Creating water

I’ve been stumped lately on how to make water in Blender. Does anyone know of a useful tutorial I should check out? I know they have one on making puddles on Blender Guru. Should I check that one out? thxs

Blender has a fluid simulation system
http://www.blender.org/development/release-logs/blender-240/fluids-simulation/
with that you can easily make animatet water.
for static water you could try this

Thanks, your help is much appreciated. The links were extremely helpful.
