If you need a portable toilet or shower for your New Year’s party, book it now

If you’re planning a bash to see in 2017, depending on the location you may want to think about the facilities, especially when your guests are knocking back the Tizer like it’s going out of fashion.

When we’re quoting our events clients who are expecting hundreds or even thousands of visitors to their event, we always ask if there will be alcohol served as this increases demand on toilet facilities.

There’s still time to arrange a portable toilet for an event at home or on a larger scale.

We’ll discuss you needs, make our recommendations and then you can relax in the knowledge that you’ve catered the perfect party. One where there’s no loo queue.

If you’re organising say a rugger event where the lads outnumber the lasses, we’ve urinal units. Our 6 bay even comes in its own little tent.

The Tardis crew will be operating nationwide at normal capacity until 5 o’clock on Friday 23rd of December, when it’ll be time to put on the glad rags and party with the rest of you.

Of course, we still have the emergency cover, but for things like toilet hire, we do suggest you arrange your delivery well in advance so everything is in place and all you have to do is PARTY HARD.

One of our hire desk girls was curious when talking to a Scots client.

“Is anything worn under the kilt” she enquired.

“Nay, it’s all in working order” came the reply.

Winter preventive maintenance

 Winter preventive maintenance  an ounce of prevention…

frosty

Who’s had to scrape the frost off their vehicles more than once this week?

December 1st marks the first day of the meteorological winter.

We thought it timely to remind those of you with water storage on site that’s aided by on demand pumps that it’s time to do some winter preventive maintenance to save inconvenience and damage to the pump.

If the temperature falls to 1 Celsius or below, you should take the pump out of service. Remove it from the water supply line, drain it and store it in a warm environment (indoors) until the temperature rises again.

When it comes to water pipework, we recommend lagging to minimise the chances of pipework freezing up. The pipework we use on site is 25mm dia and so 27-19mm lagging is ideal for the purpose.

Pipework will begin to freeze at around -2 degrees c. Pumps as mentioned earlier can be boxed in, but make sure the box has some ventilation.

Lagging should be applied to the whole pipework route, from the exit point of the bowser past the pump and into the cabin or appliance.

Bowsers themselves will rarely freeze to the point of being rendered useless due to the large body of water inside them.

Don’t be tempted to add anything to the water. You risk not only diminishing the quality of the water in your system and damaging the pipework and pump.

We publish a number of guides on maintaining and priming on demand pumps and the links are below. These can be downloaded in PDF.
