    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 permit water to soak the surrounding ground. When wastewater passes through the septic tank system, solid waste sinks to the bottom to go through bacterial digestion, while the liquid flows out out of the tank to the leach drain and 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 utilised to seal the drain and keep particles at bay. This will assist in preventing blockages and makes leach drains maintenance much more challenging than it is.

    A leach drain doesn't have a standard size. Dobson Excavations uses the expected quantity of liquid waste and the type of dirt as a guide when suggesting the very best leach drain size.
