I am wondering how to move water and lava in Terraria.

    Moving and redirecting are not really the same thing. This is not a duplicate IMHO.

You can use buckets to move small quantities of liquids, as well as pumps and gravity for large stores of liquids (liquids will flow down to the lowest depth they can reach, then spread equally along the horizontal axis).

  • once you have a small amount of liquid in a bucket you can make more by using a Generator. See also youtube for videos.

I would use a pump, But it depends how far you want to carry the water/lava.pumps do have to be connected with wire but i think the limit of blocks you can place it is 1000. hope this helps!
