i would say about 22oz?

i dont know it takes alot of water and the water lasts about 4-7 minutes on the lowest pressure (0-3)

Medium pressure (4-7 and a half) lasts about 2-4 minutes

THIS IS ON FULL TANK

Highest pressure (8-10)
Lasts about 2-3 minutes.

Does not appear to be so. The permanent cord is that of U.S. outlets (sorry, not sure of electrical terminology) and the only reference to voltage is on the bottom of the machine (not in manual) which shows: 120 V, 60 Hz, 34 W. If you need further detail, the company's #'s are:
