Leach Drain Supply and Install Perth-Boddington- Bannister-Harvey-Lake Clifton
What is a Leach Drain? It is a Tube like structure which is either made of concrete or plastic which has holes in the sides and buried in the ground. Pre treated effluent flows by gravity or pumped to a leach field for disposal. Waste water is absorbed by soil particles and moves both Horizontally and Vertically through soil pore.
Difference between Plastic and Concrete.
Concrete leach drains come in precast modular of mostly 1.2 metre lengths standard or traffic, standard is usually for back yards where there is no vehicles or heavy items travelling over them, traffic leach drains are used where vehicles will drive over them. Concrete leach drains can last up to 30-40 years or longer depending on the PH level balance in the soil, maintence and the pumping. Even though they might be a bit more expensive they are value for money in the long run, will not spilt or collapse.
Plastic leach drains are a cheaper alternative but will not last as long as concrete leach drains, more chances of splitting or collapsing if they are not installed correctly, different suppliers have variety of quality plastic leach drains, they come in kit forms to assemble in cube like form, you can purchase trafficable leach drains for under driveways.
