Fire Truck Tank Flushing!

Did you know that a fire engine can hold up to 1,000 gallons (3,785 liters) of water? That’s like drinking 16,000 cups of water, since there are about 16 cups of water in 1 gallon. The average toilet uses 1.6 gallons or 6 liters of water per flush. That’s only about 25.6 cups of water! If you hooked up a toilet to the fire truck tank, you’d have to flush the toilet 631 times to empty the fire truck of water! That’s a lot of flushing! Comment below with how YOU would empty the water tank of a fire truck.
