    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 travels through the septic tank system, solid waste sinks to the bottom to go through bacterial 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 commonly made use of to seal the drain and keep particles at bay. This will help in preventing blockages and makes leach drains maintenance a lot more hard than it is.

    A leach drain doesn't have a standard size. Dobson Excavations uses the anticipated quantity of liquid waste and the type of soil as a guide when advising the most effective leach drain size.
