Peter Aschwanden, illustrator of the classic How to Keep Your Volkswagen Alive, did the informative and witty drawings in The Septic System Owner’s Manual.
The Septic System Owner’s Manual
This is a revised edition of our handbook and guide to the basics of septic systems. The book covers, in addition to septic tanks and drainfields, septic system maintenance, what to do if things go wrong, and advanced systems such as shallow drainfields, effluent filters, and trickling bio‑filters — includes chapters on graywater systems, composting toilets, and a unique history of water-borne waste disposal.
This is the only comprehensive, non-technical book on septic systems available for homeowners.
