How Does A Leach Line Work?

The leach line, also referred to as a drain field or disposal area, takes the relatively “solids” free water called effluent from the septic tank and distributes it into the soil for final impurity and contaminate removal. Leach lines are generally constructed of perforated pipe installed at the upper part of a gravel filled trench. They come in many different configurations, lengths and depths. Your local governing entity will determine the appropriate size according to the soils composition.

JT's Septic does not do leach line repair at this time. Please contact a company on our referral list for leach line repairs.
