You probably don’t think about porta potties that often, and we can’t blame you. But when it comes to planning events, finding a place to go at a concert of your favorite band, or ensuring everyone has a place to go when they need to go, portable restrooms are incredibly important. At Sarabia’s Portable Johns and Blue Sanitation, we have a long line of portable johns that can make your next event perfect.
And for those days when you’re randomly thinking about portable restrooms, these five interesting facts about them might interest you to learn more!
Fact #1: Porta Potties Can be Traced Back to Shipyards in the 1940s
Isn’t that crazy? Portable restrooms can be traced back to shipyards during World War 2, where they were first implemented to give shipyard workers—of which there were many—a place to go. From there, their use continued to grow.
Fact #2: Porta Potties Have Some Odd Names
A porta potty can be called a portable restroom, sanican, honey bucket, water closet, porta loo, johnny on the spot, and so on. As you can see, people have gotten really creative with it…
Fact #3: Using Porta Potties At Events Saves 45 Billion Gallons of Water Each Year
When porta potties are used for huge events that host a lot of people (especially those that serve alcohol, a known diuretic), it can save lots of flushes and in turn, lots of billions of gallons of water each year. Crazy, right?
Fact #4: They Can Be Cleaner Than You Think
Portable restrooms are often regarded as some of the most disgusting places on the planet, but certain porta potties can actually be quite clean. For example, those that are equipped with hand sanitizer and a place to wash your hands are often much cleaner than ones that aren’t. On top of that, this perception can be swayed by those with deodorizers that help to keep the bad smells at bay.
