    left out key steps,
    how you seperate the hydrogen gas from the oxygen?
    how you pressurize the gas to get it into tanks?
    how you store hydrogen gas, its lighter than EVERYTHING else, it will cause most tanks to fail..

    • Hydrogen is separated from water, not oxygen. Run water through a fuel cell that is supplied with electricity or solar that splits water into hydrogen and pure oxygen. The hydrogen gas is then pressurized and sent to the storage tanks (converted propane tanks) for later use. The oxygen is just vented off from the fuel cell or on some cases can be stored and sold to oxygen bars. From what I have learned about his system, the propane tanks cannot be 100% sealed to handle the smaller hydrogen molecules so they do leak slightly over time.
      At night or when the battery bank runs low, the fuel cell kicks on and runs in reverse by letting hydrogen from the storage tanks back through, mixing with oxygen again to create DC electricity and purified water again.
