    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 enable water to soak the surrounding ground. When wastewater travels through the septic tank system, solid waste sinks to the bottom to go through microbial digestion, while the liquid flows out out of the container to the leach drain and right 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 particles at bay. This will aid in protecting against obstructions and makes leach drains maintenance a lot more challenging than it is.
