On average, 2 gallons of water is used per minute during a shower. So the amount used and the amount saved can be calculated depending on how long you shower. So, if you shower for 10 minutes every day for 10 days then you use 2x10x10=200 gallons. If you were to shower every other day, then it’ll be 2x10x5=100 gallons and thereby saving 100 gallons of water.
According to the USGS, they use the following numbers to calcuate water usage:
Bath: 50 gallons Shower: 2 gallons per minute Teeth brushing: 1 gallon Hands/face washing: 1 gallon Face/leg shaving: 1 gallon Dishwasher: 20 gallons/load Dishwashing by hand: 5 gallons/load Clothes washing (machine): : 10 gallons/load Toilet flush: 3 gallons Glasses of water drunk: 8 oz. per glass (1/16th of a gallon)
