    Leach drains are installed to support septic tank systems. They are tube-like boxes made from concrete or plastic and have openings 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 go through microbial digestion, while the liquid drains out of the container to the leach drain and right into the dirt.

    A diverter valve connects 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 away. This will help in protecting against obstructions and makes leach drains maintenance much more difficult than it is.

    A leach drain doesn't have a standard size. Dobson Excavations uses the anticipated quantity of liquid waste and the type of dirt as a guide when advising the best leach drain size.
