Water won’t work! They live in sewers, they swim like fish,
if you are going to use a trap you don’t leave it out in the open, you find the rat run, easily spotted by smooth earth, usually close to a wall or fence, then cover the trap with chicken wire leaving a hole open at the end about 1.5 inches, then nothing else can get in.
In your case I think the best would be to call in the council rat man to get rid of them, did you know that from one pair of rats, 2000 will be born in a year.
