    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 microbial digestion, while the fluid flows out out of the container to the leach drain and 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 used to secure the drain and keep particles away. This will help in protecting against obstructions and makes leach drains maintenance a lot more tough than it is.

    A leach drain does not have a standard dimension. Dobson Excavations makes use of the expected quantity of fluid waste and the type of dirt as a guide when advising the best leach drain dimension.
