    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 allow water to soak the surrounding ground. When wastewater passes through the septic tank system, solid waste sinks to the bottom to go through microbial digestion, while the liquid drains out of the container to the leach drain and right into the soil.

    A diverter valve connects the leach drain to the septic tank. When the installation of the leach drain is complete, concrete pieces are typically utilised to seal the drain and keep debris at bay. This will assist in protecting against obstructions and makes leach drains maintenance even more challenging than it is.

    A leach drain does not have a standard size. Dobson Excavations utilises the anticipated amount of liquid waste and the kind of soil as a guide when suggesting the best leach drain size.
