Amongst other examples of SCC with chlorine this one stands out .While I was in the Submarine business there was a fire in one of the subs that was at the base. They put out the fire with city water which of course contains chlorine..They should have known but were clueless. The water soaked the lagging [insulation] should have been removed and everything [stainless steel piping] should have been flushed with deionized water .Instead months later someone thought 'shouldn't that have been flushed ?' All the piping in the compartment had to be replaced due to SCC.
And Watson , bring your revolver !
