Hand Washing With Portable Toilets
Portable toilets are an invaluable facility for the disabled, elderly and those with disabilities that visit many public facilities on a regular basis. They are convenient because most are foldable and can be transported from place to place easily and without the need of a lift. They are also cost effective and help reduce litter, as well as keep your surrounding floor or tile clean. Many people with disabilities find it difficult to access and use toilets on regular public restrooms. This can make the disabled person feel isolated and alone and can negatively affect their daily living.
A portable restroom consists of a toilet, a sink, and either a lavatory or a urinal. A portable or mobility toilet is any kind of toilet which can be manually moved about, some easily by one individual, some by remote control, or both. Most models are completely self contained and don’t require any ongoing services, like sewage disposal. However, if they do need some help, most models come with a small hand sanitizer spray built-in, and others have a small cup of water, like your running water from the shower, that can be used instead.
The most common problem with portable toilets is that they can’t meet the needs of everyone who might be using them. The toilet seat depth must be comfortable for the person who will be sitting on it. A deep seat that leaves little to no room for legs or feet may cause muscle strain and discomfort. If you are someone who is wheelchair bound, or if you suffer from any kind of chronic health condition, you may want to look for a model that features a back rest, or even a padded seat for added comfort. If you plan to store your toilet in a location where temperature and humidity can be a problem, you may want to choose a model that comes with a deodorant tank, or has an exhaust fan that will blow air through the system and remove the unpleasant smell.
Portable Toilets also come in a variety of sizes. Smaller portable toilets are ideal for home use, while larger models can accommodate more people in a household. Porta-potties come in a wide variety of shapes, including: quadrant, shallow bowl, elongated triangle, or even bowls with an upright bass and a special holder for holding up to 12 cans at once. Some models have a special holder made of flexible plastic that allows you to insert a paper towel or bottle filled with sanitizer and wipe down the inside of the holding tank. You can also find portable toilets that have a handheld flush lever, which is great for quickly and easily disposing of your used waste. Many portable toilets also have a waste chamber that can hold a multitude of products, like newspapers, sponges, and more.
Although portable toilets are an excellent convenience, they do require more careful handling than their counterparts. A popular method of cleaning portable toilets is to fill the holding tank up with water and then flush it down the toilet. Although this sounds simple, it can be very dangerous if the nozzle that holds the waste spray isn’t positioned properly or if the spray doesn’t go down the drain in the same order as it arrived. The best way to ensure that the water goes down the drain in the same order as it came is to install a seat-lift in your restroom. Seat-lifts, which can also be used in traditional restrooms, are designed to keep the nozzle out of the reach of children and animals, and seat lifts can be installed on either side of the restroom door to make sure that the waste doesn’t spray down onto neighboring rooms or into another restroom.
Because portable toilets are becoming more popular, many manufacturers are producing counter-top versions of the portable toilet. Counter-top toilets, also called “porta-potty” fixtures, usually have a wider base and a handle for easier lifting. Some counter-top toilets even include a tray attached to the wall that you can pull down to clean behind the porta potty. Because these toilets are cheaper than traditional porta potty fixtures, they are a good choice for many homes. Even if you have a limited amount of space, you may want to consider purchasing one for easier hand washing.
