While it is commonly used to prevent bacteria growth in water and for sanitation for industrial waste and sewage, chlorine is a deadly chemical when inhaled or ingested. Extremely high levels of chlorine in swimming pools can release gas off the surface, and cause chlorine poisoning. This usually occurs in an indoor pool, or in places like health clubs and gyms that have a swimming pool.
