    Default Tanker question

    Do you get more iso points from a tanker or a tender?
    What is the gallon size for a tanker and a tender?

    There is no difference: A tanker is an east coast tender.
    The AFG folks don't give a rats arse about ISO points or ratings in determining grant scoring.
    On the east coast a tender is some form of white meat[ seagull , chicken , pigeon, iguana etc. ] coated in bread crumbs and fried , most commonly sold to poison folks at fast food joints.

    Default Tanker/Tender

    From the PG:

    Apparatus that has water capacity in excess of 1,000 gallons and a pump with pumping capacity of less than 750 gallons per minute are considered to be a tanker/tender.

    Your welcome.
    What are your goals to help improve your ISO rating?
    Are you trying to raise your flow rates by increasing your water carrying capacity?
    How much water do you roll out the door on your first out apparatus?
    Are you rural without hydranted public water supply?
    Do you have access to dry hydrants or need to draft from ponds , rivers or streams?

    All of these things may change how you solve your problem and come up with the proper solution.
