They are tube-like boxes constructed from concrete or plastic and have openings on its sides, which enable water to soak the surrounding ground.

    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 debris away. This will aid in protecting against obstructions and makes leach drains maintenance even more hard than it is.
