Water trucks are essential for construction and industrial projects. They’re used to transport water and can hold anywhere between 2,000 and 5,000 gallons. Water trucks distribute water through features like front, rear, side spray nozzles, and hoses and come equipped with low point drains and different fill capabilities.
For construction teams, water trucks are used for dust control and to clean the equipment after use. They are also a great asset for compacting the soil. Adding water to the dirt and soil aggregates helps create smoother surfaces as teams grade, spread, and level layers for road construction. For jobs located in heavily wooded or forested areas, water trucks are used to quell flames in the event of a fire. Check out the FAQs below to learn more.

Water trucks can help with dust control, fire maintenance for job sites in wooded areas, filling reservoirs or tanks used for cement mixing or power washing, filling pools or ponds, cleaning construction equipment after use, and transporting water to farmland. They are also used in various phases of the compaction process for road construction by adding water to aggregates, ensuring a more consistent and smooth compaction surface.
Water trucks distribute water by using different attachments and drains. Common ones include controlled spray heads to dispense water without oversaturation, Berkeley-style pumps that allow both intake and discharge, and baffles, to minimize surging. Note that different truck models may not come with attachments or have different drainage methods, so check with your rep when renting.
