    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 enable water to soak the surrounding ground. When wastewater passes through the septic tank system, solid waste sinks to the bottom to undergo 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 usually made use of to seal the drain and keep particles at bay. This will aid in protecting against obstructions and makes leach drains maintenance even more tough than it is.

    A leach drain doesn't have a common dimension. Dobson Excavations utilises the anticipated amount of fluid waste and the kind of dirt as a guide when suggesting the very best leach drain dimension.
