    Note however that electrolysis works better if the water has some impurities in it,.
    Pure distilled water requires a more powerful source of electricity..
    The presence of small amounts of metals and other ions assist the conduction of electricity through the fluid,.
    A lot of water soluble substances are useable.
    The resulting higher current helps to dissociate the Hydrogen from the Oxygen.

    High_Technology, I suggest you do your own research before asking a simple but open-ended question. Then come prepared with more specific questions.
