The hypotheses of the scaling universality of the wrapping probability at the percolation threshold and of the critical exponent ν have been examined for the PM/TIP4P primitive model of water. The obtained results confirm the validity of the recently proposed method of determination of the percolation threshold in fluids and its characteristics, supporting further the hypothesis of universality, and efficiency and accuracy of the method.
