various consumer needs. There are quality standard units that people often use on construction sites and at large events. There are also luxury versions of these single units, with amenities like flushing toilets, sinks, interior lighting, and more. Take a look at what Moon has in our line of units here!

Another major thread of innovation is the restroom trailer. You can attach these units to trailer hitches and haul them easily. They often contain at least two restrooms, but can have up to three or more individual restrooms. Some larger trailers even have a traditional public restroom setup with multiple stalls. Trailers often have features like interior lighting, air conditioning, heating, mirrors, sinks, and finished floors and walls. Some trailers even have shower stalls and changing areas. The sky is the limit with these modern trailer units. Check out some of Moon’s offerings to see for yourself!

There are also a variety of accessories for porta-potties today. Handwashing stations, large holding tanks, and specialized slings are just a few of the add-ons you can use to augment a unit. Check out Moon’s array of accessories here!

How Porta-Potties are Designed and Maintained

Porta-potties are such a ubiquitous aspect of construction sites, large events, and other settings that you may have never given them a second thought. But have you ever wondered how they work? There are actually several interesting design features in porta-potties that make them effective and easy to use and maintain. Let’s take a closer look at how portable restrooms are designed and maintained.

Standard Features in Porta-Potties

The average porta-potty has a few distinct features. They have plastic components and support rails underneath for stabilization. Most have translucent roofs (often white) that let in some light. They also have non-slip floors to prevent falls and ventilation systems to vent odors from the holding tank. The holding tank itself can vary in size, with 60 gallons being one standard size. There is often a non-splash urinal, toilet paper holder, and a hand sanitizer dispenser as well.

There are a few other kinds of portable restroom setups that you may see around. Restroom trailers often have additional features like stairs, flushing toilets, finished floors, fully-functional sinks, counters, mirrors, and lighting. They often have an option for heating or air conditioning as well. They can even have shower facilities in some cases. See Moon’s lineup of restroom trailers here for more some examples.

Some portable restrooms are designed specifically for high-rise construction sites. Cranes can lift these units up to any level of a high-rise and placed for use. See Moon’s PolyLift line here for an example.

The Holding Tank

The holding tank is probably the most fascinating part of the porta-potty. There are several design features that make it a modern marvel. You may be familiar with the blue liquid you see in the tank. This liquid contains a few important things: biocides to kill microbes and bacteria, blue dye to hide waste, and fragrance to cover odors.

Experts clean out porta-potties with vacuum technology. To clean them, experts use large trucks with holding tanks and a vacuum attachment. They attach the vacuum hose to an output in the porta-potty and suck out the contents into a holding tank on the truck. They then fill the porta-potty holding tank with fresh water from another tank on the truck, and add the blue liquid.

However, there are a few things that can complicate the cleaning process. In some unfortunate cases, porta-potties can get knocked over, whether by accident or on purpose. This makes cleaning them much more difficult. Workers often have to flip them and manually clean the insides of units in these cases. Additionally, waste can spew out if a porta-potty is lying on its door side. Some items can also clog the vacuum hose if dropped into the holding tank too. Fortunately, experienced technicians like the team at Moon can handle these situations.

Construction Sites and Portable Restrooms: OSHA Regulations

Having a portable restroom at a construction site is a must for many reasons. It increases productivity and keeps employees healthy. It is also a legal requirement. OSHA requires a certain number of restrooms near job sites, depending on the size of a crew. So when you’re ready to rent restrooms for your next job site, there are a few things you need to keep in mind. Let’s take a look at some of the nuances of the rules.

Following OSHA regulations at construction sites

First and foremost, OSHA regulations dictate that you must have a certain number of restrooms available on site. In regards to portable restrooms, the amount and location is important. Sites with 20 or fewer employees are required to have at least 1 toilet. For sites with 21-199 employees, 1 toilet and 1 urinal per 40 workers is required. For large sites with 200 or more workers, 1 toilet and 1 urinal per 50 workers is necessary.

Requirements don’t just apply to the number of restrooms, though. The location of those restrooms is regulated too. They need to be reasonably close by so that it’s not inconvenient to get to them. OSHA specifically says that restrooms must be ‘provided’ and therefore ‘available’, arguing that restrooms that are not close by are not available. OSHA goes on to state that ‘[I]n general, toilets would be considered ‘nearby’ if it would take less than 10 minutes to get to them.’ So, 10 minutes or less of travel time should be your rule of thumb when you think about placing restrooms at a site.

If you have mobile crews, the same principle applies. OSHA states that ‘Workers who continually or frequently move from jobsite to jobsite on a daily or hourly basis would be considered a “mobile crew.”’ In these cases, ‘nearby’ still requires prompt access within 10 minutes. There is flexibility, as long as restrooms are provided for (with the proper amount per number of employees) within the proximity to meet the definition of ‘nearby.’

