The water spawner was a block that would repeatedly create water on each of its four orthogonal sides.
Water spawners can be broken instantly, regardless of held items.
|Breaking time (secs)|
Water spawners could be found in Indev House chests in stacks of 99 in in-20100124-2, and stacks of 100 in-20100128. Prior to this, they were added to the player's inventory by default in a stack of 5.
The water spawner has many visual and functional differences from normal water:
- It is a full, solid cube block with full block collision.
- It is completely opaque.
- All sides use the same still water texture.
Immediately after placement, the water spawner creates source blocks of water on each of its four orthogonal sides. If these created sources are removed, they will be regenerated after enough time.
Water spawners are deleted by sponges.

|20100624||The water spawner has been removed. As the ID is now empty, it now crashes the game with a NullPointerException if a chunk containing said block is loaded or an inventory containing one opened.|
|20100625-2||The numeric ID which water spawners used is now used by the spawner, and as such all existing water spawners will seamlessly convert into spawners instead of causing the game to crash.|
Water Spawner is a removed block and as such issues relating to it cannot be fixed.
A water spawner. It could be held in the inventory by inventory editing.
