my water doesnt seem to work right. Because i can see water only when im swimming under it. I created water by creating big box with nodraw texture then i go to texture application tool and changed it to normal water_well.

You can check for leaks by compiling on normal and with VIS and RAD off, also check the box for don't run game on compile. (As your checking for leaks) then once it compiles go to Map > Load pointfile. A red line will show you from your map to leak. Watch this video is your still confused.

This probably isn't the cause, but you should always make sure you only texture the top of the water brush with a water texture, otherwise it's gonna be a lot more demanding + other problems.
I don't know if this is what you did, but it doesn't sound like it.
