Here ya go. My daughter gets a 200 gallon blowup pool with a 3gr./hr. CD Ozone system. LOL It pretty much didn't matter what the heck they did in there, drop the unit in there for 5 minutes and it was all clean and sparkly again.

Was a fun little experiment I did to see if you could do it. The pipe you see behind the Ozone unit is actually a contact chamber. The higher pump I used as a booster to get the sizing more or less correct. I could actually run that sucker for an hour and still not really smell much Ozone although I don't think I had the generator cranked right up.

Talk about overkill! At least it gives you peace of mind.

What would happen if you put too much ozone into the pool?

If a little tiny bit too much, fresh air smell in the area.

If kinda sorta too much and you got the "photo copier" smell going quite good I guess you might get a headache after a while.

At some point the Ozone would start oxidizing/dissolving the pool and eventually the pump and plumbing too although I am sure this pool would have long ago disintegrated and because the pump would melt from lack of water the plumbing would be safe :D

Also the fumes could be expected to be deadly or at least cause very severe headaches and other very severe health issues. I think they say 50ppm is expected to be fatal. You can smell it and become sensitive at as little as .1 ppm or so though. A photo copier probably puts out more than that. People are very sensitive to it. I took a lungful once at 2%. Thats about 20,000 ppm. Brutal night in hospital but I am still here. It prevents oxygen flow to the bloodstream.

And of course there is lots more but the internet is full of info there is no room to put here.
