In theory, the ozone doesn't get into the blower unit, just the water tank, hose, mask, etc. There might be some leakage into the blower unit.
As for cleaning, I keep two sets of everything (except blower unit), wash disassembled tank and mask in dishwasher at the end of a week, then put the clean ones away, and use the parts I washed last week. I like the idea that sitting dry for a week will keep germ levels down.
The hoses are tricky. I hook mine over the kitchen faucet, then run the hottest water I can get through them. I dry them on an an old legacy REMstar Plus CPAP set on 4 cmH2O. It blows gently. Newer, smarter CPAP machines tend to blow like crazy when there's no human on the other end of the hose, so I'd be afraid to use my "real" CPAP for hose drying.
Washing the hoses in the dishwasher is tricky. Unless you're careful, the water will not get into the hose or will just sit and stagnate in the hose. I carefully lay mine out with one end higher than the other and snakes around such that the water will fill the hose and flow through it, but I'm reluctant to take the effort to describe it in detail for fear people would do it wrong and make things worse. After that, I hook the hose to the kitchen faucet, rinse with hot water, then drain it and dry on the old CPAP machine.
