I've been using an inexpensive ozone generator bought on eBay
I created and wrote a big website and manual for a company that was selling
a very full-featured air purifier. The product had an ozonator in there as
part of the feature set. While they were researching the ozone feature
they learned some appalling stuff about ozone and had me do a significant
rewrite on the manual.
The main warning was that neither you nor your pets should ever be in the
room while the ozone generator was operating, nor for several hours
afterward. Apparently while ozone does a terrific job of disinfecting
stuff and destroying the organic causes of bad odors, that same destructive
job is done on any living tissue including your lungs.
The state of California is actually making some moves toward banning ozone
generators, and the company I did the writing work for is actively trying
to get their supplier to remove the ozone feature from its product.
This is all to say, whilst infusing ozone into water (if any really is
staying in the water) you might want to presume that much of that ozone is
going into the room air, and that you should not be in the room while
you're doing that stuff, or for four hours afterward.
If disinfecting is what you are after, I have a suggestion backed by
anecdotal evidence and provided here by a guy who doesn't even have a
degree in harmonica playing, much less science: try hydrogen peroxide. I
have heard that that stuff disinfects.
I know it's true because I heard someone say it.
