I wanted to ask you fellow airport workers this because I believe I know the proper etiquette when performing one of these salutes, but I believe that our personnel haven't been exposed to the proper procedure because I see different ways it is done.
My belief is that when performing a water salute that the arch should be stationary and the aircraft drives under it. I should not be a "wash down" of the aircraft where the water is moved around and sprayed on the aircraft as if you are hosing it down. Also, the arches should criss-cross over the aircraft and not impact each other.
What is everyone's opinion/description of how they have seen water cannon salutes performed?

Boeing Nut you are correct.....friend of mine retired in March, when they were approaching gate they got the salute, had to stop the airplane since they were WOXOF..... Too much water and not even the wipers on high speed helped.
