Reptile calcium for snakes?

So im planning on getting my baby snake some reptile calcium and I was wondering what would happen if I put some in her water? Would it ruin it and make her not drink or would it be ok or just have a small amount in her food (without d3 since I have a light)

Update:

Really? I didnt know that they could get to much calcium. Thank you for telling me!

    Snakes dont generally need calcium..  They eat whole prey..  Same in captivity as they eat in the wild.  As long as husbandry is correct, your snake should have no problem digesting his prey properly to get all nutrients.

    Too much calcium can cause issues as well
