Guy Thought He Found Hidden Treasure In His Yard, But It Turned Out To Be Septic Tank

Huisman was so confident that he had found something great, he filmed himself unburying and opening the box.

If you’re familiar with TikTok, you’ve probably seen the stories going around of people making all sorts of amazing discoveries. Some people find hidden treasures in their attics or basements, others discover whole apartments behind their bathroom mirrors. One man thought he was onto an amazing discovery, but what he discovered made his stomach churn.

Tony Huisman was gardening in his backyard when his shovel hit concrete below the grass. Unsure what to expect, Tony continued to dig and found a concrete handle attached to some kind of box.

As he continued to dig, he unveiled a second handle. Finally, he had enough of the box clear to attempt to open it. Unfortunately, his first attempt was a fail since it was too heavy to lift. Rather than admit defeat, he used a pry bar to lift the lid open.

“You’ll never believe what I found,” he wrote in the video. He quickly flips the camera to himself and appears to be distressed and gagging. “My septic tank,” he finished.

The treasure hunter actually managed to dig up his own septic system! On the bright side, he knows exactly where his septic tank is if he ever needs it in the future.
