    The Epicenter suggests that two gallons per person per day is what most people need. However, you asked what people USE, and my guess is that it would be much greater than that.

    The amount of water that people use depends a lot on various factors. Some people take 1/2 hour showers, and some people take 5 minute showers.

    I would guess the average person, if they shower every day, would be close to about 5 gallons a day.

    While the averages offered are just averages there is a way to calculate your and your families water usage, its a pretty easily task.
