    It depends on how long the shower runs. An average showerhead sprays seven to ten gallons of water per minute, so if you take a 15 minute shower, that’s somewhere between 105 and 150 gallons of water. Some more modern showerheads come equipped with water-saving technologies and spray less, closer to 3 gallons per minute. The attached link has some interesting information on the amount of water used in other routine activities, like flushing the toilet, watering the lawn or washing dishes.
