    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 permit water to soak the surrounding ground. When wastewater passes through the septic tank system, solid waste sinks to the bottom to undertake microbial digestion, while the liquid drains out of the storage tank 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 commonly used to secure the drain and keep debris away. This will aid in protecting against obstructions and makes leach drains maintenance much more challenging than it is.
