    Leach drains are installed to support septic tank systems. They are tube-like boxes made from concrete or plastic and have openings on its sides, which allow 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 drains out of the storage 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 slabs are typically made use of to seal the drain and keep debris away. This will aid in protecting against blockages and makes leach drains maintenance much more tough than it is.

    A leach drain doesn't have a common size. Dobson Excavations utilises the anticipated quantity of liquid waste and the type of dirt as a guide when suggesting the best leach drain size.
