    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 allow water to soak the surrounding ground. When wastewater travels through the septic tank system, solid waste sinks to the bottom to undergo microbial digestion, while the liquid drains out of the container to the leach drain and right into the soil.

    A diverter valve links the leach drain to the septic tank. When the installation of the leach drain is complete, concrete slabs are usually used to secure the drain and keep particles at bay. This will help in protecting against blockages and makes leach drains maintenance a lot more difficult than it is.

    A leach drain does not have a standard dimension. Dobson Excavations utilises the expected amount of liquid waste and the type of soil as a guide when recommending the most effective leach drain dimension.

    Leach Drain Maintenance Jarrahdale
