    I can block off the tube, but what little O3 it might be generating would be left inside the device. Would that be harmful? (like corrosion)

    I am concerned about unplugging the Ozone generator completely, because the machine might throw an error and refuse to work at all.

    I don't know. Try it and see.

    It may just tell you the ozone is unplugged.

    It has a light dedicated to telling you when the O3 generator needs replacing. However, since you say it likely produces so little, I opted for trying to plug the tube. It took me three tries before I found something that worked, but I have finally stopped the bubbles. I have the auto cleaner hooked up now, but unfortunately not much dirt in the pool for it to clean. We'll see how it goes.

    FYI, I have well water. Your comments at the beginning that people should read, say this site can't help you if you have well water. I suggest a small shift in words. I think what you were trying to say is that this site can't help you to solve problems caused by well water, or directly related to well water. Something like that. I am fortunate not to have hard water or iron in my water. However my water is highly acidic. I think our lowest professional testing result came in around 5.5 PH. I think it's gotten lower than that myself. For 14,500 gallons of well water, it took 1 box of soda wash and 2 boxes of borax before the test strips nudged above 6.2. However, they were old strips. It was probably 6.2 before I added the second box of borax. It's now safely above 7.2 after a third box of borax was added. (Yes, I bought new strips, the old ones weren't registering PH or stabilizer correctly)
