A pipa is how we refer to a water tanker truck, though it can mean any tanker truck.

Pipa de agua - water tanker
Pipa de gasolina - gasoline tanker
Pipa de tobaco - tobacco pipe (just threw that in to confuse ya!)

Most of the folks high on the hillsides as well as in rural communities without a city water system, such as Troncones, pay pipas if they want water.
