Likely the heat generated will cause sufficient steam pressure that will prevent water from reaching the glass.  So much to consider there with diameter and height of the glass, average temperature of water coming out of the faucet, mineral content of the water, efficiency and durability of the anode+cathode, and whether there are easier ways to explode yourself.
