Choosing The Right Portable Sink
There are many options to consider when choosing the right portable
sink for your specific application. Depending on where you plan to use
your portable handwashing station, the right product and brand can make
all the difference for getting the most out of your new portable sink.
PortableHandwashing.com makes finding the best sink easy with a wide
selection of styles and options from the industry's leading
manufacturers including: PolyJohn, Monsam, Crown Verity, and Jonti-Craft handwashing stations. Follow the information below to help find the
right portable sink for you.
1. Indoor or Outdoor:
The first option to consider when choosing a portable sink is to
decide where you will be using the unit. Do you need a portable sink for
outdoor use, or do you plan to use your handwashing station in the
indoor? It's important to note that any portable sink that can be placed
outside/made with the outdoors in mind can also be used for indoor use
(keep in mind this might not always be aesthetically pleasing). In
contrast, you wouldn't want to use a portable sink made specifically for
the indoors for outdoor usage. For outdoor use, there are two different
brands to consider: PolyJohn and Monsam. For many years PolyJohn's
PSW1-1000 has been the industry standard for handwashing. PolyJohn
outdoor portable sinks come with built in soap dispensers and paper
towel dispensers. Monsam portable sinks for outdoor use are a compact,
easy to transport option. Monsam portable sinks come in a wide variety
of style and sizes to best meet the needs for your application.
2. Do you need hot water?
The next option to think about is whether or not you need hot water
for handwashing. Although there is a common misconception that hot water
works better to get bacteria off your hands compared to cold water, the
hot water actually needed to kill bacteria would actually be way too
hot to becomfortable for use in terms ofhandwashing.However, with
that being said warm water is often times a preferred option for
handwashing – all Jonti-Craft
sinks come standard with on-demand hot water systems. On the other
hand, not all portable sinks come with hotwater options – keep an eye
out for the warm water logo oneach of the individual PolyJohn, Monsam and Crown Verity portablehand wash stations product pages.
3. Who will be using the portable sink?
Consider who will be using the portable sink. Both Monsam and Jonti-Craft have speciallydesigned children's height portable hand wash sinks. These units are a great option to bring handwashing to classrooms, daycares and other areas where children are present. For food service, consider the stainless steel constructed Crown Verity sink. These mobile hand wash stations are an industry favorite for portable washing for everything food service and catering related. For the biggest variation of sink dimensions and water tank capacities, consider Monsam portable sinks.
4. Choose a portable sink category:
Lastly, let the categories provided within PortableHandwashing.com help you – choose between our portable sink categories including: Indoor, Outdoor, Daycare & Kids, Food Service, Commercial, Health & Beauty, by brand and lastly (and a little off topic) Hand Sanitizer Stations.
