I got ingin in my choices rather than mau... I think I have not been taught yet.

I have trouble with the form "mengisinya". Does -nya stand in for "it"? Would the literal translation be "I want its contents to be filled with water"?

I would also appreciate a better explanation of what -nya is doing in this sentence.
