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.
