Saalih bin Ahmed (rahimahullah), the son of Imaam Ahmed bin Hambal (rahimahullah), mentions the following:

When my father needed to make wudhu, he would not allow anyone to draw out water for him from the well, rather he would draw it out himself. While pulling out the bucket from the well, when his sight would fall upon the water, he would immediately praise Allah Ta‘ala saying, “Alhamdulillah.”

I asked him, “O my beloved father! What is the reason for reciting Alhamdulillah at this time?” He replied, “O my beloved son! I am thanking Allah Ta‘ala for this invaluable bounty of water. Do you not hear Allah Ta‘ala say in the Qur’aan Majeed:

قُلۡ اَرَءَیۡتُمۡ اِنۡ اَصۡبَحَ مَآؤُکُمۡ غَوۡرًا فَمَنۡ یَّاۡتِیۡکُمۡ بِمَآءٍ مَّعِیۡنٍ ﴿٪۳۰﴾

Say, “Tell me, should your water vanish into the earth, who will bring you a flowing (stream of) water?” (Surah Mulk v. 30)

(Manaaqib Imaam Ahmed libnil Jowzi pg. 382)
