Water would do nothing...or rather, it would explode into super heated steam, but it would in no way "put out" the sun.
You need to understand: the sun isn't burning in the traditional sense (IE wood fire), it is bright and providing head due to nuclear reactions
happening inside of it.
Basically, the sun is like a gigantic nuclear bomb that is constantly exploding. What keeps it together is the sheer mass of hydrogen that it is made
out of. (which is becoming helium through nuclear fusion, and that process is what is releasing all that energy).
If you want to "put out" the sun, there are a few ways to do it:
1) Some how make nuclear fusion inside it impossible.....warning, normally when a star stops being able to do nuclear fusion at it's core....it
explodes (goes nova or super nova).
2) Some how remove all the hydrogen....in other words: start making most of what makes the sun a star go away or disappear. Without hydrogen to fuel
it's fusion reaction, it will stop (unless it had enough helium to continue that reaction, and no, right now our sun does not have enough).
3) Have some very superior technology and encapsulate the sun (Dyson Sphere).
Those are about the only ways I can think of "putting out" the sun.
