“I was doing some gardening in my backyard today, and I uncovered some sort of crazy, secret concrete box in the ground,” Huisman said, panning the camera to the dug-up, grassy ground.
Unearthing a rectangular metal box a few feet top, the TikToker lifted up the two heavy handles with a little help pry bar – to reveal a stinky surprise.
“It was my septic tank!” Huisman exclaimed, coughing and gagging as he flipped the camera to himself.

“Me watching this: ‘Don’t open that. Don’t open that. No no don’t open that,’” one wrote.
“Umm I think it wasn’t treasure,” another joked.
“As a plumber I knew immediately,” one said.
“At least you didn’t have to spend $500 just for them to locate it like I did,” another teased.
In follow-up footage, Huisman clarified that there was more to the story in a video viewed over 400,000 ties.
“Okay, so I actually did need to dig up the septic tank because it needed to be pumped. I just thought I would make a video out of it,” he confessed. “So yesterday, everything in the house suddenly stopped draining, like completely blocked.”
Calling a plumber, Huisman said the professional asked when the last time the septic tank was pumped.
“What! We didn’t know we were on a septic system. I have lived here for 6 years… so who knows how long it’s been since it’s been cleaned!” he speculated. “The dumb part isn’t that I didn’t know there was a septic tank – I knew there was a septic tank and I was digging it out on purpose. The dumb part is that none of us knew we were on a septic system!”
