I knew it! My home is trying to kill me! House Hazards finally provides proof

Poo bomb. No, you’re not misreading that. Poo bomb.

The creation of a so-called poo bomb is one of the reasons to watch House Hazards, which debuts with back-to-back episodes, Tuesday, Oct. 16 on HGTV.

This series is a “MythBusters meets the evil twin of Mike Holmes” kind of deal.

House Hazards is based on the premise that your house is trying to kill you. And it may not even be haunted, although we’re not ruling anything out.

In each episode, engineer Dan Dicaire, scientist Francesca Garigue and special-effects expert Brendan Callaghan (pictured above, left to right) combine their talents to reveal the various ways in which your house is dangerous, separating fact from fiction along the way.

Their first project is to recreate a septic-tank explosion, the likes of which occur due to clogging and the buildup of toxic gasses. Shockingly, House Hazards claims that septic-tank explosions kill up to 1,200 people a year.

Now that’s crappy.
