If you want the waters in the prmtop file to be named something other than
"WAT", you would have to edit the file to change the names.
(But this is likely to be more problem than it is worth: analysis programs
and so on expect waters to be named "WAT", not something else.)

What the above commands do is the following: if there are residues named
"WAT" in your input pdb file, they will be treated as SPF waters.
