Farming Simulator Water Tank: How To Supply Water To Your Farm



In Farming Simulator 22, water is crucial for the health of your farm, especially if you have livestock like cows or chickens or have built a greenhouse to grow crops like strawberries and tomatoes. Animals and greenhouses need a lot of water, but it’s not immediately obvious how to get the water and get it where it needs to go.

Fortunately, once you know what to do, it’s pretty easy, and there are different methods and types of equipment you can use. Below we will tell you everything you need to know about getting water in Farming Simulator 22.

Farming Simulator 22 water tank

You’ve probably guessed that you need a water tank of some sort, but the store menu in Farming Simulator 22 is huge and with so many different types of equipment it’s hard to know where to look.

Since water is primarily used for your animals, this is the place to start. In the store menu (press P to open it), go to the Tools menu (the icon looks like a trailer). From there, go to the Pets menu (scroll down, it’s in the 6th row).

There are three tanks to choose from: The Joskin is the smallest and can only be used for water. The MKS 8 lizard is a bit bigger and can also be used to transport milk and other liquids, so you might want to consider this if you have cows. The Lizard MKS 32 is huge, can be used for water and other liquids, and will need a truck instead of a tractor to pull it. Buy or rent the one that suits your needs, then hook it up to your tractor or truck outside of the shop.

Farming Simulator 22: Fill your water tank

There are several ways to get water, and one is completely free. Simply drive your tank to a body of water like a pond, lake, or river, lift your tank up on it, and fill it up. A prompt will appear in the vehicle controls drop-down list when you are close enough to ask you to press R to fill your tank. Be careful! Rolling your tank back to the water’s edge can be tricky and as your tank fills it gets heavier, so it can be difficult to get off if you are on a steep incline. It also takes a little time to fill a large tank. A meter at the bottom of the screen will show how much water you have collected.

Farming Simulator 22: Build a water tank

Another option is to build a water tank somewhere on your property with which you can fill your towed tank. This is much more convenient as it will likely be closer to your animals and greenhouse than a river or pond, but it will cost money to build it and you will be charged every time you use it.

Open the building menu by pressing Shift-P, then under Buildings go to the Containers tab. The water tank is at the end and costs $ 3,000. You can place it on any open area on your property.

When you stop next to it, you will see the same refill prompt (R), but you will also see that it charges you money for every liter you refill. It’s not that expensive, but if you’re a budget-conscious farmer, you might prefer to refuel for free in ponds and rivers.

Finally, in the build menu under Silo Extensions, you can build an additional water tank. It costs $ 2,100 and it’s supposed to be placed near greenhouses, although it doesn’t seem to be working at this time. They can’t be refilled with your towed tank, and they don’t seem to add additional water storage to the greenhouses they’re next to. For now, it might be wise not to buy them and build them.
