Preventing Drainage Problems from Affecting Reputations of Dutch Restaurants


Sewage outfallThe plumbing and sewerage industry in The Netherlands has made rendering drainage relining (riolering relinen) an important service for Dutch restaurants. After all, the country has an enviable reputation of being home to 125 highly prestigious Michelin-rated restaurants.

Clogged drainages and backing up sewer systems are venue issues that should never happen in such highly-esteemed businesses.

A Brief Look at the Dutch Restaurant and Takeaway Food Industry

RestaurntThe Dutch restaurant and takeaway food industry has been flourishing year after year. Latest reports have it that the market size of the Restaurants & Takeaway Food Industry has been growing steadily at an average rate of 1.5% annually, from 2018 up to the present. Latest count as of early 2023 is that there are 40,116 restaurants and takeaway food businesses operating in urban Dutch areas.

That being the case, the builders of drainage and plumbing systems, particularly those relied upon to ensure that waste matters and waste waters will be carried away properly to treatment facilities, should understand that the quality of their work can impact the reputation of restaurants.

Owners, chefs and staff members work hard to impress not only Michelin inspectors but more importantly, the customers. Actually, the plumbing companies and professionals in The Netherlands use modern methods and equipment in unblocking clogged drainages and pipes to provide fast and effective solutions

How Do Dutch Plumbers Reline Faulty Plumbing Systems?

Plumbing companies start by first conducting an inspection using a high-tech camera with typical long and flexible probes capable of providing interior views .

High-pressure sewer cleaning equipment and powerful cleaning machines will be used in preparing the pipes for the relining process.
The actual relining starts once the pipe has been thoroughly cleaned. After doing so, a flexible sleeve filled with resin will be placed inside the pipe along with a UV heat initiator. The resin will gradually react to the heat produced by the UV initiator. The heat applies as treatment in curing in place of the flexible resin. The cured-in-place pipe will then serve as the replacement of the damaged pipe.

Relining is the modern technology widely used by plumbing companies in many countries because the process eliminates the need to dig deep holes just to get to the bottom of the plumbing problem. In addition, it’s a very cost effective solution since the cost of relining is eight times lower than the traditional method of pipe repair. However, if the standard procedures prescribed in the application and cure of resins are not followed, the results could be disastrous. The resin could produce bubbles containing noxious gas that are liable to rise and spread to the surface as toxic fumes.
