How much water do baths use | Regional Water Providers Consortium


Rub a dub dub. Only fill the bath with the amount of water you need when bathing in the tub

Baths account for about 3% of the water used in an average home. The amount of water used each bath is determined by the size of the bath tub and the level the bather fills the tub.

Bathtubs in the United States have generally decreased over time, and today the typical modern bathtub (non‐jetted) holds between 25 to 45 gallons.Your household can use water efficiently in the bath by only filling the tub with as much water as you actually need.
