Septic system drawings: Here are some sketches explaining septic system components and installations. These septic system illustrations help readers understand, identify, and possibly even locate buried onsite wastewater disposal and septic tank equipment at properties. Some of the illustrations also show why septic systems, particularly drainfields may not be working. These drawings are for educational purposes and are not engineering plans or specifications. The septic consultants who are listed at SEPTIC CONSULTANTS can provide that service for both traditional and alternative onsite waste disposal system designs. Click on the thumbnail sketches below to see each full-sized illustration. This website is provided as a non-profit public educational service - intended for on-line study.
