Local Services, LLC - Portable Bathroom Rentals

Porta Potty Frequently Asked Questions:

What is the blue stuff in a Porta Potty?
Portable toilets often use a smell-reducing chemical (deodorizer) in the holding tank. This chemical is typically blue so that when it interacts with enough urine and feces, it turns green. This green color is an indication that the chemicals are no longer effective in preventing odors.
When was the first portable toilet invented?
Who Invented It, history.
The first Porta Potty was created by George Harding in 1940 for people who worked on boats. In the 1950’s the First Porta Potties were made out of wood and metal. in the 1970’s fiber glass replace wood and metal and in 1980 plastic took over.
