Please tell me you let the engine cool down before you added the water. Or had the engine running. If not I fear that the block or head. Hot steel+Cold water= Trouble.

Or.... When the engine got hot the head gasket blow out. Bottom line, white smoke is the coolent mixing with the fuel.

I agree white smoke is coolant in the cylinders. Hopefully just a head gasket and not a cracked head.
