While digging in his garden, Tony Huisman learned something he never knew about the property he’d lived in for six years. After a little while of digging, he hit something solid beneath the dirt. It turns out, his shovel was hitting what he thought was a concrete box. Digging some more, Tony was finally able to lift the cover off the box…only to be greeted with a smell that was beyond ungodly. It turns out, that concrete box was a septic tank…and he didn’t even know he had a septic system. Since the landlord before him didn’t know it either, it’s a safe bet that it had been at least eight years since that septic tank had been pumped out, making its contents a lovely thick gelatinous mess that was pungent to say the least. Fortunately, things have since been handled and the plumbing is back to working as it should.
