    Leach drains are installed to support septic tank systems. They are tube-like boxes made of 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 bacterial digestion, while the fluid drains out of the 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 usually used to seal the drain and keep particles away. This will aid in protecting against obstructions and makes leach drains maintenance much more hard than it is.

    A leach drain doesn't have a common dimension. Dobson Excavations makes use of the anticipated amount of fluid waste and the kind of dirt as a guide when advising the best leach drain dimension.
