By comparison, a 10-minute shower consumes approximately 25 to 50 gallons of water or more, depending on the type of showerhead used. The maximum volume of a bathtub is calculated by multiplying the inner width, length and depth in inches and then dividing the product by 1,728 to convert it into cubic feet. The tub's volume, in gallons, is then determined by multiplying the total number of cubic feet by 7.5, which is the number of gallons in 1 cubic foot.
