The amount of water that a fire truck can hold depends on the model of the fire truck. Different sized trucks can hold different amounts of water. It appears that fire trucks can hold between 750 and 3000 gallons of water depending on the model.
The pumper truck, rescue engine, or fire engine vary in size considerably from 100 to 500 gallons of water. The rescue engine usually just passes water through from a hydrant.
A Water Tender is just for toting large amounts of water to the scene. They can pump to load, but they don’t usually pump strong enough to fight fires. Most water tenders are designed to carry loads of 1,000 U.S. gallons (830 imp gal; 3,800 L) or more. In the US, 1,000 U.S. gallons is the requirement in the NFPA standards. Some may carry up to or even upwards of 5,000 U.S. gallons (4,200 imp gal; 19,000 L) of water.
