Unconventional Uses for a Portable Toilet
- Snow Transportation – A couple years ago, Rob Munce, owner of Go Time Restrooms in New Hampshire, and some friends attached skis to the bottom of a toilet. Munce proceeded to climb in and go for some rides down a hill. To see the setup, go to https://www.johntalk.com/ever-seen-a-porta-potty-on-skis/
- Rocket Ship – In 2014, Michiana Rocketry attached seven rockets to a unit and blasted it 1,129 feet in the air. The airborne potty, which was unmanned, reached 209 mph at one point. View the video of the flight at https://www.johntalk.com/watch-this-portable-toilet-fly/
- Secret Entrance – On more than one occasion, modified units have been used as secret entrances to group gatherings. In these examples shared on our Ask a PRO Forum, people walked through units to get to raves: https://www.johntalk.com/forums/topic/porta-potty-rave/ and https://www.johntalk.com/forums/topic/rave-in-a-porta-potty/
- Prank Prop – To no one’s surprise, portable toilets have been used to prank people for years. Here are a couple of our favorites we’ve come across: https://www.johntalk.com/heres-how-you-can-disappear-in-a-portable-restroom/ and https://www.johntalk.com/lifted-porta-potty-prank/
- Design Element – Outside-the-box thinkers have found unique ways to incorporate portable toilet parts, or even entire units, into designs. One example is the Fabuleux Chez Serge bar in Montréal, which used parts of units to create eye-grabbing entrances to the restrooms.
- Hunting Blind – Resourceful people have found that “retired” units make great hunting blinds. All they need is a couple windows and maybe a camouflage paint job.
