Water used in a 20 minute shower depends on the shower head. If you are using a low flow showerhead, less water will be used, but the pressure will be less. If you use a rain type shower head, more water will be used. On an average, 5L of water is used per minute of shower.

How many gallons of water does a family of 3 use per month?

Let's look at your daily per person usage. If you used 24,000 gallons, we'll divide by 3 people = 8,000 gallons per person per month. Let's divide 8,000 by 31= 258 gallons per person per day.
