3 Ways to Keep Your Portable Toilets Cool in the Heat of Summer

porta potties

Two words: it’s hot. El Paso, like the rest of the nation, is experiencing a wave of heat. While the majority of us will avoid spending any time outdoors, some of us have little choice given our occupations, or we enjoy the outdoors so long as there’s shade, and we’ve lathered on the SPF.  We completely understand the need to take extra precaution when it’s hot outside. This includes securing the temperature inside porta potties and making them a comfortable place to go, despite the conditions outdoors. For that reason, we’ve compiled a list of tips for keeping your porta potties cool even in the peak of summer.  

1. Place Porta Potties in a Shaded Area

Placement is everything when it comes to portable restrooms. It is important to note, however, that porta potties are made from a material that can withstand sunlight known as Polyurethane. Polyurethane contains a material that protects it from melting even when heated known as a thermosetting polymer. This means they are naturally protected from the heat. What can make a difference is the duration they spend in direct sunlight and the extreme temperatures such as high 100s. For that reason, you want to place them in a shaded area. Doing so will help keep the temperature inside down.  

2. Pay Attention to the Wind 

El Paso is no stranger to the wind, even in the summer. The Sun City has practically become the Windy City. Since we’re never quite sure when a wind storm will make its way to our part of town, it’s always best to place the entrance of the portable toilets in the direction facing away from the wind. This way you can help keep the hot air out. There are times when the wind can play to your advantage but it depends on the severity of the wind. Nice natural blowing air will help porta potties feeling cooler than if there was no wind coming through. However, when the wind is extreme, it can cause the portable toilet to shake or move. Not to worry—our team will always recommend the best placement on your site! 

3. Upgrade to the VIP Trailer

If you’re hosting a special event such as a quinceñera, wedding, or anniversary party, you may want to consider upgrading to our VIP portable restroom trailer. These types of occasions deserve special treatment given their significance. Plus, your guests will appreciate the comfort of having a place to go when they’re dressed in their Sunday Best. You will also find that given their insulation, our trailers feel cool.
