Life as a solar photovoltaic (PV) systems installer can be physically demanding as it involves carrying power tools and solar panels and multiple trips up and down a ladder to reach the roof. Because finding optimal placement is critical, it also typically means working on a hot, sunny day.
The job involves ensuring efficient installation and electrical configuration by measuring, cutting, assembling, installing, and maintaining solar modules following codes and standards. Therefore, work as a solar installer could mean long days.
At some point, nature will call, and you will have to make another trip down the ladder. But what if the homeowner says you can’t use their facilities for personal reasons or the nearest bathroom at a gas station is a drive away?
The Benefits of Bringing a Portable Lavatory System on the Job
Solar PV installers typically work as part of a team; when one member has to stop work to go to the bathroom, the whole team may have to pause and wait for them to do their business. If the nearest running toilet is a walk or a drive away, this means no work gets done until that person returns.
Now imagine if this happens each time someone on the team needs to pee or poop. Do the math, and you’ll discover how much time and money you’re losing to bathroom breaks because workers have to travel so far to find a running toilet.
By keeping a portable lavatory system in your truck, your crew will always have a restroom at hand. With the Brief Relief Lavatory System, your team has a privacy shelter, a commode, and a supply of portable Waste Bags.
Knowing you don’t have to not only climb down from the roof but leave the job site just to find the nearest bathroom allows your team to concentrate on the job, increasing productivity, and minimizing downtime.
Having a portable bathroom system on hand also helps eliminate any legal issues created by someone on your team who relieves themselves where they shouldn’t. A member of your group may think no one’s looking when they sneak into the homeowner’s backyard and urinates in a corner. All it takes is a call to the authorities from a neighbor who happens to be looking out the window at that exact moment.
When you bring your own bathroom solution, there’s no need to ask the homeowner if you can use their facilities and no need to leave the site to find the nearest bathroom. And there’s absolutely no need to pee or defecate on the client’s property and put your company’s reputation at risk.
The privacy shelter sets up in a snap. When you need to go, line the commode with a Disposa-John Waste Bag and do your business as you normally would. Once you’re done, remove the waste bag and seal it closed. Because all Brief Relief Waste Bags feature a triple bag design and are made of non-toxic materials, they’re leak-proof, puncture-resistant, and safe enough to throw away in any regular trash can.
