Is "Hon hoppade in i vattnet." wrong or unidiomatic?

I've deleted some previous replies to this, since they had so many upvotes and I really don't understand why they were written. Saying hoppa in i vattnet is a very idiomatic expression, which is easy to verify, even though the construction in general usually refers to jumping into solids, such as a concrete wall.

Interesting. I typed "in i vattnet" when completing the exercise because in the movie The Passion of Anna, one character tells another to look "in i kameran". I assumed therefore that "in i" would be the normal way of saying "into".