Beyond compliance

OSHA regulations are just the bare minimum, though. You may want to exceed them to provide a better experience for your workers. Fortunately, it’s easy to find great options on portable restrooms and handwashing stations. Moon Portable Restrooms has a wide selection of portable restrooms and accessories specific to construction sites. For example, check out the PolyLift, a restroom solution designed for high-rise construction sites. Or, take a look at the Lift Sling, a sling accessory engineered for cranes to move restrooms between locations on site. Handwashing stations streamline everything, creating a centralized location by portable restrooms. Plus, for larger or longer jobs, don’t overlook the option to rent a holding tank. Moon’s 300 gallon holding tank is an effective waste receptacle that’s discrete, durable, and dead useful when indoor plumbing isn’t an option.

Coronavirus and Outdoor Events

As we enter a Summer unlike any other during the pandemic, many of us are figuring out how to safely be around others. Outdoor gatherings or events, when approached carefully, may be a viable option to get together while still staying safe. Let’s take a look at some of the things to keep in mind for outdoor gatherings during the coronavirus pandemic.

Healthy behaviors to prevent coronavirus spread

There are several behaviors that are important to encourage for any people attending a gathering. First, people should stay home from events when necessary. For example, if someone has recently tested positive for the coronavirus, or if they are showing symptoms of the coronavirus, they should not attend any events. If you are planning an event, consider creating policies that encourage this for employees, volunteers, and attendees. Flexible refund and worker policies can help promote safer behaviors.

For people who will be attending an outdoor event or gathering, good hygiene is incredibly important. Regular hand-washing is a key component of preventing disease spread, so easy access to hand-washing and sanitizing stations and areas is crucial. People should also cover coughs and sneezes and wash their hands immediately after.

Cloth face coverings are another key aspect of preventing disease spread. By wearing masks at gatherings, people who may be unknowingly infected keep others safe. Masks are especially important when social distancing is not possible. This distancing is another key component of safe gatherings. People should maintain a distance of at least six feet from people not in their households when possible.

To ensure all of these behaviors are encouraged and followed, make sure you provide necessary supplies and reminders. Post signs that remind people of healthy behaviors in visible locations, and make sure there are enough hand-washing and sanitizing stations. You may want to announce regular reminders to hand-wash, distance, and sanitize. Additionally, you may need to provide cloth masks for people without them.

Healthy environments

There are several key parts of making a safe and healthy environment for outdoor gatherings during the pandemic. Clean and disinfect high-use and shared surfaces on a regular schedule (between use as much as possible). This can include tables, handles, and railings.

Restrooms can be a tricky area to manage too. You can limit the number of people who can use a restroom at the same time. Additionally, you can implement a six foot distance policy for any restroom lines. Make sure to regularly clean restrooms, and stock them with hand-washing supplies. Fortunately, companies like Moon Portable Restrooms can help you get the restrooms and sanitizing stations you need for a safer gathering.

Gathering layouts are important to consider as well. You can consider limiting gathering capacity or seating to enable more social distancing. You can also enforce distancing by creating distance between seats and putting distanced lines or other markers on the ground where lines may form.

If food is a part of your gathering, there are a few other important considerations. There is no evidence that the coronavirus can spread through food directly. However, sharing utensils and congregating in shared spaces to get or consume food can spread the disease. Disposable food service items like silverware and plates can be a safe option. Additionally, you should distance seating areas and clean them as much as possible. You should also avoid self-service dining.

Local context

The most important consideration for any outdoor gathering is the specific local context. At a basic level, the higher the level of community transmission in the place a gathering is held, the higher the risk of disease spread is at the gathering. Every location is experiencing disease spread and impact in different ways, and different cities, counties, states, and countries have their own rules in response. You should always check specific guidance for where your gathering or event may be. That guidance will give you the best idea of specific do’s and don’ts, and whether having your event is allowable or responsible.

Press Release: How Moon Portable Restrooms Has Stepped Up to Serve the City of Louisville, KY During the Covid-19 Crisis

Press Release

While local businesses across the city of Louisville and the state of Kentucky have been forced to close due to the coronavirus outbreak, Moon Portable Restrooms has found themselves to be busier than ever. Moon Portable Restrooms, led by BJ Davis, is a local business that supplies handwash stations, hand sanitizer stations, portable restrooms, flushable restrooms, and luxury restroom trailers to customers looking to host an outdoor event. While the city deals with an outbreak of Covid-19, Davis and his dedicated crew are providing their products and services in order to ensure that safe, sanitary stations are set up throughout the city for use by the public as well as other businesses that have been deemed essential.

“We are very fortunate to be an essential company,” Davis said when asked about the role his company and coworkers are playing in ensuring that the spread of the coronavirus slows throughout the city. However, Moon Portable Restrooms has been involved with the city in regards to supplying and setting up portable restrooms and handwashing stations long before coronavirus made its way to Louisville, KY. Due to Moon Portable Restrooms’ dedicated involvement with the city in years past, Davis was one of the first people that Louisville’s Emergency Management Agency called when it was apparent that the coronavirus was in Louisville and EMA needed all the resources they could gather to ensure that those less fortunate, and those who were still needed in their essential job roles, had the necessary resources to keep themselves clean as they went about their required duties.
