6th Edition Problem 69 part B

When finding the pH of .055M of AlCl3, the balanced chemical equation shows that there are 6 water molecules attached to Al and the overall charge is +3 on the reactants side. How come it can't be balanced with just 3 water molecules?

The extra 3 are used to get H3O+ from H+
