In a recent paper (Petkov V, Ren Y and Suchomel M 2012 J. Phys.: Condens. Matter 24 155102) we confirmed the presence of fine features in the molecular distribution function of water and showed that these features can be explained in terms of a simple model featuring water molecules forming tetrahedral units of different perfection and/or participating in rings of different sizes. In this reply we reaffirm our findings. © 2012 IOP Publishing Ltd.
