    Leach drains are installed to support septic tank systems. They are tube-like boxes made of concrete or plastic and have openings on its sides, which permit water to soak the surrounding ground. When wastewater passes through the septic tank system, solid waste sinks to the bottom to undergo microbial digestion, while the liquid drains out of the tank 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 usually made use of to secure the drain and keep debris at bay. This will help in protecting against obstructions and makes leach drains maintenance much more tough than it is.

    A leach drain doesn't have a standard dimension. Dobson Excavations makes use of the expected quantity of liquid waste and the type of soil as a guide when recommending the very best leach drain dimension.

The result will be a foul odour which will ultimately get to the surface.

    Leach Drain Maintenance Calista

    • Pump and clean the septic tank of deposit at the very least twice or three times a year. The pumping frequency will depend upon the dimension of the tank, the size of your household, and the disposal rate.
