Subject: Re: Pneumatic tube system operational!
We’ve had some overheating issues as a result of making this tube ‘operational’ - they were inadvertently sending hot air down to the basement and people there were sweating like pigs and passing out. We’ve installed the manual extraction pump to prevent that which has to be always left on as a result.
As a happy side effect, this pump will also extract any hazardous materials, toxic gases etc that make their way down to the basement levels by accident.
We had to turn it off for a brief period recently though - there was a flooding in the gym changing rooms and the manual extraction pump started sending the excess sewage up through the building. If it happens again, I'll turn it off again.
Either way it seems to be under control now. Would be grand though if next time Maintenance is consulted before an expensive vanity project like this is undergone.
