For anyone with a portable toilet business that operates where the temperatures drop below freezing, brine is a winter essential. Brine prevents the waste and water in toilet tanks from freezing, which would not only make servicing units impossible but also could damage the units.
While brine-mixing equipment is commercially available, portable restroom operators (PROs) are innovators and problem-solvers. It’s common for them to develop their own solutions suited to their unique situations.
One type of mixing station consists of a mixing/holding tank that contains the water and rock salt. An agitator or auger is used to mix the brine solution. Other setups, like the one shown below, consist of multiple tanks connected with PVC pipe or hoses and a pump to circulate the brine mixture.
