How do you stop two cats from fighting?

I adopted a stray cat that showed up on my doorstep. I've managed to nurse her back to health but one of my cats tries to attack her any chance she gets. The vet said to keep one in a locked room and they would get to know each other through the door. This resulted in one of the cats destroying the carpet trying to dig under. It's been over 7 months now and the fights are horrible. They are both females - does that have anything to do with it? Any ideas?

My dad use to throw a pail of water to them to stop the fight

These are indoor cats. My house might get a little soaked if I try that. I wonder if a spray bottle would do the same.
