Shower,

Shower heads can usually allow anywhere between 2.5 and 5 gallons of water a minute. Toilets can use this volume in a single flush. As most showers last longer than one minute the shower volume is considerably higher.

No because the water is constantly running making it add up where as a bath you put a certain amount in and that's it.

How many gallons in the bath; how many gallons per shower??? The Navy used to have freshwater showers on submarines that used a quart (or so) per shower. it depends how long you have a shower for. Usually a shower would save more water than a bath. I hope this helps answer you question! I think a bath saves more water because if you put a plug in the shower you will have nearly more water than a bath!!

There are a fair number of variables here. How deep is your bathtub, how much water does your shower head use a minute?

A very simple test can be done to prove which is which. Next time you take a 5 minute shower, plug the tub. At the end of your shower see how much water is in the tub. If the tub is not as full as you would have it for your bath, you will have proven out which is which for you.

The problem wih the question is that there are too many variables. The fullness of the bathtub and its size are not specified and the length and flow characteristics of the shower are similarly unknown.

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency a full bathtub requires about 300 liters of water, while taking a shower uses 8 to 24 liters a minute. So you have to take a 15 minute for a full flow head to half an hour with a low flow head shower to equal the tub. For your personal uase pattern put the plug in the tub while you shower and see how full it becomes.

The shower looks even better if you use a low flow head. This will get the flow down to less than 8 liters a minute.

If you are a bath fan, fill the tub only half way

No and yes it matters how long your in but for me i am in the shower for 5-10 minuets and it uses more then a bath.
