I had trouble in Greece recently asking for sparkling/aerated water. In our village in Cyprus it was called  νερό μεταλλικό but I was told this just means spring water!

So - another person mentioned either ανθρακόυχο or αεριζόμενου

Which would you say is correct?

"sparkling water" is "αεριούχο νερό".  You can also say "ανθρακούχο νερό", άνθρακας means carbon (C).

"Μεταλικό νερό" is the natural water coming out of a spring, but it is not necessarily "sparkling water".
