Use the water_movingplane texture. It can be tied to a func_water_analog but still refract, be see through, and have proper reflections. Unfortunately it doesn't have fog.

No it works outside too. But it would shift a little if you go inside the water brush. And there would be the no gravity and stuff Thats more if you have no reason to go down there and you make a clip brush.

Cubemaps. Put them near the surfaces that are tinted. (your skybox seems to have a default cubemap, and those surfaces have strong specular reflections. You didn't build your own, so its reflecting the skybox everywhere.)
