Why Hire A Water Tank Truck In Uganda

Why Hire A Water Tank Truck In Uganda

Water tank trucks also known as water bowsers are specialized vehicles designed to transport and distribute water from the tanks located on the chassis. These vehicles are frequently used in a variety of specialized industries, from farming to dust control at construction sites. DK Car Rental offers affordable water tank truck rental in Uganda for individuals, small and large businesses plus communities.

Dust control

Dust is a familiar sight at mining and construction sites, often impeding the progress of the workers, as well as affecting their health and potentially harming the environment. In fact, one of the biggest t\reasons for hiring a water truck is for dust control the fact that fugitive dust can add to air pollution and increase the risk of respiratory issues, eye and lung irritation and heart diseases due to silica and other dust particles. Water trucks with tank capacities of 2,000-4,000 gallons range are particularly useful tor tamping down the dust after its kicked up by the grading equipment, although there are 5,000-7,000 gallon models for off road purposes. Not only does a water track speed up the construction or mining work, but it helps to ensure the safety of the workers and protect the environment.

Fire control

Water trucks are also used to transport water to rural areas where there are no appropriate fire hydrants. Water trucks haul the water to remote areas and supply it to fire trucks, but they can also be used to dampen dry, fire-prone areas and prevent the spreading of the blaze.

Soil compaction

In order to ensure safe construction of buildings, bridges and roads, the soil at construction sites needs to be properly compacted into a flat, even surface. To achieve this, construction workers use heavy duty compacting equipments such as rollers, vibratory plates, and rollers that remove the air from the soil while leaving the water content. However, too much water left in the soil can make the ground unstable and sludgy, while too little can make it harder for the dry particles to adhere to one another. Water trucks are a great solution to this, providing a mobile and readily accessible source of water. These vehicles also enable the workers to control the amount of water, maintaining a good liquid to soil ratio and ensuring proper compaction.


Water trucks are also used to transport recycled rainwater to drought stricken farmlands. By providing a water source, these trucks help in maintaining irrigation and keep the crops and livestock alive. They are an indispensable part of any farmer’s equipment, protecting them from even the most intense droughts.

Portable water

water trucks can offer a rapid means of hauling safe portable water to areas in need in case of emergencies and disasters. Additionally, these trucks can be used to supply construction and mining site workers with fresh water throughout the day, as well as transport portable water to special events like military training or nay other remote location.
