Hello,
If the water from the catheter escapes or is lost then you should get it replaced with distilled water and not tap water as there is always a risk of infection with tap water if the water escapes.  

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
