The pan of water will dampen the movement of the plumb bob at the bottom of 
 the string, but will not help the plumb line to remain vertical  and  
straight in the breeze. I use a plumb line regularly at work, and they are
pain outdoors. Here is an easier way to plumb a tower. 
I will use the assistance of a picnic table, ice chest, or anything with a  
surface that is easily leveled placed about the same distance from the  
tower as the tower is tall. On that surface place your framing square  
vertically. If you have the surface of the table level, the square is now a
vertical. The first time you will probably need an assistant to hold the 
square.  Have the assistant place a magnetic level on the flat fertical
of the  square to keep it vertical in that direction also. Place yourself in

position so  that the tower and vertical edge of the square are in 
alignment. Now look down  the edge of the square and compare it to the
tower. You can 
get amazing accuracy  with this method, but takes a little practice.
