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

    A diverter valve links the leach drain to the septic tank. When the installation of the leach drain is complete, concrete pieces are commonly made use of to secure the drain and keep debris at bay. This will aid in protecting against blockages and makes leach drains maintenance much more tough than it is.

    A leach drain does not have a standard dimension. Dobson Excavations uses the expected amount of liquid waste and the kind of dirt as a guide when advising the best leach drain dimension.
