    Leach drains are installed to support septic tank systems. They are tube-like boxes made of concrete or plastic and have openings on its sides, which enable water to soak the surrounding ground. When wastewater travels through the septic tank system, solid waste sinks to the bottom to undergo bacterial digestion, while the liquid flows out out of the container to the leach drain and into the soil.

    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 secure the drain and keep particles away. This will help in protecting against obstructions and makes leach drains maintenance even more challenging than it is.

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