    Leach drains are installed to support septic tank systems. They are tube-like boxes made from concrete or plastic and have openings on its sides, which permit water to soak the surrounding ground. When wastewater travels through the septic tank system, solid waste sinks to the bottom to go through bacterial digestion, while the liquid flows out out of the storage tank to the leach drain and into the soil.

    A diverter valve links the leach drain to the septic tank. When the installation of the leach drain is complete, concrete pieces are typically made use of to secure the drain and keep particles away. This will help in protecting against blockages and makes leach drains maintenance a lot more hard than it is.

    A leach drain does not have a common dimension. Dobson Excavations uses the anticipated quantity of liquid waste and the type of soil as a guide when suggesting the very best leach drain dimension.

    Leach Drain Maintenance Baldivis

    • Pump and clean the septic tank of residue at the very least two times or three times a year. The pumping frequency will depend on the dimension of the storage tank, the size of your household, and the disposal rate.
    • Protect the septic tank system by avoiding the disposal of fabric softener, bleaches, heavy cleaning agents, and biocides into it. These create residue that can obstruct the septic tank system, and eventually affect the features of the leach drains Baldivis
