Safely Handling Wastewater: Holding Tanks for Portable Toilets

Restrooms in a house or other building have an advantage: their wastewater drains straight into the city sewage system. This ensures that the homeowner is spared the potentially hazardous work of handling wastewater themselves. Unfortunately, port-a-potties can’t connect to a conventional sewage system. They rely on sturdy portable holding tanks to safely hold and transport wastewater.

Any event or location that relies on portable toilets will also rely on holding tanks for sanitary waste storage. If you can’t drain your restroom directly into a sewage system, the next best option is to keep the wastewater in a secure septic tank for transport to a dumping station. Let’s take a closer look at when you may need a holding tank and how we safely dispose of wastewater.

Portable restrooms don’t connect to a conventional septic system, so we use a different strategy to safely handle and dispose of gray water. Read about our method here. #FirstClassRentals

Practical Applications

Holding tanks are designed to securely hold toilet waste or dirty shower water until it can be safely processed. But no portable restroom trailer can get by with only a waste tank. Two types of tanks are available for your rental: waste tanks and clean water storage tanks to keep the showers, toilets, and sinks running. Your clean water will be stored in a sterile environment until you need it.

Pro Tip: In regions with a high water table or drainage issues, using a wastewater storage tank is a very effective way to prevent dirty liquids from contaminating the ground.
