When an international Fortune 200 manufacturer of paints, coatings and specialty products experienced a water main break during a scheduled outage, Porta Kleen hurried to the scene of the company’s Ohio resins manufacturing plant to establish temporary infrastructure and keep the outage timeline intact.

Porta Kleen’s emergency response team arrived on-site within hours to survey the situation, assess the needs of the outage personnel and determine the appropriate mobile solutions to meet the challenge.


Porta Kleen was uniquely qualified to respond to this problem.

The Porta Kleen team developed a comprehensive plan to overcome the situation and maintain the outage timeline continuity. Porta Kleen Operations worked with the plant personnel to determine the estimated duration of the repairs to the water mainline and how that coincided with the outage plan. After evaluating the challenge, the team established its action plan and mobilized the necessary equipment. Porta Kleen dispatched three of its 53-foot Locker Room Shower Trailers and three of its 53-foot, 16-stall Mobile Shower Trailers to six locations across the plant. Onboard fresh water reservoirs, wastewater holding tanks and diesel generators allowed the units to be placed exactly where they were needed most. Porta Kleen also handled all transportation and disposal of the wastewater. Once the Porta Kleen team addressed the client’s shower and restroom needs, outage work continued unimpeded.


The plant maintained normal operations throughout the process, saving countless man-hours and revenue that would have been lost during a protracted shutdown. Porta Kleen reported zero safety issues during the process and followed the proper safety precautions consistent with the site’s policies. Plant managers were thrilled with the results and commended the Porta Kleen Operations team on the fast response time and seamless solutions.

In addition to the Locker Room Shower Trailer and the 16-stall Shower Trailers, Porta Kleen offers a number of other mobile shower solution options.
