water in fuel help

A few weeks back I had the WIF light come on. I drained the fuel bowl and changed out the filter and that was it. Now a few days ago it came back on again and there is infact water in the bottle I drained from the fuel bowl. Im running Power Service additive currently. I started after the first time the WIF light came on. Any idea on why? Poor fuel quality? What kind of additive should I run to help remove that fuel from the tank, short of dropping and draining the tanků

Siphon fuel all from the tank (if theres a siphon proof block in your filler line you should take something off the top of the tank and do it that way), fill it up with new fuel, run the appropriate amount of Diesel Kleen through it, and it should help.
