I wonder if a ton of water would work?

A ton is a traditional measure and not always the same in different subject areas and different countries, and it is mostly referring to mass rather then to volume like litres.

A kiloliter is not a valid unit. People talk in hectoliters.

In Romanian, they seem to talk very well in kilolitres. In English, it is valid, but just not commun. Officially in SI, a kilolitre is one cubic metre of volume anyway ...

Why can't you say 'it is a kilolitre of water' since the answer given it 'it's a kilogram of water'. In the English used where I live (England south) we don't put an apostrophe to shorten 'it has' to 'it's' do I presume this is a US English shortcut?
