A Princely Porta Potty

Random Images

 

Seen at Saturday’s horse show [Spontaneous Showing].

The diagonal seat is genius. It is one of those ‘Duh, why didn’t anyone think of this before?’ moments. As you see in the photo, the seat of the portable toilet is set on the diagonal, creating more space for one’s legs.

I did not have the presence of mind to take photos of any identifying marks. Therefore, I do not know the brand. The show management rented it from Rankin Septic. In researching this post, I was surprise to find out that porta potty is not a trademarked name, Porta Potty? Porta John®? Porta Loo®? Portable Toilets!

The other neat tip I’ve seen recently was to leave a pump-top bottle of sanitizer in the box. What can I say, I’ve seen a lot of porta potties from the inside [Seated Perspective].

Update: It is a Tuff Jon III made by The TSF Company, Evansville, Indiana, USA.

Thank you for reading,

  1. It is surprising (but probably shouldn’t be) just how big an effect the quality of these things can have on an event. I will quite happily use the state of the loos as points for or against a music festival. Loving the sideways seat.

  2. I’ve been to a few outdoor/location weddings the last few years where the Porta Potty (stated generically here) put my own powder room to shame. Yes, seriously. I guess they have to make them in all sizes, but the wedding ones seem to be exceptionally huge. I’m assuming of course, that is because at some point it will probably have to accommodate the bride, her gown and possibly even an attendant, should the situation warrant the need. And the amenities found inside appear to have cleaned out the local pharmacy and are stocked to handle any type of emergency. Several even sported a fill length mirror and sink.

  3. I could see that how an event handles the toilet situation would give a hint about budget and organization in other areas. Toilets are basic. If they can’t handle that, what is going on elsewhere?
