    A drop in the bucket

    Break the ice

     

    It's all water under the bridge

    Like water off a duck's back

    Took, hook, line and sinker

    When our ship comes in

    A flood of tears

    On cloud nine

    Mind in a fog

    Tip of the iceberg

     

    Steamed up

    The well has run dry


    Sink or swim

    Feeling swamped


    Icy stare


    Something snowballs


    In hot water

    A stepping stone to...


    Crying buckets


    Having a ripple effect


    Wet your whistle

    Raining cats and dogs

    Skating on thin ice


    Jump in with both feet

    Somebody is all wet


    Madder than a wet hen

    Bogged down

    Get your feet wet


    Troubled waters


    Like a duck to water


    Make a big splash


    Treading water

     

    Watered down


    Down the drain


    Wet behind the ears



    Something smells fishy
