    Leach drains are installed to support septic tank systems. They are tube-like boxes made of 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 undertake microbial digestion, while the fluid flows out out of the container 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 pieces are typically utilised to secure the drain and keep debris at bay. This will help in preventing obstructions and makes leach drains maintenance much more challenging than it is.

    A leach drain does not have a standard dimension. Dobson Excavations makes use of the expected amount of fluid waste and the kind of dirt as a guide when suggesting the most effective leach drain dimension.
