Looking After Your Portable Toilets In Winter
Most associate portable toilets with summer. Think music festivals and other sunshine filled events. Despite this assumption, portable toilets are still used throughout the colder months. While the winter weather may bring a variety of fun activities such as ice skating and sledding, it can also bring a number of issues for portable toilets. Thankfully, with just a few adjustments, you needn’t worry. So, if you’re planning on renting one of our portable toilets here at euroloo, check out our top tips below.
Is Your Portable Toilet Ready For Winter?
Ward Off The Freeze – the temperatures outside may be freezing but your portable toilet doesn’t need to be. If the liquid within the portable toilet freezes, it could pose a messy problem. Thankfully, here at euroloo, we add a non-toxic solution to ensure the fluid within the portable toilet doesn’t freeze. Couple this with correct placement and you’ll have no problem at all.
Ensure Frequent Servicing – servicing your toilet frequently is just good practice. In the winter, frequent servicing becomes essential to help prevent the units from freezing. Regular servicing will mean continued refilling of an anti-freeze solution and removal of waste that’s likely to freeze in real low temperatures.
Keep Them Warm – now while this may sound difficult, it needn’t be. We aren’t talking about placing them next to an open fire, just some simple strategic placement. Think wind shields and warmth. Look for brick walls and fencing that might provide relief from windy weather conditions and if possible, place next to somewhere that might offer some form of warmth. From muck heaps to walls of houses that might emit even the slightest little bit of warmth onto your toilet; even the slightest amount of warmth will help keep your portable toilet working throughout the coldest months.
Easy Access – winter brings not only cold temperatures but an endless supply of mud. Ensuring your guests/workforce have easy access to your portable toilets is essential. With any hint of ice or snow, make sure you salt the area completely. You may even want to consider grass mats or temporary slabs to create a slip free pathway to each toilet cubicle. Also consider the placement, for instance, you may want to keep them away from street corners to avoid them being ploughed in should snow fall become too heavy. This also prevents them from becoming inaccessible to users and our team when they need to be serviced.
