    Leach drains are installed to support septic tank systems. They are tube-like boxes constructed from concrete or plastic and have openings on its sides, which allow water to soak the surrounding ground. When wastewater passes through the septic tank system, solid waste sinks to the bottom to go through bacterial digestion, while the fluid drains out of the storage tank to the leach drain and into the dirt.

    A diverter valve connects 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 debris at bay. This will assist in protecting against blockages and makes leach drains maintenance a lot more tough than it is.

    A leach drain doesn't have a common size. Dobson Excavations uses the expected amount of fluid waste and the type of dirt as a guide when advising the most effective leach drain size.
