    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 permit water to soak the surrounding ground. When wastewater travels through the septic tank system, solid waste sinks to the bottom to undergo microbial digestion, while the liquid drains out of the storage tank to the leach drain and into the soil.

    A diverter valve connects the leach drain to the septic tank. When the installation of the leach drain is complete, concrete pieces are usually used to seal the drain and keep particles away. This will assist in protecting against blockages and makes leach drains maintenance a lot more hard than it is.

    A leach drain does not have a standard size. Dobson Excavations utilises the expected amount of liquid waste and the kind of soil as a guide when suggesting the best leach drain size.
