Chlorine Leak in Forum: What Happened

Human error may have caused the leak during the maintenance phase of the pond. An outside company employee would pour chlorine into a box at the bottom of the pool. Subsequently, this material may come into contact with sulfuric acid, another substance commonly used to clean tanks, initiating a chemical reaction.

Through Giuseppe di Vittorio the whole structure was expelled as a precaution because the material entered the air ducts and spread over 5 floors scattering throughout the 45 thousand square meter system.
