  1. You have to add the atmospheric pressure to the weight of the water above.

    Take a 1m^2 column thru the water to the moon.
    atmospheric pressure=101.3kpa=101.3N/m^2
    water weight= density water*g*height= 1e3kg/m^3*9.8N/kg*1.8m=17.6kPa

    absolute pressure= 17.6kPa+101.3kpa check my math.
