Three Events that Require Portable Restrooms

written on August 11, 2019

Do you know if the event you’re holding is going to have the restroom facilities that meet your needs? You’d be surprised to learn just how quickly the existing facilities might prove to be inadequate for your needs. In these cases, it might be a smart idea to consider getting extra restroom facilities so you don’t have to worry about your guests or event attendees needing to go out of their way to find a restroom.

Here are three types of events that you may not realize could benefit from a portable restroom or two.

  • Weddings
  • Movie Sets
  • Community Events


While many people choose to get married at a venue that’s tailored to handle all sorts of events, such as the clubhouse at a local golf course or a banquet hall in a restaurant, some people choose to go a road less traveled and seek somewhere that’s more atypical and unique. While this might give you the experience you’ve always dreamed of on your big day, these less-typical options sometimes don’t have the facilities needed to host upwards of 100 people or more.

If your facility has either no available restrooms, restrooms that aren’t easily accessible, or simply not enough restrooms to support the number of guests you have, your big celebration could include a long, agonizing wait for some of your guests. A few portable restrooms are often a good idea, and you could even consider booking a celebrity restroom trailer if you have running water and electricity available.


I worked with Nikki from Patriot Portable Restrooms, and they were very professional! their service was fast and efficient. We had no problems with them at all. I would recommend 100x over! Thank you for making our event run smoothly and efficiently for our guests.

Movie Sets

Film sets are known for long hours of hard work to get the shots just right. If shots are particularly difficult, days can drag on for as many as 16 to 20 hours, which means both cast and crew are going to need a place to use the restroom. However, many movie sets are found way out in the middle of nowhere if the scene calls for it, and that means there certainly isn’t going to be an installed restroom around for anyone to use.

Whether you’re shooting in the middle of downtown San Diego or way out in the California desert, you’ll need easily-accessible restrooms for your cast and crew, and Patriot Portable Restrooms can provide you with just that. Whether your shoot is as little as one day or as long as several months, we can develop an ideal portable restroom solution that fits your needs.

On top of that, many VIPs such as main cast members, directors, producers, and more won’t want to use a standard porta-potty during your shoot. This is yet another application where a celebrity restroom trailer is an ideal solution, providing air conditioning, running water, and flushing toilets for added comfort and convenience.

Parking Lot or Community Park Events

Do you own a business in San Diego? What about run a non-profit such as an animal shelter? Parking lot or community park events such as tent sales, pet adoption fairs, or food truck nights are a great way to drum up excitement and even a way for businesses to work together to bring in more traffic to everyone. However, in many cases customers and attendees may need a restroom. If you don’t have a publically available one or there are too few public restrooms nearby, that could be a problem.

If you’re trying to bring people in for an event, particularly one involving food and drink or one which attendees may spend more than a few hours at, providing a temporary restroom facility that’s within reasonable distance of the event can keep long lines to a minimum and prevent people from having to leave early just to find a restroom.
