    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 permit water to soak the surrounding ground. When wastewater passes 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 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 usually utilised to secure the drain and keep debris at bay. This will help in preventing blockages and makes leach drains maintenance much more challenging than it is.

    A leach drain does not have a standard size. Dobson Excavations uses the anticipated quantity of liquid waste and the kind of dirt as a guide when advising the most effective leach drain size.
