Geometric Network or No Geometric Network?

I have a Feature Dataset containing separate Feature Classes for pipes, valves, and demands (customers, for lack of a better word). The topology is error free. flow direction is set correctly. I know I can easily generate a geometric network and then create a schematic.

But, I have 78 different piping systems within our Wastewater Treatment Plant in this and other Feature Datasets that I need to generate schematics for. Each piping system must be their own separate schematic. All of our Feature Classes have correct topology and flow direction. We do not need a geometric network at this point.

Can I generate a schematic of a piping system showing pipes, valves, and demands without a geometric network? OR must a schematic be generated from a geometric network? are there any problems I might encounter if I generate a schematic from a piping system that is not a geometric network?
