Here's a shot I took at a smaller aperture and ISO-100. Once again with this shot I was not happy with the sharpness, but maybe I'm being too critical.

I've looked at your 2 shots, the first has the details obliterated by the high ISO noise reduction, go with the lowest ISO you can to get the shutter speed you need to get the shot, if you want to stop the water, 1/250 of a sec should be fast enough, and if you want to show movement, 1/2 sec should do.

The 2nd does seem a bit soft @ 100%, I'm not sure you needed f13 to get the shot, f 8 should be good enough and could be closer to the lenses sweet spot.

Another thing you can do, is take your camera and lens to a camera store, and take some shots with your lens on your camera, then more shots with the store's lens to compare sharpness, hopefully the results are obvious so you have a clear path forward.

good luck.
