    Leach drains are installed to support septic tank systems. They are tube-like boxes constructed from concrete or plastic and have holes on its sides, which enable water to soak the surrounding ground. When wastewater passes through the septic tank system, solid waste sinks to the bottom to undertake bacterial digestion, while the fluid drains out of the storage tank to the leach drain and right into the dirt.

    A diverter valve connects the leach drain to the septic tank. When the installation of the leach drain is complete, concrete slabs are commonly made use of to seal the drain and keep particles away. This will aid in protecting against obstructions and makes leach drains maintenance a lot more hard than it is.

    A leach drain does not have a common size. Dobson Excavations uses the anticipated amount of fluid waste and the kind of dirt as a guide when advising the most effective leach drain size.
