Easily chose Huge Power. Even with Belly Drum, Regular Aqua Jet and Knock Off won't nearly do enough damage to KO many things with decent defenses. However, with Huge Power, Azumarill finally reached the heights that brought it into OU. Basically a 400 base Attack Stat with Belly Drum with a Priority STAB move. Also, there are very few viable Pokémon in OU that have access to any Grass type moves to consider running Sap Sipper, especially on an offensive Azumarill. Smogon also says to run Huge Power.
Hope this helps!

Smogon says Huge Power is better, and for good reason -- it makes Azumarill's attacks far more powerful, which works excellently in tandem with Belly Drum. Sap Sipper can be used to negate Azumarill's Grass weakness, but Huge Power is preferable in almost every scenario.

Hope I helped!

I think you should do Huge Power. Sap Sipper will occur by a grass type hit, so if your not Fainted by the move, you are like 15 hp. If you do choose Sap Sipper, try having a Focus sash. Your moveset is great tho.

My conclusion: Huge Power.

Sap sipper gives grass immunity and gives the boost.
I did not know that. Sorry
