These Sinks Are a Must-Have for Outdoor Events This Year

Essential for everything from simple hand washing to food preparation, this unit is a must-have for any gathering that requires you to supply your own water. Here’s what you should know about these portable sanitation units.

All About Sink Trailers

A sink trailer is a portable unit that can hold up to 870 litres (230 gallons) of water. Each unit comes equipped with soap and paper towel dispensers and has eight stainless steel sinks, which can provide both hot and cold water. Our sink trailers run on 120 V outlets, and you have the option of renting a generator to power it from us or using your own.

When Do You Need a Sink Trailer?

Consider renting a sink trailer if you’re hosting an outdoor event with little to no access to running water. This can include but is not limited to:

  • wedding receptions,
  • family reunions,
  • neighbourhood block parties,
  • fundraisers
  • BBQs, and so much more!

Running water is necessary at any gathering, as guests must wash their hands regularly. Furthermore, soap and water can be used to wipe down any surfaces that may have been touched by multiple people, such as chairs or picnic tables. The Provincial Government of Ontario is now allowing larger gatherings to take place so, if you’re planning on hosting, make sure running water is available at all times and check in with your local municipal bylaws for more great safety advice.

Safety First

If you’re planning an event, your guests’ safety should be at the forefront of your mind. You can still throw the party of the year while abiding by the rules laid out by the government. Renting a sink trailer is a great start, as it allows for frequent hand washing and for surfaces to be cleaned often. Be sure to enforce physical distancing and have your guests take turns when going to get food and washing their hands at the sink trailer. It’s also recommended that you encourage everyone to wear masks — an exception can be made when eating, of course. Enjoy the company of your family and friends, while staying safe and healthy.
