Does the display update automatically when you manually edit the SurfaceAddWaterColor.fs file with a text editor?

The SARndbox application uses Linux file system updates to listen for changes to its shader files. Using cp might not trigger a notification, as the Linux file system uses double-buffering of a sort to shield applications that have a file open from external changes to those files (like updating a dynamic library that’s currently used by a process).

If manual updates work, you could try this instead of cp:

$ cat SurfaceAddWaterColor-Lava.fs > SurfaceAddWaterColor.fs

This should have the same effect as manual editing.
