pure liquids and solids, which includes water, are disregarded for the equilibrium expression because they don't have an affect on reactant amount at equilibrium and they don't have a concentrations to be used to calculate k.
When calculating K water is not accounted for because the molar concentration of pure substances (solids or liquids) does not change in the reaction. Therefore solid and liquids are not included in the K expression.
