Btw..

By the way ozone is VERY harmful to rubber, plastics and foam that is why you need to be very vigilant in hose inspection if you run an ozone generator on a boat.

My buddy Seth owns a very high end canvas shop and had a very high end boat that killed the foam in about 18 months. It lost almost all of it's elasticity and was crumbling. This usually takes years and years to happen. After consulting with the foam manufacturer, and sending in a sample, their reply back was "does this boat use an ozone generating machine?"... Enough said...

Ozone can kill odors but also other stuff...
