The asymmetric unit of the title compound, 2,4,6-tri­amino-1,3,5-triazin-1-ium cyano­acetate monohydrate, C3H7N6+·NCCH2COO·H2O, consists of a melaminium cation, a cyano­acetate anion and a water mol­ecule, which are connected to each other via N—H⋯O and O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds, generating an eight-membered ring. In the crystal, the melaminium cations are connected by two pairs of N—H⋯N hydrogen bonds, forming tapes along [110]. These tapes develop a three-dimensional network through N—H⋯O, O—H⋯O, N—H⋯N and C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds between the cations, anions and water mol­ecules.
