How many gallons in bathtubs?
There is no 'standard' bathtub size because there are so many different sizes on the market, however there are typical or more common measurements. A bath uses approximately 35-70 gallons (132-264 liters) of water on average, whereas a ten-minute shower uses approximately 25 gallons (94 liters). Baths, aside from general heating expenditures, should be limited to a special treat rather than a daily practice, as they may be rather expensive on your water and utility bills.
In this article, we will answer a few normal questions and introduce how many gallons Empava bathtubs have for different bathtubs.
How much do Smaller, Common and Larger bathtubs hold?
To begin with, a normal bathtub holds approximately 70 gallons (264 liters) of water. Smaller bathtubs can only store about 40 gallons (150 liters) of water and are usually better suitable for smaller children or as a shower room. Whereas much larger bathtubs can readily contain up to 100-110 gallons (378-410 liters) of water, and these include single person baths that can easily accommodate the higher water weight.
How much do Freestanding, Corner and Other Bathtubs hold?
Aside from looking somewhat different, each bathtub will have a varied overall water capacity based on the style and type of bathtub. 2-person bathtubs as well as corner bathtubs are often relatively large, providing for more water capacity.
Most freestanding bathtubs can contain 50-70 gallons of water because they are meant for single person bathing. (189–264 liters). Corner bathtubs are a bit larger, meant for more people use, which means the water capacity will be much more than one person, typically able to hold anywhere from 90-100 gallons (340-378 liters). Empava Acrylic Whirlpool Tub fit the more normal bathtub capacity type, typically holding 60-80 gallons, while greater sizes do exist due to the wide variety of models and styles available. in general (227-302 liters). This takes us to shower/tub combos, which are on the same spectrum as freestanding and acrylic drop-in showers because the majority of these showers are created with either of these types as the base. On average, you can expect a minimum of 60 gallons and a maximum of 110 gallons. (227 and 416 liters, respectively).
Another point to consider is the capacity of your water heater in conjunction with the additional water capacity of your bathtub. In most homes, a water heater with a capacity of 30-36 gallons of water is installed. If your house has four or more people, you probably have a larger water heater with a capacity of 40-60 gallons of water. This is significant because the more water your bath and showers can hold, the more powerful and huge your water heater needs to be in order to support your lengthy relaxing showers/baths with a steady flow of hot water.
Gallons per Bathtub
The average bathtub capacity ranges from 40 to 70 gallons of water, and if the tub is constructed for a small corner area, it will be near the lower end of that range, typically around 40 gallons. A clawfoot tub typically holds 40 to 60 gallons of water, but a modern freestanding tub carries 60 to 76 gallons. Tub-shower combo systems may have a bigger capacity, typically 60 to 80 gallons, or even more for larger models. Keep in mind the water displacement that occurs after you get into the tub; there's no need to fill the tub to anywhere near the height of the overflow drain cover when it's time for a bath.

For a comparison of water usage, the average 10-minute shower uses 21 gallons of water. This number may vary based on water pressure and whether the showerhead is a water-saving design or an older model. The Environmental Protection Agency estimates typical shower water use at 10 to 25 gallons for each shower, so even at the high end of this scale, a shower typically uses less water than a bath, unless you're using only a small amount of water in the tub, as may be the case if you're bathing a young child.
