Should I put Possum Carcasses in my Septic Tank?
Nope, In the old days when a new septic system was started up on a farm, a dead possum or sheep was sometimes thrown in to the septic tank. Septic folklore had it that the carcass would kickstart the system. FACT: With normal use, the sewerage, which starts flowing into the tank provides plenty of nutrients for the bacteria to begin doing their job.
