First you need to locate where the leak is coming from? Is it pooling on the ground after refilling?

The only way you can have water coming from the OIL filter is if the engine block is cracked !. I suspect it is leaking higher up an running down the filter. Have a pressure test of the cooling system carried out, this will confirm where the leak is by making it stream out so you can see it better. Most garages will diagnose a problem for free in hope they get the work?
