Water is an abundant compound found on many inhabitable planets across not only the Milky Way, but Pegasus and other galaxies as well. According to Major Samantha Carter, Earth's surface is two-thirds water, as the planet is covered in oceans, including the Pacific and Atlantic. Lantea and M35-117's surface is also mostly water.

Another use for water is drinking. On Earth, a company known as Evian sold water for consumption to Humans. Atlantis has systems that can desalinize the sea water into fresh drinking water. (SGA: "Hide and Seek", "Doppelganger")
In 2009, a group of 80 Tau'ri soldiers and scientists were stranded on board the Destiny. Because they only brought a limited amount of supplies, their water supply was low, so they resorted to rationing. Eventually, the water supply was so low, a team had to harvest an ice planet Eli Wallace called "Hoth" in order to replenish their water supply. (SGU: "Air, Part 3", "Water")
